These are hilarious (and so true).  More at the link. [Read more...]

FFRF event in Alabama in June

I love all my speaking gigs, but every now and again one comes down the pipe that just makes me giddy.  The FFRF’s July Lake Hypatia Advance, June 29-July 1, is one of those events. Just look at the description! The annual “Glorious 4th” at Lake Hypatia, Ala., sponsored by the Alabama Freethought Association, an [Read More...]

DayZ: Zombie survival

I took a vacation day the other day because I was exhausted.  I spent it at home not doing squat but playing video games (NBA 2k12, SWTOR).  About halfway through the day my friend Jeremiah alerted me to a new mod for Arma2 that is picking up steam called DayZ.  Long story short: this is [Read More...]

Diablo III thread

Tomorrow Diablo III gets released.  Not gonna lie, it looks kind of underwhelming. The graphics look dated, probably due to the release getting pushed back so much, and the landscapes look bland.  The game play doesn’t look terribly different from Diablo II, not that that’s bad since D2 rocked, but a sequel should be more [Read More...]

My mother

My mother is the straight up shiz.  Seriously.  In college, I could not announce I was going home for a weekend without at least a few of my friends asking if they could tag along to go see my mom.  She’s generous to a fault, almost, and loved by everybody she encounters. My mother is [Read More...]

As the faithful watch cruelty with indifference

Some days I cringe when I think of the people with whom I have to share the earth. Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill that ensures Arizona workers won’t lose their professional licenses for denying services on religious grounds. The bill is a broader version of the so-called conscience clause that Arizona and other [Read More...]

Let's Attack this giant cross project in Missouri!

Christina here… So, apparently in my home state of Missouri, in Branson (which is basically like Vegas for Ned Flanders) city developers recently approved plans to build a cross so big, you can go inside of it and ride an elevator to the top. Despite this cross being on private land and having nothing to [Read More...]

What arguments for god would you like to see rebutted?

This is for a project.  Please help me out. I need to know what arguments you’ve heard for god’s existence.  Which one, in particular, would you like to see me take a swing at? Gonna leave this up all weekend. [Read more...]

Look at all the fucks I give

I normally don’t care when people leave negative comments.  Part of being public with your life means you’re going to get some criticism and, as the axiom goes, haters gonna hate.  Fortunately, I’m generally pretty good at separating bad criticism from criticism with merit.  Greta actually wonders how I never seem to let it get [Read More...]

Atheist poker for charity

Bumping this up! Remember any donations above the cost of my plane ticket go to Foundation Beyond Belief.  I come from a whole family of card players.  Poker is commonly played when I visit my childhood home.  So when I got the invite to be a “celebrity” player (how do you say that without sounding [Read More...]

A new dawn for Sodomerica

Christina here… Let’s talk about this editorial in the Washington Post Times about Obama and his “homosexual agenda”. I’m sure you know President Obama recently came out in support of same-sex marriage. Woo! Of course, this marks the end of America as we know it. The whole framework of our country is going to be destroyed now. [Read More...]

But our athletes might get cooties!

A high school baseball team in Arizona was poised to go to the state championship, but forfeited before the big game.  Why? Paige Sultzbach, a freshman, is playing baseball because her high school doesn’t offer girls softball. But the school Mesa Prep was to face in the final, Our Lady of Sorrows Academy, said its [Read More...]

Science is the opposite of religion

Between various debates lately where most of the arguments take the form of “we haven’t answered X question, therefore god,” this image made me smile a little extra big. [Read more...]

"Mostly" equal protection?

DrB-   No surprise, Romney would happily carry on a tradition of discrimination against fellow human beings. No shocker there.   I heard a snippet of his ABC interview, where he said this: “Well, when these issues were raised in my state of Massachusetts, I indicated my view, which is I do not favor marriage [Read More...]
