The best argument for god

I am apprehensive about posting this video. It’s from a woman at The Amazing Meeting who asked other skeptics what their view of the best argument for god is.

The sound is shitty. The picture is uncorrected. There are some interesting answers intermittently, but none are great.

It seems like a good video to broadcast.

But I wish it were a little higher in production value.

Just sayin’.

About the video:

Robin Marie from An American Atheist asks TAM 9 participants what is the best argument they have ever heard for God. Featuring Lawrence Krauss, James Randi, Mr. Deity, Rebecca Watson and more!



Deflated honk. John Shore, this is a public apology

Liberal Christian blogger John Shore (@johnshore) deserves a public apology for my offensive and asshole post found here.

I called John Shore a “Gigantic Douche” and an asshole, because the egocentric me thought he had found a way to censor his facebook page.

Apparently, that wasn’t the case. I jumped the gun. I posted a vitriolic ad hominem attack, and John Shore certainly didn’t deserve that level of assholery directed at him for something outside of his control.

Wow. I’m a shithead, right?

For what it’s worth, John Shore, I’m sorry for all the evil I wrote. It was awful. And it’s very unbecoming behavior coming from any person whatsoever.

My flower blossoms turned black in one fell swoop.

John Shore, I shouldn’t have publicly humiliated myself in an attempt to publicly humiliate you. It was pathetic air stabbing. I imagine you feel frustrated and embarrassed for me.

Dear readers, I apologize to you as well. I let you down. That’s not cool.

I hardly expect any expression of forgiveness, as that’s not the motivation behind this post. It is simply to show my sincerity in this defeated stance I’ve found myself in.

How about a truce over a tippled umbrella drink?

It’s Wednesdog!

This week’s Wednesdog is brought to you by Sam and Anna. They’re moving into their new home and getting their paws wrapped around their new digs and unfamiliar surroundings.

Regular-reader Jude is still without home Internet and he sends me short emails bemoaning the pain and agony of not being able to read here every day.

One day, his Internet will be back up and he’ll over compensate with a million comments in one day.

You watch.

A Wednesdog worth mentioning: Check out Hulk Dog. You might not like him when he’s angry.

Al Franken kicks Focus on the Family’s ass

From Think Progress:

During this morning’s Senate DOMA hearings, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) destroyed Focus on the Family’s Tom Minnery’s argument that children are better off with opposite-sex parents by demonstrating how Minnery misrepresented an HHS study. The study — which Minnery cited to oppose marriage equality — actually found that children do best in two-parent households, regardless of the parents’ gender.

Toyota Window to the world: your childhood just got downgraded

While your imagination and youthful memories of riding down the road staring out the window just got downgraded again, the kids of tomorrow are going to have a hell of an experience while riding in the car.

Video games. Movies. Now interactive windows with brilliant computer experiences of the future.


What was your out the window fantasy? Mine was riding a bike outside the car, jumping and tricking over hills and bumps. I’ve talked to other people who had the same experience. I also used to love it when it rained, and I would try to find the patterns and guess the path of the droplets running along the window.
