What if the Right was Right? A Reflection on the "Christian States of America." (Updated) - *shudders*

Peerless Pterosaur Could Fly Long-Distance For Days

Troops buck historical trend by saying gays OK - That really should be the last hurdle.  It won’t be.  (see DADT study)

How Much Does Birth Order Shape Our Lives?

American Atheists: You KNOW it’s a Myth! - Statistics show that nearly 50 million Americans are atheists.” ...and growing.  

Victor Stenger: Questions for a New Atheist: Part 1 & Part 2 - I think I like Stenger’s book The New Atheism: Taking a Stand for Science and Reasonthe best out of the major New Atheist publications.

Please, Don’t Appeal to Quantum Physics to Propagate Your Pseudoscience - Ya hear that, Chopra?

The Big Religion Chart - This is a useful and interesting guide, however, I am irritated at the inclusion of atheism as a religion.  Do we have to review the definition again?

Moses Was Tripping - Well, not Moses, but the guy who dreamed up Moses.

Palin's reckless views on obesity - The Right is so pathetic they will criticize anything the Left does; especially the Obamas.  Is commenting on and criticizing this really worthy of  an honest person’s time? No, of course not.  That says a lot.
