Barak Obama Supports Religious Discrimination?

This article from Jennifer Loven of AP is about how Barak Obama has started pandering to evangelicals. I have not talked about presidential politics much on this Blog or in my Videos for good reason. I am so frustrated with the choices. On the left, we have a person who talks about change but seems to engage in the same political tactics as everyone else. On the right, we have an ancient politician who started out in the center but seems to be running to the right so fast, I can barely make him out.

Louisiana Takes a Step Back into the Dark Ages

This is really dangerous. The problem with this sort of legislation is that it will allow religious zealots to attempt to inject their religion in to the schools under the guise of critiquing a scientific theory. I have said this before, but these people are not trying to make sure that their own kids are taught about creation, they are trying to make sure that your kids are taught about creation. They will tell you that they are concerned about their own kid’s education but that is a bold faced lie.

Woot! 200 Subs and Questions

Wow! 200 Subs! Dang!

It seems weird to me that there are 200 people who want to hear what I have to say. The fact is, I am not sure that the types of people I want to reach are the ones that actually subscribe to my channel. Not that I don’t want subscribers. I definitely do. It’s just that, what I hope to do with this blog and with this channel is open up some minds to the fallacies of religion.

The Truth about Atheism and Atheists

Most people do not know what or who Atheists are. Many preachers, both Christian and otherwise, say things about atheists that are simply not true. Perhaps it is from ignorance but I think, in most cases, it is from a desire to denigrate and demonize a group that represents the antithesis of what they believe and want their congregations to believe. Preachers have a vested interest in keeping their “flock” close and convincing them that groups outside theirs are somehow unsavory.
