Purloined Jesus wafer returned to Church after legal threat

I didn’t realize how zealous the Catholic Church was in guarding its crackers. I guess that communion wafers, before they’re blessed, are just crackers, but once they’re blessed all bets are off. (By the way, a judicious bit of Googling reveals that the consecration of the wafers, and their transubstantiation into the body of Jesus, […]

Billboard of the week

From a tw**t by George Takei, whom many of you will recognize as the actor who played Sulu on Star Trek. The billboard is an ad urging males to get medical tests to prevent serious problems later, and refers to ahrq.gov, the website of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and […]

A militant atheist

This is the image that faitheists, accommodationists, and believers have when it comes to Our Own Satan. It was produced by Ben Goren, who calls it “Richard Dawkins, Militant Atheist,” who sent it with the note: The opening sentence of that execrable bit of nonsense by Nury Vittachi that you’ve got as the top post right […]

Cat-related prank played on coworker

Orthodox Church patriarch blesses a t.v. studio with a paint roller

This is funny, but also, I think, a good sign. According to the BBC, Patriarch Daniel of Romania’s Orthodox church has used a paint roller dipped in holy oil to bless a new broadcasting studio. The church, however, calls the roller a “sanctification rod”: The ceremony did not go unnoticed by Romania’s press and internet […]

Chopra follows up his Million Dollar Challenge, and a short parody

Deepak Chopra desperately needs treatment for Maru’s Syndrome, for he simply can’t stay out of the box. In the last couple of day’s he’s put up two more videos on Randi’s “The Amazing Meeting” (TAM) and Chopra’s own Million Dollar Challenge, in which—mocking James Randi—Deepakity offers a cool million to anyone who can “explain” the Hard Problem of Consciousness (the […]

Is the devil in Lebanon, Missouri?

Here’s an update on the poll taken by the Lebanon Daily Record on Principal Lower’s graduation prayer.  As you may recall, the paper polled readers about whether Lower’s prayer was appropriate for graduation.   You can see the results by going to the Lowery-loving column by Katie Hilton, “Hats off for Lowery!“, and then clicking back to “home” […]

Die Tiere auf Deutsch

This was highlighted in a tw**t from Tamsin Edwards, via Matthew Cobb. It’s accurate, as far as I know. I love “Meerschweinchen” (“little ocean pig”) as the name for guinea pig. Where did that come from? And “Lazy animal” for “sloth” is great. Which reminds me of a story: A city girl was visiting a farm for […]

Two cars

These are the true heroes of atheism, although an even bigger hero would be someone sporting a cross on a car in Saudi Arabia. At any rate, this car will not survive intact for long! And some humor, and perhaps it’s a PhotoShop job. You’ll recognize the cat, I hope:     h/t: Barry

Pentagon plans for zombie invasion

No, that’s not a joke. It’s reported on CNN, in a piece called “Pentagon document lays out battle plan against zombies,” and it’s not April 1. Moreover, there’s a Pentagon document to prove it. Yes, citizens of the U.S., these are your tax dollars at work. You can look at the whole document, “Conplan 888“, and it’s […]
