South Park makes fun of Catholic molestation, and also atheists. (So relevant today, I didn’t realize at first it was released in 2002.)

Too easy: 12 Most Evil Pictures of Pope Ratzinger.

‘Silver Bullet’ has generously paid to produce a transcript of my interview with Stephen Maitzen. This is especially useful for philosophical interviews, as the arguments are occasionally hard to follow in audio. It’s great to now be able to scroll through the interview in searchable text.

Frontline: The Mormons. The epic history of a modern religion that succeeded. Watch it online.

I added 50 PDFs here. Why? Because I’m awesome, that’s why.

Antony Flew has died.

I’ve seen that Mormon series and can highly recommend it also. The success of Mormonism shows me how predisposed humans are to religious messages. If we think people were superstitious and credulous in the early 1800s, imagine how they were in Jesus’ time. Mormonism kills the idea that the successful spread of Christianity proves that it is true.

Also, check out the Frontline series on From Jesus to Christ

Antony Flew, responsible for lots of great ideas and writing, was also responsible for coining and describing the “No True Scotsman Fallacy”. Nice work.
