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.

Friday Fishbait - Darwin (Original)

My original Darwin fish sticker (not pictured) has since evolved into an FSM but the original is still the most potent and on-point.

Why Darwin of all the freethinkers who might serve as a counterpoint to Jesus?

Probably one reason is that Darwin has allegedly made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist. More importantly, though, other great men of scientific progress (e.g. Galileo, Einstein) are no longer enduring a sustained attack upon their breakthroughs by those who sport the original (ΙΧΘΥΣ) fish. The opponents of Christian Nationalists are more reactive than progressive, striving to hold the line (e.g. on science curricula and textbooks) rather than push the envelope.
