Atheist Bible?

In general, I find atheists need a unifying tome about as much as men need nipples. I'm of the opinion that to properly educate yourself on morality, ethics and philosophy, you need more than what a single book can provide; you need a lifetime of education, thought and what some would call "soul searching"; the act of reflecting on one's actions. Our general dislike of sacred tomes hasn't bothered Professor ...

Jonathan Haidt on the “Moral Matrix”

Makes you think, doesn't it? I think one of the advantages of atheism is we share so many different values. There really is a huge diversity of political beliefs, and it's my hope we can continue to maintain an open mind. Of course, I disagree with him strongly on the Dalai Lama's moral humility, but that's a discussion for another time. ...

Could this go anywhere?

A fan sent me a link to a website called talkatheist.org and it seems that so far, few people have chosen to use this clever little service. The whole point of the website is to provide a chat room for anyone interested in atheism, but the problem is that these guys are using IRC, a dying communication medium that's going the way of the dodo. I think they would be better off making it a twitter or facebook ...

Kirk Cameron is hilarious

  Look at him: it's adorable the way he tries in vain to formulate a thought that wasn't spoon fed to him by his guru, the mindless Ray Comfort. Every time I see him I can't help but relive all the terrible years I had to spend looking at his goofy mug on TV. We're fortunate his limited acting skills never allowed him to evolve beyond B-Budget Christian films (including the "Left Behind" series), other ...

Everyone needs to calm the fuck down part 2

I've been absent from the Internet for a few days, so it caught me a little by surprise to find out TGA has become a part of the huge conversation regarding atheism and sexism in general happening in our quaint little community. So rather than it be a reference to the swearing (which I can safely say is always abundant), the topic everyone is going ape-shit over is whether or not sexism is rampant in the at ...

Billy Ray Cyrus is an idiot

I don't expect celebrities to be beacons of rational and coherent thought, especially when their claim to fame is a terrible song and an equally terrible TV show. Billy Ray Cyrus was recently interviewed by GQ, and he claims Hollywood has destroyed his perfect family life. He believes the root of all of this evil has something to do with a freeway sign they would pass by on their way to the Hannah Montana s ...

South Dakota wants to make killing abortions doctors legal

I wish this was satire, or some kind of sick joke, but unfortunately, a bill under consideration in South Dakota is changing the definition of justifiable homicide to include: Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person while resisting any attempt to murder such person, or to harm the unborn child of such person in a manner and to a degree likely to result in the death of the unborn child... That's r ...

Internet issues

Hey guys, just a quick post here to let you know we've been having Internet issues for the past day and a half, hence less love than you're normally accustomed to.

We're currently #2 in votes, so if you've got a few seconds, come vote for us! ...

Vote TGA for Best Atheist Podcast

I'd like to thank everyone who submitted The Good Atheist Podcast on About.com, and I'm happy to report we've made it to the top 5. It's now time to vote! I don't have to tell you competition is fierce, but considering it's my birth-month (I slowly celebrate the whole month until the culmination: February 28th), I can't imagine a better present than winning this thing. We've been working hard to continually ...

Reminder: Nominate TGA for best podcast

If you haven't heard yet, About.com's Austin Cline is holding nominations for a number of atheist related categories, and the one I've set my eyes on is the Best Atheist Podcast one. So if you're of the opinion we deserve some recognition (we're still one of the best kept secrets in atheist circles), then please nominate us. It'll go a long way to spreading the word about TGA! ...
