Who wants to game?

As many of you know, I'm a bit of a video game fiend, and Ryan and I were talking about including more gaming into The Good Atheist. Unfortunately, this job doesn't pay very well (cough), so we haven't been able to actually do this yet. Well, it dawned on me that maybe some of you fans out there might be gamers too, and you'd be able to help find me a sweet deal on an Xbox 360 (with the PSN Network hacked a ...

Christians have hustle

It's quite unbelievable the amount of "Jesus Junk" there is out there. You've got to admire the way Christians attempt to bilk money out of their fellow believers. They've been at this for a while, so naturally there are few economic avenues they haven't tapped. Here's one that will make you both annoyed and depressed at the same time: Faith Baby! Unique Christian Clothing for babies and toddlers. Our exclu ...

Muslim men know what European women need

Check out these guy's bogus statistics. 90% of European women want a manly man, and what's more manly than a good old fashion beat-down when you get out of line, ladies? According to this sexist piece of shit, his God has honored all women with specific commandments not to beat girls in the face, lest they become ugly. See how awesome Allah is? Also in the beating rulebook: 1) No cursing 2) No more than ten ...

Ricky Gervais on The View

Wow, how can anyone watch these clucking hens? Not only do I regularly want to punch Hasselbeck's face through a wall for all the stupid shit she says, I also find their shrill voices as they talk over one another to be about as soothing as a jackhammer to the balls. ...

William Lane Craig tries to defend Biblical genocides

A few weeks ago I posted a video of a debate between Sam Harris and William Lane Craig. The video made it clear that Craig is no dummy, despite believing in absurdities. He's been particularly busy recently defending the faith, and one of his latest articles tries to justify the genocide and infanticide in the Bible. It's pretty messed up, actually: According to the Pentateuch (the first five books of the O ...

Muslim actress threatened over Playboy pictures

When I think of someone famous taking off their clothing for money and more attention, it's rare that I compare their actions to those of great revolutionaries. Of course, that's probably because I live in a society that values freedom of expression, and where the female form isn't something we like covered up (which is why winter sucks so hard). That's why I had to take a few moments to appreciate the fact ...

Debate: Does God not Exist?

This is for the hardcores who don't mind listening to a 3 hour debate between two Muslim scholars and two atheists (I admit to listening to it in segments). Among the nonbelievers is Richard Carrier, whom I'm still trying to get on the podcast. He's been at this atheism thing for a while now, and tragically too few of you guys are aware of him. Skip past the 2 minute intro song. It's completely unbearable. ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 133

This week Ryan joins me for another Bible Story. Now, since we're covering Moses in this show, we've actually had to break it up into three parts! Part two will be a bonus show, but just to show you that I'm not a total dick, it'll be free for anyone who registers for a free membership. So enjoy Part 1 of the Moses Trilogy! ...

People with faith are blind

Honestly, can we stop pussyfooting around this issue? I feel like I'm the bad guy here every time I have to tell some delusional sheep his beliefs are unsound nonsense. The problem is made even worse when the person in question is actually educated. It would appear no one is immune to dumb ideas. In the case of intelligent people, their own elaborate justifications create a kind of intellectual fog blinding ...

The world sucks because of you

Wow, I never knew non belief was responsible for all the world's problems! That's according to the mayor of Suwannee, a county in Florida that still enforces prohibition (progressive, no?). He thinks the biggest issue facing the world is the lack of belief in God: There are those that don’t acknowledge the existence of God. Their souls are in mortal danger of being lost for eternity. These atheists, agnosti ...
