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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Doctors refused life saving abortion because “it’s a Catholic country”

Ireland may be quickly de-converting to atheism faster than any other country, but that certainly doesn't mean the fight against superstition and religious indoctrination is over. If anything, the stakes have gotten higher, especially when it comes to certain key issues which don't seem to go away. A young woman by the name of Savita Halappanavar was told she was miscarrying, and after one day in severe pai ...

Shocking: Atheist kids dare to express themselves

If you've never heard of The Blaze (like probably 99% of the population), it's a creation of Glenn Beck and his conservative production company, Mercury Radio Arts (the irony of naming your production company after a metal that makes one insane is probably lost on these people). If the site isn't regularly scaring people into buying gold, it feeds them pseudo information that plays into people's fears and p ...

Who wants to make 8k in gold bullion from this moron?

There's a part of me (a small one, I assure you) that admires the conviction of creationists. They, at least, are honest about the fact that the science of evolution is a pretty huge slap in the face to the notion of a creator God. Not only does it completely invalidate their silly mythology, it also clearly indicates that human beings are a product of descent with modification, and not some special creatio ...
