Buster Benson attempts to create a taxonomy of cognitive biases. The best part is the gorgeous graphic made by John Manoogian ⅠⅠⅠ. (Also check out the map made by Alexey Turchin at LessWrong.)
 ”Islam is Evil: Atheists and Christians Find Common Ground”(Video: 11:33)
A wickedly clever video aimed at Christians. I recommend you watch it all the way through – if you’re really busy, okay, just watch it as far as the reveal that comes just after 6:44. Then share with every Christian you know who trash talks the barbarism in the Quran.

A couple years ago, I made a detailed case for why secularists, humanists, atheists, and freethinkers should support reforming Canada’s electoral system to a proportional representation system, and was shocked at how uninformed people were about the issue, and how so many claimed that it probably couldn’t be done for this or that reason. Well now electoral reform is really happening, so of course the denialism has begun in earnest – the Fraser Institute in particular has tried to discredit the idea of proportional representation as “bad for the economy”. Behind the Numbers lives up to its name, fact-checking that claim and backing it up with rigorous sourcing, and along the way they debunk other myths.
