Five Years in, How’s the American-Muslim-Majority-in-Twenty-Years Trend Coming Along?

In 2010 and again in 2011, American conspiracy theorists insisted that “in twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. and Canada to elect the President and Prime Minister.” In the United States, that would take a population majority.

It’s 2015 now, five years in to that imagined twenty-year span. How’s the […]

Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan Found With Ritual Items In His Office

I would say that this is a weird and twisted thing for Sheriff David Morgan, who claims to be out to bust Wiccan ritual killers, to have on his desk, but then, the crusaders were Christian ritual killers. So, that makes them the good guys, right? […]

At end of last week, the local news media in Pensacola, Florida suddenly went silent on the story of the murder of Voncile Smith and her two sons, after sensationalistic claims by Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan about a blue moon Wiccan blood ritual were not matched by the actual evidence in the case.

Did Stephen Hawking Really Say that Believers in God are Standing on Ground as Solid as Scientists?

This morning, J. Clare Peteet posts the following in a comment to Irregular Times:

J Clifford, science admits it cannot tell us what caused the Big Bang….

The famous astrophysical scientist, Stephen Hawking, says, “Anyone who chooses to believe in a Universal Creator is standing on ground as solid as a scientist who denies Creative […]

Reasons not to trust the Creationist Reasons to Believe Website

In response to an article sharing news about the latest transitional fossil discovery (a four-legged snake from the ancient continent of Gondwana), creationist Paul Cawley left a comment recommending the website “Reasons to Believe” as a scientific resource regarding evolution:

Great science from a REAL group of scientists who just happen to be Christians too! […]

Creationists ask: “Where are the Transitional Forms?” Reality Responds Yet Again.

The Institute for Creation Research (which, if you look carefully, describes itself as a “biblical” religious “ministry”) asks a typical anti-evolution question:

Where are the transitional forms? Evolutionists sometimes brag that they have abundant evidence of transitions, but when pressed, the examples are almost always minor variations within a category, as expected within creation thinking, […]

Big Gods Followed Development of Big Societies, Rather Than Building Them, Suggests Cross Cultural Study
