Socrates Meets Jesus

This is a great read. Long, but very interesting. Jesus is portrayed as giving the answers that Christians often do give to these sorts of questions. So it's really a sort of philosophy vs. Christianity discussion. Like I said, very interesting.

Back from the Rally for Reason

The rally was great! I'm glad I decided to go. Someone who was there recorded and posted this video on YouTube, and it give a pretty good picture of what went on. Enjoy:

The Rally for Reason

I'm going to the Rally for Reason tomorrow! I've just finished my signs-not bad for a beginner, IMHO :)

I made an announcement at my church and I'll see who comes. I got a lot of support from folks even though most of them had prior commitments to other sorts of activism or family activities (since tomorrow is Memorial Day).

Anyway, I'm excited!

Here is a link if you want to know more about the Rally for Reason.

This is just too funny!

First time I heard this guy I was listening to Freethought Radio and the song was called "Fuck the Creationists". The profanity in the song just made it funnier. This is not actually Steven Hawking (LOL) but last I heard he took it as it was intended, as a joke. I think it's a rather funny one, too.

Answers in Creation Site

Interesting, a old-earth Christian rebuttal to the young-earth Answers in Genesis people. I don't agree with them all the way (needless to say) but it's still a nice breath of fresh air to find some Christians who are not totally cut off from scientific fact.

No More Hornets: Atheist Jokes

LOL These are good:

No More Hornets: Atheist Jokes

Could the eye have evolved?

I'm pretty familiar with this claim by creationists that Darwin admitted that the eye could not have evolved. I used to believe them, but I grew up and wizened up and read The Origin of Species for myself. Darwin was only preempting this objection to his theory, but of course the creationists don't mention that he addresses the issue. I'm still shocked at the shamelessness and total dishonesty of creationists who tell impressionable kids (like I was) stuff like this.

It is because of things like this that I'm planning to go to the Rally for Reason and protest that monstrosity of a "Creation Museum."
