More Proof Fundamentalists Can’t Read

As if it was needed, here’s a little more proof that the overly-religious are more prone to idiocy than other demographics. I don’t think it’s news to anyone that Wall Street is a mess right now; indeed, the nation and world are keeping a close eye on what is going on with the world’s economies. Well, one […]

Gain 34 lbs of Muscle in 28 Days – How? Double Leg Amputation?

In May 2007, I began experimenting with a fitness program advocated by Tim Ferris, a program with which he claims to have “gained 34 lbs. of muscle, while losing 3 lbs. of fat, in 28 days” while working out only 1 hour per week. If you’re thinking, that has to be bullshit, you are correct. […]

5 Reasons to Build a Bunker

Since I assume most of the War on Bullshit readers (Warriors on Bullshit?) are at least fairly literate, I’m going to further assume you, like me, have always thought conservatives with bunkers are fucking nuts. Hey, it’s an easy assumption to make. They wear tin foil hats, have 300 guns, and probably engage in incest. […]

Kavan’s Top 5 Ways to Save Energy – The Big Picture

I’ve got good news and bad news. Bad news first: switching from incancesdents to CFLs is not going to halt climate change. Although I agree that they help and encourage people to try them, CFLs, biodiesel, weatherstripping and similar tactics only distract from the underlying causes of inefficiency. The good news is, sound strategies for […]

Google announces $10 million in funding for YOU, if you know how to help enough people

It’s called Project 10 to the 100, and it’s like an open X-Prize for any idea that can help lots and lots of people. A few posts ago, I identified what may be the root cause of our society’s ubiquitous problems. Reader jonathan quite rightly commented: “Flawless description of a problem…but no solution?” Now, with […]

Three Reasons Santa is More Plausible than God

At the risk of starting a theme for this week’s war, I’m going to take a slightly different approach from Kavan on atheism. It’s no secret that I think belief in God is among the top ten biggest signs you might be retarded. Isn’t it strange, though, that’s nobody questions people’s disbelief in Santa? Any […]

Christians are Atheists – Taking on Faith One God at a Time

Recently, Political comedian and talk show host Bill Maher did the Daily Show to promote his new docu-comedy “Religulous.” A few days later, I read an interesting post on the difficulties of labeling someone an atheist. The basic difficulty is that some people use atheist to mean “does not believe in God” (sometimes called agnosticism) […]

Myth Busted: Violence Can Solve Problems

Have you ever found yourself in a waiting room, and you spot the inevitable rack of brochures full of bullshit? Well, I think I’ve tracked down the biggest gem of them all: Mad Attitude?! Violence Gets You Nowhere! This brochure is based entirely on the old adage that violence doesn’t solve anything. While this sounds […]
