Great news about the Atheist Gamer Extra Life team and a guest post about the Extra Life fundraiser!
I honestly think the future of atheism is in community-building and I’ve scarcely ever seen an organization more adept at it than Oasis. The Oasis here in Kansas City is one of my favorite places to be every Sunday. I literally look forward to it all week. And this Sunday Boston is getting ready to [Read More...]

It appears that a few of my blogs today will come via press release I was sent directly. I’ve made the big time! Wooooooo! So for those unfamiliar with Robert Jeffress, he’s a darling of Fox News.

She also runs a youtube channel called Think Stephtically on which she has pointed out on a few occasions that Adam Miller, a purported Faith Healer is, well, full of shit.

Due to apparent apathy in the wake of the fourth secular blogger murdered in Bangladesh this year (including the chief of police blaming the bloggers themselves for hurting the feelings of religious people, [Read More...]
So today I’m officially another year saggier. w00t. Ordinarily this is my attitude toward my birthday: In fact, I plan to spend this one renewing my driver’s license (maybe I’ll wear a birthday hat for that) and then getting interviewed for the Chasing Skeptics podcast later (maybe I’ll wear my birthday suit for that). Wheeeeeee! [Read More...]
