DVD Launch Party was 100% delicious

Now if you're like 99.999% of listeners, you probably live in some town most of us have never heard of, or you're  thousands of miles away on another continent. That's why most of you missed out on 'The Essentials DVD Release Party', and boy, should you feel like a fool for not coming! My mom - an expert chef of unparalleled ability - prepared an array of delicious food. As the picture above demonstrates, w ...

Kirk Cameron wants to open your mind…to nonsense.

Are you having trouble evangelizing to people who seem to know more about the Bible than you do? Don't worry, child actor Kirk Cameron has the solution for you. He's re-posted an old article from his master entitled "How to Witness to a Closed-Minded Person". As you may have guessed, it's about as compelling as an episode of The View. Here's his advice for how to talk to people who think God and his magical ...

Phase one: Growth

This article first appeared on jacobfortin.com and I've reposted it here so hard-core members who haven't yet had their accounts activated could keep track of the progress of The 300. After only a few days and a half-assed attempt on my part to actually sell the idea of "The 300", I'm happy to say we've already reached almost 30 confirmed members in a little over a week. If we manage to keep this pace, we w ...

I’m in a bit of a pickle right now…

It's hard to believe that after all these years, a mundane technical problem can effectively shut down your operation pretty effectively. My work computer, which has been getting on in age, recently lost the use of its final USB port. This being a laptop, I've been profoundly frustrated by the fact that I have no way to actually interface with my system to allow me to record my shows. In a sense, I am dead ...

“War on Christmas” bullshit ramps up

Oh, so this totally isn't religious indoctrination? Thank God! I'm beginning to think it's totally impossible to do anything secular in America without some religious jackass accusing us of waging a "War on Christmas". This pathetic attempt to make Christians appear marginalized has the effect of making them all look like old fools, if you ask me. When there's any kind of story that exploits this fear monge ...

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 ...

Leo Igwe interview transcript

Jake: Today I have a very special guest, someone who is going to join me to talk about the problem of child witches in Africa as well as the conflation of religion and superstition in that region. I wanted to ask someone who has had their feet on the ground here, because, you know, I am an isolated blogger and I want to make sure that I am not just saying false information and with this in mind, I invited L ...

Mother’s letter to atheist son shows the divisive power of religion

Here's a tragic example of what happens when your loved ones are ensnared in the clutches of religious dogma: My Darling Son David, You are so very special to me and have always been the love of my life. I used to think when you were little that I would die for you, and live because of you. You meant the world to me and I will always love you very much. Because of this love I always wanted you to have the h ...

Illinois conservatives defeat anti-bullying measure claiming it had a “gay agenda”

In light of homosexuality becoming more accepted in society, there are still those individuals who have a problem with the idea two people of the same sex can love each other. Of the few institutions that still harbor an intense hatred of gays, the most respected is religion, and this has meant the fight for civil rights has been pitted against "religious freedom". This tactic isn't new; Southern Baptists w ...
