Reason Rally/American Atheists wrap up

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!

A busy time was had by all…

Christina here…   Hooooooboy, I’ve been so busy the past few days! Chris and I have literally been on our feet nonstop from 7am-12am every day since Wednesday. Thus, I haven’t had much time to blog.

Nathalie is back

Nathalie Rothschild, who doesn’t think you should come out for the Reason Rally, got spanked pretty hard after her last salvo both on various blogs and in the comments of the article itself.  Well, she’s back and traipsing along the same lines.  Credit to her for having the moxy to venture out again.  Demerits for [Read More...]

Via Maryam Namazie. the Nude Photo Revolutionaries Calendar is being launched in homage to Egyptian atheist, student and blogger Aliaa Magda Elmahdy who posted a nude photo of herself, announcing the post on Twitter under the hashtag, #NudePhotoRevolutionary.
