Mommy and Daddy broke up, kids

In case you haven't had the chance to listen to Episode 306 of the podcast, Carisa and I are no longer a romantic couple. I've moved back to the east coast, and despite us both being sad at this recent development, it was a mutual decision. Obviously, this has some pretty serious consequences for me, and the podcast in the future. To make up for the expense of moving again, I'll probably need to find a part ...

TGA Podcast: Episode 303

After building a makeshift recording setup, I was able to interview Professor of Native Archeology Dean R. Snow to talk about the legend of the Great Peacemaker, the structure of Native society, and how things might have played out differently if not for the European Invasion. NOTES: Dr. Dean R. Snow, Professor of Archeology at Penn State. Author of “Archeology of North America”, Difficulty finding reliable ...

Pink Swastika author Scott Lively charged with crimes against humanity

If you don't know who Scott Lively is, he's the monster who authored The Pink Swastika, a book I've derided in the past for its pseudo-historical claim that Nazis were a secret gay organization intent on destroying heterosexuality. It ranks about as high as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in terms of historical verisimilitude. In March of 2009, Scott and a posse of other Evangelical Christians traveled ...

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 ...

Please take your medication, buddy.

There are a few articles on TGA that invariably attract the kinds of crazy comments that have to be read to be believed. Sometimes you have to spend some time trying to decipher through their insanity, and attempt to understand exactly what these deranged individuals are trying to communicate. This recent comment seems especially difficult to make out (which I haven't altered in any way): Clearly The Scienc ...

String of atheism signs vandalized, no real action taken by officials

I know many of you out there think making holiday displays and fighting to have them displayed is a waste of time, but with the recent strings of vandalism against our property, not to mention the ridiculous reasons given by city officials for rejecting these banners helps highlight the fact that atheists are still a vilified and abused minority. This echos a report by the International Humanist and Ethical ...

Dutch Catholics desperate to jump ship after Pope’s bigoted speech

The world is changing, but this isn't a fact that pleases the Catholic Church too much. Concerned their ability to dictate the lives of their fellow human beings is waning, the Pope recently addressed his fellow Catholics to wish them a joyous Christmas, and attempted to convince the world that two dudes trying to marry one another was a threat to world peace, and goes against nature (kind of like celibacy, ...

UK still afraid of free speech

There's no denying it: the UK is afraid of free speech. With their ridiculous libel laws, scientists are routinely brought to trial for exposing quacks and frauds. Ben Goldacre, author of the book Bad Science has spent a considerable amount of his own money defending himself from England's ridiculous legal system. While the country claims to give its citizens freedom of speech, in reality their rights are ' ...

Who needs a lab when you have a green screen?

You know what's great about being an 'Intelligent Design' scientist? You get to save all of the money you would normally be spending on electron microscopes, computers, DNA sequencing machines or a host of other expensive equipment. Why bother to invest in technology when your premise is the world of make-believe is more real than the physical one? The only 'equipment' you need is a lab coat, a Bible, and a ...

Can you believe this guy?

I don't often get trolled, but when I do, it's usually something epic. Take this "Marcus" character for instance: he commented on an article I wrote about a ridiculous book written called The Pink Swastika, by a religious fundy who claims Hitler and his thugs were actually a gang of 'homofascists', intent on corrupting the world with their 'gayness'. This revisionist history completely ignores the fact that ...
