Science!

Neil deGrasse Tyson is an extremely cool scientist, and a great orator. Here he is talking about his book and how Apophis is going to slam into the Pacific unless we get off our asses. Rather a good incentive to get behind science funding, wouldn't you say? ...

Sorry about the podcast delay everyone. I'm waiting until Ryan returns to Montreal before making the show. But, I promise you it's going to be a great show filled with laughs and insights. Until then, you just have to wait another week (5 days to be precise)! ...

Does the Religious Right exist?

There's an interesting article here which argues there is, in fact, no Religious Right. The arguments are convincing; it does sound at first glance there has been an over simplification on whether or not a discernable movement is actually present. It would seem illogical to assume there are secret clandestine meetings involving hundreds of pastors and clergymen, all agreeing on the best course of action to ...

Understanding the reasons for religious arguments

I'm beginning to understand intellectually debating religion is a giant waste of time. The blog Atheist Revolution has an interesting article on the types of 'religious trolls' who frequently comment in atheist's sites and the tactics they use. However, there's something important here that is not being mentioned: what exactly is their motivation? It's easy to dismiss trolls as simple troublemakers who want ...

Glad I don’t live here…

I hope most of you guys don't live anywhere close to the border. And by close, I mean less than 100 miles from it, because apparently, you're in a "Constitution-Free Zone". Do me a favor guys. Can you reclaim your country and stop eroding your wonderful founding document please? You're making your neighbors to the north nervous here. ...

China wants to make the Internet pure…

How old is porn? Pretty damn old, actually. There are cave wall paintings depicting people having sex, and my gut tells me they weren't painting them just for posterity. It's not really that hot, but back then, there must have been quite a few Cro-Magnons pleasuring themselves to it. Hey, it's in our nature to like sex. The Gutenberg printing press was used for more than simply printing Bibles. There's also ...

Jacob vs Jesus: battle for God status

I found this website the other day, and thought some of you might be amused by what they are trying to 'prove'. This is a site obviously masquerading as scholarly, and asking pointless questions like: "Did Jesus lie when he claimed he was a God". That this question is even asked seems so ridiculous I don't feel the need to answer it. I shall, therefore, prove to all my loyal readers that I, Jacob Fortin am ...

Religious people better at self control

Here's an interesting article in the New York Times about how religion seems to help people have more self control. Normally, I would try and tear apart these kinds of articles, but in this case I don't necessarily disagree with the findings. Intuitively, it seems right to me; I don't know many people who could fight off the impulse of sex in favor of a relationship with God (I'm talking about Nuns and Cath ...

Happy New Year!

Well, the Holidays are finally over, and after my hangover cures, it's back to work for your favorite Good Atheist! 2008 was a landmark year for me; I quit my job to work full time on blogging (not this site, but rather this one). This year, I plan on submitting my book to various publishing agencies, as the podcast is about to hit 100,000 downloads in a few weeks. It's a pretty big achievement, and I have ...
