The Vacuous "Good Person" Test

On a website registered to Lehigh Valley Baptist Church, the "Good Person Test" is a textbook example of that particular kind of monochromatic religious reasoning that just falls down under light dissection. It aims to gently but firmly pinch you by the… more »

Expelled Blog Moderation On Hiatus

They are normally fairly timely with moderating comments over on the Expelled! movie blog but, unusually, the moderation has been out of commission there for over a week and a half so far. Now it could be that there is just one guy and he went on… more »

Wirthless Expelled Review

Based on the misrepresentations in the Expelled! movie, reason tells me that a unilaterally positive review is liable to partake of a number of factual inaccuracies in the movie, and add its own bad conclusions. Well, one out of one so far. In a… more »

Satan Loves Low Cholesterol

Someone reposted a Kent Hovind video about the dangers of evolution. There was one slide that just caught my eye, because it was sitting in the freeze frame, ostensibly showing the evil population control that will be foisted upon us all: Reduce birth… more »

Expelled! Race-Baiting Hooks A Few

Ah, Expelled! We knew it was going to be a propaganda-laden train-wreck from the start, despite repeated protests that because we hadn't even seen the movie, we were missing the point, or what have you. Well, it's an intellectual farce, and there are… more »

In Which Ben Stein Shows His Edumacation

I've been a little preoccupied answering and posing questions over on the Expelled! blog. It's a blog related to the upcoming movie, Expelled!, which purports to show how "mean Big Science" is "unfairly oppressing" "noble truth-seeking Intelligent… more »

Levantine

I doubt that I would see eye to eye with Ezra Levant on many things. The Reform Party is pretty antithetical to my views, and even within the Reform Party context, I thought Preston Manning was a gentleman, and Stockwell Day, whom Ezra supported, was a… more »

Devil Delusion

I can only be civil for so long. *sigh* Pope Ratzi is getting the troops back in the ready for the War On Satan. UPDATE: The director of the Vatican Press Office is denying Father Gabriele Amorth's report: "Pope Benedict XVI has no intention of… more »

More On Craig Chandler

It has been a little bit tough to find detailed information on what exactly Craig Chandler, the controversial candidate whose comments have landed him in hot water - with Premier Ed Stelmach initiating a formal review - said to get himself in such hot… more »

Strange Bible Verses: Numbers 22:8-35

(NOTE: Update about this story at the end of this post) There are a number of odd tales in the Bible, but some of them are odder than others. The tale of Balaam and the talking donkey is an odd one, but not just for the talking donkey. This is a tale… more »

A Week Of Anti-Science Nutjobs

Wow, it's been a banner week so far, and it's only half over! In recent news... Adnan Oktar, the nut behind the pen name Harun Yahya, distributor of glossy, expensive textbooks full of creationist fantasy, got the Turkish courts to have the entirety… more »

Evolution Is Not "A Fantasy"

The lady who plastered anti-evolution billboards around Minnesota has a website. It is full of, as I would deem it, anti-evolution propaganda, including various quotes mined out of context. Some of them might seem quite damning, like Brian Goodwin's… more »

Parade of Foolishness
