Einstein once asked, "Does Evil Exist?": A short video reveals his answer.

A Stunning Global Warming Fraud Exposed: "A set of data long used in support of the anthropogenic global warming claim has turned out to be an out and out fraud."

Italian Scientist Reproduces Shroud of Turin: "An Italian scientist says he has reproduced the Shroud of Turin, a feat that he says proves definitively that the linen some Christians revere as Jesus Christ's burial cloth is a medieval fake."

Rabbi Jon Hausman on the Yale-Mohammed Cartoon Controversy: "Honestly, I would not send my child to any school where there is such uniformity and conformity of thought and attitude...It is clear that the university suffers from the malaise of relativist truth and the multicultural ethic...In the final analysis, I believe that the university is lost."

The Simpsons Mock The Secret: "On last night's episode of
The Simpsons, Bart got Mrs. Krabappel fired from Springfield Elementary by spiking her coffee. His guilt eventually got the better of him, but instead of confessing immediately, he went to the bookstore and bought his ex-teacher a copy of The Answer instead ('available wherever dubious quasi-scientific self-help books are sold'). Edna opened a muffin shop as a result of The Answer, which she hated.

Richard Dawkins Dodges Debate, Refuses to Defend Evolution: "Dawkins, the world’s leading public spokesman for Darwinian evolution and an advocate of the “new atheism,” has refused to debate Dr. Stephen C.

Is Vox Day a Miserable, Pretentious Jerk? Nah, that's impossible!.."I came here with the genuine wish to learn why people believe what they believe and find myself so terribly disappointed. Here is a blogger that instead of explaining himself prefers to sling insults at others. I do not understand his letters to the comprehensible Luke and so am branded unintelligent. I am not unintelligent...He insults the idle reader who is now adding another name to the list of hateful Christians, increasing the size of the wedge between me and faith." Gosh, I have no idea what this guy is talking about!

I've also updated the following essays...

The Italian group think that they may have been able to recreate the Shroud of Turin. Maybe they have? But, I'd love for them to try and recreate the coffee stained image of the Virgin Mary I personally have. A few photos of the image can be found here on Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/7690119@N03/sets/72157617453203072/detail/
