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! ...

Religion is for the simple

There's an article that appeared in the Guardian today entitled "Christianity: a faith for the simple", and while I agree with the premise of the article, I feel as though the author got everything precisely wrong on the subject. There was a recent study done in the US polling the religiosity of the country's scientists, which I'm unhappy to report is higher than in most other countries. Of course, the rela ...

Nominate your favorite blog and podcast (Hopefully Me)

About.com has just opened nominations for a bunch of atheist awards, including best Blog, best Podcast, best Twitter, and a slew of other categories. Now, it's pretty obvious I won't be able to win most of these, but I want all of you that listen to the podcast to go and nominate TGA for best podcast and blog (if you think I deserve it, of course). It would make my year if I finally won something. The last ...

Being Arrogant doesn’t mean you’re wrong

I've recently been enjoying Greta Christina's rather elaborate and lengthy blog posts over at Alternet.org, and I've been REALLY enjoying the debate her articles seem to generate in the comment section. Unlike our safe atheist-only environment we're accustomed to, Alternet seems to be populated by an eclectic mix of believers, atheists and agnostics. I was particularly fascinated with some of the comments g ...

Hitch’s little brother is religious

This may surprise you, but it turns out Christopher Hitchens' little brother is religious. So religious in fact he wrote a book called The Rage Against God: How Atheism Led Me to Faith. It's basically a repudiation (heh) of his big bro's book God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, and it argues religion keeps shaky civilizations from collapsing (maybe on Opposite Day) and prevents the horrors of ...

Conservapedia proves Atheists are Fatty Fattersons

Oh Conservapedia, you're the gift that keeps on giving. We recently donated some money to Wikipedia, the reality-based crowd sourced encyclopedia, so I suppose it's only 'fair and balanced' we give its right wing la-la land equivalent some love too in the form of a post. On its front page next to such fine articles as "Is Barack Hussein Obama a president, or is he a dictator?" and "More than a thousand scie ...

S.E. Cupp is annoying

It's funny whenever a non-believer states plainly no evidence exists that would satisfy the "God question", we're accused of being snobs, elitists, mean, or even fundamentalists. Have you noticed no one seems to accuse us of of having the weaker argument or of being wrong. Instead, we're vilified as being "spiritual buzzkills". I've long had doubts about S.E. Cupp's atheism, if only because she seems to lac ...

Getting Harassed: Christian-style

The difference between a bully and a Christian in some of these small towns is they feel vindicated for what they do when they "pray" for the souls of us poor heathens. Listen to the guy at the end: yeah, it must totally be our "militant atheism" that makes people hate us. I mean before Richard Dawkins and Hitchens wrote their respective books, the world was a better place for atheists, and we were treated ...

Christians are horribly confused about women’s rights

The Hitchens/Blair debate has been over for a while, but for some Catholics, the fact Tony was utterly tooled is still a bit of a sore spot. With all those weeks passed since the debate, a few theists are still trying to figure out what Blair could have said to hold his own. During the debate, Hitchens made the point religion has done no favor to women, and only by emancipating them from the slavery of thei ...

About Us

I stand by all the misstatements that I've made. - Dan Quayle Born and raised in the myserious country of Canada, I developed from an early age the ability to talk my way through anything. While this artful skill might otherwise have gone to waste in academia, I chose instead to pursue a career writing and speaking my mind about an issue I felt was important: atheism. After the release of Sam Harris’  book, ...
