The Qur’an is true. We can all go home now.

Do you know what a mathematical proof is? Typically, they use axioms from Math-world to prove (absolutely) other things in Math-world. This can often be helpful in guiding us in reality, but that’s not precisely what a mathematical proof does. [Read more...]

Evangelical Darth Vader.

Apparently I’m late to this party, but this is just too damn funny not to share. For those who feel the need to cleanse their pallet of the bible verses, here’s a version with Samuel L. Jackson: And here’s Arnold if that didn’t do it for you: [Read more...]

Welcome three new science bloggers to WWJTD!

In an effort to make sure the blog stays up to date with various subjects related to atheism, I’ve elected to bring on some science writers.  While I’m decently informed for a layman, I can’t comment as fully on many science-related stories as I’d like.  These three will hopefully fill that void. Amanda is an [Read More...]

Help the SSA at St. Charles Community College get to Skepticon!

WE’VE HIT OUR GOAL!!!  ANY ADDITIONAL DONATIONS WILL GO TO THE SSA NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS!!!

7th Circuit dismisses case on the parsonage exemption.

Earlier this year the FFRF filed a lawsuit on the grounds that pastors were given tax benefits unavailable to atheist leaders.  They won in district court and the state appealed.  Now the 7th Circuit has overturned that ruling. The panel, in a unanimous decision by Circuit Judge Joel Flaum, vacated a strong ruling a year ago by [Read More...]

I love Lucien Greaves and the Temple of Satan.

For those following the situation in Orange County, FL (where public schools allowed groups to distribute bibles and then decided to allow atheists to distribute literature rather than lose a lawsuit), there’s some happy and amusing news courtesy of fellow Patheos blogger Hemant Mehta. The Temple of Satan has filed a formal request to share [Read More...]

Guest post: “Richard Dawkins is Coming…to Conservative Town” (To the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town)

The following is a guest post by Teresa MacBain. In the heart of the south, an atheist student group is making waves! The Kennesaw State University (KSU) Atheists United is hosting Richard Dawkins, November 21, 2014. I, for one, know just how bold and courageous they are in this endeavor. In late summer 2012, KSU [Read More...]

Did you know Carl Sagan wasn’t an atheist?

This was news to me, but according to a piece at another Patheos blog called Seasons of Grace over on the Catholic channel. I’m volunteering with the Recovering from Religion’s Hotline Project and have had to vet a couple applicants today (and another in an hour) while trying to keep up with current events.  I [Read More...]

Welcome “Brooke” as a contributor.

Brooke is a friend I’ve met on the road who might be more passionate about being an activist than anybody I know.  I also wanted to pick up someone who can write competently about sex, since Christina has mostly moved on to being her own internet figure (they grow up so fast).  Sex is an [Read More...]

Catholic Bishops in Kenya oppose tetanus vaccine because “it’s population control in disguise.”

Just like the Church’s campaign that said condoms increase the spread of AIDS, now bishops in Kenya are saying the same tetanus vaccine the WHO has administered in other countries without any deleterious effects to the population are, in face, laced with birth control: “We are calling on all Kenyans to avoid the tetanus vaccination [Read More...]

SCOTUS votes 7-2 to lift stay on same-sex marriage in Kansas.

This is very interesting… The Supreme Court on Wednesday night lifted a stay on issuing same-sex marriage licenses in Kansas, making it the 33rd state in which gay unions are allowed. The decision indicated that the justices are content to allow the list of states where gay marriages are sanctioned to expand, even as it [Read More...]
