A Note about the future

Since announcing that I will no longer be recording podcasts in the near future, a number of fans have asked if TGA will be shut down or closed. While I don't plan on recording NEW podcasts, I would like to take some time to re-master my old work, piece together my favorite posts over the years, and find bloopers and gems that never made it to the shows. The whole reason I started the podcast in the first p ...

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 ...

An atheist life: Jeff’s story

I've been getting a lot of emails with people wanting to share their stories of atheism. I want to make sure every single one of them gets enough time and exposure for people to really sink their teeth into. I am amazed at just how open, trusting, and honest all of you have been while telling us about your lives. It is this kind of attitude and behavior that makes me truly believe human beings look to conne ...

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.

For starters, a large number of Orthodox denominations were a direct response to the assimilation of Jews in society near the end of the 19th century. Believing integration with society was leading to impiety, Orthodox Jews adopted a rather extreme position when it comes to the out ...

The ironic title demonstrates the true stupidity at work here. Check out these awesome excerpts: Try to think of any explosion that has produced order. Does a terrorist bomb create harmony?

Nice going, New Zealand!

Well, finally a bit of good news this week. It seems as though a New Zealand Primary school is no longer offering Bible studies, as no one is actually interested in reading the damn thing. Hey, I speak from experience here: I am, after all, writing a book on the Bible, and trust me when I say it's often a big snooze fest. It's certainly not the kind of material I would recommend to kids (how can you even te ...
