Going solo

Steven here… The first thing I want to do today is to thank JT for allowing me to contribute to WWJTD(I’ve been a contributor here for some time now, though you could be forgiven for not knowing that as I haven’t exactly been prolific). I very much appreciate that he had enough trust in me [Read More…]

“Don’t you just love the New Pope?”

No. Fuck no. Listen up all you atheists who are so thrilled by Cardinal Bergoglio: Pope Francis is *not* progressive. He is not kind. He is an anti-gay bigot, like the popes before him. He still shields child molesters from prosecution. He still fights equality. He still subjugates women. You cannot do these things and [Read More…]

Let’s talk about fallacies, baby

Steven here… This is a follow up to a previous post I did highlighting exceptions and false positive identifications of logical fallacies. Identifying logical fallacies is a powerful, if imperfect, tool for separating the truth from the bullshit. Reflecting on false positives can be a useful way of keeping yourself from using a list of [Read More…]

Good news and bad news out of Oklahoma

Steven here… You may recall us talking about Scott Esk, Republican candidate for state representative? If you don’t here’s a refresher. Yeah, that guy. The one who thinks that we should straight up murder people for being gay. Anyway, the primary results are in. Esk lost his primary, and he lost so hard. This gives [Read More…]

Follow up on Josiah Biblename and thank you

Steven here… The other day I put out the call for donations to help a fellow atheist who had lost his only means of livelihood. You came through. Above and beyond the call in fact. Between WWJTD readers and the rest of the secular community over $1,300 was raised in under 24 hours. Instead of [Read More…]

Facebook fanpage for JT

Steven here… Fun fact: JT has a Facebook fan page! It’s actually been up for some time, but JT refuses to do any kind of self-promotion with it. So I’m going behind his back to ask you to go “like” it. #rebel #sorrynotsorry https://www.facebook.com/pages/JT-Eberhard/387729659103 [Read more…]

Liz Cheney doesn’t have enough empathy for family

Steven here… Often when a conservative politician has a family member come out as gay, they tend to soften their rhetoric or do a 180 on their civil rights position. While I don’t think this should be a necessary condition for persuading them to treat others well, it’s often sufficient motivation. That said, Liz Cheney [Read More…]

Zombie Attack Prevention Tips

Steven here… Ok, so I’m kind of stealing the zombie-theme from JT for a minute here, but I had to share this PSA made by Maria D’Souza Walters with the folks at Death By Puppets. We need a Zombie Rights Activist movement. After all, aren’t zombies the real victims here? All those living people provocatively [Read More…]

Review: Why Are You Atheists So Angry?

Steven here… I’ve decided to do some reviews of books, movies, and video games relevant to atheists. Without respect to timeliness. So to start things out, I finally cracked open Greta Christina’s Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless. Greta is focused like a laser. With incredible clarity, she [Read More…]
