James Kirk Wall responds to Ray Comfort’s faith attack on science

It’s not difficult to defeat a creationist in argumentation who claims that their position is founded on science and reason. You don’t need to be a scientist or get into the weeds of DNA.

Lightning God murdered by science. Who’s next?

It used to be thought that when a terrible lightning storm caused wreckage and fires to towns that it was the result of an angry god.

Activist Zack Kopplin and Senator Karen Carter Peterson lost a third bid to repeal the so called Louisiana’s Science Education Act.

Moses – The celebrated baby killing psychopath of the Bible

If someone was to include Adolf Hitler in a mini-series that portrays him as a noble and admirable man by deliberately and completely removing anything about his cruel persecution of innocent people there would be absolute outrage.

Debunking the probability argument for god

We live in a universe of trillions of stars that after billions of years was able to support carbon based life forms on a miniscule fraction of planets. Most places make life impossible because of the amount of radiation, cold or heat and yet since life isn’t impossible everywhere, theists argue that everything must have... Read more »

All Christians and Muslims carry extremism

Every Christian and Muslim promotes extremism. That’s not what we hear of course. We hear over and over again about how most Christians and Muslims are warm, wonderful and fantastic human beings, and it’s true.

You know Harris, and Sagan, and Carlin, and Dawkins, Tyson, and Maher, and Ayaan, and Hitchens, but do you recall the greatest Bible bashing heathen of all? Agnostic, atheist, heretic, heathen, humanitarian, free thinker, call him what you will. In the battle of individual liberty over religious dogma there has been no greater warrior than... Read more »
