American Atheists: only people at the debate telling it how it is.

Oh American Atheists, you beautiful, beautiful people.  At the debate tonight there will be a truck circling Lynn University that bears the following uncomfortable facts about the Mormon church. Freaking wonderful! And it won’t end after the debate.  The truck will follow Mitt Romney’s campaign bus out of town and on the road for a [Read More...]

4 Brilliant Atheists for You to Follow

Steven here… When I started this series I came in with the belief that this movement was filled with unsung heroes. I was right about that. The depth and diversity of the movement though, is just mindboggling. I can’t express how much of a privilege it is to be a part of this community. The [Read More...]

Godless NFL thread.

Holy crap.  Second week in a row I sucked it up with my picks. The player to watch this week is Andrew Luck.  Emotions are high in Indianapolis and the Jets secondary is broken.  I think he’ll have a big day. The upset pick for this week follows my PtW pick: I think the Colts [Read More...]

Post Rapture Looting: atheism-

Christina here… Yesterday I joined the dudes over at Post Rapture Looting for episode 38 of their podcast. I offered a reading of “Why atheists aren’t suing Muslims in 10 questions” and then we talked about how I lost my toes in a horrific boating accident involving a bear and a circular saw without the [Read More...]

I really motherfucking love goddamn science

Steven here… Maddox is brilliant. His recent post regarding the Facebook page, “I fucking love science” is pretty interesting. I think most of his criticisms can be summed up as him not liking the page’s name. Perhaps he would like “I fucking love scientists and the end results of the scientific process” instead. I agree [Read More...]

College football open thread.

Arkansas has a bye week, so who cares about college football this week? Oh, that’s right, some atheists.  Ok, fine.  The game to watch this week is undoubtedly #2 Florida vs. #7 South Carolina.  I think SC is the better team, but with Marcus Lattimore out, it’s going to be tough.  I give it to [Read More...]

When the monster was born.

I was not popular in high school.  I wanted to be.  Didn’t we all? Initially I tried being like everybody else and found I wasn’t any good at it.  So eventually I took off in the complete opposite direction, bucking all social norms and claiming that I didn’t care for acceptance.  Of course, that was [Read More...]

Los Links 10/20.

Here’s all my twitter extras from yesterday. Even when no human remains who will stoop to support your prejudice, you can always claim the endorsement of god. Cosmic golf with @everlyevie. <3 This is totally something I would’ve done in college. “One shouldn’t attribute malice where incompetence would suffice.” ~ Napoleon Cthulu pulling [Read More...]

Pastor tells it like it is!

Christina here… You really need to watch this video of a pastor from the Brentwood Christian Church in Missouri (my state, woo!) giving a bible-thumping speech about gay rights. TRUST ME. Watch it to the end. This guy was born and raised in Springfield, MO, home of Skepticon. Can somebody invite him to Skepticon? Or [Read More...]

Fallout from Paul Ryan’s photo op.

This is just disgusting. In the wake of Rep. Paul Ryan’s embarrassing soup kitchen photo-oplast week, the organization that runs the facility tells The Huffington Post that donors have begun pulling their money out of the Youngstown, Ohio charity. Ryan may have suffered a few late-night jokes, but the fallout for the soup kitchen appears [Read More...]

Comment roundup 10/19.

I got a live one on twitter who dropped this old bromide… @jteberhard religion can and does make people do bad things, a relationship with the one true God is love and shows love to everyone. — Renee Jones (@brjones64) October 10, 2012 Ok.  The first implication is that whatever Renee Jones believes about god [Read More...]

Binders of shut up and have a baby.

Meet Republican Congressman Joe Walsh, who just can’t figure out why we’re even having the discussion about abortions that could save the mother’s life. In a recent debate with challenger Tammy Duckworth (D), Walsh said he was against abortion “without exception,” including rape, incest and in cases in which the life or health of the [Read More...]
