You know it’s a cult. You

If you’re new here, you may have missed the fact that I am a T.V. nerd. I love the good quality television coming out of my screen these days: Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Mr. Robot, etc. I’m always looking for new shows, so when one of my favourite podcasts recommended Westworld, I hopped on that train

10 Questions For Ken Ham

Ken Ham Ark Questions

Edit: I realize they were on the boat for a year. My bad. My biblically illiterate bad. Alright, Hammy. I’ve sat by listening to your horseshit long enough.

How Do You Talk To An Atheist?

What Dennis hopes for.

It wouldn’t be a day in my life if I was not exposed to some lobotomy patient’s weak-ass straw man about what atheists are all about. It’s the same old shit, day in and day out and, honestly, it gets older than Keith Richards cryogenically frozen long enough to listen to his own music on

Ask Mommy: How Do I Deal With Religious Parental Guilt Trips?

There's a reason they call it Nice.

When I was fifteen, I traveled through Southeast Asia and the South Pacific with my parents. We spent two weeks on the Island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands.
