Google Earth: Atlantis edition

Anytime someone discovers artifacts underwater, you immediately have a bunch of morons asserting the lost city of Atlantis has been found. That's why an unusual looking image in Google Earth was the perfect excuse for the 'true believers' to make that claim again. Luckily, Skeptico has a simple answer to debunk this stupid claim: ...the image is almost certainly an artifact of the mapping process. The under ...

Big announcement March 1st

This weekend was huge for Ryan and I. We started talking about the future of our blogging 'empire' and we've realized there is a great deal of untapped potential in TGA we've largely been ignoring. After all, how the heck can anyone make a living just writing about religion all day, right? Well, it turns out we think we've figured out a way, and this Sunday we'll be recording a special Good Atheist podcast ...

Apparently, I have no passion

It always surprises me how little religious people actually understand atheism. I believe it has something to do with the fact they can't possibly imagine why anyone would choose to reject the notion of God. It must be doubly confusing if your entire life is defined by your faith. It's this fundamental lack of understanding that's behind the latest claim from Jake the Evangelical, who says atheists can't po ...

Bristol Palin thinks abstinence is not realistic

Well, here's something I never thought I would actually write: Bristol Palin actually seems to understand abstinence teaching is "not realistic at all". Yes, those are her words. The unwed mother and daughter of the most embarrassingly stupid and incompetent Vice Presidential nominee ever, Gov.

Time Magazine thinks religion is healthy

I'm tired of magazines continuously talking about how faith is good for your health, or how it makes people feel better. You almost feel like there is a salesman at work, trying to coax you into going to church. I've already written on the notion being religious makes you live longer. So does cutting off your testicles. I don't know about you other fellows, but I'd rather die with a smile on my face. Time i ...

Hard core science!

Here's something that will make you smile. A professor is claiming he can prove the existence of God using what he calls 'hard core science'. Yea, I know you're all impressed with his nomenclature, but there's more. He also claims quantum physics can prove the birth of Jesus, and the resurrection story. It seems like everyone under the sun loves to use quantum mechanics to justify their crackpot ideas. The ...

Scientology is at it again

Scientologists Try to Explain how Psychiatrists caused 9/11 and the Holocaust from Chris Doyle on Vimeo. Scientologists love to attack psychiatry. They believe it is responsible somehow for all of the evils in the world. They deride all prescription drugs, which they view as fundamentally changing someone's personality. This coming from a group whose main intent is to make money, and to mentally enslave peo ...

Ottawa joins growing list of cities that say ‘no’ to atheist bus ads

Looks like our nation's capital is the latest city to say "Hell no" to the atheist bus campaign. Now my first instinct was to assume the reason for the rejection might have been prejudicial, but the transit advertising policy seems to frown on any advertising they deem controversial: Religious advertising which promotes a specific ideology, ethic, point of view, policy or action, which in the opinion of the ...
