Keeping God Out of the Funeral

Almost three years ago, on July 24th, just a month after I founded Grief Beyond Belief on Facebook, I went to a Baptist funeral.  When I returned home after the event, I wrote the following: Is Our Grief So Different? A dear friend of my family died last week, a woman who was a second [Read More…]

Creationism in American Schools

Did you know just a week ago Britain banned the teaching of creationism is their academic and free schools? This was huge news for science and a major blow to creationism. This led me to wonder why, if such laws are basically the same in the US since the courts have ruled that both creationism [Read More…]

I don’t think Answers in Genesis quite gets science Pt. 3 (of 3)

In part 1 and part 2, I currently addressing this article from Answers in Genesis. I’m not too happy how part 2 came out. I was mostly grinding through dumb stuff, but this next part, which I’ve been itching to get to, has some interesting (to me, at least) topics. I probably should have just skipped [Read More…]

Your Morning Happiness: Animals With Attitude

  Every pet owner KNOWS their friend til the end has emotion…. they get happy, sad, anxious, and scared just like us humans. One of the theist arguments for god… morality, consists of the premise that ONLY humans have emotion, ONLY humans know what is right or wrong…. or in this case what is fair. [Read More…]

250+ Links and No Jesus: The Grief Beyond Belief Library

It’s a problem you don’t think about until you are grieving.  Even if you have been an atheist all your life, unless you have faced grief and gone looking for something to read about how to handle it, it has probably never occurred to you: Much of what is published about bereavement includes religious content. [Read More…]

Rare Vintage Photos

Ever since its creation and widespread public availability, photography has preserved our most precious memories. These particular photographs from so many years ago tell a much bigger story, though, because of what they meant. The love you can see in them is just as real as those of heterosexual couples, and I’m proud to live [Read More…]

Soccer: The Great Liberal Conspiracy!

Conspiracy theories are never in short supply on the political right in the US, but this has to be a new level of crazy. Speaking to Fox News today, guest Dr. Keith Ablow said he is suspect of the timing of America’s World Cup Game against Germany, saying: “I am suspect because, here’s the thing. [Read More…]

Guest post by David Silverman: Preach. Proselytize. Convert.

Preach. Proselytize. Convert. These words all have associations with the religious world, eliciting visions of people in ties knocking on doors at 8am Sunday Morning, or adults preaching to other people’s children in the schools, or street pastors scaring passers by about such concepts as Hell (or in some cases, personal grooming). It’s a good [Read More…]

How “Thinspo” negatively effects self-esteem and self-perception

Christina here… Remember me! Sorry I don’t post here much anymore. I haven’t for reasons, but I’m posting now. Something on social media sites has been bugging me for awhile – Thinspo, or Thinspiration. So I made a video about it using my own body to highlight how easy it is to distort one’s appearance [Read More…]

I don’t think Answers in Genesis quite gets science Pt. 2

Previously, I managed to address one sentence of this article from Answers in Genesis. We find that creationists often use the “correct” words – observation, testability, repeatability, falsifiability, etc – however, like the common layman confusion about the word “theory” as used in science, they often get the other words off-the-mark as well.

Your Morning Happiness: What We Need Is A Montage! …and reluctantly, a cat.

Some funny clips in this vid, my fav being the Husky who is damn excited about a pile of leaves. The leaves must mimic the feeling of snow to the crazy dog, or the silly Husky is on cocaine! “It’s a helluva drug!” – Rick James The swiffer attacking puppy, and the two Huskies arguing [Read More…]

Another one bites the dust: Indiana’s gay marriage ban struck down.

I’m terrible at keeping promises, apparently.  I keep saying I won’t blog until I’ve tied the knot, but then awesome stuff keep popping up and I can’t resist.  Thankfully I have a fiancee who understands. Today a federal judge (the 18th in a row) ruled that Indiana’s gay marriage ban was unconstitutional: “Same-sex couples, who [Read More…]
