While slightly tongue in cheek it is still pretty convincing evidence that prayer does not work.

Top 25 Creationist Fallacies

ExtantDodo, YouTube atheist and evolutionary educator, Has a great video exposing the top 25 fallacious arguments used by cretinists along with examples and an explanation why they are fallacious. You will probably recognise most of these from any unfortunate encounters you have had with cretinists, But the video will definitely help you spot more in the future.

My advice is to never debate someone when the basis of their argument is fallacious, Simply point out the fallacy, explain why it's a flawed argument and request that they make a different, More logical and coherent point.

Isn't it ironic that the same people who try to convince us that our morality comes from their religion are also the most deceitful, devious and dishonest.

Hypocrite Pope Needs To Engage Brain And Shut Mouth

The Nazi pope, Benedict XVI, Has yet again put his foot in his mouth by condemning the "pagan" passion for money and possessions, Lol seriously.
Pope Benedict XVI condemned unbridled “pagan” passion for power, possessions and money as a modern-day plague Saturday as he led more than a quarter of a million Catholics in an outdoor Mass in Paris.

....Paraphrasing from the New Testament, Benedict decried “insatiable greed” and said “the love of money is the root of all evil.”

“Have not money, the thirst for possessions, for power and even knowledge, diverted man from his true destiny?” the pope asked.
After a long hard day demanding everyone do as he says and not as he does he no doubt went back to his enormous house, put on his tailor made silk pyjamas and relaxed in his solid gold throne.

I mean seriously, How are catholics not embarrassed with the hypocritical filth this shyster comes out with?

Evolutionary Origin Of Religion

Professor Richard Dawkins takes a question from the audience regarding the evolutionary origin of religion and how religion could have been beneficial, Evolutionary speaking.

His answer is an interesting one and uses the moth as an example of another way detrimental actions could result as a byproduct of otherwise beneficial behavior . He says that like how the moth flies into candle flames as a byproduct of it's evolution produced guidance system, religion in humans could also be a byproduct of an otherwise beneficial trait, Like trusting and believing what we are told as children by grownups. There is no evolutionary benefit to moths flying into flames and killing themselves, Just like there is no evolutionary benefit to believing in invisible dictators, But there is an evolutionary benefit to the programing that produces those particular behaviours.
