A recent episode of science program "Cosmos" featured criticism of Young Earth Creationism by its host, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
In the "A Sky Full of Ghosts" episode, Tyson made arguments against the belief that the Earth and the universe are only several thousand years old. Tyson pointed to the Crab Nebula, an outer space entity found 6,500 light years away from earth, as proof that Young Earth Creationism was wrong.

David Bonney of German company "ATHEIST Shoes" announced on Tuesday that he would be discontinuing his popular line of God-denying footwear.
"I will not be continuing with Atheist Shoes, because I have been touched by the most beautiful experience, one that has forced me to question everything I was so certain of before," David said in a statement.

Some might call it revelation, but it was not a thing of the brain, but of my entire being… and it feels divine." more >>

"The single biggest frustration I've had in this job is the perception that somehow there is religious persecution inside the United States Air Force," the general told lawmakers. "It is not true."
If that's true, perhaps Gen. Welsh could explain why a Bible was removed from a POW/MIA Missing Man Table at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida. The removal of the Good Book was first reported by the Gannett-owned newspaper Florida Today. more >>
