Bring STIs back

So, as it turns out, sex is pretty popular, and over the past few decades, the use of condoms and other forms of contraceptives has helped decrease STI and pregnancy rates in places that actually bother to teach people real sexual education. Unfortunately for Americans, teaching has made way for preaching, and in this tospy turvy world, facts are the enemy. Enter 1flesh, a website dedicated to preventing co ...

Atheist facing jail time in Indonesia for blasphemy

It's easy to forget the right to express our disbelief is a fairly recent phenomenon. I recognize many fans were angry when I argued Neil DeGrasse Tyson's reaction of the title 'atheist' was an act of intellectual cowardliness, but I voiced my anger precisely because I know how important it is for some to even express their disbelief. The bravery of those willing to stand up for what they believe (or in thi ...

Shit Steve Harvey says

Here's a great compilation of all the ignorant shit that's come out of this man's mouth. Total lack of understanding about atheism? Check. Complete misunderstanding of evolutionary theory? Check. Misogynistic attitude about gender roles? Check. Honestly, if I was a woman I would lose my shit over the advice he's giving out. Ladies, can you shame this man back into the cave he crawled from? ...

Father wants to protect child from reality

When you stop placating people and call them out on their bullshit, you're bound to hurt their feelings. While some of us are comfortable with the idea of letting dumb or dangerous ideas thrive under the banner of "tolerance", there are those brave few who cannot stay silent in the face of the injustices brought on by antiquated religious belief. When Dan Savage recently spoke to students at a High School J ...

Romney attempts to use fear of secularism to gain votes

Oh religious people: you can never be sure if they love religion or secretly despise it. Why else would they resort to calling our free-thought movement "a religion" if not to criticize it? Obviously they recognize the fact that by definition, a religion is a creepy organization intent on pushing through their wacky agenda. While I agree this is a definite aspect of all religion, conflating our lack of beli ...

American Atheist new Billboards advertise in Arabic and Hebrew

Despite living in a (supposedly) secular environment, many Americans are unwilling to identify themselves as Atheists for fear of losing their jobs, their loved ones, or the community bond they have worked so hard to forge. In some extremely isolated communities, potential non-believers may be completely unaware that millions of others don't subscribe to any religion. Often, this knowledge alone can make th ...

A place for us to grieve

Death is hard on those who accept its terminal reality. There's no magical playland in the sky, there's no transference or retention of our thought patterns, and there's no evidence whatsoever that the mind is anything more than the brain. Materialism may not be appealing to the majority of the population, but it's undeniably the only reality so far to manifest itself. These supernatural fairy-tales we've c ...

Another reason to love Daniel Radcliffe

I generally dislike when celebrities try and participate in the political discourse. Sure, I might not mind if someone famous agrees with me on every issue (which has yet to happen), but most of the time, celebrities use the spotlight to demonstrate how little they know about important topics. Such cause célèbre also tend to make them look foolish. Remember Brad and Angelina's attempt to re-invigorate Louis ...

2012 is the end…of TGA, that is

It was a valiant effort, folks. I tried, hard as I might, to make a living spreading the "gospel' of atheism, but in the end, I failed. It took me a little while to realize just how desperate the situation had become, but my failure to secure even the most modest of loans served as a cold reminder that outside of my tiny group of supporters, there is no recognizable value in what I do. Part of me is honestl ...

This idiot makes us all look bad

As some of you may know, I am not an American. I'm your neighbor from the Great White North (who is supposed to spell neighbor with a "u" but doesn't to avoid confusion), which means that my attitude regarding finances and politics tends to be more on the left than your average apple pie baking Good Old Boy. I was born in the province of Quebec, perhaps the most socialist of all the provinces in this countr ...
