Islamophobia and the Regressive Left: a Discussion

November 8, 2015

1

I rarely get into discussions on social media about atheism or politics. I usually try to avoid them. However, every once in a while something will get posted by a friend or acquaintance that is so fractally wrong and dangerous that I simply cannot refrain from commenting. I have absolutely no tolerance for the attempt […]

Book Review: Islam and the Future of Tolerance

Sam Harris is a highly polarizing figure that people usually associate with controversy. He isn’t afraid to voice his opinions on controversial subjects such as religion, terrorism, the ethics of torture, nuclear war, gun control, morality, and free will to name a few. Harris views these hot-button topics as some of the most important obstacles […]

Science, Civil Liberties, and The Bible

So, I’ve been patrolling a few Christian news websites in order to stay up-to-date on their wacky views regarding science, gay marriage, politics, and their overall lack of sanity.  I mostly just find drivel that’s not worth blogging about, but I occasionally find a piece so coffee-spitting ridiculous that I cannot pass it up.  Here’s […]

Michele Bachmann on evolution

As a follow-up to my last blog post “Michele Bachmann is an idiot,” I figured I would keep hammering away at her for her stupidity.  Anyone this stupid running for president needs to have their stupidity put on display as much as possible, for we all know that “news” programs such as Fox News fail […]

Michele Bachmann is an idiot

Michele “batshit” Bachmann is running for president.  This woman is more horrifying than Sarah Palin, and that’s truly saying something. Here’s Bachmann’s answer to the question, at the New Hampshire GOP Presidential Debate, “What 3 steps would you take to defund Obamacare and repeal it as soon as possible?” So. . . I am still […]
