Every Atheist Needs: JW Library

JW Library

I have always hoped that the sorts of people who read my blog are also the sorts of people who can sense, from my tone and my personality, that not everything I say is literal down to the last letter. Of course, those hopes have been dashed now and again by my less… let’s say,

Every Atheist Needs: Dogma Debate

Dogma Debate

I have a confession to make. It might be shocking to you, so grab a chair and hang on. Here goes. *exhale* For a very long time, I didn’t listen to any atheism themed podcasts. Yes, that’s right. I, Godless Mom, didn’t listen to atheist podcasts. In fact, I’d go so far as to say

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

Every Atheist Needs: Atheos


I get confronted by a ton of theists every day. Some of them are kind and genuinely curious, asking questions about atheism and how I discovered it. Others are outright rude, dismissive and really try to press on my last nerves. Admittedly, I don’t always respond the way I ought to. I try very hard

Every Atheist Needs: Mr. Robot

Mr. Robot religion rant

Warning: Mild Spoilers If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like if Donnie Darko had joined Fight Club, now’s your chance to find out. The relatively new show, Mr. Robot, is like the story of Donnie Darko’s redheaded stepchild running a Fight Club chapter out of the basement. It’s a little bit sci-fi, a little bit nerdy and

Every Atheist Needs: Grace Without God

Katherine Ozment: Grace Without God

As someone who’s never had a religion, I’ve never felt I was missing anything that people insist religion offers. Community, awe, purpose, meaning, tradition and the rest of the endless list religious people are sure can only be cultivated from deep faith and devotion to a supernatural God, are all things I have never felt I

Every Atheist Needs: Penn & Teller: Bullshit!

Penn & Teller Bullshit!

The first time I watched Penn & Teller: Bullshit! I was single with no kids and binge-watched the whole thing with my bestie over the course of a weekend. We’d never seen anything like it before, and we kept watching it together over and over in the years that followed. Penn Jillette and Teller put together,

Every Atheist Needs: The Path

The Path

I was a huge fan of Breaking Bad. It’s among my all-time favourite television shows, and while Bryan Cranston was beyond spectacular, my favourite actor on the cast for Breaking Bad was always Aaron Paul. I think that’s because he surprised me. When they first introduced us to Jesse Pinkman, I assumed he was going to

Every Atheist Parent Needs: Crash Course Philosophy

Crash Course Philosophy

I’ve talked to you before about Crash Course Kids, the junior offering from John Green’s awesome Crash Course franchise. Today, though, I want to tell you about a new series of videos currently under way on the Crash Course channel. Hank Green, John’s even nerdier brother and one half of the Vlog Brothers, is our

Every Atheist Needs: Spotlight


It’s not often I enjoy new movies these days. They are all sequels or prequels or remakes of remakes or some monopolization of previously successful franchises. There’s no creativity involved anymore, no original stories like Forrest Gump or Donnie Darko. Creative meetings go more or less like this: “Well, we made a lot of money off
