Careful, you might bring down atheism!

In the past, I've been critical of a number of atheists who have discouraged me from participating and expanding a broader secular movement. These 'naysayers' now have a name, according to Austin Cline. These are 'Uncle Tom Atheists', and they are, apparently, a big problem. I'd like to start by pointing out how terribly insulting that phrase is. I'm not black, but I have many friends who are, and this moni ...

The Taliban of atheism

From Scrippsnews: In my younger and more vulnerable years I once got into a debate with a fundamentalist Christian about the morality of capital punishment. Her view was that the Bible sanctioned the death penalty, and as far as she was concerned that was the end of the matter. What struck me most about her attitude toward the subject was her contempt for anyone who might see the question differently. Recen ...

CNN attempts to debate atheism

I saw this video, and was unaware of CNN's attempt to discuss whether or not atheists were being discriminated against. Nevermind the fact that as a news organization; they are far more interested in making money from advertisers than in displaying any journalistic muscle, this so called 'panel' was populated entirely by individuals who were themselves believers. You might as well have a panel of southerner ...

Is atheism a religion?

As a writer, the appeal of discussing atheism stems largely from the fact that although its definition may be simple, the philosophies surrounding it are not. There are so many different responses to atheism that some have begun to call it a religion. But is this true? Is atheism a religion, and if not, does it emulate any of the elements of it? As I will show in this article, the answer to that question no ...

This particular video is a 30 minute video lecture by Richard Dawkins recorded in April 2002: The session was titled 'The Design of Life', and the TED audience was probably expecting remarks about evolution's role in our history from biologist Ri ...

A Trip Through Time

Imagine for a moment that you had inadvertently recorded an audio diary of your life on a weekly basis, for almost a full decade. How would you react if you were suddenly forced to confront every detail of it? This is my life now, at least for the next few months as I finish uploading all the old podcasts to youtube. I've finally posted 100 episodes as of this article, as part of my effort to remaster the b ...

The Long Post

If you're reading this post, it means that you didn't foolishly abandon the beautiful invention known as Rich Site Summary like the rest of us. Back in the day, TGA had a very decent following that preferred the writing to than the podcast, despite my best attempts to undermine the English language. We called these people "freaks. They numbered perhaps only 1/6th of the listening audience, but they were jus ...

Buy Bible Stories

The Wait is Finally Over GET IT NOW ON AMAZON! Have you always wanted to read the Bible, but couldn’t get past the first few pages? You aren’t the only one! Most people have never been able to read the "Holy Book”, which is why its disturbing content is generally unknown to the public. Two years ago, I set out to change this. Like Isaac Asimov once said, “The Bible, properly read, is the most potent force f ...

Skeptic-Al web-comic coming soon

I've been a busy boy. After 'retiring' from the atheism scene (yeah, like it's that fucking easy, genius), I set off to try a variety of projects that I felt could potentially pay the bills. When you're an entertainer, you try to cast a bit of a wide net; there's no way to know which project will take off, so it's best to have a few things going on. One of those projects was originally for the Richard Dawki ...
