Does homeschooling reduce childhood obesity? Yes, and the key meal is lunch. Plus four more stories.
Or is there some misunderstanding? And why now, for crying out loud, when even atheists are checking out at various points?
Okay, due to technical hassles, we missed the Fri nite frite last week, but whaddayaknow, if it isn’t Halloween. We can’t do a spook frite because the Darwinian atheists beat us to it (at least one of them believes in them, and he isn’t the only one either). Believing in them ruddy spoils the fun! […]
Recently I came across a fascinating biography of Lord Kelvin over on the creationist Website, crev.info. That article gave me the idea for an interesting hypothetical question, which I’d like to put to evolutionary biologists and other defenders of Darwinism. If Professors Jerry Coyne, Larry Moran or P.

To say that consciousness evolved from matter is like saying Newton’s theory of gravity evolved from apples. Even if for the sake of argument one concedes that natural selection might account for the development of a material […]
FTE: Contrary to Judge Jones’ ruling that Pandas was originally intended to advocate creationism, FTE in fact agreed with previous court rulings against teaching actual creationism in public schools.
The best organized stew in the history of the planet.
New research makes one wonder. It is 80% of the universe’s matter, but we can’t find any?
I always love a good survey, and the latest Yougov survey of the religious beliefs of Americans does not disappoint. The survey of 996 adults, conducted on 17-18 October 2013, contains quite a few interesting revelations about atheism and religious belief in America.
