I’ll be on the Dogma Debate show tonight.

I’m about to make the 90 minute trek to the Denver airport before taking the 2 hour-long flight back to Kansas City before making the hour-long drive back home.  After all that, I’m going to pop onto the internet, haggard and frazzled, and try to sound coherent.  Here’s the info as emailed to me by [Read More...]

Happy ending for the Kansas City Atheist Coalition.

It turns out that not all religious people prioritize evangelizing over doing good works.  The KCAC have reported that we have a happy ending to this story.  The atheists will get to volunteer helping the homeless, they will get to work with religious people on common goals, and there are religious groups that haven’t had [Read More...]

Anybody driving through Cincinnati to get to Skepticon?

The talk last night went really well.  I felt I gave a good talk, the turnout was great, there were religious people in the audience (one of them told me I was as bad as Osama Bin Laden in the Q&A)…it was just good times. Also, one of my groomsmen moved to Colorado Springs last [Read More...]

Christians defend the Kansas City Rescue Mission.

I wasn’t going to write anything today, then the magic happened.  The Kansas City Star quoted my blog about the Kansas City Rescue Mission in an article. The atheist group has taken offense at the rebuff, but a local rescue mission defends its position. “We are an unapologetically Christian organization, and we always have been,” [Read More...]

I know, I suck.

Christina here… Hey! Remember me? I feel like such an asshole. I miss you guys. I can’t believe how long it’s been since I graced the pages of this blog, or even logged into WordPress. I haven’t written about atheism in such a long time. The truth is, I’ve been kind of busy. First, I [Read More...]

Church of England to apologize for rejecting evolution.

Better late than never!  Good on ‘em for this: The Church of England will concede in a statement that it was over-defensive and over-emotional in dismissing Darwin’s ideas. It will call “anti-evolutionary fervour” an “indictment” on the Church”. The bold move is certain to dismay sections of the Church that believe in creationism and regard [Read More...]

New Scarlet Letter preview.

At Skepticon 4 I was interviewed for a documentary called The Scarlet Letter.  It’s about coming out of the closet as atheists.  Here was the first promo: And now there’s a new one out featuring the wonderful Debbie Goddard among others: The film is pretty much done, but a few expenses remain.  Head over to [Read More...]

Speaking at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Tuesday night.

Ok, here are the details.  I’m talking about the various arguments for god’s existence and why they suck. Here’s a map of the UCCS campus: http://www.uccs.edu/~map/ The talk will be on the first floor of the University Center (UCTR on the map).  Enter through the doors west of the mountain lion statue and head toward Clyde’s [Read More...]

Good to see the family again.

Thanks for enduring another day of silence yesterday.  I promise that I spent it enjoying the wilderness and enjoying the all-too-rare time with my parents. I have found that my best thoughts are seldom revealed by sitting down and forcing myself to think.  No, I’ve had my best ideas by placing myself in an atmosphere [Read More...]

Kansas City Atheist Coalition turned away as volunteers for feeding the poor.

For the last several years the Kansas City Atheist Coalition has provided the Kansas City Rescue Mission with, by far, it’s largest group of volunteers every Thanksgiving when the group distributes meals to the poor.  This includes driving meals to residences and other work.  Here’s a picture of me and Michaelyn last year volunteering: And [Read More...]

What about forgiveness?

While tabling the other day, a woman with a sizable cross necklace approached the table and opened with “So you guys are what, atheists and agnostics?  Why?” with a tone suggesting that not believing a person rose from the dead was something out of the ordinary. Take a moment and imagine if an atheist went [Read More...]

Kansas student suspended for wearing a purse.

Ok, last post for today, then I seriously need to get on the road.  A middle school student in Kansas has been suspended for wearing a purse to school: A 13-year-old boy in Kansas was suspended on Wednesday for wearing a Vera Bradley purse — and officials say he can’t come back until he takes [Read More...]

Christian claims atheism is a result of a tense relationship with one’s father.

Another quick post I couldn’t help but put up.  A psychologist is saying that atheism is not the result of merely finding the claims of religions (like people rising from the dead, walking on water, etc.) unbelievable.  No, there must be some deeper explanation for when someone reads stories about a global flood that somehow [Read More...]
