The Death of a Freak: Euthanasia for Belgium’s Botched Sex-Change ‘Monster’

What depths of self-hatred could lead someone to this? Nathan, born Nancy, Verhelst, 44, was given legal euthanasia, most likely by lethal injection, on the grounds of “unbearable psychological suffering” on Monday afternoon. . . . “I was the girl that nobody wanted,” Mr Verhelst told Het Laatste Nieuws newspaper in the hours before her […]

The Non-Existent Moral Code of Atheism

If there is no God, there is only Science and, as everyone who has studied the “climate change” phenomenon is aware, Science involves a self-selecting cabal of credentialed insiders empowered to dismiss criticism from anyone who does not concur in the sacred consensus. So child molestation is harmless — the Science is settled! Richard Dawkins, […]

Divorced Woman Becomes Victim of Patriarchal Oppression and Biology …

. . . but, yeah, mainly it’s the biology: [A] 38-year-old woman . . . is a client of Ronald G. Lieberman, a family law attorney in Haddonfield, N.J.

An American Crisis: Fat Lesbians

Why are lesbians fat? Or, why are fat women lesbians? Is correlation causation? This profound scientific mystery demands an answer, and you can’t have science without a federal research grant: The federal government has spent $2.2 million studying why three quarters of lesbians are obese despite sequestration-mandated budget cuts that critics warned could “delay progress […]

Bill Nye the Science Guy: Harasser?

In the wake of the atheist sex scandal we reported Tuesday, someone in the “skeptic” community (as these soi-dissant rationalists refer to themselves) created a Tumblr blog called “More Will Be Named” that expanded the list of accused harassers beyond Skeptical Inquirer deputy editor Ben Radford.

Ooh! Another Atheist Sex Scandal?

Karen Stoltznow and Ben Radford at a December 2012 conference. You may recall that in 2011 Rebecca Watson — the total smokin’ hotness of atheist chickdom – celebrated her victimhood after some guy tried to hit on her at an atheist conference. The silliness of it all prompted Vox Day to comment on the misery of […]

This Could Explain a Lot of Things

Wilkinson, a physician in residence at the Yale University department of Psychiatry, writes in the Wall Street Journal: “There is a significant and consistent relationship between marijuana use and the development of schizophrenia and related disorders.” You can read the whole thing — that is, you could read the whole thing, if […]

Thursday Evening Silliness

Obsessed? Who, Me?

Honestly, you start talking about this stuff, and readers in the comments call your attention to other related stuff, and it’s really pretty fascinating. But next thing you know you’re down the Rabbit Hole, lost in Wonderland. So I promise that after this post, I’m going to write something about NSA snooping or the IRS […]

She Blinded Me With Pseudo-Science

“Pretty Baby has been banned outright in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Saskatchewan.
