FtB Interviews: Greta Christina

We’re rolling merrily along with these interviews. We’ve already had Greg Laden, Jen McCreight, Kylie Sturgess, and Assassin Actual. Today you get Greta Christina. Greta Christina is one of the most beloved and admired figures in this movement. She has also become one of my confidants and closest friends over the course of the last [Read More...]

FtB Interviews: Assassin Actual

While many of the bloggers here at FtB such as Greg Laden, Jen McCreight, and Kylie Sturgess are adept at destroying people with the power of logic, today’s interview is with a man who could literally end your life from 1,000 yards away before slipping back into the shadows.  In fact, he probably has you [Read More...]

FtB Interviews: Kylie Sturgess

Up next in the FtB interview series is super activist Kylie Sturgess, aka the Token Skeptic! Though she lives in Australia, you can still see her rocking the Skepticon 4 t-shirt in the picture on the right.  Are you going to be at Skepticon 4?  Kylie won’t  be there, but PZ, Ed, Jen, Greta, Richard, [Read More...]

FtB Interviews: Jen McCreight

Last time we learned that Greg Laden always knows what people are going to say (James Randi would be very excited to hear about that). He also has a highly motivating, if somewhat odd fear of large cats. Today I delve into the secret life of Jen McCreight who writes the popular blog Blag Hag [Read More...]

FtB Interviews: Greg Laden

Freethought Blogs is growing at an insanely fast rate.  Glorious, says I!  However, a lot of you may not be aware of all the authors on FtB.  Even if you are, you may not know who their celebrity crushes are or what they think of Kim Kardashian’s marriage.  In an effort to acquaint everybody with [Read More...]

Going Kinda, Sorta, Off The Grid

Ok, crappy post forthcoming. First some history. I’ve scuffled with anorexia the last few years. In 2010 I got better, but when I moved to Columbus in January of this year I relapsed and I relapsed hard. Stress, like the stress of leaving my comfort zone, moving to a new place, and having a new [Read More...]

Server is Sick, Prayer is Worthless

I know the FtB server has been slow and crash-happy the last 24 hours.  Atheism, it turns out, is becoming too damn popular and the groans you hear when loading a page is our poor server straining under the weight of the rising tide of godlessness!  This leaves us with three options. 1.  Quick, everybody [Read More...]

Moving day

It was a pretty short hike over to my new home.  It isn’t so much the distance that discomposes me, but the change of class.  My old blog had cracked tiles, peeling wallpaper, and the bedroom door wouldn’t shut all the way.  Were I not such an ardent skeptic, I may have believed the place [Read More...]

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go…

In August two of atheism’s most prominent bloggers, PZ Myers and Ed Brayton, broke away from scienceblogs to form a new site: Freethought Blogs.  They’ve since acquired many of the Olympians of secular blogging such as Ophelia Benson, Jen McCreight, and Greta Christina.  This site is already, quite literally, the biggest atheist site on the [Read More...]


For those that read my unfinished rebuttal to Isaac, that was not supposed to have posted.  I’ve offered him a chance to revise his opening in a longer post to include more details and did not want to post until I heard back from him.  Please disregard that. /wants to be fair [Read more...]
