This stuff could go to a guy's head…

My lovely girlfriend antagonizes me because she loves me. So, it’s my birthday.  I’m also at a real down point depression-wise (which I’ve been writing about for the last week).  I’m doing better though, so that’s awesome.  Still, no alcohol and no sweets for me.  Control the environment. Instead, I’m drinking in all the very [Read More...]


…AND EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW! It’s time! It’s officially past midnight in Eastern time, so that makes it JT’s birthday!! JT doesn’t like to celebrate his birthday, so I’m using my WWJTD blogging powers to tell you all. You should leave him messages and courage wolf memes in the comments! Yayy! I’m so into spreading [Read More...]

Ben Witherington annoys me.

Patheos makes me feel schizophrenic.  On the one hand they have the Friendly Atheist blog, which is awesome, and makes it look like Patheos pursues only top tier talent.  On the other hand, they have some other blogs that make me wonder if there are any standards in place at all. (Speaking of bloggers at [Read More...]

"Separation of church and state isn't in the Constitution!"

It’s inevitable any time you point out that government endorsement of religion is against the law. It seems to be an instantaneous reaction of those on the right, like screaming when someone shouts “boo!” at them from the shadows: “Show me where the words ‘separation of church and state’ appear in the Constitution!” Let’s sort [Read More...]

More update

Between naps and sleep last night, I got eleven hours of sleep.  I’ve napped a couple times today already and feel like I could sleep forever.  I got through my workout today without throwing up and did the whole thing. I’m not great, but I’m certainly not in the dire shape I was this whole [Read More...]

Dave Mustain: inhuman

Someone who hates LGBT people and plays the guitar said something unfathomably stupid and inhuman. During a recent show in Singapore during Megadeth’s “Th1rt3en World Tour,” Mustaine took to the mic from the stage to discuss his beliefs about some of the recent gun violence in America. “Back in my country, my president,” Mustaine begins [Read More...]

How do they not know?

Cox Health runs the biggest hospitals in Springfield, MO, where I went to college. We always made this joke because we were juvenile and worn out from non-stop studying/socializing.  We weren’t, y’know, responsible for their public image or anything. ::EDIT:: I’ve been informed by one of the locals that this is part of a humor [Read More...]

Meet the contributors!

So, this blog has three official contributors: Christina, Dr. Dave, and Michaelyn.  They’re all badass – that’s why they’re here.  I think the world should know them better. I plan to do a get-to-know-you post for each of them sometime in the near future.  Leave comments here if there’s anything specifically you want me to [Read More...]

The five best atheists

Recently, an article came out naming the author’s picks for the five worst public atheists.  I’d like to counter that with writing about the people who I think are the best public atheists.  These are the ones who I feel should be the public face of atheism, and who we should be the proudest to [Read More...]

Amphetamines in a bottle

Despite finally getting some sleep last night, I’m still having some physiological effects from my present struggles with mental illness. Good things: I’m still able to eat and am not hallucinating.  Both generally happen when I’m struggling.  Take that, malfunctioning brain. Shitty things:  Difficulty sleeping and inability to finish my workouts.  I’ve thrown up during [Read More...]

Of course it makes sense if you use facts!

Along the merry debunking train we go. The hell?  He accuses William of believing in solid fact and yet chastises him for speaking out of ignorance? Also, if you have to disdain facts in order to maintain your beliefs, you’re not demonstrating much esteem for your beliefs.  If the person making this post had facts, [Read More...]

When is it enough?

I asked for Christian arguments to tear apart, thinking doing something so familiar might help me square away my brain.  Unexpectedly, this is the first thing I got. JT- Emailing you in response to your latest post, to give you something to think about, and something I’ve been trying to work through in my own [Read More...]

DrB- Just didn’t want anybody to miss this, “We’re NASA and we know it” You can find me on twitter, @DrDavidBurger I recruit in Kansas City, & [Read more...]
