Epicdrinktime

My family is comprised of die hard Razorback fans (gonna stomp Kansas State in the Sugar Cotton Bowl!).  For basketball, we always head up the road to El Chico and wine and dine and watch the hogs. My brother takes the wine part seriously, because sometimes one frosty mug the size of his torso isn’t [Read More...]

Happy Birthday to a Friend

My father is a huge fan of Greta Christina and it was him who turned me on to her blog.  Afterward I was hooked.  For a good portion of my college career hers was the only blog I would never, ever miss.  She had all the eloquence of Dawkins, the concise reason of Harris, and [Read More...]

Sunrise Over Arkansas

My best ideas have never come under duress.  I have seldom figured something out or had a startling realization by sitting down and consciously asserting myself mentally. No, the best way for me to think is to control my environment; to remove anything that might be sucking up brainpower and relax.  For me, the best [Read More...]

Thank You

I blogged for about eight years before joining FtB.  First I was on xanga (all the cool kids were doing it), then for about six months this year I was on my own site.  Up until FtB I never gave a thought to how many readers I had – I just wrote because it was [Read More...]

I know Christmas is over, but…

I thought I might like to have the last word about Christmas. Richard Land – one of my favorite radio personalities on the local Christian radio station I listen to, wrote a piece for the Washington Post titled, “Why it’s hard to be a Christian at Christmas“. You’ve got a whole month in which no [Read More...]

Christmas Shouldn't Be Special

In my quest to unseat PZ as king of the firebrands, I have acquired a Trophy (Primary) Girlfriend™.  If you’ve hung around me at any major conferences recently you’ve probably met her (she tolerates hanging around me).  Her name is Michaelyn and she’s…nice.  She’s really, really nice.  To pretty much everybody.  She makes facebook statuses [Read More...]

Love

I am exceedingly lucky – I am surrounded by love on all sides.  I am practically saturated with the stuff. My reputation is that of an angry atheist, and I am.  I’m angry at what is wrong with a world full of people I’d never stop hugging if I had the choice.  As my name [Read More...]

Merry Friendsmas!

FAUX News and a large contingent of privilege-demanding Christians are always telling me how we atheists are waging a war on Christmas.  I always just shrugged it off with, at most, a chuckle at how inane it was.  But today I find myself thinking that if we’re going to do the time, maybe we should [Read More...]
