Rebecca Watson thinks r/atheism reddit full of misogynists

Here's something I've learned in all my years of blogging: if you look for something hard enough, you'll find it. In my case, it's examples of religious stupidity that I zero in on. I realize that cheap laughs and easy jokes may not give the complete picture of a particular religion (usually Christianity or Islam), but if I was trying to be fair I wouldn't be having any fun. I want you to keep this in mind, ...

Cindy Jacobs “mobilizing” thousands of morons to do nothing

Mobilizing 10,000 people to pray! Wow, how amazing. Think of all the good you can do by sitting in a dark room and talking to yourself all day. So, if you want God to interfere with human affairs (and apparently throw this whole "free will" idea out the window when it's inconvenient), you just need to stop eating for several days, followed by imperceptibly mumbling to yourself. Sounds good to me! "Imagine w ...

If TV existed in Biblical Times

I love the way this video is put together: it combines sharp visuals with brilliant satire. Be sure to read some of the captions at the bottom. My favorite so far is "Paper Just a Fad says Scribe." Classic. Spread the word about this video! ...

Thanks for giving these morons a voice, Internet

Oh Twitter, sometimes you sap away the only remaining hope I have for humanity. The unfiltered garbage that's excreted out of the mouths of cretins is enough to drive you mad. Eventually, you reach a threshold of tolerance where it all sounds eerily similar to bees buzzing around. Once in a while, you find a few hot topics that really make our species truly shine, in both verbosity and compassion that one i ...

Good show, guys…

It's terrible shows like this that give me hope that not every child is being indoctrinated particularly well. The damage done by these kinds of yahoos seems relatively easy to fix, especially since these clowns can't manage to keep a bunch of kids interested in their shtick for more than 15 seconds. If you're trying to indoctrinate children in your cult, might I suggest the trying the following: #1: Be pre ...

Fox News kicks Dan Barker off show for being a meany pants

Things I find hilaro-tragic about this video: 1. Bolling assuming that the group, which was founded out of state, is intent on forcing their agenda on Texans, despite the fact that he's told several times that the group responded to complaints from residents of the town. 2. No one on the program seems to understand the difference between free speech and government sanctioned religion. 3. Fox News crew makin ...

Christopher Hitchens, we will miss you

We all knew it was coming, but somehow we had managed to ignore the cruelty of reality for a little while. For a moment there, it almost seemed as though Hitch had managed to defeat his cancer. Unfortunately, life is a cruel bitch that kills your heroes prematurely (it's true that Jack Daniels and Phillip Morris had done most of the damage, but still). Now, the world is a little duller, a little dumber, and ...

Down with the Flu

Hi Gang, You may have noticed that the show hasn't gone up this week (or last one for that matter). I'm actually trying to fight the flu, which has been travelling from host to host only to find its latest victim: yours truly. I'll be spending the time this week finishing up my taxes, but I promise to do at least 2 more shows before the Christmas Holiday, if nothing else to ensure that none of you die of lo ...

The origins of Christmas

The Thinking Atheist is doing their part in helping you fire back at annoying Christians trying to make it seem as though they invented people celebrating the Winter Solstice. Normally, I don't really care to correct them, but it seems that this whole "War on Christmas" just keeps getting more annoying. There is a point where you have to send them back to schools with a few facts. ...
