American Atheists new Military Director

1376208_300

American Atheists American Atheists, the “Marines of Freethought”, this weekend hired a new Military Director to help ensure that no egregious religious violations conducted by the Department of Defense maintain a status quo for religious inequality in the armed forces. Rock Beyond Belief wants to congratulate American Atheists on filling this much needed position. Many [Read More...]

When foxhole atheists find each other, they organize

Sergeant Joshua Gould is a foxhole atheist stationed at Fort Bragg. He wrote to me with two important questions, so I’m breaking them into two posts. Do you have some sort of club? So I have been reading your blog for a while and I went to the Rock Beyond Belief a few months ago. [Read More...]

I just missed the last chance to dance. How about you?

The Secular Student Alliance is the best ‘chaptering’ organization in our movement… by an extremely wide margin. The number of active chapters eclipses any other organization. Their numbers still continue to grow, and they even have groups at military academies, such as West Point. When I started the Military Atheists & Secular Humanists (MASH) movement [Read More...]

Spiritual Fitness: “Chaplains are advocates for everyone”

The above image is part of that mandatory Spiritual Fitness training you (yes, you) can help us debunk! Participate in that survey to help scientists help foxhole atheists. We are still banned on post because of a single sentence in the Chaplain regulations (AR 165-1) “DFGLs will not conduct services before approval by the IMCOM or MEDCOM Command [Read More...]

It seems that a failed end-times prophecy should logically teach adherents a valuable lesson in gullibility (a word that emphatically is in the dictionary, but unfortunately spelled incorrectly in many dictionaries.) You’ve heard the saying about cockroaches surviving even a nuclear world war? Well, much like cockroaches, the [Read More...]

Army medic “has seen Christianity, Judaism, and Islam in action…Frankly, I’ll pass.”

Mikey Weinstein, President of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, shared something with me today. He shared a report in USA Today that  speaks about the statistical trend away from traditional religious identities. MRFF is an important – albeit religiously neutral - ally to the secular community and fierce defender of the US Constitution. But Mikey saw something that he [Read More...]

Shitfaced in the Portal Potty

I’ve been deployed to the sandbox for several months. So I made this: What do you think about my Portal Potty? Don’t get the joke? You must not have played the science and physics-based video game Portal (or it’s incredible sequel – what an ending!) That’s okay, you don’t have to play it to get [Read More...]

The single best video ever made about foxhole atheists (possibly NSFW)

This is that rare combination of well-informed reporting and genuinely funny brash sarcasm. Raleigh-based A-News is the DIY equivalent to the Daily Show / Colbert Report for atheists. I have no idea why this show isn’t already massively popular. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhKKLhGijuQ This entire episode is dedicated to the recently reinvigorated struggle for acceptance by foxhole atheists.
