Atheist Life Hacks: How To Fly Your Dog To Mexico

Rocky

The night I moved to Mexico, it was snowing. I stood in line at YVR with my best friend, who is now Godless Dad, resting my bag on a giant animal crate stuffed full of my other best friend, Rocky. My stomach was in knots. I was about to hand over my baby dog to

Did Jesus Actually Exist? Why It Doesn’t Matter

Jesus in the shitter

Defying all previous trends, I got an email from a believer a couple of days ago that actually asked a decent question. It was coherent, to the point, and not at all framed in a “gotcha” sort of way. It’s not begging the question, nor erecting straw men. It’s just an honest question from someone

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?

I got this question in an email recently: Here is my situation. I gave up any religious beliefs for almost a decade, during which time I married and had a child. My husband is atheist. I recently went back to Christianity for almost a year and started taking our 4 and a half year old

Some people are so desperate to have the world bend and shape itself to the reality they desire, that they would die for it. I hope this woman gets the help she deserves before she kills anyone else:

Every Atheist Needs: The OA

The OA

Yet another television recommendation from GM? Yes! T.V. is where all the good storytellers have gone these days, let’s face it. Movies are clearly for simpletons now. You’ve got to have the memory of a goldfish to be able to enjoy seven incarnations of Batman per year. That and the need to “reboot” every movie that

Unicorn & Toast

Happy Friday, you hellbound infidels! Who else is exceedingly grumpy from eating nothing but celery in the wake of the Christmas binge? Me! I am! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on Twitter tonight as I inevitably let loose a long line of blasphemous gripes after I sip my first lucious few (dozen) cans

Ask Mommy: My Stepson Doesn’t Believe in Evolution. What Do I Do?

Father and Stepson

I got an email the other day from @hannibaltraven whose stepson is being fed creationist BS when he’s at his Dad’s. The email read: My 9yo stepson says he doesn’t believe people evolved from monkeys. After a long sigh, I tried to educate him but I don’t think he gets it. How do I change
