Big announcement March 1st

This weekend was huge for Ryan and I. We started talking about the future of our blogging 'empire' and we've realized there is a great deal of untapped potential in TGA we've largely been ignoring. After all, how the heck can anyone make a living just writing about religion all day, right? Well, it turns out we think we've figured out a way, and this Sunday we'll be recording a special Good Atheist podcast ...

An atheist life: Krista’s story

Since starting this section of the website, I've many great stories, but none were as intense as Krista's. Her early life exemplified the dangers of belief, especially when combined with mindless superstition, ritual, and dogmatic platitudes. Here is her story: I decided to write this in order to draw attention to the damage that religion can cause to children. At the same time I want to say that my parents ...

I knew it, Christmas IS evil!

More on the War on Christmas, and this time, it's not coming from us filthy atheists. Anjem Choudary is a Muslim chairman for the Society of Muslim Lawyers, and preaches on the corrupt influence Christmas apparently has on Muslims. Now it's one thing to dislike a holiday, but it's another entirely to decree yuletide festivities are a 'pathway to hellfire'. You gotta love these brimstone and hellfire guys. T ...

It’s Thanksgiving, apparently

I've only ever liked one holiday of the year. I usually can't stand Christmas, mostly because I find it shameful that the celebration of winter solstice has devolved into a consumerist holiday. Halloween is just annoying; although it's cute to see little kids in their funny costumes, I see more young adults dressed like fools desperately trying to recapture the magic of their childhood. Easter is a waste of ...

It’s a miracle!

Here's a video that will cheer you all up. This one shows a Benny Hinn special where a little girl, supposedly born with no brain, can now walk, count to five, and incredibly, cross her legs! What I find funny is this family was probably told their daughter was born with a brain deficiency (possibly autism), but that the parents understood this as the brain pysically not being in her head. That's good paren ...

Some atheists are taking themselves a bit too seriously..

Ggnothi seauton (Greek): It means know thyself, and it's something I've always taken to heart. I'm not always the most positive and easy going guy around. I've been known to kick some dust in the faces of my opposition. When you're in a fight, particularly one for the hearts and minds of your fellow human beings, you can sometimes lose sight of how the conflict changes you. When you have a website devoted t ...

An atheist church

Jake caused quite a stir with the concept of atheism as an organized religion (a much better article than my random link posts). Now an artist in San Francisco is converting a building into something of an atheist church as part of an exhibition for the Judah L Magnes Museum. From Boing Boing: Instead of telling the story of baby Jesus, the Atheon's stained glass windows will show cosmic microwave backgroun ...

Chuck Norris is no fun

Trust Chuck (and Jesus) to ruin the fun everyone was happening with those cool "Chuck Norris Facts". This is old but still highly amusing: Chuck Norris telling us 'the truth' about Evolution. Alleged Chuck Norris Fact: "There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live." It's funny. It's cute. But here's what I really think about the theory of evolution: It's not rea ...

The lethargy of the reading public

CNN wrote an interesting article concerning the fact that over a quarter of Americans adults had read no books this year. It of course seems ironic that such a report is likely to go unnoticed, but I thought I might make a little comment regarding this sad state of affairs, and also of the underlying religious corollary behind it. It seems a little bit funny that one of the people they interviewed, a man fr ...
