Bill Donohue Calls Child Rape Victims "Gold Diggers"

In an outrageous radio interview the sweaty, bloated face leader of the catholic league, Bill Donohue, denies that child abuse occurred in Ireland, called the victims "gold diggers" and then tried to trivialise the scandal by bitching about how protestants weren't investigated and how we always pick on the poor little catholics.

This man is a seriously nasty piece of work and I'm frankly disgusted that catholics allow this fat shit to speak for them.

Catholics; Grow some balls, develop some integrity and exercise this morality you keep telling us about and publicly oppose everything this man says. Or would you rather, as you normally do, tow the party line and try to cover it up?

Richard Dawkins - The Greatest Show On Earth

Richard Dawkins new book The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution is available to pre-order from amazon now and is due to be released Sept 29th.

The book was initially going to be titled "just a theory?", which is a good title. But i think "the greatest show on earth" is better and really does sum up how fascinating evolution is.

So go and pre-order your copy of The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution now!

U.S Military Burn Bibles

Military personnel threw away, and ultimately burned, confiscated Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages amid concern they would be used to try to convert Afghans, a Defense Department spokesman said Tuesday.

The unsolicited Bibles sent by a church in the United States were confiscated about a year ago at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan because military rules forbid troops of any religion from proselytizing while deployed there, Lt. Col. Mark Wright said.

Such religious outreach can endanger American troops and civilians in the devoutly Muslim nation, Wright said.

"The decision was made that it was a 'force protection' measure to throw them away, because, if they did get out, it could be perceived by Afghans that the U.S. government or the U.S. military was trying to convert Muslims," Wright told CNN on Tuesday.

I smiled knowing how outraged the christian right will be.

Scientists Create Life - God Not Required

An elegant experiment has quashed a major objection to the theory that life on Earth originated with molecules of RNA.

John Sutherland and his colleagues from the University of Manchester, UK, created a ribonucleotide, a building block of RNA, from simple chemicals under conditions that might have existed on the early Earth.

The feat, never performed before, bolsters the 'RNA world' hypothesis, which suggests that life began when RNA, a polymer related to DNA that can duplicate itself and catalyse reactions, emerged from a prebiotic soup of chemicals.

"This is extremely strong evidence for the RNA world. We don't know if these chemical steps reflect what actually happened, but before this work there were large doubts that it could happen at all," says Donna Blackmond, a chemist at Imperial College London.
Now of course this doesn't necessarily mean this is exactly how it happened, but it does prove one thing; It proves that for a self replicating molecule - life - to form a magical man in the sky is not required. You just need the right chemicals, the right conditions and they can do it all by themselves.

So i wonder what dark corner the peddlers of the god of the gaps fallacy will relegate their god to now?

God Is Not Great - The Movie

I have just finished watching an interview Christopher Hitchens done on CBC's The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos in which Hitchens mentioned that he is planning to do a full length documentary film called "God is not great", based on his book of the same name, in which he will "go to the counties where the parties of god are throwing their weight around" and "go through the holy books showing that they are full of contradictions".

When Stroumboulopoulos asked if it was going to be an angrier version of the Bill Maher documentary "religulous" Hitches responded with "No, funnier..."

I think this film will be a welcomed addition to the atheist movies. First we had Dawkins' "root of all evil" which looked at the politics of religion, then we had Maher's "Religulous" which pointed out how wacky this religious stuff is and now we need to Hitchens to pitch up, tear religion a new arse hole and leave it rotting in the curb.

Prayer Explained By "Scientists" Using Made Up Bollocks

If you, like me, have wondered exactly how prayer is supposed to work you are in luck. Some stupid morons over at Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) have it all figured out. Now i know their numbers may appear to have been pulled out of thin air, but rest assured, their name has "science" in it, so I'm sure it's all above board, carefully researched and i expect them to release their data for peer-review any time soon, so look out for that in your favorite science journal.

Another Child To Die Because Of His Parents Primitive Superstitions

Daniel Hauser has what doctors consider one of the most curable types of cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma.

But the 13-year-old and his parents don't want him to have chemotherapy and radiation, the standard treatments. For the past three months, they have ignored the advice of his cancer specialists and turned to natural therapies, such as herbs and vitamins, instead.

Daniel, one of eight children, has asserted that treatment would violate his religious beliefs. The teenager filed an affidavit saying that he is a medicine man and church elder (at 13) in the Nemenhah, an American Indian religious organization that his parents joined 18 years ago.

James Olson, the Brown County attorney, has filed a petition accusing Daniel's parents, Colleen and Anthony Hauser, of child neglect and endangerment, and he has asked a judge in New Ulm to order the boy into treatment.

I wouldn't let these irresponsible parents look after a wooden spoon, let alone a sick child. I wish James Olsen the best of luck in his attempt to prevent them letting their son needlessly die.

There Is An Evangelical Cancer In The Military

Bill Maher talks on his show about the religious right infiltrating the US army to create "military missionaries". These assholes are turning an unjust war into a religious crusade by passing out bibles, comics showing Mohammad burning in hell and wearing t-shirts which read "this is a crusade".
