My Work on RationalWiki
One of the articles I spent a lot of work on got a bronze medal. Now a silver medal.
- Evidence for the historical existence of Jesus Christ. To tell the truth, the evidence is severely lacking for someone as big as Jesus, and that is very puzzling. In response, I worked on a separate article, Jesus myth theory.
Articles I worked on that got a bronze medal.
- Ray Comfort. Reviewing several of his books, criticisms of evolution, and all three of the "debates" and several detailed counter arguments.
- Discovery Institute. Follow the money and several of the senior fellows.
- James Randi. Mainly on Sylvia Browne and Randi's stance against homeopathy.
I frequently contribute on RationalWiki:Annotated Bible.
My first and foremost notable work on RationalWiki is being a bit of a book worm. I seem to have been building a reputation as the guy who reviews tons of books. That is fine with me, as a history major I spend a great deal of time in libraries. Yes, I review books containing pseudoscience or creationism and refute the @&%$ out of them. I am also know to be passively active against Ray Comfort and Way of the Master, but I also keep an eye on other creatards (such as Lee Strobel).
You may be wondering how do I do this without shoving a sharpened pencil into my temple. True, half-way through such books and/or programs, I feel as if I am slipping into a drug-induced coma, but it is all the matter of will-power (plus it is kinda sad and says a lot about a person when they are refuted by some chap who is trying dearly to hold onto his sanity.) And you may be wondering why I do this? Several reasons, one being I love doing research. Second, read my intro above. I am a staunch defender of science and reason, and the literature I review is full of anti-matter for reason. I believe unreason and bullshit should be countered everywhere at all times, even coming from people who do not really believe it themselves. The particular books I pick out are books that I often encounter theists use as references to justify their arguments. Often it is either Ray Comfort or Lee Strobel, but there are others out there and they just do not get a free pass.
Book reviews I completed:
- Nothing Created Everything: The Scientific Impossibility of Atheistic Evolution by Ray Comfort. Finally!
- How to Know God Exists: Scientific Proof of God by Ray Comfort. Pretty much done.
- God Doesn't Believe in Atheists: Proof That the Atheist Doesn't Exist by Ray Comfort. Just a few things left out, but overall finished.
- The Delusion of Disbelief by David Aikman. I didn't really want to review this, but went ahead with it. This review is not thorough as the others, but there was not much in this book to review.
- God: The Evidence: The Reconciliation of Faith and Reason in a Postsecular World by Patrick Glynn. Mostly done, very little left to say.
Book reviews near completion:
- The Case for a Creator by Lee Strobel. Thankfully someone already refuted the online video of this. Click here to watch
- The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel Needs work on a few more chapters.
- Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media's Attack on Christianity by S. E. Cupp. Special thanks to Nebuchadnezzar for bringing this project to my attention and for his hard work.
- Evolution: A Fairy Tale for Grownups by Ray Comfort. This is the one that may require the most work. There is a lot of fact checking and quote mining, and checking if the sources are valid or credible, or even just made up. Help is much appreciated.
- Scientific Facts in the Bible: 100 Reasons to Believe the Bible is Supernatural in Origin by Ray Comfort. Almost done :)
- Godless: The Church of Liberalism by Ann Coulter. Half-done, such a bloody piece of work.
- What's So Great About Christianity by Dinesh D'Souza. Couple of chapters left.
Book reviews still need work:
- The Case for Faith by Lee Strobel. Needs work.
- The Case for Easter by Lee Strobel. One-third done. Then again, there are only three freaking chapters.
- Conquer Your Fear, Share Your Faith Leader's Guide: An Evangelism Crash Course by Kirk Cameron. Half-done.
- Defender's Guide for Life's Toughest Questions by Ray Comfort. Not sure why I started this, but nonetheless I will have to get it done.
- Evidence Bible: Irrefutable Evidence for the Thinking Mind by Ray Comfort. I'm not sure how to properly construct this, but this book is a massive shit-storm.
- I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist by Norman Geisler. I just started this one. I have been wanting to do this review for a while. It is a complete collection of all the old stuff that have been refuted a thousand times, and yet it is still selling many copies and many theists use it as a reference.
- Intelligent Design vs. Evolution - Letters to an Atheist by Ray Comfort. I started this one a long time ago, it is difficult to write a review about. It is a straightforward email exchanges with Ray Comfort mostly comments posted on the side.
- The School of Biblical Evangelism by Ray Comfort. Like his book Evolution: A Fairy Tale for Grownups this one is going to take a long time since it has so much stuff in it.
- World Religions in a Nutshell: A Compact Guide to Reaching Those of Other Faiths by Ray Comfort. As soon as I saw this, I knew it would be a gold mine. Started on Atheism, but I will cover Ray's material on the rest.
- Hitler, God, and the Bible by Ray Comfort. Started reading this book, the first half is about Hitler's rise to power, but the later half is when Comfort starts doing what he usually does. Therefore, a lot of the review will be on the later half.
- Creation: Remarkable Evidence of God's Design by Grant Jeffrey - another non-scientist pastor thinking he can overthrow science overall and prove Genesis.
- The Lie: Evolution by Ken Ham. This book can be read online for free. Anyone who wishes to read it and add to this article, please feel free to do so.
Book reviews in mind for the future:
- From Darwin to Hitler by Richard Weikart. Perhaps thee Darwin = Hitler book, at least that I know of. This book has influenced many, including Ann Coulter, and has been a reference for many creationist propaganda films, such as Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed and Darwin's Deadly Legacy.
- The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible by Robert J. Hutchinson. Seems like it will be a breeze.
- Life After Death: The Evidence by Dinesh D'Souza. I have read two books recently that point out all the big flaws in this pile of garbage.
- The Devils Delusion: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions by David Berlinski, who is a senior member of the Discovery Institute.
- The Truth Behind the New Atheism: Responding to the Emerging Challenges to God and Christianity by David Marshal.
Apart from books, I also review films. Here are films I started and worked on:
- Darwin's Deadly Legacy - a creationist propaganda film aiming to connect Darwin to Hitler.
- 180, the Movie - Ray Comfort made a movie to turn pro-choice people into staunch anti-abortionists. Constantly invoking Godwin's Law to convince people abortion is bad. The film is poorly constructed and fails miserably at history.
- The Trouble with Atheism
Here are films I helped expand:
- What the Bleep Do We Know? - a film determined to connect quantum mechanics with spirituality. Spoiler: it failed. It was full of comments from people who were either unqualified or known to spread misinformation.
Future films I may plan to work on. There is no guarantee I will review them, but we will see. I am open to recommendations, but feel free to watch the films I list below:
- Darwin: The Voyage that Shook the World
- The Privileged Planet
Apart from reviewing whole films, I also review episodes; particularly Way of the Master. If you want to see my reviews and my work on Ray Comfort, search "Ray Comfort" on IronChariots.org (or click here), then scroll down to the bottom and you will see a list of episodes produced by Way of the Master. The only ones I did not do were 1) the Fire Fighter, 2) Evolution, 3) Satanic Influence, and 4) Atheism. Which means, I created and finished a total of twenty-three WOTM reviews so far. Yes, I have taken the time to refuted each of them myself. It was a lot of hard work, and there is still a lot left to go. So dear reader, if possible, please feel free to review other episodes of Way of the Master and begin a critique on IronChariots - trust me it is easier than you may think. You can use the other episodes as helping guides on how to structure the review.
Here is a list of programs I reviewed,
- Kent Hovind's Creation Seminar: The Age of The Earth
- Kent Hovind's Creation Seminar: The Garden of Eden
- Kent Hovind's Creation Seminar: Dinosaurs and the Bible
- Kent Hovind's Creation Seminar: Lies in the Textbooks
- Kent Hovind's Creation Seminar: The Dangers of Evolution
- Kent Hovind's Creation Seminar: The Hovind Theory
Here is a list of some other programs I plan to work on RW,
- Kent Hovind's Creation Seminar: Questions and Answers
I hope you enjoy my work and find it very helpful. Also, if you have some time, some help with the above reviews (especially Way of the Master on IronChariots.org) would be much appreciated.
|Since many many many people mistaken me for Jesus Chrrist, I decided I can no longer pretend that I am just a common man and not something more. I AM JESUS. You heard me. I'm back. The sun is bright and the power's bitchin'.
I like this era. I'll tell ya, biblical times sucked balls. Seriously. Since time has changed and my biblical teachings are far out-dated, I decided to come up with a new set of rules. Since George Carlin made a very good point (we miss you mate!), my rules will not be Ten. It will be Eleven. Why Eleven? Because I like to go one step beyond. I will also include a list of abominations. Forget the old abominations, I have a new list.
Each Commandment will have a footnote to clarify the meaning so people will not be confused about interpretation (I don't want history to repeat itself). So here are my New Commandments (or guidelines):
1. HAVE A PARTY.
2. I do not care about your sexual orientation, just be what you are. And for Christ's sakes: SPREAD THE LOVE!
3. If someone hates you, or harms you or strikes you, do not feel bad about not loving them in return. In fact, you should not like them. You should report them and/or seek justice.
4. Take a day off? What!? Life is short, live it! Remember Commandment #1.
5. Scratch what I said about HONOR thy father and mother.
6. When thou enter this world, do everything in thy power to make it better than it was when thy entereth. Improve the world we all share. Do not damage the environment. Protect it and do not be careless with treating it. Always seek sustainable ways of living.
7. Thou shall constantly seek knowledge and truth. Do not take anything on faith. Encourage others to learn more.
8. All Religion is bogus.
9. Information is free.
10. Lead a healthy and fit lifestyle and encourage others to do the same.
11. (Probably the most important of all).... REAL VAMPIRES DO NOT SPARKLE.
*Failure to meet any of these Commandments will get their ass kicked by my father (for you ignorant people out there, Jesus' dad is Chuck Norris).*
|List of Abominations|
|Of course, I once before made of list of abominations, but that was then and this is now. Scratch all previous abominations, do not bother with them (shellfish is actually pretty tasty, mmmmm), and focus on the new list. Here is my new list of abominations.
|If there ever is an end-of-the-world, I truly wish it is the zombie apocalypse. Forget the robot take-over; nuclear holocaust; alien invasion; global warming; etc. Nope, I look forward for the zombie apocalypse. Recently, the Center for Disease Control published an article warning people to prepare for the zombie apocalypse (I know it's bogus, but it is a start) The article itself was useful, but it is very basic. So, I decided to add my two cents on how to survive Z-Day. Many people have a large list of rules or guidelines they should follow to survive Z-Day. Some of them are very important, others are just wasteful, the rest they saw on Zombieland. Therefore I will name the top four that should be on everyone's list. If you do not have it, you will likely not last long.
1. Avoid zombies at all costs.
2. Stay alive and adapt to your environment.
3. Know how to properly kill zombies.
4. Beware of other humans.
Those are the main guidelines everyone should follow. Your style of survival is up to you, so choose wisely. Whether it is (to remain stationary in a gun store or try to remain on the move) be sure to stay safe and be prepared for any scenario. Here are some of my personal tips,
