10 New Questions For Atheists From A Theology Student

Answers from atheists

Every once in a while, I get a thoughtful email from a religious student asking for help with an assignment. Usually, it’s an assignment for a philosophy class, and requires points of view from various types of people, including atheists. I am always happy to oblige. This time, I got a list of questions from

Every Atheist Needs: The Red Pill

The Red Pill

I know I’m going to cop a lot of heat for this, but I would hope that if the headline already has you burning with rage, you might take a minute to calm down and then consider the possibility that I might have something reasonable to say on this topic. I spent a long time fighting

4 Questions From A Brand New Atheist

atheism

Wrestling with insomnia, I fluttered around Reddit last night. Tented by the quilt my husband’s aunt handmade for us, the dim glow of the app’s night mode lit up my face while I skimmed through r/debateandatheist. This is the subreddit where faith goes to die, where it gets cold clocked by the hammer of reason.

Video: If All Religious Leaders Were Like This, We Wouldn’t Need To Be Outspoken Atheists

Religious leaders smoke weed

I caught this video on Reddit this morning and I was so impressed with the Rabbi and the priest. First, they were willing to smoke weed. Second, they were sitting next to an openly gay atheist and treated him and his lack of belief with absolute respect. If all religious leaders were this open, compassionate, […]

New Podcast Episode! Hyper-Sensitive, Eternally-Triggered, Outrage Army!

Atheist podcast episode 10

In this episode, Donovan and I chatted a little bit about conspiracy theories, and alternative medicine. Nutritional pseudoscience also came up when we discussed MSG and why it’s completely harmless, and really, just the victim of racism back in the less open-minded 50s. We also discuss the latest outrage parties- the Walking Dead t-shirt that

Every Atheist Needs: Atheist Tiki Hour

Atheist Tiki Hour

I’ve raved before about works by Logospilgrim and I cannot rave about this one enough, either. This is a quick read (although it took me what felt like a millennia because I have had zero time to sit and read), but it’s going to leave you feeling great. Absolutely unique, this book has humour, compassion, moving

Holy F*cking Comments: Candy & Boobs!

Candy

I haven’t done a comment round up in a long time, y’assholes, and I always enjoyed it. So, I thought I’d deliver to you some of the best, most guffaw-worthy abominations of the English language I’ve had posted to my content lately, so you and I can crack a beer, pop some corn and watch the

This Theist Thinks He’s Found The Way To Help Atheists See The Light

Do you see the light?

Lawrence Meyers over at Faithzette, thinks he’s found the only open door through which atheists can find a faith in god. Hilariously, he actually asserts that the reason we have trouble believing in a god, is because we have a misconception of what god is… and he’s not being satirical. He’s dead serious: Many atheists have simply

Every Atheist Needs: Bill Paxton In Big Love

Bill Paxton in Big Love

Over the weekend, the world became a little bit less awesome with the death of Bill Paxton. Forced to think back on his career, many of us have, in the last twenty-four hours, likely exclaimed that it felt like he was in damned near every movie ever made. 2 of the last 3 movies I

Here’s Why I Don’t Give A Sh*t How Many Sweet Nothings Pope Francis Has For Atheists

Popey McKidFucker, the Sentient Turd Smear

Since yesterday morning, I’ve been tweeted and emailed and messaged hundreds of links to various stories reporting that Pope Francis says it’s better to be atheist than to be a shitty Catholic. With each new tweet, message and email, the temperature of my blood has risen and now, just a day later, it’s boiling. But
