Atheist News Podcast Project

Hey guys.

I probably shouldn't put this off anymore, so I'm just going to jump on it and improvise. I'm pretty sure the show is over. It was a ton of fun doing it, but with work and my son and my wife in school I simply don't have time to do it anymore.

Other folks have offered to take over but I don't really feel comfortable with that. Quit while you're ahead, sez I.

Anyhow, I payed for another year of hosting, so the archive of podcasts will be available for at least that long.

I really enjoyed podcasting, so I might do something again in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks guys and gals! It was AMAZING.

Q: Do atheists celebrate Halloween? A: Sure. Why pass up an excuse for a party?

Q: But isn't Halloween a religious holiday?
A: Not really. It started out as a celtic pagan holiday called Samhain and eventually became mixed up with the Christian holy day of All Saints, but the pagan parts, the Jack-o'-lanterns, the dressing up as ghosts, witches, etc., predominate. These days it's pretty secular. Even if it weren't, we'd still celebrate it. After all, the Christians weren't shy about appropriating it, or Christmas, or Easter from the pagans.

Q: How do atheists celebrate Halloween?
A: Didn't you see the picture of the baby with a knife in its chest?

'Mini-Satan!' 8D

And thanks to Stephan Goodwin (and me cleaning off my glasses so I could read the whole web page) I found the link to follow the news stories. Weird; that seems to have been the default for all the pages. Will need to go to all my groups and make sure I'm on the 'follow' list.

I shall call you mini-Satan.
Comment by Jo Jerome on October 17, 2009 at 2:32pm
Oooh, and I just noticed that my last comment was the 333rd comment posted. Does that make me half-demon?

On a whole other subject, I'm not getting email notifications anymore when someone starts a discussion in Atheist News. I get it for new discussions in other groups and I get the somebody-commented-on notifications when I hit 'follow.' But no notices when someone starts a new discussion in Atheist News.

MoJoe - that photo is fantastic! It just went up on my facebook page with the caption:

"And lo, Jesus said unto the oppressed and the sickly; 'If my Heavenly Father truly loved you, your employer would offer affordable health benefits. Suck it up losers and quit bleeding on my good sandals.'"

His "Soles" Keep Marchin' On.
Though he was not an atheist, he was figuratively and literally a Free-thinker. Old John Brown led his racially-mixed insurgents against the slave machine 150 years ago today. Here's what the Nature Chaplain has to say.

Perhaps the conservapedia bible shall read:

And the Lord God spoketh and said unto the people "Lo if you are ill, it is the pain of Satan, and no one of man shall cure you, so stop asking."

-Colbert 5:14
Comment by Louis Davout on October 16, 2009 at 8:17am
lol. I'm sure that will be in the conservapedia version of the bible.
