Things The Godly Say: The First Law Of Thermodynamics Disproves Evolution!

DNA Evolution

Last week I got a question from a reader. I’ll keep him anonymous, but let you know is Christian considers himself a skeptic. He said, One scientific reason that I don’t accept the theory of evolution and believe there is a god is because of the First Law of Thermodynamics. The First Law simply states that matter cannot

7 Words Theists Misuse Constantly

Me and my friend

I have this friend. She’s a good fifteen years younger than me, and we lived pretty close to each other when I was in vancouver. That was almost 4 years ago, so she was in her early twenties at the time. I remember one year, as her birthday approached, she kept bubbling on about wanting to go

What Would You Do If Christianity Were Proven True?

Fuck god

So, I was asked the other day what I would do if Christianity were suddenly proven true and there was no denying Jesus is the son of god any longer. While I clawed my way through the rest of the email, dotted with familiar phrases like “typical atheist” and “denying the evidence all around you” and

How Do Atheists Explain Anything?

Ball of the gaps

In my head right now, I have that insipid line from Rebecca Black’s glossolalia episode, Friday. You know the line. It’s goddamned poetry: “Fun, fun, fun, fun…” I’ve got this line in my head, because nothing is more fun than when theists demand an explanation for the unexplained, or the insufficiently explained phenomena that saturates our

6 Activities Atheists Love That Theists Feel Guilty About

If there is one overwhelmingly common theme running through all the emails and stories I get from atheists, it’s the guilt theme. As a lifer atheist, I have zero understanding of the guilt that comes with religion, but it seems to me it’s more crippling than a shot of that crap your neighbour’s distilling in

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Become A Nazi Sympathizer

I spent yesterday evening listening to Dan Arel on the Lalo Dagach podcast. The topic of discussion was punching nazis, the comically surreal issue that seems to have the skeptic community divided… still. I listened after I noticed Matt Dillahunty had been drawn into the conversation as well as Stephen Knight of the Godless Spellchecker podcast.

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

4 Questions From A Brand New Atheist

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.

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
