I not only write on Patheos, I also create YouTube videos. Lately, I’ve spent a lot of time creating videos on YouTube. My latest video is an attempt to learn more about the beliefs of the people who’ve subscribed to my channel and who follow me on social media. I figured many of them would be people who were other atheists but I also suspect that a few theists follow me since I advertise a lot of my content on… Read more

Ken Ham tweeted yesterday which is not news in and of itself but one of the tweets was quite interesting. The specific tweet spoke to me because it issued a fun and neat challenge to atheists. Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis fame and infamy wants to know what positive message atheists could possibly have for children. So I’ll respond to it myself and I’ll issue this challenge to all of my fellow atheist bloggers: what is your positive message… Read more

I’ve previously written about how I was applying to become a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I am in fact now a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro pursuing a Master’s Degree in Peace & Conflict Studies. I completed my first course on July 20th. I am overjoyed that in a fairly difficult course I was able to successfully obtain an A, a 97% score. I got a perfect score on… Read more

Indonesia is a southeastern Asian country that contains the world’s largest population of Muslims. It’s also the world’s 4th largest country in terms of population with over a quarter of a billion people residing in it. These are considerations that suggest that knowledge about the country ought to be far more normal within the United States than it often feels like it is. I myself have read about Indonesia for years and even speak and read in the language at… Read more

The purpose of this post is to share a handful of small YouTube atheist channels that create interesting and high-quality content. Each of the YouTubers featured here is a fascinating individual whose quality content has a small fan-base with less than 100 subscribers and each of these folks are people who in my opinion deserve far larger audiences. If you like the videos I share in this post the best thing you could do is to check out the rest… Read more

I consider myself a storyteller at least when I write fiction which is something I do a lot more than people realize. In writing today’s post I… Read more

This is a smartly written and utterly remarkable novel which is an emotional journey that showcases the transformation of Jesus from a local and charismatic wiseman to a larger than life figure and the assumed leader of a massive religious movement sweeping Judea. What Is Sovereignty & Why… Read more

Latin American secular humanists in the United States exist. We know this not only because of the impossibility of it not being true given the existence of Latin American nonbelievers and Latin American “nones” but also because organizations for Latin American secular humanists exist. We also know this because of the work of Puerto Rican secular humanists. So who’s doing the work to organize Latin American humanists in the United States on all levels? Where’s the work being done to… Read more
