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.

Is anyone else having trouble with the newest podcast? Mine ends at 22:31 in mid-sentence

That's awesome Aces, I hope that YouTube doesn't screw them.

Just a quick note re: Center for Inquiry

"Finally, we're happy to say that CFI has been granted a coveted YouTube nonprofit channel which is allowing us to make available hundreds of hours of CFI programming for FREE without the standard 10-minute-content-limit reloading frustrations. You'll find program listings on our own CFI Digital Media page or you can go directly to our CFI YouTube channel."

I'm viewing this as a milestone because many freethought-atheist agnostic-humanist channels on YouTube have been systematically suspended or canceled unjustly, via vote-bot from religious organizations. YouTube traditionally turns a blind eye to the practice. It looks like they won't be doing this to CFI. Awesome!

Would I be removed from your church if I stated that "God does NOT exists. Religion is a crutch. You are wasting your time and your money on your faith. Set your minds free."

And if I was nasty "Religion is used by the simple minded to explain things that they don't understand in the natural world. Your god is the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."

"Christianity is the belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree. "

I wonder if you know what "freedom of speech" and "freedom of expression" really means.

If someone was to remove your comment for violating the terms of service of this community, that wouldn't be a freedom of speech issue. No one is stifling your freedom to say what you want. You go ahead, there are hundreds of places and thousands of people who would like what you have to say, this isn't one of those places.

It seems to me you are more interested in proselytizing then having a conversation.

One of our rights is the right not to have to listen. But I will screen-shot this and post it and my response in my pictures area. Just so that people can see, that your freedom of expression wasn't violated.

I subscribe to D.M. Murdock (aka Acharya S.) page on

On that page is an ad for "Cosmic Answers" with the line: "FINALLY: A Bulletproof, Airtight Case for Intelligent Design"

If you want to see the worst bullshit ever perpetrated read that site, especlally the PDF file "New Scientific Evidence for the Existence of God"

Here are the worst examples:
What encouraged me about Jeffrey’s statement was that even Jeffrey, as an atheist, recognized the equation, Big Bang = Jesus Christ. If you prove the Big Bang, you prove Jesus Christ.

I thought that you might be curious of the equation that convinced Albert Einstein that God exists, that God created the universe. This equation falls under the theory of general relativity.

Why do people always mis-quote Einstein for the purpose of using him to prove their misguided notion that there is a "god".
The same thing was done with Prof. Stephen Hawking.

I'm totally making a lolcat out of that.

Ahh, the true enlightened cat-worshipers. And does your feline god/dess also curiously change color when rolling in the dirt?

Praise be to the catatonic state of ...

[Cat] "Silly hu-mans. Just wait until the mothership arrives and we retake our rightful place as rulers of the galaxy. Then it will be you who will eat dry food pellets and shit in a sandbox. All in good time, all in good time."
Comment by MaleficVTwin on August 22, 2009 at 11:41pm
Mary, I've been worshiping my cat for years, and my friend has been worshiping his as well. When we feel blessed by their divine indifference, we are in a 'catatonic' state. :)
Comment by Jo Jerome on August 22, 2009 at 8:09pm
My cat changes color. I let her outside and within a few minutes her white fur has taken on a tone much closer to that of the dirt surrounding the area.

You may all start worshiping my cat now.
