A Note about the future

Since announcing that I will no longer be recording podcasts in the near future, a number of fans have asked if TGA will be shut down or closed. While I don't plan on recording NEW podcasts, I would like to take some time to re-master my old work, piece together my favorite posts over the years, and find bloopers and gems that never made it to the shows. The whole reason I started the podcast in the first p ...

2012 is the end…of TGA, that is

It was a valiant effort, folks. I tried, hard as I might, to make a living spreading the "gospel' of atheism, but in the end, I failed. It took me a little while to realize just how desperate the situation had become, but my failure to secure even the most modest of loans served as a cold reminder that outside of my tiny group of supporters, there is no recognizable value in what I do. Part of me is honestl ...

Laurence Krauss finds something in nothing

I love Laurence. He's enthusiastic about his work, and his lectures have always been a lot of fun. He's now making the rounds to promote his new book. If anyone is feeling particularly generous, I'd love a copy of Laurence Krauss' new book "A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing". I'm a Kindle whore, by the way. ...

Connecticut gays are going to need lots of Courage

When you think of the word courage, what's the first thing to cross your mind? If you happen to be gay and a Catholic living in Connecticut, that word is about to take on a disturbing new meaning: The Archdiocese of Hartford, Connecticut, this month is beginning a program that ministers to gays and lesbians...The Vatican-endorsed program, called Courage...was started in 1980 by the late Terence Cardinal Coo ...

Unbelievably bad

There are two things that raced through my mind when I listened to this tragedy of a song: #1. Why do so many white people think that to rap effectively, one has to be completely tone deaf? (I'm looking at you, Blondie) #2. You can sell any piece of crap as long as you put a cross on it. #3: Christianity is a creepy death cult. If it hadn't been part of your culture for so long, you'd realize that their rap ...

Cool new science show you need to subscribe to

This show seems like a lot of fun, but judging by all the comments, I think the host should: 1) Lose the facial hair. Dude looks like a rat in that thing. 2) Do something about the lens glare. Perhaps diffuse light might eliminate what is a distracting amount of glare shinning off those spectacles of his. 3) Get nicer clothing. L.L. Bean called, and they want their shitty shirts back, dude. Otherwise everyt ...

Does no one get the point of this song?

This might be a minor grievance, but why do religious folks insist on singing "Imagine" when the song is so clearly anti-religious? I know it's beautiful and melancholic, but surely they realize that the whole point of John Lennon's immortal ballad is a call for peace and love by abandoning ideologies that needlessly divide us. Sure, it's a song of peace, but it lays out the way to get there pretty fucking ...

Ultra-Orthodox Jews just don’t get it

You can always count on Ultra-Orthodox Jews to do something crazy. If they aren't busy showing up at a Holocaust denier conference, they're harassing little girls for dressing "immodestly". All of this bad press has intensified resentment for these fundamentalist weirdos, so in an effort to fight this image problem, they decided to parade around town in uniforms similar to the ones worn by Jews in concentra ...

The End is near!

It's finally upon us, folks! A date that dumb people are convinced will bring on the end of the earth, and everything we care about. Since I'm not too nervous about it, I'll wish you all a Happy New Year instead! Oh, and podcasts and posting goes back to normal starting tomorrow. Now there's a bit of good news. ...
