This man is a genius!

I see more and more of these sorts of videos on YouTube, mostly because many  very stupid people are upset that atheists are winning the God debate. So long as I can keep laughing at them, I'll continue to post them up. Best moment in this video is when he argues God is merely invisible, like air. Move over Thomas Aquinas; the world's greatest theologian is on the loose! ...

New look means new outlook

Welcome to The New Good Atheist everyone. As you can see, we've decided to pimp out the site a little bit more. With the new look also comes a bunch of new features we'll be developing in the future. One of the most important things we've decided to do was commit more to TGA in general. That means more posting, more often.

Exchange student nightmare

Think about how paralyzing it must be to go to another country as an exchange student only to learn your host's parents are crazy fundamentalists trying to convert you. That's what this kid had to live through, and despite the annoyance, he seemed more upset at the fact he had to escape their clutches and leave them feeling hurt. One part in particular was telling about the true motivations of some people: ...

In fact, if you feel it's a topic ...

Britain busy with debaptisms

Last week, the Nation Secular Society in England was busy debaptising over 1500 people.

I am not a rebel. Although I like to think I am controversial, in reality if push came to shove, I would probably retreat to the safety of conformity rather than suffer an ignoble fate. It's why I find the following story so striking: It's an article in the Saudi Gazette about all girl coffee shops, which is where today's young Saudi girls are going to let loose, have fun, and enjoy life.

More religious tragedy

Your average, moderately religious person is deathly afraid of cults. It's not the brainwashing they are afraid of, but rather the type of brainwashing that is used. After all, the most distinguishing characteristics of cults is that they usually take a very literal approach to their religion, and this uncomfortable reality often reminds the faithful there is a dark side to their own belief system.

Hitchens on Prohibition

Classic Hitchens, walking out to an interview with a glass of scotch. The man loves his alcohol! The only person on the show who looks lost here is Mos Def, who tries in vain not to look totally useless. (via atheistmedia.com) ...
