Don’t forget your questions

Hey guys, I still don't have enough mailbag questions to fill an entire show. If I can't get a few more, I'll have to wait until next week for the Bonus Show. If you want a question answered, just put it in the comments! Don't forget for you non-members: if you ask a question, the bonus show is free for you! **NOTE** Ok, I think we have enough. I'll record and post up the bonus show tomorrow afternoon. Sorr ...

Happy Blasphemy Day

The Center for Inquiry has decreed that the 30th of September is now Blasphemy Day International to commemorate those Danish cartoons that set the Muslim world on fire.  Which means, of course, that it will be celebrated by dozens of people worldwide... OK, now I'm being a little cruel, but I'm not entirely sure this holiday will catch on. It's cool and all that it falls on my Dad's birthday, especially con ...

Glenn Beck blames gang violence on atheism, and Obama

Here Glenn decides random and isolated acts of violence have, as their root cause, a secular leaning. In the video a young man is tragically beaten and killed. In Beck's eyes, he sees too few tears in the eyes of witnesses, something he blames on the fact young people are less religious than they used to be. Even Beck admits he has no idea what's happening in this video, but it certainly doesn't stop him fr ...

I am stupid…

I just realized the other day that I should be putting some of my other talents to good use here on the site. When I was a kid I used to draw like a maniac, usually at the cost of my grades. I was therefore left with a poor education but a decent skill to scribble. Why I haven't used it more on the site is a mystery to me. I guess I was afraid that since my art style changes so often, it might be difficult ...

What a cool idea!

Remember Ben Stein's terrible movie "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed"? We reviewed it a while back, go listen to it here. If you haven't seen it, I might suggest that you take a look at this video. It's a cool idea to include a subtitle track so that people who watch it can know exactly what's going on. Too bad the guy's site is so hard to navigate, though. I couldn't even find a link to the file. He gets ...

Mailbag!

Since Ryan is still in Tennessee and Jeff is currently working his 9-5 job, I thought it might be fun if I made this week's bonus show a Mailbag episode. That means anyone who wants to ask a question can do so right here in the comments. Now, in case you aren't a member and dislike the idea of asking a question without the ability to listen to the answer (since the bonus podcast is for patrons only), the de ...

Jehovah’s Witnesses accused of smuggling children to avoid transfusions

Did you ever wonder why Jehovah's Witnesses can't aceept blood transfusions? Turns out that in 1945, the Chuch basically decided a new interpretation of the Bible was needed, based on their belief that blood is reserved for the atonement of sin only (I guess they don't know it carries oxygen and fuel to cells), and it is therefore a deadly sin to accept a transfusion, even if it saves your life. You have to ...

The Story of Creation

I just ran across this site, The Thinking Atheist, and I have to admit I'm loving their videos so far. Well produced, funny, and relevant. I'm looking forward to seeing more from these guys! ...
