Hug an Atheist preview is out

Fans of the podcast will remember that last September, I interviewed young filmmaker Sylvia Broeckx (pronounced "Brooks") about an upcoming movie she was trying to fund through Indiegogo. I'm happy to report that not only did she receive her funding, but it appears she's released a teaser video for her upcoming production. Judging by the piece, I think we're in for a touching, inspirational film which shoul ...

Hard-Cores to be moved to JacobFortin.com

Hi Gang, Well, since announcing my eventual semi-retirement from atheism, a number of hard-cores have expressed their desire to continue to support my ventures outside of the scene. Not only are they excited by Bible Stories, they are also looking forward to the myriad of other projects I'll be working on, which includes a comic book, a TV pilot, and a bunch of other projects that are top secret (for now). ...

The New Good Atheists auditions have begun

I mentioned a few weeks ago I was playing with the idea of finding the next generation of 'Good Atheists', and I'm happy to report that in a few days, I'll be experimenting with some of them and testing out your reactions. Now, I will still be co-hosting while these rookies put a few podcasting miles under their belts, and you can be sure I will be applying a rigorous standard of quality on all of them. The ...

The New Good Atheists?

By now, most of you have probably heard I'll be hanging up the podcasting gloves to focus on other things: mainly to get my financial life in order. Since the news broke out, responses have been mixed. Some are mad I've chosen to abandon my post, and complaining the donation amounts were too little to survive was tantamount to whining. Others agreed with the decision, pointing out they want me to be able to ...

For the last time, Atheism is not a religion

Religious people just don't get it, do they? They think when we talk about the belief in God we are in fact acknowledging 'his' existence, and that our own struggle against the brutalizing influence of religion is itself a kind of faith. It's enough to make your head want to burst. Especially frustrating are these kind of lazy atheist hit pieces; brave articles that refuse to allow a comment section out of ...

For Canada’s “Office of Religious Freedom”, non-believers don’t matter

As much as we Canadians make fun of Americans (yes, I am a Canuck, people), the truth is that our own country isn't really that much better when it comes to religious interference in government. With the Conservative party in power, it seems as though they are intent on copying the American model: in other words, they wish to turn this country into a mini-sectarian state in order to please their highly reli ...

String of atheism signs vandalized, no real action taken by officials

I know many of you out there think making holiday displays and fighting to have them displayed is a waste of time, but with the recent strings of vandalism against our property, not to mention the ridiculous reasons given by city officials for rejecting these banners helps highlight the fact that atheists are still a vilified and abused minority. This echos a report by the International Humanist and Ethical ...

I don’t think you’re done reading, pal

Hey look, it's an atheist who converted to religion. All it took for him was: a) To read one book about atheism b) To think that one book would give him the needed skepticism to reject the joke that is C.S. Lewis' "Mere Christianity" c) To stop thinking critically immediately afterwards This guy was seduced by the morality argument? What, the 'feelings' you had couldn't be explained WITHOUT referring to a s ...

Answers in Genesis writes hilarious letter to atheists

For some odd reason, I love the idea that there are religious believers out there who try to convert atheists back to religion. I can't imagine a more pointless exercise. They really think there must be some magical argument to 'win us' back to the fold. They can't understand our decision not to believe in God is the result of years of slow and gradual change, ultimately leading to the conclusion that the p ...
