Hi, This is Lilandra. It’s been a while since I have posted. Since my last post, I nearly finished with a degree in Science Writing at Johns Hopkins. Special thanks to Dale McGowen, our leader at Patheos Nonreligious, for writing me a recommendation. Aron has also been working away at a Bachelor’s in Anthropology at […]
Report on TetZooCon
Post report on the Tetrapod Zoology Conference and PEP update. Hi. I’m Steve (Owen), the project manager for/of (?) the Phylogeny Explorer (Project) – you know, that big web of string that Aron has created, with little knots in it that all have strange Latin names, that he somehow thinks people might be interested in […]
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 […]
Pence the Dence
On July 11th 2002, Mike Pence, then representing Indiana’s 6th congressional district, testified before the House of Representatives that public schools should teach the theory of evolution as if it were only one of multiple hypotheses regarding the origins of species. Now that Trump the Chump has chosen Pence the Dense as his vice presidential […]

Secular Pro-Life “Fetus Worshippers”?
Should we defend freethinking spaces from anti-choicers like Secular Pro-Life? I wanted more information on this organization as I have seen them at conventions. Lucky for me, I know you-tuber True Pooka, who as he will tell you, shares the same concern. He has more experience investigating anti-choice groups than I do. He has shown […]
Breaking Love and Reproductive Rights Out of the Christian Frame
I have been pleasantly surprised that the youtube comments on my speech on The Heart of Humanism at The Southern California Secular Humanism Conference are mainly addressing the topic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oJB0bH_1EQ Especially because I addressed how secularists need to examine where their beliefs about love in particular may be influenced by Christian culture such as ideas […]
Tips on Evangelizing Evolution from Aron Ra
Ray Comfort noticed that a lot of atheists visited his Facebook page, and it occurred to him that he could train other Christians to witness to the “unsaved”. “The average Christian can’t stand on a soapbox at a university and preach, but he or she can now engage the unsaved and have their comment read […]
Why did I think I could watch this video about Fish Tongue Eating Isopods?
Warning! Do not be fooled by the cartoon fish.It is not for the squeamish. Thanks to Meg of The Thinking Atheist for the scare… This is Meg with a video for you to share the next time one of your friends starts in about how a god must have made the world because look at […]
A new meaning for right-brained vs left brained
I hardly have time to do or read anything anymore, so I haven’t read the associated study behind this article from Discover magazine, only the article itself. Past experience has taught me to cautious of conclusions based only on that. The interesting implication herein is that having more gray matter in the anterior cingulate cortex […]
