The Lord is Not on Trial Here

The Lord is Not on Trial Here Today from BillMoyers.com on Vimeo. An important story about a real american atheist hero, Vashti McCollum, without whom the separation of church and state would not be what it is today. The word brave is often overused, but I can't imagine a better use of the word when referring to this woman and her family. This is a MUST SEE for every visitor of the site. No foolin'! (via At ...

You may already own a copy of “The Essentials DVD”

Remember a few months ago when TGA launched its Bible StoriesĀ Kickstarter campaign (well, eventually it was Indiegogo, but those were heady times)? Well, one of the incentives to sign up for the more expensive packages (100$ and up) included a free copy of "The Essentials DVD". Now, I've been slowly emailing everyone on that list, but just in case I've missed you, be sure to send me an email so I can send y ...

How to annoy your coworkers, Jesus style

You know what I love? I love it when I'm at the office, and someone vaguely familiar with their religion decides that it's their duty to try and convert me to whatever bullshit they believe in at the time. Yes, there's nothing in this world I love more than watching these people squirm when you start asking them questions their priest never really prepared them for. What's the deal with Jesus and his intens ...

Don’t use Pro-Lifers as surrogate mothers, people!

Let me give you a nightmare scenario: because of medical complications, you and your spouse decide to employ a surrogate mother to bring your baby to term. After the massive contract fees and the cost of in vitro fertilization, the pregnancy takes and everything is hunky-dory. For a while. Then, in the 2nd trimester, an ultrasound reveals the baby is having serious development problems. The doctor concludes ...

‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ should return…this time for religion

I've always found America's obsession with the military disturbing. First and foremost, it is heavily populated by the poorest, least educated members of society who often have little choice in joining if they hope to have an education, or even a future outside of Walmart. You always hear on TV how much respect they should be given, due to their sacrifice in 'protecting freedom'. In reality, the military is ...

This pretty much sums up this Pope nonsense

Here's a video of Benedict XVI's appointment, except the audio has been replaced with a bunch of hilarious nonsense; something all of these clowns in ridiculous outfits should be well versed in. Just look at all the ridiculous wealth on display here. Kind makes you want to vomit in your mouth a little, doesn't it? ...

So close, yet so far away

Mother Nature can be a cruel, nasty bitch. Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, asteroids; honestly, I could spend the whole day listing the many ways humans can be crushed, burned, drowned, blown away, or fall to their deaths. When these kinds of senseless tragedies occur (well, senseless to us as natural forces interact), people who still cling to Bronze Age beliefs can often find themse ...

Neil deGrasse Tyson on Intelligent Design

Here's an old presentation from Neil some of you may not have seen yet. In the talk, Neil discusses the history of Intelligent Design, and why it still persists in society. While I've always liked Neil, and I'm fascinated by his idea that we should carefully study why some scientists are religious, I think at the end of the day, the answer will be quite dull and not very informative: mainly that when you're ...

Hurricane Sandy relief to violate Establishment Clause

It's no small irony that when Republicans talk about smaller government, this same crippled beast seems to have no problems handing gobs of cash to institutions they have no business helping. Take the recent appropriation of 60 billion dollars for Hurricane Sandy. The Republican controlled House has voted to allow some of the money to be used to rebuild houses of worship, a clear violation of the Establishm ...

Who wants to fund a monument to ignorance?

Remember last year when I put up Bible StoriesĀ on Kickstarter? I remember being nervous that I would have to live down the embarrassment of failing to attract enough potential buyers for the book. That's why I tried to come up with a conservative estimate of how many people would buy it. Luckily, it ended up being a huge success (after an initial moment of sheer panic when we moved the campaign to Indiegogo ...
