Rush Limbaugh does not like the Colbert pick to follow David Letterman.

Every time Rush Limbaugh makes a sad face, somewhere in the world a JT grows his wings. So Colbert is succeeding David Letterman as host of the Late Show (he’ll sadly be dropping his character).  What you may think is just a new comedian being hired to interview celebrities and tell a few jokes is [Read More...]

The sites where you should change your password on account of the Heartbleed bug.

I know this isn’t atheism or politics related, but it’s still important enough to blast.  A recently discovered bug that existed in some of the internet’s most popular sites (think facebook, youtube, etc.) allowed some people access to your email and passwords in the database of those sites.  No bueno. So you may need to [Read More...]

One more day to get into the Foundation Beyond Belief conference for a discount!

Foundation Beyond Belief, the nation’s largest humanist charitable organization, is holding its first national conference!  We’re talking about an organization lucky enough to have people like Dale McGowan, Hemant Mehta, Ed Brayton, Todd Steifel, and more.  If ever there was a group assembled of humanism’s best and brightest, this is it.  The conference is titled [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: baby tapir!

Good morning everybody.  Sorry for the light day on Friday.  Michaelyn only had one class and we decided to hang out.  :) I’m prepping my talk for American Atheists this weekend, so it will be a week of lighter posting.  First off, what’s a tapir?  It’s… …a large herbivorousmammal, similar in shape to a pig, with a [Read More...]

David Silverman drops the hammer in open letter to Brandeis University.

You’ve probably heard by now, but Brandeis University derped a bit.  A lot.  They are the super-massive black hole at the center of a derp universe.  They invited Ayaan Hirsi Ali to address their 2014 graduates and said they would bestow upon her an honorary degree.  If you don’t know anything about Ali, google her.  The [Read More...]

Gaming it up!

I’ve decided to dedicate more of my time to being a part of the atheist gamer community.  At the very least, this means that a few times a week I’m going to stream some game, hopefully with other atheist gamers.  So if you’re an atheist gamer and want some (talentless) company playing your game, let [Read More...]

Help save LogiCon!

One of my favorite places to speak is in Northwest, Arkansas.  It’s pretty, close to my family, but most of all the secular groups in that region are really strong (probably the strongest that don’t get national attention).  This year they’re running their LogiCon conference again.  I was invited to speak, but it’s the same [Read More...]

Jon Stewart on the hypocrisy of Sean Hannity as he “investigates” Spring Break.

The sheer hubris of Hannity as well as the people on his panel.  First, they’re investigating what goes on during Spring Break, which is a list of details nobody is trying to hide (in fact, they’re advertised).  Second, well…the double standards.  You’ll just have to watch: The Daily Show Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,Indecision [Read More...]

Oh, the irony. A New Jersey man accidentally shot himself in the leg at a Pennsylvania event put on by the National Rifle Association, police told the Lehigh Valley Live.

Your morning happiness: jumping is for lamers.

This bunny wins the gold medal for innovation, even if it finishes in last place for “jumping over shit”. The trainer’s hands read as “disappointment.”  I’d be elated – my bunny beat the system. [Read more...]
