The Good Atheist 040

As some of you might recall, The Good Atheist is now twice a week, and we humbly present to you our new Bonus Show. We’ll be keeping this one free for a month or two, and then it’s behind the curtain, with the hopes fans will appreciate the extra content enough to become patrons. I’ll be revealing how to do this at the end of March. In the meantime, enjoy the show!

    There was once a survey conducted on masturbation where 95% of people who responded said they “masturbated regularly,” and the 5% were “lying.”

    A question on this new patronage scheme for you guys since I can’t post at FL without creating the account and I enjoy both websites. Any chance of making a “bundle” deal so one can get all content on The Good Atheist and Fightlinker for, say $30? I generally stay away from premium content websites but if there was some extra incentive to sign up to both I’d consider it.

    Cheers from one of the most chruch-crazy countries in the world, Poland.

    actually, it is automatically a bundle wen you become a patron. You get access to all our extra content, TGA included. Just remember that 20 is the minimum we ask from patrons,

    Your argument is so Ray Comfort: “if you ever lied, you are a liar”.

    You seem to claim that if you ever masturbated, you are a masturbator…

    And apparently the premium content isn’t better, just more of the same?
    Just wondering.

    Your argument is so Ray Comfort: “if you ever lied, you are a liar”.

    You seem to claim that if you ever masturbated, you are a masturbator in perpetuity. If that is your argument I know of at least one complete wanker.

    Hey, guys, just listened to this bonus ep on my iPod last night. Good show, I just wanted to offer a bit of correction about Concealed Carry, where I think you went off the rails a bit. I should note before going further that I’m a political independent that leans Left, and I generally vote for Democrats. But I also have a Texas CHL and don’t take lightly the responsibility that entails. I would never draw my weapon to “break up a fight”, I would leave the area. I am only legally justified in drawing my weapon if I believe (and can convince a jury) that I was in fear of immanent death or grievous bodily injury from another party. CHLs are schooled to avoid escalating situations whenever possible, and are some of the best behaved people, least likely to flip you off in traffic, etc. Statistically, they are among our most law abiding citizens, even cleaner than the average cop.

    I carry everywhere permitted by law because I accept responsibility for my own self-defense, because I know police can’t be everywhere at once. I don’t carry because I’m looking to pick a fight any more than I wear seatbelts in my car hoping to get into a wreck. I hope I never have to really depend on my seatbelt to save my life just like I hope I never have to draw my concealed weapon, but it’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    Some Lefty atheists care about the basic human self-defense rights recognized by the 2nd Amendment just as much as redneck right-wing bible thumpers.

    Please visit http://www.liberalswithguns.com and start to educate yourself a little further. Your position on concealed carry is based on emotion and projection, not reason.

    Otherwise, keep up the good work w/ the podcast.
