GODLESSNESS: Half-naked atheism.

Boy, there’s a clickbait headline for the ages. Sadly, this post won’t be as salacious as some of you were hoping.  My friend at the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Andrew Seidel, had an encounter at the gym the other day and decided to write about it.  It was just so damn touching I had to [Read More...]

GODLESSNESS & PERSONAL: I have to brag.

I feel like a pretentious ass, but I have to share this.  J. Michael Spencer is starting up an Oasis in Boston (fuck yes!) and has written about how the project came to be.  I’m in there, along with my wife: Over time, I began to read less and less of PZ’s blog and more [Read More...]

FAITH & POLITICS: Prince Charles may intervene on Raif Badawi’s behalf.

I don’t like Prince Charles (anti-vax, supporter of alt-med, ugh), but I must give credit where it’s due.  It turns out even people we don’t generally like can be correct at times, and it’s just as important to make note of that as the multitude of times when they’re wrong.  This is one of those [Read More...]

MUSIC & GODLESSNESS: Jaclyn Glenn covers “Take Me To Church.”

This is positively brilliant. If ever there was a godless music charity concert, who would you want to see there?  My dream lineup would include Dan Barker, Shelley Segal, Roy Zimmerman, Jaclyn Glenn, and Tim Minchin.  The times I’ve gotten to sing with them (except Minchin) have been some of my favorite musical experiences ever. Man, [Read More...]

Not a religion.

I follow an Aussie on twitter who goes by @MrOzAtheist.  He’s possibly my favorite tweeter.  He says so much with so few words. The other day he was having a repartee with someone who was saying atheism required faith.  He responded with this lovely image: Beautiful.   [Read more...]

Greg Abbott backs nativity scene in Texas Capitol

Literally a few hours after I post a story about how the vast majority of Americans support having religious holiday displays on government property, I find a story of a nativity scene going up in the Texas Capitol. On Monday, a very simplistic nativity scene (pictured above) was unveiled in the basement of the Capitol’s rotunda [Read More...]

Berlin grants humanist students a holiday – with the day off and everything!

Berlin has enshrined World Humanist Day as what would pretty much amount to a federal holiday here in the States: Schools in Berlin have recognized World Humanist Day as a holiday on a par with All Saints’ Day, Yom Kippur and Eid al-Fitr. The decision means Berlin pupils who subscribe to humanism — a philosophy [Read More...]

Kirk Cameron thanks atheists for rating ‘Saving Christmas’ worst movie ever

Despite being widely received by critics and the public as simply a terrible movie, Kirk Cameron is trying to spin the negative media around his new movie, Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas, as a positive and would like to thank us godless heathens for all the free attention he’s getting from it. From the Saving Christmas website: To quote Barnum [Read More...]

Austin City Council candidate on her attack ad against ‘self admitted atheist’ opponent

In the run-off race for Austin City Council District 4, religion was the last thing most people thought would be brought up. That was until Laura Pressley released an infographic comparing her and her opponent, Gregorio Casar. The infographic alleges, among roughly a dozen other comparisons, that Gregorio Casar is a “self admitted atheist” while [Read More...]

Austin City Council candidate attacks supposedly ‘self admitted atheist’ opponent

The run-off race for Austin City Council District 4 is probably not something most people, especially outside of Austin, will pay much attention to, including myself. The race is between Laura Pressley and Gregorio Casar. Casar led Pressley with an impressive 39-22 lead in the November 4th election, commencing the run-off that is set to [Read More...]
