BREAKING: Atheist science professor doesn’t like religion! In a recent piece for National Geographic, Book Talk curator Simon Worrall entitled his headline, “In Age of Science, Is Religion 'Harmful Superstition'?” For the answer, he gave platform to Jerry Coyne, author of Faith vs. Fact: Why Science and Religion Are Incompatible . Coyne, an atheist and University of Chicago professor of Ecology and Evolution, answered, among other questions, why “are religion and science incompatible.” In his beginning questions, Worrall asked Coyne how, as an evolutionary biologist, “does your day job inform your views on religion?” “[T]here are a number of things... continue reading
Liberals raged on Twitter yesterday, coming to the support of a Muslim woman who complained about how she was treated on a recent United Airlines flight from Chicago to Washington, D.C. Tahera Ahmad posted on Facebook that she was “in tears” after being discriminated against United Airlines staff and passengers for simply asking for an unopened can of Diet Coke. According to Ahmad, she asked for an unopened can of soda for “hygenic reasons” but was refused that request by the flight attendant. After several more requests by Ahmad, the flight attendant explained she couldn’t do that because it could... continue reading
It’s no secret that 1960s rock star turned environmentalist-musician Neil Young of Buffalo Springfield fame uses his celebrity status to push political agendas. In recent years he’s attacked oil and fracking , and soon Young will release an entire album entitled “The Monsanto Years” attacking genetically modified foods. Such fear mongering about GMOs has become popular in spite of more than 2,000 studies that found them “as safe or safer than conventional or organic foods.” Young’s music video for the song, “A Rock Star Bucks a Coffee Shop,” he delivers this jab, “I want a cup of coffee but I... continue reading

If Christianity is the subject, TIME gives a crap … literally. This Friday, TIME published a story about a 1996 painting of the Madonna by contemporary British artist Chris Ofili. ‘The Holy Virgin Mary’ is encrusted with elephant dung and surrounded by cutouts of female genitalia from porn magazines. It’s a degrading, insulting portrayal. Naturally, TIME published a color photo of it. Time spent most of the article noting Ofili’s accomplishments, from his winning of the Turner Prize to the increasing value of the painting. An auction house in London has now estimated it to be worth over $2 million... continue reading
