It's often challenging to be an atheist in a religious culture.  It's even more challenging when your parents are hard-core believers in God.  My own rows with family have colored the past five years, the most recent exchange ending with a message from my father informing me that, "Sorry, Seth, but there can be no fellowship with anyone who is an unbeliever."I mentioned this encounter recently online, and I've had several Christians (with the best of intentions) contact me in an effort to d...

Some in the atheist community are reluctant to participate in conventions because they don't want to look like a follower, a sheep, a conformist, and I always remind them of the following:  The church doesn't own co...

To the BBC, the United Kingdom, and for that matter, the Rest Of The Planet: The United States would like to apologize for his recent outbust on the BBC Sunday Politics show. We've tried to keep Alex Jones inside the fence, as he is rabid. Only a few days ago, he asserted that the U.S. government was launching tornadoes ("weather weapons") against us, this assertion being the latest in a long string of nonsensical ramblings. We know the situation is serious. We know the infection is probably ...

One candidate for Most Eye-Assaulting Website of the Year is for a "museum" that provides an "educational adventure" in the vein of Ken Ham's Creation Museum.  It's called "The World's Biggest Dinosaurs Museum." Now watch this. The website places degreed physicians at the top of their claims that "the theory of Darwinian evolution is fundamentally and fatally flawed." Benjamin S. Carson M.D. ("one of the world's most foremost pediatric neurosurgeons") is chief of pediatric neurosurgery at ...
