Who Needs Toilet Paper – When the Going Gets Tough…March 23, 2020
Did Chicago Cubs fans give up, when on 8/8/88, after waiting
118 years for their first night game, it was rained out? Hell no.
Did the castaways give up hope or kill Gilligan, after he,
for years, screwed up every solid opportunity to be rescued? Hell no.
Did “Mad” Mike Hughes give up after his first (DIY) rocket
launch failed to prove that the earth was flat? Hell no.

CVS wants cash too. My checking account only has $16 in it.
The company never paid me back for the PBR I bought for the Board meeting.
Can you ask Pat in accounting to wire $1000 to my account so I can cash a check?
I M GOD, Westboro Baptists for AtheismFebruary 19, 2020
It might have gone like this in court:
- State of KY: But your honor, this is ridiculous. How can they compare Mr. Hart to our lord and savior? Jesus walked on water and raised the dead!
- Hart: I can do that.
- State of KY: Let’s see you!
- Hart: I’ll do it when the court witnesses Jesus do it.
Crackpots, Serial Killers and Flat EarthersNovember 6, 2019
Things are a bit different now. Any crackpot with a 6th grader’s knowledge of computers can design and launch a website, shoot, edit and post a You Tube video that is wrong in every sense of the word, and search the world for people who share their same fetishes, dopey ideas, or sick fantasies.
Nazis, the KKK, and The Angriest Yoga Master: Another Day at the OfficeJuly 24, 2019
Now hold on. Am I a Nazi or a Klansman? Make up your mind.
Good Omens, Bad DogmaJune 25, 2019
The effort to quash this series was great for TV, great for atheism, and great for America for the following reasons:
1. Uhh… Nexflix did not produce or air Good Omens. Amazon Prime did. So their original petition with 20,000 names on it was, at least initially, an embarrassing waste of time.
2. Christians still haven’t learned from past boycotts. The best way to heap tons of publicity on a creative endeavor is to protest it and boycott it! Martin Scorcese’s The Last Temptation of Christ, Robert Maplethorpe’s photography, and countless authors have benefitted from church prohibitions of their work. People instinctively flock to see what all the hubbub is about – which is a great boost in this age of media oversaturation.
C. If overzealous Christians are spending their time on TV shows, maybe they’ll have less time to try to tell a woman what to do with her body, fight environmental progress, or any number of harms they do to civilized society.
Ham’s ShamJune 17, 2019
How can you honestly expect the atheist community to get behind your project when the building and structure of your ark is so vastly different from Noah’s ark? Noah could follow simple instructions. Why wouldn’t you heed God’s word?
What you did is like doing Civil War reenactments with assault rifles and Kevlar jackets. Or depicting Galileo looking at the moons of Jupiter with a 14” Celestron telescope. The Ark Encounter is so inaccurate we simply can’t take it seriously.
Good Friday for AtheistsApril 19, 2019
Just because I don’t share religious beliefs with someone doesn’t mean I think that they should be harmed in any way. Quite to the contrary. If you feel the need to kill people because of a difference of opinion, you’ve lost the argument. Validity of beliefs should rest on the merits of the arguments, not the size of the spear.
SNL & Catholic ChutzpahMarch 12, 2019
Their response to the skit is unfathomable chutzpah. The acme of self-delusion.
You know the old definition of chutzpah: A kid kills his parents and then asks the judge for mercy because he’s an orphan.
The Catholic Church, from which I escaped relatively unscathed, has outdone itself. The Diocese of Brooklyn crying harassment & bias because someone mocked them for decades (centuries?) of child molestation is akin to John Wayne Gacy saying that he deserves a lighter sentence for hiring lots of teen boys who needed summer jobs.
Don’t Cross UsMarch 7, 2019
But noooooo. People – even those in our supposed-to-be secular government – are constantly trying to foist their particular religion on the rest of us – and have been for over 200 years. Placing crosses and 10 Commandments on public property is no different from gang-bangers tagging buildings in their neighborhood or dogs pissing on fire hydrants. It’s simply a form of marking turf and saying we are in charge here.
