When I heard recently that the Scottish Qualifications Authority was considering Intelligent Design in any way, shape or form for science curriculum, I got hopping mad. America, I can see. Scotland, my homeland, even with its Calvinist past should know… more »

Haggard Now "Completely Heterosexual"

Oh, this is rich... Haggard's been cured...? "He is completely heterosexual," Ralph said. "That is something he discovered. It was the acting-out situations where things took place. It wasn't a constant thing." Fortunately, they do also address the… more »

Musings On The Far-Right-Wing/Fundamentalist Connection

A thought struck me when deep in good conversation with a friend of mine the other day that the seemingly strong association between right wing philosophy and fundamentalist Christianity is one of a particular match-up with philosophy. This is partly… more »

Possum # 1 Versus Minister

There has been an interesting little saga going on over at Atheist in a Mini-van, regarding an incident where one of the bloggers' two young ones (Possum # 1) write a surprisingly eloquent essay in respond to a 'surprise essay' (much like a surprise… more »

Billions Of Gaps!

Pat over at Red State Rabble just had to find something else someone said to make my blood boil! The joke that we have been making for the past many years is that every time we discover a fossil that fills in a missing link, we've just created two… more »

Liddle Stirs It Up

I must admit, after seeing the sort of commentary and reaction she generated with her extremely well-spoken remarks about evolutionary theory, Elizabeth Liddle has earned herself a new fan. Well, there's actually a line-up of fans now; I might just be… more »

Identify the Creationist Quiz

Admittedly, this is a little harder than your average quiz on identifying various kinds of creationists, with the addition of odder categories like Omphalos Creationist and Vedic Creationist, but it pays to know your creationists. What would this be?… more »

Hot Chick Tracts

I must admit, I like this idea. Jack Chick tracts made into video, under the title "Hot Chicks". Well... I must admit, I only like the idea with the intentions of parody aforethought. The art of parodying Jack Chick reminds me of the wonderful… more »

Psalm 82

I was wandering around in other peoples' blogs, and ran across what seemed like a very odd quote indeed: When God, or Yaweh, or Elohim, or any of his buddies from Psalm 82 gets off his ass and comes down and knocks on my door, I'll be open to the idea.… more »

The Brick Testament

Wow, talk about a labour of... well, some combination of emotions which may have included part love and part obsessive-compulsive disorder. I'm talking about the Bible done entire in lego. (From a link on the Divine Afflatus) When my mother was… more »

No Free Hunch

In following the "Intelligent Design" debate, when I'm not getting a bit sick to my stomach, I must admit to being thankful for the occasional humourous distraction. The No Free Hunch list (a take off on Dembski's paper "No Free Lunch", which I've… more »

Simpsons : The Monkey Suit Episode

I didn't really think the Simpsons would take on a stronger evolution versus creationism episode... but they did, and while the ending was a little bit 'diluted' from my own views, all in all, I'm pretty impressed at the way it was handled. The… more »

The Gospel of Judas

After just having read "Misquoting Jesus", it's interesting that another manuscript discovery, though it has been around for a while, is being revealed right around now. It is the Gospel of Judas, and implies in this Gnostic text that Judas was fully… more »

Of all places that should be relatively immune to Intelligent Design Conjecture, but there's work afoot trying to get a bill through again that would make Intelligent Design part of the curriculum. That these bills come up so often and get so far is… more »
