This is a hilarious tale from Puffho in which a preacher, is shocked by finding the Bible at Costco—an American chain that sells products cheaply and in bulk—labeled as FICTION! OMG! Costco recently roused the ire of Pastor Caleb Kaltenbach when he discovered a stack of Bibles with a ‘Fiction’ sticker at their Simi Valley, Calif. location. He told […]

In his accommodationist book Rocks of Ages, Steve Gould importuned both science and religion to keep their distance from each other: “Thou shalt not mix your magisteria.” But he didn’t say anything about mixing metaphors. Now that they’re starting to build atheist churches (a horrible idea), are we going to start making similar embarrassing errors […]
From Tariq Moosa (via Matthew Cobb and Marc Abrahams), who labeled this “still the stupidest Tweet I’ve ever seen”: I still have no idea what Chopra is talking about. It sure doesn’t qualify as a deepity, for it makes no sense on even a superficial reading. Let me know what you think the Woomeister is […]
A reader tw**ted my critique of David Dunn’s HuffPost article (you know, the one in which he argues that theology isn’t about God) to Dunn himself, and Dunn responded on Twi**er.

Over at Myrmecos, ant biologist and photographer Alex Wild uses this photo to explain why he voted for Obama: (original from Julius De Keizer)
Reader Chris sent me this photo he took at a talk by Richard Dawkins, along with a description (“GW” is “George Washington University”): Please see the attached photo taken outside the GW Lisner Auditorium where Richard Dawkins spoke last night (I was there!). Virginia, of course, is where I became an atheist. I suppose the […]
Catching up on draft posts, most of which will never see the light of day, I found this that I wrote about a week ago. Fortunately, it’s still highly relevant, for the eternal fight between state secularism and private religion continues. Reader gravityfly has informed me of a most momentous event with an important bearing […]
