Buy Rock Music, Help Atheism

Buy Rock Music, Help Atheism January 11, 2012

Todd Stiefel, the man behind the Stiefel Freethought Foundation, is the philanthropist who provided the money for my position with the Secular Student Alliance.  He’s a great guy and apparently a musician (I wonder if he knows about my musical background…perhaps we can jam sometime).

His band, Words Such As Burn, which is playing at Rock Beyond Belief, has just released a new album Flow.  The album apparently has an atheistic theme.

Lead singer Bruce Harris describes the humanist message in Flow, saying:

Flow is about what religion costs us, believers and unbelievers alike, in terms of lost love and wasted friendships. Most atheists I know have experienced the familiar story; Maybe a friend or relative who learns about our lack of faith, who then begins to treat us differently.”

100% of the proceeds from the title track and over half the proceeds from the album as a whole will be donated to the SSA!  You can purchase the album off Amazon and you can acquire the .mp3 of Flow over at iTunes.

Personally, I’m not sure if I’m going to buy the album.  With tracks like Fallacy One: Argument from Ignorance this CD may offend religious people.  And really, how important is reality if it comes at the cost of hurting someone’s feelings by telling people their arguments suck?

On second thought, we should all purchase a hundred copies so I can eventually belt that one out at karaoke.
