Today's reading

Ted Rall illustrates metaphysical differences between Obama and Clinton.

Jesus and Mo discuss Islamic human rights.

I think Scott Meyer and I share a few of the same critics.

Jen Sorensen puts a new spin on Two Americas.

Tim Kreider offers a novel economic stimulus package.

Don Asmussen reveals some of the more obscure effects of the looming economic depression.

The Apostate admires iconoclastic rule-breakers. Quelle suprise.

The Rude Pundit descends into horse-race campaign reporting. I think he's mistaken and misguided.

Shalini Sehkar is still MIA.

James eviscerates theistard Edward T. Oakes anti-atheist bullshit and Oakes' inability to read or comprehend simple declarative sentences.

I'll be posting later on Geoff Arnold's inquiry into the ethics of belief and persuasion, responding to Mark Rowland's article.

Mike the Mad Biologist connects health care and wages. I may write on this topic myself, as time permits.


  1. I want to resurrect my blog but sadly, the shit that I'm in makes it impossible.

    I miss my blog and the word 'theistard' very much.


  2. If there's anything I can do, any way I can help, let me know.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
