Creationist Alert!

It's only been a few days since it's been up, but already the forums are lighting up like the fourth of July. One topic that immediately caught my eye came courtesy of user DexM felt too important not to promote: The Christian club at my high school has invited creationist Bill Morgan from http://www.fishdontwalk.com/ to speak at one of their meetings. Needless to say I’m organizing a rapid response team to ...

Gingrich tells evangelicals “we need to defend ourselves”

In a continued effort to try and still be relevant, Newt Gingrich recently spoke to a modestly sized crowd in Cumming, Georgia assuring them of his (false) piety, and warning his dwindling support base that it was time for evangelicals to "defend themselves": "The other side will fight back and they will fight back on two fronts. You will have radical Islamists who want to kill us and you will have seculari ...

A lesson we can learn from David Albo

Ladies, I know how frustrated, angry and terrified you are about the current "War on Contraception" that the Right is currently engaged in. You have every right to be, especially when it's being framed not as a reproductive rights issue, but rather as a "religious freedom" issue. The solution comes from an unlikely source: Virginia Rep. David Albo. In the above video, this moron describes his failure to ban ...

Can we really claim that?

I realize that when you're trying to make a billboard express an esoteric point, there will be occasions when you'll fail to make the point. Attempting to reach out to people feeling isolated by their unbelief is a challenge, no doubt about it. It's why I'm going to try and be nice to this billboard that has recently appeared in Orange County, which claims that: "Atheist make better lovers (after all, no on ...

A Ray of Hope, perhaps?

I won't lie to you folks: things have been tough. My financial struggles notwithstanding, site troubles had conspired to sap the last ounce of enthusiasm I had about running this crazy operation. With the indignity of moving back in with my Mom (with a fiancée in tow, no less), the humiliation seemed complete. There's nothing like hitting rock bottom to learn that you're a lot tougher than you expected. Onc ...

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 ...

Cool new science show you need to subscribe to

This show seems like a lot of fun, but judging by all the comments, I think the host should: 1) Lose the facial hair. Dude looks like a rat in that thing. 2) Do something about the lens glare. Perhaps diffuse light might eliminate what is a distracting amount of glare shinning off those spectacles of his. 3) Get nicer clothing. L.L. Bean called, and they want their shitty shirts back, dude. Otherwise everyt ...

Christopher Hitchens, we will miss you

We all knew it was coming, but somehow we had managed to ignore the cruelty of reality for a little while. For a moment there, it almost seemed as though Hitch had managed to defeat his cancer. Unfortunately, life is a cruel bitch that kills your heroes prematurely (it's true that Jack Daniels and Phillip Morris had done most of the damage, but still). Now, the world is a little duller, a little dumber, and ...

The origins of Christmas

The Thinking Atheist is doing their part in helping you fire back at annoying Christians trying to make it seem as though they invented people celebrating the Winter Solstice. Normally, I don't really care to correct them, but it seems that this whole "War on Christmas" just keeps getting more annoying. There is a point where you have to send them back to schools with a few facts. ...

Atheists on Reddit get it done

Most of you know that I'm often critical of our community in terms of our charitably, as I've complained in the past that many of us are not willing to compete with financially supported organized religions yet. I'm convinced that the only way to fight the evils of religion is to play their game, to some degree. Part of that includes giving money to organizations that make an actual difference rather than o ...
