Why I Am A Creationist 3

Inevitably, someone accuses me of being a Creationist simply because I was raised that way. If I’d been born into the Muslim world, I’d be a Muslim, they say. If I’d been born into one of USAmerica’s Coastal Ignorance belts, I’d be a godless liberal. Et cetera ad nauseam. The problem with this analogy is…

Darwin’s Dyke: What the Fossil Record Actually Shows

How many times have you heard this? “The fossil record proves evolution!” It doesn’t. Let me tell you why. Hey, I’ll even show you. What the Geological Strata Charts don’t tell you. Now, the picture we’re usually given to illustrate how evolution is demonstrated shows a cross-section of geological strata and some corresponding text to…

Darwin’s Dyke: So much depends on Evolution: On Philadelphia’s Year of Evolution, Darwin Day & the New Desperation of Darwinism

“So much depends on evolution,” claims yearofevolution.org, a website showcasing the University of Pennsylvania and the Penn Museum’s intent to make a year-long celebration of Darwinism. The claim is common to Darwinist polemics, so it’ll be useful to critique the claims of the site. First, we should ask, What actually depends on evolution? Well, that depends on…

Palin makes McCain more palatable

McCain pulled an end run around the Democratic ticket when he announced Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential co-runner! The thing that really irritated the Dems on this one is that it completely took the wind out of their sails, especially when it was announced in the midst of the Democratic National. Now that’s good…

Paganism & The Renaissance Festival

On my recent vacation, I attended the opening day of the Ohio Renaissance Festival. I’d been to this one about 7 years ago, so I kind of knew what to expect. There’s a few distinct groups who go to Ren Fairs: the performers and merchants [who often travel from fair to fair], Goths, metalheads, medieval…

I am Sirius Knott

In the beginning, I made a choice and I chose anonymity. I had hoped that by hiding my true identity that I could eliminate or at least minimize the initial bias one usually encounters the moment one states an opinion. I had hoped to let the ideas and arguments speak for themselves.  To a large extent,…

Independence Day: The antiDarwin Day

This post has been merged into Darwin’s Dyke, posts that explore the weaknesses of Darwinism. At the first of this month, we “celebrated” the 150th anniversary of [the lie called] naturalism’s biggest hero. Nevermind that there aren’t enough fingers in the world to fill in the cracksof Darwin’s Dyke. They carefully preserve a dead theory…

The Church of PZ “Wackaloon” Myers & Ideological Child Abuse

Yes, the title of this blog is inflammatory. Yes, it’s on purpose. I hope I have your attention. Recently, I made a comment defending Ken Ham after PZ Myers of Pharyngula fame called him a “wackaloon” and then invited “millions” [dream on, PZ. Neither you nor Darwinism is THAT popular] of others to pour some…

PZ Invites Insult to Ken Ham. My Response.

Recently, PZ Myers of Pharyngula fame called Ken Ham a “wackaloon.” Understandably, Mr. Ham called him to the mat for his lack of professional courtesy [You see, professionals attack the subject matter, not the person they’re debating.] and for his lop-sided bias against Christians. [The only intolerance still allowed.] Ken Ham’s rebuttal is priceless, btw. So…

Atheists & Evolutionists: They Always Appeal To A Higher Power

Has anyone else noticed this somewhat endearing trend amongst atheists and evolutionists? Whenever they’re boxed into a corner and can’t answer a bleeding argument, they nearly immediately invoke some sort of “super-atheist,” some sort of fundie neoDarwin apologist, some member of the oft-described “better/smarter men than I” club. Be it richarddawkins.net, talkorigins or their favorite antitheistic author…
