Seems everything I post about is based on comments or messages in my email. I’m sharing this latest message as a blog post on the expectation that someone who understands physics better than I do will either correct my ignorance of the subject or they’ll correct the sender of this message. Because I don’t know what he’s talking about, and I don’t think he does either. I copied his email below in italics: ________ Everything that humanity had been taught… Read more

Yesterday I blogged about the type of criticism I most often read from believers commenting on my videos. I don’t just get complaints of course. There is another type of comment that I’ve often gotten. My new favorite example of that was in my inbox this morning and is copied below. I’m sure you get plenty of letters thanking you for what you do, and I’m sure you get just as many (if not more) letters that are angry with… Read more

Every day it seems I hear from some anonymous internet nobody who must never have spoken to an atheist before, because it’s always the same handful of fallacies. Today I got a massive block of text, one giant whole page paragraph of the same old nonsense; too much I think for a typical troll to waste time on. Normally a whole page of text would be dismissed as “tldr”, [too long, didn’t read] but I decided to use this guy… Read more

I got an email from a Christian creationist having a crisis in faith, at least with regard to the creationist part of his beliefs. He said he wants to be honest and to have a “rational faith”, though he admits the irony in that phrase. He saw my video series disproving the Biblical flood and said that he “found it compelling, but incredibly jarring and difficult to absorb”. He wants to understand the evidence and be intellectually honest about it…. Read more

Once again, my wife and I testified before the Texas State Board of Education in Austin; this time regarding the content of our Social Studies textbooks. To their credit, the board is now considering removing some things that we told them four years ago should not have been included in the first place. They want to promote American exceptionalism, which means they don’t want to teach any of the mistakes our country has made. They don’t want students to know that… Read more

Should Texas students be told that Moses and Judeo-Christian Biblical Law influenced the founding of our laws? According to the Texas Freedom Network, the Texas School Board will be hearing testimony on this on Tuesday, June 12th, and some other culture war questions that politicize history such as: Was the Civil War about State’s Rights? Was McCarthyism justified? Is the separation of Church and State a key constitutional principle? As a Thomas B. Fordham Institute recent review of Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills… Read more

  “Hello! You’ve reached And I’m S. J. Thomason, and today I’m gonna present to you eleven questions that atheists cannot answer. The first question: How do you explain why the early Christian martyrs preached for decades, saying they saw the risen Christ?” Shall we start with Paul? As I understand it, he seems to have seen a flash of light and heard voices that his friends around him couldn’t hear. Some scholars think that he had a stroke,… Read more

When trying to reason with Biblical literalists, they’ll say their Bible is historically accurate even though the best they can show is that only some of the people and places mentioned in those fables were real; which of course they would be since fictional stories are usually set in real places and often mention famous people of that time. But there is absolutely no historical or archaeological evidence that the stories are true, and Bible scholars often admit that they’re… Read more

Some religious propagandists like to pretend that they are just and good and righteous and that anyone who believes differently is somehow inherently evil, especially if we don’t have any faith-based beliefs at all. As if none of us have ever done anything good, which of course means they have to ignore all the good that so many of us actually do, and instead exaggerate the bad as much as possible, even if they have to lie to do that…. Read more

YouTube’s changes in policy caused a few of my older videos to be demonetized as “not suitable for all advertisers”. Among them, this video below correcting the pervasive lies that Darwin was a racist eugenicist and that Hitler was an atheist Darwinist. Of course the reverse is true, but believers don’t want to know that, and I’m being commercially penalized for it. I requested a review. The response I got, and have gotten a few times now, is that even… Read more
