Link roundup for 18 November 2007

There have been a couple more exchanges in the life-after-death discussion here.

There are a lot of us around.

"Braaaiiinns!!"

Considering how frequently I've been harassed over the years by Christian proselytizers, why couldn't I ever have been targeted by this bunch? (Yes, they're real.)

See creationism cartoons at Middle-Aged Vampiress Atheist and The Crossed Pond.

Check out the unusual street art of Mark Jenkins.

Pastafarianism has a serious point to make.

Teenage sex helps prevent delinquency.

Dang. I like Southwest Airlines, and now they've gone and done this. But it looks like the victim will get the last laugh, or at least some cash.

See spectacular photos of the recent storm in Crimea, here and here.

The Barna Group surveys atheism in the US. Of special interest is their breakdown of our country's adult population by religion: 58 million "active-faith Christians", 20 million atheists/agnostics -- and in between, 130 million people "who describe themselves as Christians, but who are Christian in name only".

A surfer is drawing attention in the world of theoretical physics.

Now that the evil Israeli occupation is gone, Gaza luxuriates in the rule of Hamas.

Richard Spencer debunks the myth of American decline.

Here's another example of Muslim cultural influence in Britain.

Is your hard drive made in China?

Public opinion is now turning strongly against free trade, and the seemingly endless quality problems with Chinese imports are part of the reason.

The elites of western Europe are carrying out a grand design to destroy national sovereignty and democracy on that continent. This isn't some crackpot conspiracy theory, it's real -- and it's not even particularly secret.

Religious bigotry is a force to be reckoned with in child-custody disputes.

Is the Southern Baptist Convention following in the footsteps of the Catholic Church?

These officials are standing firm against driver's licenses for illegal aliens -- and no one's calling them racists. (Found via Reverse Vampyr.)

This US veteran didn't stand idly by when he saw the American flag being insulted.

Islamic justice: We all remember the case of the Pakistani woman who was sentenced to death for being raped, but in Saudi Arabia, apparently, rape victims can get off with a mere jail sentence and flogging. Those damn bleeding-heart-liberal judges!

Southwest Airlines... Any outfit has the potential to offend someone, so that rule was bound to bite 'em in the collective, "non-offensively" covered derriere. The outfit in question looked nice and covered appropriately for the setting. Good for Ebbert, that such an opportunity came from this mess.

I'm just glad she wasn't on Saudi Arabian Airlines. The flogging would probably still be going on to this day.

Hey, thanks for linking to my post on Atheist Haven. Not many people commented and I think this should be brought to the fore of our attention. It really is heinous on the part of the courts.

Hey, I like that idea of posting links. I went to almost every one of them. Hey, I seen my son's link to a post he did on Atheist Haven. (He's Ungodly Cynic, Larro)Cool.
The link to the veteran with the flag was good.
I really liked the video of the atheist blogs.

Larro -- it's a great post, especially with all the info on specific cases. Something we need to be reminded of, especially as Christians like to claim that they're the ones who are being oppressed by atheism these days.

Tina -- thanks. There's so much good stuff out there that I have to do one of these every few days just to keep up.

I was impressed by the veteran in Nevada too. The guys who pulled that flag stunt obviously didn't expect that an American would confront them that way.
