Tom Gilson wants to play with me. :)

I wrote a post in refutation of the editors of the new book True Reason in which they seek to defend Christianity.  They wanted questions from readers of the Friendly Atheist and I thought their answers…sucked.  Now Gilson has written a response to me.  He accuses me of misunderstanding him (maybe those parts were just [Read More…]

The thing about bringing your message into a public forum is that other people can respond…

This image made me smile: When religious people attempt to sell their story in public, it’s free game.  Oh you know what the pre-ordained purpose for my life is?  One can only wonder why god told you and not me.  That’s cool though.  By the way, god told me that your purpose was to give [Read More…]

Justin Welby: the Church of England accepting gay marriage will lead to the mass murder of Christians.

Sometimes a claim is made that is so logically incoherent, so stark raving mad in composition, so inherently contemptuous of the notion of cause and effect, that a rebuttal cannot even apply to it.  This claim, by the Archbishop of Canturbury, is what I’m talking about: African Christians will be killed if the Church of [Read More…]

I bought a box of teddy grahams.

And I did so because of this commercial: A gay couple?  Raising well-adjusted kids just like every major psychological body says they do?  Whoa, now that’s edgy. And an interracial couple?  Being portrayed as wholesome and stable in the melting pot of America?  Way to push the envelope. Reading the youtube comments on that video [Read More…]

Same sex marriages from other states to be recognized in Ohio.

I was worried after taking the last three days off to do Reasonfest that there would be tons to catch up on, but it looks like the news slowed down a bit for me.  Thanks, news! But then I was worried I wouldn’t have much to write about today.  Fortunately, I came upon this little [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: HOLY CRAP A MOUSE!

I’m back!  Reasonfest 2014 has concluded.  Overall I’m pleased with how it went.  All the presenters were very good.  Scott Clifton’s debut on the atheist circuit exceeded my every expectation.  Clifton has every reason to be a Prima donna but is extremely down to earth and nice. I also slept all through the night last [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: you guys.

Hey all.  Just wanted to say thanks for bearing with me during hell week for Reasonfest.  Things kick off this evening and I’ll be scrambling all day today and tomorrow.  I’ll be back to doing 6-8 posts a day on Monday. You guys are the coolest.  <3 [Read more…]

This message must have been real important. Let me help spread it.

When my friend Edwin Kagin died I handled it in the way I have for years: I sat down and I wrote.  It’s my catharsis.  I recounted what an admirable man Edwin Kagin was as that was what I could think about in the wake of his death. I didn’t check the comments for day [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: better living through science.

The last three weeks I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping.  I’ve been tired, just hardly able to sleep.  This is strange for me because I am a god damn all-star when it comes to sleeping.  Seriously, ask Michaelyn because it drives her crazy.  My head hits the pillow and five minutes later I’m sleeping [Read More…]

Live-blogging tabling.

I can’t really read the news or write while I’m here because I’m spending time interacting with people.  But I’ll post some highlights to keep me from being bored. There’s a Christian group tabling right beside us.  The most challenging part of today is not interjecting myself into all their conversations. Tabling is like fishing: [Read More…]

Hemant is more optimistic about the reaction to Christian law-breakers than I.

First: thanks everybody for being so patient with light and short content this week.  It’s hell week for Reasonfest so…yeah.  😛 Second: Hemant wrote a post today about Carroll County (Maryland) Commissioner Robin Bartlett Frazier.  You see,  they’ve been opening their board meetings with sectarian prayers to Jesus.  Just last week the AHA won a suit [Read More…]

New laws in Saudi Arabia designate all atheists as terrorists.

So I guess grad school in Saudi Arabia is out of the question… The interior ministry regulations include other sweeping provisions that authorities can use to criminalize virtually any expression or association critical of the government and its understanding of Islam. These “terrorism” provisions include the following: Article 1: “Calling for atheist thought in any [Read More…]
