    They should include Steve Wells’s book “Drunk with Blood – God’s killings in the bible” and Dan Barker’s “God- the most unpleasant character in all fiction” as adjunctive texts.

    My favorite things to discuss with bible thumpers are Lot’s experiences in the cave after Sodom and Gommorah (Old Testicle) and Jesus’s treatment of the fig tree (New…[Read more]

    We’ll see how balanced things are when a Muslim school, or a declared non-religious school asks for the same consideration.

    Just curious: where’s the balanced part of our current understanding of the Second Amendment in the context of “well-regulated militia”?

    A believer in heaven and/or hell who is true in their belief would NOT
    risk eternity in hell to lie, curse their god, cheat, HATE, or kill…

    I would agree with this except for the ol’ get-out-of-jail-free card: “forgiveness”. We can probably never know which of those who display the listed behaviors do so because they are really n…[Read more]

    It simply amazes me that anyone follows these ridiculous rules. I took a look around the linked web site and found one instance of breathtaking made-up idiocy after another. These are perhaps best represented by this:

    The truth about flossing:
    You don’t have to floss all your teeth…
    just the ones you want to keep!

    I’m a dentist. The lack of RCTs of the effectiveness of parachutes is a good analogy.

    When I was majoring in chemistry in the early 1970s, I took 2 years of German because I was advised one couldn’t do chemistry without it. I seem to have been misinformed. But I did find what a beautiful spoken language it is, and I learned more about English grammar by studying German than I ever learned in English class!

    I also had 7 years of…[Read more]

    “Rap Music” is an oxymoron, like “jumbo shrimp”, “military intelligence” and “postal service”.

    Don’t forget the sage advice of Matthew 6:

    6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are:
    for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of
    the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They
    have their reward.

    6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and…

    @3… That’s why I like that site: it shows those (insert worst possible expletive here) for what they are. Ridicule is a powerful weapon. What’s depressing to me is not the web site itself, but that there are ostensibly intelligent people who hold those views.

    But now researchers have revealed that females are able to influence
    which males will succeed in fertilising their eggs.

    Don’t let Todd Akin hear this or he might think he was right all along! (See “Legitimate Rape”, way down the chart HERE.)

    I always thought it wasn’t very nice of Jesus to curse the fig tree for not having any fruit because “…the time of figs was not yet.”* But according to this article (in the 5th paragraph), fig trees produce fruit year-round to accommodate the wasps that pollinate the flowers. So… were the wasps to blame? Had someone else harvested all the…[Read more]

    Also, FWIW, flossing is not mainly for removing food bits from between the teeth, though that is certainly one of its uses. It is primarily to remove placque, a bacterial biofilm that forms on all tooth surfaces that are not subjected to abrasion. That is why, somewhat counter-intuitively, even the backs of the last teeth in the arch must be…[Read more]

    “You don’t have to floss ALL your teeth… just the ones you want to KEEP!” – old proverb

    @Dan (#15)

    Jefferson’s suggestion that we question God’s existence because it is
    reasonable to do so and that God, if there is one, would prefer that
    we be reasonable rather than superstitious (driven by blind fear)
    makes no sense whatsoever.

    I dunno… I see it as a rather elegant refutation of Pascal’s Wager.

    @ eejit (#8)…

    “Putative is not a synonym for potential.”

    No, the OP is much more presumptuous than that! See definition:

    generally considered or reputed to be.

    “the putative father of a boy of two”

    synonyms: supposed, assumed, presumed;

    In someone’s mind, he’s already won the election.

    @ 31 and any others mentioning Noah gathering “two of each”… that’s only the “unclean” animals. Read the Book (Genesis):

    7:2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

    7:3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female;…
