I have a Twitter account, and there’s nothing special about it except one nuisance: Dennis Markuze/David Mabus spams it constantly, creating dozens of new accounts every day and sending me hundreds of messages every day, typically repetitive stuff on the lines of “You are a NAZI!” and “We’re going to chop your head off!” It’s…

Do we really need another wretched Texas governor in the White House? Rick Perry wants to be our president, and he has the backing of Bryan Fischer. What a combination… Other countries of the world: watch out if this comes to pass. At that point, we’d officially be a pariah nation—your only salvation would be…

First evening in Dublin

The first panel (DPR Jones, Lone Frank, Richard Dawkins) at the Wotld Atheist Convention has got us off to a roaring good start. Lots of interesting discussion and disagreement within the panel and the audience, good questions, not too many audience manifestos. There is a delegation of Muslims here, one of whom stood up to…

They have an official wish list. it’s mostly “drill, baby, drill” and other heedless, short-term indulgences and catastrophes, but it also openly advocates ignoring science.
