It would be cool if someone could do this DarkMatter2525 animation but with a Muslim or a Hindu, for example, instead of a Christian. They all fit the pattern.
Are they serious? According to the Brunei Times, the Brunei legal system states that it is “an offence to propagate religions other than Islam to a Muslim or atheist”. And this bit:
Additionally, it is a crime to expose the child to any ceremony, act of worship or religious activity of any religion beside Islam, or to participate in any activity held for the benefit of other religions.
Go read the rest at the Brunei Times!
Far-right Hindu organisation forces Penguin India to recall the book “The Hindus” from India.

Those laws to “protect” religious feelings are a monstrosity.
Channel 4 in censuring farce!

The correct moral thing to do was obvious. So why did the LSE take so long to admit that they may have been wrong? Summary by Jerry Coyne available here:
- Secularism wins again: LSE apologizes (sort of) to students forced to cover up their Jesus and Mo shirts
Not good enough.
Here’s one of my previous blogs on the LSE:
- There’s something not right at the London School of Economics Student Union
Anyway, I subscribed to “Jesus and Mo” quite a while ago as its light-hearted humour are very insightful. Go meet them! Here’s one that’s quite apt:
Following on from the Dawkins conversation with Boghossian, here’s the audience Q&A.
Excellent conversation between Dawkins and Boghossian. Covers subjects such as delusions, drugs, the cowardly LSE, Doctor Who and Christopher Hitchens. Good stuff.
I’ve come across quite a few presentation by Richard Carrier over the last couple or so years so I was quite interested in this interview by Scott Burdick. Again, another sharp-as-a-laser performance by Carrier. Worth it if you’re interested in reason, and also if you’re interested in some of Carrier’s thoughts on very early Christian documentation. In Burdick’s own words:
Here’s a one and-a-half hour interview I conducted with noted historian Richard Carrier that explores the latest scholarship regarding the evidence of who, when, and where the Gospels were written as well as the historicity of Jesus. We also discussed Dr. Carrier’s views on God in general, as well as his recent clash with historian Dr. Bart Ehrman.
