  The Burden of Proof

Tired of losing debates? Maybe you're trying too hard. Another fascinating logic video from QualiaSoup.

I dunno. I put this video up in protest. I think this makes him look kind of badass and cool.

Thanks for bringing it all into perspective Jon!

Interesting concept. Look at actual American histotry to figure out where the concept of a "Christian Nation" came from.

From the earliest arrival of Europeans on America's shores, religion has often been a cudgel, used to discriminate, suppress and even kill the foreign, the "heretic" and the "unbeliever"--including the "heathen" natives already here. Moreover, while it is true that the vast majority of early-generation Americans were Christian, the pitched battles between various Protestant sects and, more explosively, between Protestants and Catholics, present an unavoidable contradiction to the widely held notion that America is a "Christian nation."

Way to go Jack! Jack may be a bit of a weirdo, like when he said hell was in black holes, but let's give credit where credit's due.

VAN IMPE: And right now, the National Association of Evangelicals informs us that this man has done damage, and it could actually take the lives of some of the missionaries in South America because the news media in South America is bombarding this thing across the airwaves around the clock. God forgive him.

Not only that, but Mr. Robertson, you are pro-life, and yet you wanted the members of the Supreme Court to die last year, and now the president of Venezuela. We believe this book: Thou shalt not kill; Exodus 20, verse 13. And my Bible says that this is wrong, and I want to challenge you right now to change your ways. Because we as Christians do not need an Osami [sic] Bin Laden leading us.

Insane Clown Possee's new syrupy video paves the way for their transformation to an X-tian cult.

The Posse is about to transform into a Christian cult.

Seriously, if you take the curse words out of the video and wipe that ridiculous clown makeup off the jackasses rapping, these dudes could make a (second) mint off touring the mega-church circuit with this song. But they don't need to, because they've got a big enough audience of incredibly and inexplicably devout followers start their own mega-church -- which is precisely what they plan to do.

That's right, we're calling it. Let the conspiracy-theorizing start here: ICP is turning their marketing savvy and army of dedicated followers into the next big Christian cult. Step aside Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons -- the Church of Jesus Christ, Latter Day Clown is on the rise.

A cute slideshow during the Prop 8 protests.

She's no longer an X-tian.

Unfortunately, I think she still believes in Jebus. Ah well... baby steps.

In a dramatic series of Facebook posts, novelist Anne Rice declared that she is no longer a Christian.

Check it out: "I quit being a Christian. I'm out. In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life. In the name of ... Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen."

Another excellent bit with Carl Sagan.

I'm offended by this. Porn is so much better than god.

To an atheist, God is like porn. And as you might imagine, God is everywhere online. At times, God's e-presence becomes quite overwhelming to the individual who is attempting to live a God-free life.

Now atheists can live a pure godless life online. No longer will you be led astray by the Holy Spirit or the Dalia Lama while doing Internet searches. You can overcome. And we can help. Why not take the temptation away from your computer and block all-things God from showing up in your online searches?

Well, assuming Jesus did exist ...

Any evidence that Jesus was left to die after being nailed to a cross is strikingly sparse - both in the ancient pre-Christian and extra-Biblical literature as well as The Bible.

Mr Samuelsson, a committed Christian himself, admitted his claims are so close to the heart of his faith that it is easy to react emotionally instead of logically.

Mr Samuelsson said the actual execution texts do not describe how Christ was attached to the execution device.

He said: "This is the heart of the problem. The text of the passion narratives is not that exact and information loaded, as we Christians sometimes want it to be."

Jesus did not die on cross, says scholar - Telegraph
