Speaking FRANK-ly About Jesus 4: Seven More of Nineteen Reasons to Conclude that Nazareth is Geographical Fiction Frank Zindler’s blog dedicated to the thesis that Jesus of Nazareth never existed. I hope that by now my readers are placing their orders for René Salm’s new block-buster, NazarethGate: Quack Archeology, Holy Hoaxes, and the Invented Town of Jesus. It’s likely to be the most important book ever published by American Atheist Press. In my previous posting, I presented a dozen reasons… Read more

  A 2016 CE Mini-Manifesto? Ed Buckner I’ve had a variety of online discussions of late that make it clear to me that many, many Americans are still confused or worse about what people like me mean when we say we’re atheists or that we think they’re mistaken about Christmas, this being a “Christian nation” or other matters. Some of this confusion seems to me to be pernicious and intentional, based on a dogged determination to define us, however incorrectly,… Read more

A Review of David Silverman’s Fighting God: An Atheist Manifesto for a Religious World Thomas Dunne Books, 2015 By Ed Buckner Another book on atheism? Why, for god’s sake [so to speak]? I’ve been an atheist for many years. I’ve read literally hundreds of books, essays, blog posts, and chapters about atheism and closely related subjects. I’m proud of my extensive library on the subject, a library that includes some superb books on atheism and skepticism of religious claims, often… Read more

I’m happy to announce the relaunch of the NoGodBlog which has been off line due to internet access issues from my rural home base.  The problem has been resolved and to get this rolling, I’m starting with my belated comments on the Oregon militia occupation situation.  By now, pretty much everybody who pays attention to the news in any capacity is aware that a federal wildlife center in Oregon has been taken over by an anti-government militia group. (via Bing… Read more

The little town of Orange, Texas is at the center of a saga that is starting to get the attention of media outlets throughout the country. At the heart of the matter is the Christian determination to paint an equal access situation as yet another false Christian persecution scenario — only this time, there are some indications that the situation is becoming dangerous. The short version of the story is that the town of Orange put up a nativity display… Read more

In a fine example of religious tolerance, a civic-minded atheist group, Orange County Atheists of Orange County, Texas, had their Adopt-A-Highway signs vandalized for the second time. Here is a photo history (with thanks to Joshua Hammers for providing the photos). A sign in its intact state: After the first vandalism incident: After the second vandalism incident: This is yet another reminder that it is not enough for the Christian majority to enjoy and demand privileged status, benefits, and advantages … Read more

Dear presidential candidates: If you have to lie to make your point, your point is meaningless. Several media outlets have reported that Senator Ted Cruz is recycling a debunked story about a Texas teen who was allegedly threatened with jail time for wanting to pray. According to these sources, this same story was recycled from one of Newt Gingrich’s presidential runs. Seriously, how many instance of this sort of alleged discrimination can there be if only one debunked example can… Read more

(via Facebook) By now, there likely isn’t anyone who isn’t familiar with the new and entirely fictional notion of #prayershaming (of course there is a hashtag). As many good writers here at the Patheos Atheist Channel have already pointed out, this is yet another example of the privileged majority appropriating certain words, turns of phrase, and situations to bolster their own delusions of victimhood. For those new to the controversy, some Christians have complained that persons who rightfully point out… Read more
