David Silverman drops the hammer in open letter to Brandeis University.

You’ve probably heard by now, but Brandeis University derped a bit.  A lot.  They are the super-massive black hole at the center of a derp universe.  They invited Ayaan Hirsi Ali to address their 2014 graduates and said they would bestow upon her an honorary degree.  If you don’t know anything about Ali, google her.  The [Read More…]

Gaming it up!

I’ve decided to dedicate more of my time to being a part of the atheist gamer community.  At the very least, this means that a few times a week I’m going to stream some game, hopefully with other atheist gamers.  So if you’re an atheist gamer and want some (talentless) company playing your game, let [Read More…]

Help save LogiCon!

One of my favorite places to speak is in Northwest, Arkansas.  It’s pretty, close to my family, but most of all the secular groups in that region are really strong (probably the strongest that don’t get national attention).  This year they’re running their LogiCon conference again.  I was invited to speak, but it’s the same [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: jumping is for lamers.

This bunny wins the gold medal for innovation, even if it finishes in last place for “jumping over shit”. The trainer’s hands read as “disappointment.”  I’d be elated – my bunny beat the system. [Read more…]

My morals.

I cannot tell you how often I’ve had this conversation with people like Matt Dillahunty and other public atheists who know the bible. Christians love the converted public atheist narrative.  You also only need to be able to play 5-6 chords, not necessarily in different keys, and have maybe an octave and a half singing [Read More…]

Republican aide gives quote on the Affordable Care Act that will make you want to punch things.

So the GOP has a problem: with 7 million people having signed up for the Affordable Care Act in spite of the constant stream of misinformation and mud-slinging the GOP has pointed at it, if Republicans somehow manage to repeal it then they risk taking away health benefits from oodles of people. Simply repealing the [Read More…]

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…]
