Thoughtful and intelligent interview

Sid Schwab of Cutting Through The Crap has posted a video of an excellent interview with Barack Obama.

Sarah Mania! Sarah Palin's Greatest Hits

It's almost like watching The Office episode where Ricky Gervais does his dance routine, but then without the laughter ...

We all knew "the good book" was dangerous

And here's proof, quoting the Bible can get you in jail. It really should come with those warning stickers that say it contains violence, hate speach and sex.

"As far as I know, Pinkney's the first preacher in the history of America to get locked up for quoting the Bible," Davis says. "Deuteronomy is a great chapter—especially that part about killing all the men, women and children from every city."

Why probably no god?

You could probably(!) guess, it's because of the automatic protection religion gets in our society.

See:

A valid point is raised in the comments, a definite christian message should not be allowed as well so as not to offend muslims or other religious sects (and vice verso)

What's so good about Belgium

Well this article (in dutch) has the following table:

(translated)
 Further ease of abortionEuthanasia
for minors
Adoption for gays and lesbians
unacceptable21,4%24,1%26,3%
undecided21,2%18,5%13,9%
acceptable57,4%57,5%59,8%

The full analysis (PDF) can be downloaded at the end of the article, it is a survey done last year on about 1000 people in Belgium.

Okay, it could be better but then it can always be better.  Clearly a majority of Belgians are quite progressive.
This is why I'm not too worried about any religious education that my daughter might be getting when she'll be at a catholic school, chances are most of her teachers won't even believe in a god ...

Atheists doing something!

Check this out, who ever said that atheists can't get organized ...
A target of £5,500 reached and then some (it's at £35,000!!! at the moment) in just one day (correction, a few hours).
And Richard Dawkins is chipping in too, matching that first £5,500

The times they are a changing:

And if you want there's a Facebook group for this action:
