Charlottesville Unite the Right White Supremacy March

In a scene that looked like it was straight out of the Civil Rights era, a large group of Caucasian males marched in Charlottesville, Virginia holding tiki torches. They walked to the University of Virginia and were met with opposition. All hell eventually broke out with both sides throwing fists, saliva and anything else they can get their hands on.

The march was billed as a "Unite the Right march" and was begun with the intention to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee who led the Confederate army during the Civil War.

 Social media has been exploding with many commentaries. The media has been airing the story all day and has had passionate commentators from both sides speaking on the situation. Some blame Trump and his speeches for empowering the so-called "Alt-Right" who are labeled as White Supremacists. Others say that this is nothing new and has happened for decades.

 As the day went on and Virginia's authorities tried to keep law and order, a 20 year old Caucasian man plowed his car onto a crowd near the downtown mall injuring dozens and killing a 32 year old female marcher. James Alex Fields, Jr. of Maumee, Ohio was later arrested and is facing charges. To add to the horror of the day, a helicopter carrying two State Police officers monitoring the protests crashed killing two officers.

I will continue to update this post as I learn more. Hopefully, everyone will calm down and will resort to discussing how to remedy the existence of White Supremacy groups in America.

Study: Atheists Are Serial Killers

Those of us who deal with alleged online atheists or those who call themselves the "new atheists" have probably noticed that these people can be insane. They love to harass, troll, slander and even dox (post private information of others). Because of this, atheists have gotten a very bad reputation. No one takes them seriously.  Many others see them as immoral and psychopathic. A new study seems to show that the sentiments against atheists are indeed universal.

The study, "Global evidence of extreme intuitive moral prejudice against atheists," published in the journal Nature Human Behavior found that many find religion to still be a staple in morality while finding atheists to be immoral and even serial killers. Three thousand people from 13 different countries participated in the study.  The study was conducted via a survey by associate professor Will M. Gervais
