Carnival of the Godless #147

Welcome to the latest issue of Carnival of the Godless!  And if you're new to Infallible Failure, thanks for stopping by!  We have a variety of excellent posts for this issue, so let's get right down to business.

Steve Snyder at SocraticGadfly presents Praying Glenn Beck doesn't know his Bible or Jesus, proving that Glenn Beck is a hypocrite, using one of my favorite bible verses (no, not the one with the bears, although I like that one too :-).

Archvillian at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good presents No. YOU Move! about the recent terrorist attack on the construction equipment being used to build a mosque being built in Tennessee, and Sound and Fury, about Bryan Fischer, a man would prefer we ignore the Constitution, and have our government refuse to permit mosques to be built.

Raithie, the Teenage Atheist, presents I'll make my own meaning, thanks, rejecting the theist's offer of apre-packaged meaning of life (via the god of their choice), preferring "the inter-connections of reality; your beliefs, perceptions, environment and those people that you meet and depend on."  Raithie also submitted What is God?, a look at the trouble with arguing over a word without a clear definition.  (This one also has quite an interesting discussion in the comment section, if you care for that sort of thing as I do.)

Romeo Vitelli at Providentia presents a really interesting history of comets being seen as signs of impeding doom and gloom, in his post titled Comet Crazy.

Todd from Edge of Error presents his article: Priest and Rabbi can't agree on how to disagree with Hawking, showing that even when the religious try to argue against us godless folk, they can't even keep their stories straight.

The Barefoot Bum from The Barefoot Bum writes Why the stupid?, about the lack of "sophisticated" theological arguments, even among respected academics, and what the debate between atheists and theists is really about.  He also presents Agnosticism, looking at the different varieties of agnosticism, and the philosophical implications thereof.

Arizona Atheist from ARIZONA ATHEIST presents his long and detailed review of The Evidence Bible by Ray Comfort, called Taking The Way of the Morons (master) to Task: The Evidence Bible Demolished.

That concludes this edition of the Carnival of the Godless.  Thanks for reading, and a special thanks to all who submitted articles!  Submit your blog article to the next edition of Carnival of the Godless using our carnival submission form.
