Yessir brigade

Presenting… your honourable (I use the term loosely) commander, General Snowflake. Yessir brigade at attention!  At ease, soldiers. What has brought me here today, men, women and attack helicopters, is a simple reminder that as a member of the Yessir Brigade, you are hereby obligated to identify Nazis. Your pointer fingers better be sharp and

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Find The Prince Of Comedy

Kwame Siegel

Somewhere between the Church of Scientology building on Hollywood Blvd and the Chinese theatre that keeps changing names, my stepdaughter and I ran into Kwame Siegel, The Prince of Comedy. The last time I’d been on the Blvd, I was up to my halo in a fuzzy Vicodin-induced euphoria, so I didn’t recall that the

How Do You Talk To An Atheist?

What Dennis hopes for.

It wouldn’t be a day in my life if I was not exposed to some lobotomy patient’s weak-ass straw man about what atheists are all about. It’s the same old shit, day in and day out and, honestly, it gets older than Keith Richards cryogenically frozen long enough to listen to his own music on

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Get A Lecture From Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan I Can Hear You

Before I actually worked there, I had this glamorous idea of what working at the airport might be like. I thought I’d get all these amazing travel discounts and I’d be able to move up and get promotions. I thought it would be exciting, seeing all these happy travellers come and go to and from incredible adventures. I

Believers: 6 Signs You’ll Be An Atheist Soon

Atheist

I’ve been around atheist Twitter long enough to watch several people go from angry, confrontational self-described victims of Christian persecution, to atheist in a matter of months. I’ve seen many people turn, leave their faith behind and experience the exhilaration of being free of dogma and cognitive dissonance. Most outspoken atheists have seen this so

20 Things I Would Tell God To Do If I Was His PR Advisor

God's new image

Let’s face it, God’s not doing so well here on earth. Belief in him is declining worldwide, church attendance is dwindling and more and more people are dissociating themselves with the outdated institution of religion.

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Befriend The Butcher

The Polish Butcher

When I first met him, he called me Shorty. I had red hair then, but when I went blonde about two months in, I became Blondie. I am almost one hundred percent sure he never used my real name. It was a marketing meeting, which I had implemented monthly with the department managers of the nonprofit

Triggered: All Atheist Conferences Are For White Men Only

Halal lattes

I once hacked into my mom’s school district BBS account and stayed up all night arguing with the teachers in my town about the death penalty. I identified myself and argued clearly, with facts and reason, while they all grew irrational justice hard-ons and descended into fits of “tough on crime”. My mom, a sixth grade

Frustration

I love writing about atheism, and tweeting about atheism and debating about atheism, I really do. Sometimes though, it can be as frustrating as trying to find sense in a Salon article. Here are a few of the frustrations only out and open atheists understand: 1. When the terminally faithful accuse you of calling yourself

Atheist Life Hacks: How To Fight A War In Vietnam

Hallucinogenic trip

I used to do a lot of magic mushrooms. I know, you’re probably thinking, this explains a lot. You’d probably be right. I’m sure the amount of mushrooms I did rewired something in my wetware. A mushroom trip is not easy to explain. Best I can describe it, they make everything utterly and exquisitely delightful and
