Hey guys, I just wanted to say that The Good Atheist podcast has now reached it's 100,000th download! Seeing as how we've only released 36 shows, I consider this a pretty big achievement.

So be sure to stay on me, and let's get another 100,000 this year! ...

Pope welcomes Holocaust denier

It seems as though Pope Benedict XVI just loves controversy. He has reinstated Bishop Richard Williamson, an adamant Holocaust denier. It's become almost comical the level of callousness Benny displays to other religious groups. Williamson is the worst kind of antisemitic jackass, who thinks the gas chambers didn't exist. Where 6 million Jews went, he doesn't speculate. Perhaps he thinks they all staged the ...

Who needs a ShamWow?

I don't watch TV, but every once in a while, when I'm visiting a friend, I'll see the advertising stream on (yeah, I'm aware the show TV program is on, but the only real consistency in programming is the advertising). I admit to seeing the ShamWow guy on for quite a while, and he's an annoying but convincing fellow. If I was just a little bit more gullible and a lot more wealthy, I probably would have bough ...

Bart Simpson is promoting Scientology

When I was a kid, the show everyone was talking about on Monday morning was the Simpsons. There was no doubt in my mind it was my generation's quintessential program, and it practically defined our sense of humor. My friends and I would often quote lines from episodes if the situation was appropriate. Of course, the show isn't what it used to be. The characters are now stale; the writers have lost their fun ...

I love this man

It's one thing to be able to ignite the wonder and curiosity of a child. It's quite another to do it to so many millions of people. The legacy and importance of David Attenborough's work cannot be overstated. He has done more to popularize science than any other man alive. In his 50 years with the BBC, he has voyaged to some of the most remote places on earth. There are many that consider him the most well ...

Montreal pastor gets a taste of justice

Here's a disturbing story for you: a pastor who operated a small church in my hometown of Montreal was arrested for having married and engaged in sexual relations with a 10 year old. The now 57 year old Father Daniel Cormier insisted he was in love with the victim, who rightfully told the court she had no real understanding of what was happening at the time, apart from the physical abuse. He has now been co ...

An Atheist Life: Matthew’s story (kinda)

Matthew wanted to write in to share a story about a close friend of his while also taking the time to write in a question that I'll try to answer next podcast. Hi. First let me say I really enjoy your podcast. I have a friend who is an atheist but has reasonably fundamentalist parents. (fairly unusual here in Australia) He has very strong views against religion like I do but he hasn't come out to his parent ...

Oh noes! It’s the collapse of “Darwinism” in Europe!

Remember this clown? I put up a post a few months ago about Harun Yahya (also known as Adnan Oktar), who's back to making outrageous claims that have no factual basis. The first minute of this video is just his face plastered all over the place. It's obvious he wants to be adored and admired. Too bad he's an idiot. If you can manage to watch the whole thing, then I commend you on your ability to hold food d ...

An atheist life: Krista’s story

Since starting this section of the website, I've many great stories, but none were as intense as Krista's. Her early life exemplified the dangers of belief, especially when combined with mindless superstition, ritual, and dogmatic platitudes. Here is her story: I decided to write this in order to draw attention to the damage that religion can cause to children. At the same time I want to say that my parents ...

Quit your bitchin’ and get back in the kitchen

Here is what God Tube has to say about Feminism. Apparently it involves trying to get women to have as many abortions as possible! Abortions for all I say! Oh, and the only real solutions to the complex problems of society were figured out 500 years ago by John Knox: just take the Bible literally! I guess to some people, aiming for a simpler way of life is the best way to deal with the increasing complexity ...
