Facebook kills “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day” page

You can't expect a private corporation to care about something as important as free speech, but it's still a disappointment to hear the childish cries of outraged Muslims all over the world was enough for Facebook to kill the "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day" page from the "interwebs". It's equally ironic/tragic the woman responsible for the whole thing also retracted and issued a sincere apology (even going so ...

Oh, Jacob where art thou?

Some of you might be wondering why I haven't been keeping the site as up to date as I normally do. Unfortunately, due to a serious money shortfall, I've had to go back to work for a while, and this means I can't devote as much time to the site as I would like. Also quite problematic is the fact podcasts are extremely hard to produce, and so for the next little while things might be a bit spotty. I'll try my ...

The Taliban is fucking scary

Why do I hate religion? Because it's the easiest thing in the world to convince poor, uneducated young men that killing yourself for your imaginary friend is a great idea! What other kind of fervent, uncritical ideology allows such obedient faith zombies to flourish? ...

Christian teachers use holy water on atheist colleague

You'd figure schools would be the place where atheists would be the 'safest' ... after all, these places are supposed to be bastions of knowledge and education. But lately it just hasn't been that way. From Texas re-writing its textbooks to students harassing atheist teachers, there's a full on movement a brewin' to make schools a battlefield between belief and non-belief. Sometimes these battles are distur ...

The MMR Vaccine / Autism story from start to finish

We've covered a lot of the MMR vaccine / autism controversy on the Good Atheist, but I don't think it's ever been laid out from start to finish in as concise a format as in this comic from Darryl Cunningham. From major conflicts of interest to falsifying data to the unethical treatment of children (which included colonoscopies and lumbar punctures amongst other unnecessarily shitty tests), there's 15 pages ...

This will bring a tear to your eyes

Maybe I'm just a big softy, but when I saw this video posted on Pharyngula the other day, it brought a little tear to my eye. Anyone who still holds on to the idea we are the only species capable of such a complex range of emotion has probably never really bothered to research our ape cousins. Just ask Jane Goodall (my dream grandmother) what the range of ape emotions are: she claims they are exactly the sa ...

Remember the Sabbath, or God will be angry!

Another great video by the Thinking Atheist. It reminds me of the scene in Religulous when Bill Maher talks to a Jewish entrepreneur who develops all kinds of ludicrous technology intended to trick God into thinking his "people" are observing the Sabbath. Hey morons, if your petty deity really wants you to avoid even striking a match on this day of rest, do you really think a digital timer turned on the day ...

Jesus is magical

Imagine the kind of shit you could have pulled back a few centuries ago if you knew a couple cheap magic tricks? Make a couple loaves and fishes appear "out of nowhere" and all of a sudden BAM, you're their new God! Yes folks, as a species we really are that gullible and stupid, a fact which never ceases to depress me. ...

Malawi gay couple faces harsh jail sentence for getting engaged

I'm still amazed any rational, intelligent person can doubt as to whether or not religion still causes all sorts of harm in this world. I think the problem is few people actually bother to find out what is going on in parts of the world where religious fundamentalism is still prominent. There are countries around the world where the toxic effects of religion are being felt by innocent men and women. The lat ...

Jesus Christ Bail Bonds

I hate to admit it, but this guy's sales pitch is AWESOME. Even now I can't get his stupid little song out of my head. I'm sure by the end of today, most of you will hate me for having put up this video... ...
