Does Atheism Have a Burden of Proof?

December 18, 2012


Originally posted on An American Atheist. All too often, arguments between theists and atheists end up with theists demanding that atheists disprove God. At first glance, this doesn’t seem like too much to ask, since atheists constantly ask for theists to prove that there is a God. If atheists can’t prove that there isn’t a […]

Why do Catholics believe in evolution?

November 9, 2011


Originally posted on An American Atheist. I first asked myself the above question when I attended a summer evolution institute at the University of California, Berkeley, titled “Think Evolution,” which consisted of a series of crash courses in current, frontier research in the field of evolution.  I received many amazing lectures from leading scientists in […]

The arrogant atheist

September 28, 2011

Here’s the latest installment of idiocy. […]

Norway terrorist not a “True Christian”

Science, Civil Liberties, and The Bible

July 25, 2011


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 […]
