Christina here… Right now, at this very moment, I’m in the Cincinnati airport. My husband and I have just finished our week of atheisting at the Secular Lobby Day, Reason Rally and the American Atheist National conference. We’re pooped, and we’ve been beset by delays all day trying to get home to St. Louis.
Michael Bay is rebooting the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, but with a twist: the beloved, zany terrapins from my youth are now aliens. Yes, aliens. Cracked.com pretty much sums up my reaction.
Christina here… Here’s a new Daily Twitter! I must admit: I do actually have ethical standards when I interact with people on twitter: 1. I mostly seek out people saying negative things about atheists or gay people on Twitter. 2. I re-tweet the person’s tweet, editing it for shortness if needed. 3. I only do [...]
At the training for Lobby Day, then SCA lobbyist Amanda Knief (now with American Atheists) said, “Atheists spend a lot of time pontificating instead of doing.” Immediately I tweeted the quote with an emphatic agreement.

Why do I read comments on news stories? I suspect I may have some deep-seeded masochist tendencies to which I should probably apprise Michaelyn. The Bible is not religion. It’ started out as Atheism in the first place. You can’t be secular if you don’t have a Bible. It’s the history of Western Civilization and [...]
What an enjoyable week! The road trip to DC with Michaelyn was so much fun! The Reason Rally was amazing. Some of the speakers sucked, but most of them were really good. The American Atheists conference was also a hoot! For me, the best part is always bumping into readers and getting to see old [...]
In Magnolia, Texas a five year-old child is in critical condition because his mother slit his throat. Daphne Spurlock was arrested Saturday after police found her son on the floor of their home, covered in blood. Investigators say Spurlock stomped on her son’s chest first. When that didn’t get rid of the “demons,” she cut [...]
