  • Atheist Quotes

    I have something to say to the religionist who feels atheists never say anything positive: You are an intelligent human being. Your life is valuable for its own sake. You are not second-class in the universe, deriving meaning and purpose from some other mind. You are not inherently evil--you are inherently human, possessing the positive rational potential to help make this a world of morality, peace and joy. Trust yourself.
    Dan Barker

    He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; he that dares not reason is a slave.
    William Drummond

    The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
    Richard Dawkins

Micro, Macro And Darwinism Foolishness


I have been hearing these comments many times lately. For the most part I have heard them from fundajelical Christians who claim microevolution happens while there is no possible way macroevolution could happen. Also for some reason they continue to call the modern theory of evolution Darwinism as if there have been no advances in the theory and it was finalized by Darwin in 1859. It is also interesting to notice that fundajelicals often call evolutionary theory Darwinism as if they are saying “yes, we have an irrational belief in a religion but you have an ‘ism’ too.” The saddest part is that I have heard these same three statements made by a self-proclaimed agnostic that believes in an intelligent creator (which means he is a theist not an agnostic). Since these mistaken beliefs are apparently so widespread, I figured writing an article addressing them would be a very good idea. Continue reading

Two Rants


I have had two very different topics brought to me. One is the pseudo-intellectual question “why is there something instead of nothing” and the other is just the general Christian opposition to abortion. Maybe it’s just the time of year but I just have to rant on those two topics. Continue reading

Nephilim


Something about the Nephilim in the bible never sat well with me. We are introduced to them in Genesis 6 and pretty much they were one of the reasons mentioned that god in 6:17 and again in 7:4 that he was going to destroy every living thing except what was on the ark. Besides a teeny thing called lack of evidence the story never made much sense to me. Continue reading

How Science Works And Some Logical Fallacies


Recently I have gotten a few emails through my contact form from three Christians saying that evolution has not been proven a fact and never will be. Then they went on essentially like good little soldiers in unison claiming that since evolution was never proven goddidit must be true. Besides being an either or fallacy, they all expressed a profound misunderstanding as to what science is and that prompted me to write this article. Continue reading

Evolution Will Be Falsified Within 100 Years?

Tiktaalik

Again I have been told  by a Christian fundagelical out here that evolution will undoubtedly be falsified within the next century. I really didn’t follow her ‘logic’ so I asked her to explain. Continue reading

Dinosaur Tracks, Paluxy River, Texas

Dinosaur Tracks

Once in a while I hear a Young Earth Creationist make that claim. Sometimes they even claim there is proof down in the Paluxy river outside of Glen Rose Texas. A few years ago I found myself near Dallas so my girlfriend (at the time) and I  decided to take a trip to the Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose which is about 70 miles away from Dallas. Continue reading

Synthetic Life


I have heard time and again the tiresome creationist canard that life can’t be created in a lab. I have heard it again yesterday and it really irritated me to no end. Why was it so irritating this time? Besides being said by the same lady I wrote about in my article Evolution And Speciation, I have written two articles dealing with the subject and was reading a fascinating paper on the subject at the time.
