9 Things ‘Atheist’ Does Not Mean

Atheists are satanists!

Okay, kids, say it with me. All together now: Atheism is just a lack of belief in a god. Nothing more, nothing less.  It’s like our mantra, our holy chant that we wail at the wall of ignorance. It never seems to stop; our need to explain the simplicity of atheism is neverending. I’m not

Browns Superbowl

As many of you know, I have a new cat. I’ve never been a cat owner before and I like it. He’s squishy and soft and loving and he likes to wake me in the morning for scratches with my long nails. For the first month or so, he was sleeping in my stepdaughter’s bed

If You Don’t Believe In God, Why Have You Devoted Your Life To Mocking Him?

If you don't believe in god...

Oh, hi! I didn’t see you there. You know, there is not a day that goes by on Instagram that I don’t get asked one specific question multiple times. In fact, I didn’t have one individual instance of this question in mind to respond to when beginning this post – instead, I scrolled through my recent comments and

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

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

If there is one overwhelmingly common theme running through all the emails and stories I get from atheists, it’s the guilt theme.

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.
