Happy Birthday to Me

30 years ago today, a young couple in Sherbrooke, Quebec gave birth to a baby with a giant head. That baby grew up thinking all religions were essentially bullshit, and set out to record a totally kick ass podcast to let the world know how he felt. That little boy with a gigantic head was me, and to celebrate the awesomeness of being alive, I'm in Calgary with Carisa Hendrix, who organized a pretty kick ass ...

Philippine Catholics lambaste government for condom distribution

I love condoms. They've been around since ancient times; Egyptians would make theirs out of ceramic (ribbed for her pleasure I hope), while in the 16th century Europeans made theirs out of sheep intestines. Although their primary use is contraceptive, these useful little devices are used for all kinds of purposes, from makeshift waterproof containers to improvised explosive devices. Apparently, having a rub ...

Winnipeg gives millions to evangelical youth group

Ever heard of an organization called "Youth for Christ"? It's an evangelical youth group that seeks to convert people to Jesus, and like any evangelizing organization, it isn't content to sit by and let people live their own lives. Recently, the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba voted to contribute 2.5 million dollars towards a faith-based recreation center. This hasn't sat well with some of the locals who are ups ...

Church arsonists had a book on atheism in their house. So what?

I don't like religion, but like most atheists I know, the thought of burning down churches is rather repugnant. There's no need to create more religious martyrs by making it seem as though their beliefs are under attack. My preferred kind of "assault" is always verbal and intellectual, and I expect any other "Good Atheist" to follow suit. Of course, there's no way to know if every single non-believer out th ...

Larry David on Religion

Oh Larry, if religious people DID keep their insane opinions to themselves, then I'd be out of a job, and the world would be a very different place. I guess instead of making fun of religionists, I would have to get out in the real world and get a 9-5 job...oh the horror! ...

Miss Beverly Hills is a crazy bigot

I guess American beauty queens are under the impression the general public gives a shit about their inane opinions. When Miss California, Carrie Prejean, became a spokesperson for the religious right and their campaign against homosexual marriage, I thought her own stupidity and lack of insight alone would be enough to invalidate her worthless thoughts. No such luck; if anything, her bigoted views have made ...

Annoying idiot thinks religious charities are better than secular ones

It's not uncommon for people to automatically assume faith based organizations are inherently better than secular ones, since volunteers are usually motivated not only by their charity, but also by their piety. This is exactly what this women is trying to argue. Her proof? Well, she often donates clothing to both Goodwill and the Salvation Army, and the latter has a better drop-off. You have to love anecdot ...

You suck, New Zealand

Ok, well, maybe the whole country doesn't suck, but your bus company, NZ Bus sure does. They've just rejected the Atheist Bus Campaign after they received complaints about the ads. Is it surprising that not everyone would be pleased with the simple and direct message "There's probably no God"? It's not as though these buses haven't also featured religious ads that were just as offensive to non-believers. Th ...

Religious nutbags beat adopted child to death

You know, in life, you have to appreciate the little things; a nice sunset, a good meal, and the subtle joys of disciplining your children with large plastic tubes. About 3 years ago, Kevin and Elizabeth Schatz were punishing their adopted daughter for being silly, and because their religion puts heavy emphasis on using physical domination to make children more obedient to God, they decided it was time to r ...
