I’m always a bit flabbergasted when people start making pronouncements about moral issues and backing up their claims with biblical proof. You may as well be saying that your beliefs are decisively supported by the ham sandwich you had for lunch. Qualia Soup dissects the inanity and lack of intellectual rigour of theists who claim […]Continue reading
I just keep posting about gender inequality, others say pfffff! what the heck I am talking about….

Prison is not supposed to be a walk in the beach. I understand that. People that commit offences need to be consequenced for their transgressions against what society deems to be the proper set of standards. Consequences should not include psychological torture, self-mutilation and degradation. “Supermax prisoners’ daily lives are chock full of alienating and […]Continue reading
Strap on the feedbags y’all. Because if you have not maxed out your gluttony meters yet have we got a deal for you. All the goodness of a cheese burger cradled in the sugary luxury of a glazed maple doughnut. 1500 calories and wating in quantity at a Fair near you… Oh! It is that […]Continue reading

Texas is one of the special states, they are individualistic, hardworking and have managed to elect one of the most loopy Governors in the world. Organizing a prayer rally to help the nation. Err… “Gov. Rick Perry called on Jesus to bless and guide the nation’s military and political leaders and “those who cannot see […]Continue reading
The following is an excerpt from John McMurtry’s book Value Wars – The Global Market Versus the Life Economy p. 40 – 41. The value-set that selects for the destruction of a human society is based on an absolutist first premise that whatever serves its unilateral globalization is good, and whatever obstructs or resists its […]Continue reading
Thank the Swedish for this lovely piece. Swedish Lyrics: Vem kan segla förutan vind? Vem kan ro utan åror? Vem kan skiljas från vännen sin Utan att fälla tårar? Jag kan segla förutan vind, Jag kan ro utan åror. Men ej skiljas från vännen min Utan att fälla tårar. Vem kan segla förutan vind? Vem […]Continue reading
Your musty christian tome says a lot of neat stuff. Let’s see, if we did not get to cherry pick the morality that suits us, what we would have to do. But then again, consistency is not really a big part of belief now is it? Thank you to Dammit Janet for the video […]Continue reading

It is not even a useful question anymore. Fox News might as well be renamed the Republican Party News Channel and get it over with. What they are doing more resembles propaganda than anything else. Liberal Viewer continues his expose on the foibles of faux news. And to think that a good segment of the […]Continue reading
Qualia Soup continues his series on Morality with a look at the bible and why it is not the place to go when looking for morality. At fourteen minuets it is long by youtube standards, but well worth watching.

Learning about how our culture operates is critical for enlightenment and understanding. Jill from I Blame the Patriarchy shares her view on consent within the culture. In this case, a simple link would not do, as I want to copy/paste this concise definition in another spot on the internet, maybe pissing off some MRA’s in […]Continue reading
The US debt crisis is being oversimplified. The message we here is we cannot pay our debts and therefore we need balance our spending and balance the budget.

Religion makes people do horrible things. Today we look at religion making people do horribly funny and obtuse contortions to history and biology. This abuse of fact, reason and common sense is sponsored by and completely underwritten by the nonsense you can find in the bible. However, it must be noted that this is […]Continue reading

Worried and misplacing your skepticism about science based medicine? This news article from the CBC is for you. “A Quebec woman rushed to hospital after […]Continue reading
This Friday’s interlude is a bit different only because I can say that I’ve also sung what you are about to watch. The Scene of the Drunken poet is not only comedic, but musically interesting as well. Listen in the chorus parts while the sopranos, alto’s, tenor’s and basses play with the melody line in […]Continue reading
