Background Probability

The Agnostic Popular Front has moved to its new home at Skeptic Ink, and will henceforth be known as Background Probability. Despite the relocation and rebranding, we will continue to spew the same low-fidelity high-quality bullshit that you've come to expect.

That Infamous Engine of Grief (Part I)

Earlier I alluded to my hometown's proud tradition of prominently displaying a certain engine of grief as a sacred homage to human sacrifice - wherever and whenever possible, regardless of state law. Here for once we have a good news story of a cross restored to its proper place on church property, rather than being held in trust by the taxpayers for the unconstitutional propagation of the Christian religion. Everyone wins!

The monument formerly situated on the state fairgrounds now resides on the narrow DMZ between Quail Springs Baptist and Quail Springs Church of Christ. Your intrepid reporter has confirmed that it remains there to this day, braving no less than a massive church picnic in order to do so.
