Links for March 2

Just a few somewhat random links:

Take-down of William Lane Craig's position on morality.   (WLC doesn't participate and why should he? He phones in the same tired "answers" in every debate anyway)

William Lane Craig is organizing a Roots of Christian Civilization Cruise.   Israel is not on the tour.  Really.

Indiana drunk arrested after calling 911 (repeatedly) for a cheeseburger.  Funny but pathetic.

Procrastination is not laziness.  It's neurosis.  So the blog author will get started working on it... on Monday.  Sheesh. Hey, whether you're a loser because you're lazy because you're neurotic, you're still a loser!

National Geographic looks at the decimation of the African elephant due to poaching for Chinese purchase.  They interview a Buddhist art dealer who tells himself that the elephant died to donate its tusk to statues honoring Buddha, and that they are happy in the afterlife because of this.  (PBS page here)  Buy the DVD here.

A new book says the early Christians were not persecuted, at least to the extent they claim to have been.  Early Christians were liars?  Say it ain't so!

Things are not looking good for private corporations suing to deny birth control to employees.

Ignorant Christian thinks he has "unanswerable" (scientific) questions for atheists.  And they call us arrogant!

David Barton got his quotation about 19th Century schools being defended by gun-toting students FROM A LOUIS LAMOUR NOVEL!!!!  Argh!  What a tool.

I've always wanted to procrastinate, but somehow I just never got around to it.
