Post-Skepticon resolutions

Steven here… One of my best friends, Kasi Rogers, recently posted the following on her Facebook page after getting home from Skepticon V: “It’s 6pm and I’m thinking about going to sleep. It was good to get back to warmer, damp Portland. I ran into two neighbors/friends on the train home – one was headed [Read More...]

Podcast? Podcast!

Steven here… The reason I’m a skeptic is not because of all the awesome blogs dedicated to reason. It’s because of podcasts. They are incredibly effective outreach tools. Because of that, me and the rest of the WWJTD team have been talking about what a WWJTD podcast would be like. Most of the contributors have [Read More...]

“I don’t vote.”

Steven here… I’ve seen a lot of people address undecided voters, and protest voters this year. But not a lot of time spent on those abstaining from the practice altogether. I can understand not voting if life gets in the way. I’ve missed votes because of work schedules, traveling and just not getting registered in [Read More...]

Atheists of note

Steven here… You all have been doing a wonderful job supplying me with candidates for this series. I can’t thank you enough. I am pretty sure I’m going to have more candidates than I know what to do with after this year’s Skepticon and meet hordes of them in real life.   1. Deanna Joy [Read More...]

The graffiti outside of my apartment

A father responds to his transgender child

Steven here… We see a lot of stories of parents that don’t know how to be compassionate. Kicking out and belittling their LBGT kids is sadly one of the more common things we see. One of my cousins is transgender. She recently made a post about how happy she was to be able to jettison [Read More...]

I’m changing my vote

Steven here… I’m a filthy liberal, but if Joss Whedon says to do it, I have to. [Read more...]

“Einstein proves my point!”

Steven here… In my debates with theists, I tend to have to bring up the flaws in religious epistemology. It’s an incredibly flawed method of finding out what’s real, especially when compared to that of science. The problem with bringing up the superiority of science, is that inevitably you will hear the argument that Albert [Read More...]

Being a better skeptic and a better satirist

Steven here…. Poe’s Law was coined by Nathan Poe in 2005 and states: “Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is utterly impossible to parody a Creationist in such a way that someone won’t mistake it for the genuine article.” Because of the similarity between parody sites such as Landover Baptist [Read More...]

Our movement isn’t special–but it can be

Steven here… For the past couple of years the skeptic/atheist community has dealt with something of a kerfuffle dealing with sexism and harassment policies. Like most of you, I’ve watched as that debate went on from a mild comment about how people conduct themselves at conferences to the advent of Atheism+. But while all of [Read More...]
