Steve Harvey: Moron

I love the delicious irony of someone saying that atheists are idiots while demonstrating their complete lack of understanding of the concept of evolution.

Then again, we’re talking about a guy who is on this 3rd marriage and wore a hi-top fade wig for years, but still feels justified in writing an advice book, so…you  know.

The idiocy starts at about 3:53.


The latest in automobile anti-theft: Jesus Christ.

OK, car-owning Christians.  This is getting out of hand.  Not only does God have to worry about being your co-pilot, he has to provide you with an anti-theft device too? This was in the window of an SUV in Hollywood.  (I guess Jesus has no problem with gas guzzlers?)

Also, I stole this person’s stereo and Jesus did nothing.  They should get a trunk monkey. 






There is no God


Everything You Know About God Is Wrong


This massive book systematically reveals the distortions, myths, and utter weirdness that have been shoved down our throats by organized religions of all stripes, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, new religions, and others who want to keep their lucrative franchises intact.

Russ Kick has assembled an unprecedented arsenal of writers, reporters, and researchers to invade the inner sanctum for an unrestrained look at the wild and wooly world of organized belief.

Russ Kick is one of the few things that I liked about Tucson. He runs a website, The Memory Hole, and edits books for Disinformation. This is their latest.

(Full disclosure: A piece that I wrote about necrophilia is included in Everything You Know About Sex is Wrong.)


Hitchens v Sharpton

Those fanatical atheists

Columnist Dan Gardner writes a thoughtful, cogent rebuttal to the throngs of people who have taken to attacking the “new atheists” like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens.

Then there’s the problem on the other side — among the atheists such as Richard Dawkins who have been labelled “fanatics.” Now, it is absolutely true that Dawkins’ tone is often as charming as fingernails dragged slowly down a chalkboard. But just what is the core of Dawkins’ radical message?

Well, it goes something like this: If you claim that something is true, I will examine the evidence which supports your claim; if you have no evidence, I will not accept that what you say is true and I will think you a foolish and gullible person for believing it so.

That’s it. That’s the whole, crazy, fanatical package.

Crazy, huh?


Christianity jumps the shark

Kirk Cameron–yes, that Kirk Cameron–and Ray Comfort, author of God Doesn’t Believe in Atheists, will debate two atheists to be named later.

ABC has said that they will film the debate, which will take place on May 5 in New York City, and will stream it live on their website as well as use footage for their program Nightline. Martin Bashir, co-anchor of Nightline, will moderate the event.

Wouldn’t it be great if Horshack just happened to be an outspoken Atheist?


A Brief History of Disbelief

Doesn’t look like KCET is showing this. No matter. I’m sure I’ll be able to find it somewhere out there on the internets.

A Brief History of Disbelief with Jonathan Miller premieres May 4th, 2007 on Public Television in the U.S. (Check local listings).

A Brief History of Disbelief is a deeply intelligent and rational journey through the highly divisive topic. Written and narrated by acclaimed British intellectual Jonathan Miller — author, lecturer, TV producer/host, director of theater, opera and film, and neurologist — A Brief History of Disbelief originally aired on the BBC in the U.K. It was the first-ever historical look at the controversial topic on television.
