Chronicling the follies of religion and superstition, the virtues of skepticism, and the wonders of the real (natural) universe as revealed by science. Plus other interesting and educational stuff.

"Tell people there’s an invisible man in the sky who created the universe, and the vast majority believe you. Tell them the paint is wet, and they have to touch it to be sure."

-George Carlin

“If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed”.

-Albert Einstein

“Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense.”

-Carl Sagan

The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species. It may be a long farewell, but it has begun and, like all farewells, should not be protracted.

-Christopher Hitchens


Sick of the media ignoring us? Let's flood CNN and tell them.


 Someone recently said that if even a dozen Tea Partiers took to the streets of Manhattan, there would be two reporters to every one protester. The difference? These kids are protesting against the banking cartels, instead of on their behalf.

Followers, take one minute and send CNN a news tip (at the link above) on the Occupy Wall Street protest. Don’t let the tea party get all the attention.
