New York Times fingers Pope

Yes, I've always wanted to use a headline like this, and today seemed like the perfect time to do it. Plus it helps that it's completely true; the New York Times has supposedly come up with definitive evidence that Ratzinger was not only aware of Reverend Peter Hullerman (formerly known only as "H") had molested children and, rather than notify authorities, simply transferred him to another parish despite a ...

SeaWorld tragedy could have been avoided by following scripture

A few days ago, an orca named Tilikum dragged trainer Dawn Brancheau down into the water, drowning her before a crowd of spectators. This wasn't the first time the killer whale was involved in a deadly incident, and this has galvanized the American Family Association into action. They released a statement saying this tragedy could have been avoided had the owners of SeaWorld simply followed scripture: Chalk ...

Smut for Smut campaign shocks Fox News

Here's further proof no one at Fox News has actually ever bothered to read the damn Bible. If they did, they might have noticed much of it is pure insanity, coupled with stories of genocide, infanticide, incest, rape, and everyone's favorite, the threat of eternal damnation. A little bit of porn never hurt anyone; hell, one of the hosts seems to be all too familiar with the very "smut" they seem so outraged ...

You suck, New Zealand

Ok, well, maybe the whole country doesn't suck, but your bus company, NZ Bus sure does. They've just rejected the Atheist Bus Campaign after they received complaints about the ads. Is it surprising that not everyone would be pleased with the simple and direct message "There's probably no God"? It's not as though these buses haven't also featured religious ads that were just as offensive to non-believers. Th ...

New logo means new toys

Ok, I'm finishing up the new Good Atheist logo, and I'd like to hear what you guys think; after all, I'm planning on putting this sucker on all kinds of fun swag that will become available in the coming months. I've heard some of you asking for mugs, shirts and other trinkets, but if you have any other additional ideas for things to sell, I'm all ears. Technically, you're the one buying it, so I'd be a fool ...

Site News: Podcast archive fixed

Hey gang. Some of you hardcore fans have been asking me to put up some of the earlier podcasts (specifically shows 1-14) and I've finally gotten around to doing it. If you recall, after we switched servers, I actually lost a bunch of them, but luckily a fan had them all saved on his computer, and they aren't lost forever. Truth is I was rather glad, since in show #13, I said Sudan is in the Middle East, whi ...

New Atheist bus campaign is wicked

At first, when the atheist bus campaign started gathering steam, I was a little skeptical of the relative merit of it all (I mean, when's the last time an ad ever convinced you to do anything?). That was before realizing the controversy surrounding them would help galvanize atheists. I was man enough to reverse my position, and I'm happy to say I'm a fan now. The latest campaign out of Britain has me even m ...

Fox News is the worst at everything

If you want a good example of journalistic "slant", I urge you to watch this video carefully. The story itself is quite shocking; a judge who received kickbacks for sending juveniles to private correction facility has all his convictions thrown out. So over 6500 kids are now free from this nightmare. Since this video is on Fox News, what is the likeliest angle to approach this story? Will she be shocked tha ...

New pick up line?

Are you tired of hearing about sleezy Christians trying to lure naive and gullible believers into their beds? Me neither. The latest story comes out of Huston, where Robert Louis Rousseau, an unlicensed 8th grade teacher had been using the Bible to pressure young women into sleeping with him. His "line" to convince them to sleep with him is almost too comical for words: She [the victim] also told authoritie ...

TGA reaches new milestone

Just a little note that TGA has reached a new milestone! After 3 years of steady blogging, I'm happy to announce we've officially written over 1000 posts. This number seems almost unfathomably huge to me for some reason. I suppose I secretly doubted we would ever stick with the site for this long, but now that we've cracked that number, I want to add another zero in there. We've got a lot of great plans for ...
