Two marriage proposals at the Fort Bragg atheist festival

Just before the camera started rolling, I started the set up: "The best part of any YouTube debate is always a Q & A session. It's a bit more intimate, and honest discussion starts happening. So let's get a mix-mic out there, for some Q & A" /www.youtube.com/embed/DJHajd68AMQ? Congratulations to the Riddlehoovers! That's enough Q & A. Dave Silverman then joined me on stage and we shared 'a moment'. A second marriage proposal almost happened! This footage comes from the … [Read more...]

I was trolled with Silverman, Dawkins, PZ Myers, thunderf00t

The Religious Antagonist was causing quite a stir at the AA Convention in Washington D.C. Everyone was talking about the guy who Richard Dawkins told to 'fuck off'. Nobody warned me, but I think I handled myself alright. www.youtube.com/embed/8H25ADf8I3I?rel=0 He cut out one thing from our conversation. I'm paraphrasing: Religious Antagonist: "Do atheists have bigger holes than foxes?" Justin Griffith: "Yes, because they tend to dig a little deeper if you know what I … [Read more...]

Sideburns should go back to 1860′s regulations

I'm just sayin'... I'm on leave. Lots of soldiers do embarrassing little cosmetic experiments when we can... because we can.  Mohawks, beards, etc. Our wives all roll their eyes, but, "YOU JUST DON'T GET IT!" works every time. (: Shaving them off tonight. My hair grows fast; that's only a week or so of intentional mutton chop growth. Bye bye identity crutches! I used to look like this before I joined the military: Identity Crutches RBB performer and atheist anti-folk … [Read more...]

The parachute team is *not* atheist and they are forced to perform

Justice has prevailed with one of the last big-ticket "equal levels of support" to secure. The prestigious Golden Knights are working on a way to do a demonstration jump at our event, just as they had at the Christian event - including at least one atheist. There obviously was a lot of back and forth over the past year to secure this. 2 other teams turned us down, for frivolous and or very 'convenient' reasons. We appreciate the GK commanders who came through for us, and we understand that … [Read more...]

“The military needs god’s protection not some wacko like you”

I am the recipient of comments. Sometimes I'll get a rapid-fire volley from a single person, too impulsive to resist the warm embrace of the 'submit' button. Their brains are mid-explosion, possibly their underpants too. Like this: This person says that I need to get out of the military and America. Then he went on for 10 minutes submitting five separate comments on the same post. Sick of wackos says: March 17, 2012 at 4:49 pm JUSTIN GRITTITH…GET OUT OF THE MILITARY AND … [Read more...]

“Nice chest hair, asshole.” This one’s for you, reddit.

Reddit's atheist community has been extremely kind to the Rock Beyond Belief festival.Without their overwhelming support and pleas for me to keep them informed, I might have given up. But a recent picture in a news story made me think back to a surreal moment on reddit. One of my favorite things that I learned from reddit was how to take criticism. Especially extremely harsh but still funny criticism. The first really jarring experience came from December 2010 - 3 months into planning … [Read more...]

Religious leaders denounce Spiritual Fitness Test (about time!)

The Pasadena Sun has a great collection of various religious leaders' thoughts on the mandatory Spiritual Fitness testing and training in the US Military. Rev. Skip Lindeman - United Church of Christ: ... Think about it: A guy takes the test and gets all A-grades on spirituality, and then says, “Gimme a gun so I can go kill as many of the enemy as I can!” Is that what a spiritual person does? How can anybody be spiritual, and then go blow another human being (i. e., child of God, made … [Read more...]
