Stupid Atheist Goaded Into Answering Idiotic Questions… Again

y u no reply stupid atheist?

In my long wait for a decent question from a believer, I have collected hundreds of really asinine questions. They sit, collecting on top of themselves, in my inbox, waiting for attention; waiting for an answer. Sometimes, the asker keeps emailing me, “Can’t answer my question? Stupid atheist!” “Why won’t you answer me? Afraid?” And

Ask Mommy: How Do I Explain Christmas To My Kids?

Christmas

Adult humans do some weird things. Dragging a dead tree into our living room and throwing balls all over it is definitely one of them. It’s fun and we love it, but it’s fucking weird and you come to realize just how strange it all is when you’re asked how to explain Christmas to someone

Ask Mommy: How Do I Deal With Religious Parental Guilt Trips?

There's a reason they call it Nice.

When I was fifteen, I traveled through Southeast Asia and the South Pacific with my parents. We spent two weeks on the Island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Our little rental bungalow was one of about a dozen encircling a pool, where all the hotel guests gathered in the evening with dinner, drinks and

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Kick Anxiety’s Ass

Shyness and anxiety

I used to be brutally shy. I mean brutally shy. I once had a job at a grocery store in the meat department wrapping meat. I worked there for six months and didn’t say a single solitary word to a soul. I got by with nods, shrugs and head shakes and it made my life

Every Atheist Does Not Need: The City Of Angels

Hollywood is looney tunes.

I came home from Los Angeles on Sunday. It’s taken me until Wednesday to be able to talk about it. I feel like I’ve been soul-raped, even though I don’t believe in a soul, nor its susceptibility to any sort of violent crime. I’m going to be honest with you LA-dwellers: what in the good

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Apologize For Neglecting You

Star Wars Cake

My little heathens… I apologize for being completely AWOL this past week – August, for my family, is birthday madness and it ends after the big one: my son’s. I was tits deep in cake batter and frosting, struggling to fill Kylo Ren-shaped piñatas and breathing all my energy into a few dozen balloons. Houseguests

State Of The Goddamned Union – Updates from GM

Godless Mom

Happy hump day, Heathens! I thought I’d give you a quick update so you know what’s going on at godlessmom.com. As you know, a few months a go, things were pretty dire with our child support/custody case regarding my stepdaughter (click here for info) While it’s still completely financially draining and we still don’t have

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Be Motivated By The Good News

Swimming

If you’ve been following along with my Jehovah’s Witnesses saga, you know I’ve been passed off from witness to witness, some of them disappearing without a word, others moving on to bigger, fancier things in the big city. I’ve finally been handed off to a woman we’ll call Kate, who is, it seems, in it for

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Live With A Fear Of Big Shoes

Pippi Longstocking shoes

I must have been about five when I first saw the Wizard of Oz. There was a little video store in the heart of the small fishing village where I lived. My family and I would walk there and wander the dimly lit rows of shelves filled with more movies than I’d ever see. I’d run my

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Be Wrong About Canadian History

Canadian history

As a kid in Canada, every school year meant another unit on Louis Riel and another on the Hudson’s Bay Company. All of us know these stories by heart, because this is what Canadian history meant to the school board. We’d speed through our own history in a fortnight and get back to the serious
