Noah’s Farce

After I finished the Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism video series, I considered doing another related series on the Noachian flood. I wanted to do separate episodes showing how meteorology disproves the flood, (by which I mean physics, really.) how geology disproves the flood, and how archaeology, anthropology zoology, and even mythology disprove the flood. I […]

Target loses significant business because of trans-friendly bathrooms

Unfortunately, it appears bigotry is a good business strategy as boycotts of Chick-fil-a for donating money to organizations that opposed same-sex marriage caused the opposite of the intended effect. Sales to Chick-fil-a actually soared 14 percent (edit)after the company defiantly supported the “biblical definition of marriage.” To make matters worse, a business, like Target, taking a pro-LGBTQ equality […]

My presentation to the Secular Hub in Denver Colorado was my first speech as president of Atheist Alliance of America and my last opportunity to talk about politics before the election, which I felt compelled to do.

Some folks never learn

The infamous charlatan “Dr” Kent Hovind (with a worthless mail-order PhD) is opening another “Dinosaur Adventure Land”, this time in Alabama. Somehow hucksters like him always find rubes to donate money and property to keep lying in the guise of education. Otherwise he’d have to sell used cars, wonder drugs, or multi-level marketing schemes. As […]

What is faith?

I happened across a video of a couple of Christians reviewing my debate with John Lepp. They said it wasn’t very polished or professional on either side. I agree, but the biggest fault I have with myself is assuming that once I give the clues, my audience should be able to connect the dots and […]

Fact Checking Anti-Abortionist Carol Everett VS Lilandra Ra Debate

The United States has made some encouraging progress since I debated the question “Should Abortion be Legal?” Last year in October, I debated with staunch abortion opponent Carol Everett. Everett makes the rounds on conservative programs such as the 700 Club and Focus on the Family and also Fox News. Her group, the Heidi Group, networks and trains Crisis Pregnancy […]

Dillahunty vs. Giunta: Did Jesus Rise from the Dead

Matt Dillahunty will debate Blake Giunta tonight at the Bible and Beer Consortium Debate Series.   This is RationalWiki’s opinion on their last debate about the existence of god.  Apparently, his opponent plays with probability in a way that weights his conclusions about god more heavily and discounts natural explanations while leaving out other possibilities. He […]
