When Theists Assume It Makes An Ass Out Of… Well, Theists

No, good people don't assume things about strangers

Jack Nicholson nailed it. That condescending smile that just puts the fear of death in you so deep you feel it kicking around in your spleen.

Why I Don’t Think Anyone Truly Believes In God

Professor Daniel Dennett

Before I jump right into this hypothesis of mine, I want to make a few things clear. First, Godless Mom is not an authority on either psychology or any sort of science. If I had to pick a topic to say I am any sort of an authority on, it would be the accumulation of

Happy Hump Day, Heathens! I am a YouTube junkie. It’s true. I love the fact that everyday, regular people can publish intelligent video content and have an audience without having to go through a bunch of old, rotting execs at Fox or something.
