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.

Love,

--Joe

I found it interesting that the cycle sign is not on this one from 1334, but is on his triptych the following year. It may mean nothing, though it mat mean everything. I don't think that the "DaVinci" code only pertains to DaVinci, and travels long and far away from the last supper...

By the way, that site (wga) world gallery of art is a massive site, that gave me much insight to who really runs this world, and they have for a very long time, and as far as I can see they progressed, and developed the mosaic of the European land scape and the USA.

it's a site called ;

if you have a way to zoom this photo, do it, and focus in the triangle above mary's head. You'll see a cycle. I believe there is a way to produce much physical proof that religion is a sham, and has always been about progress, to atain a certain goal. I'm talking modern religion, The Abrahamic religions.

Hey Dallas. great video, fast talkers.... I despise them, though I have been trying to relay this to other atheists, that science was started by religion, which really "excellerated" in the 14th/16th centuries. There are plenty of clues to back that up.

See, I thought that atheism was about the dis-belief in god, with the goal to even prove the non-existance of god. I guess I really didn't think it was jumping from one extreme to the other. This isn't directed towards you at all. I'm just putting it out there.

This is a great theme for discusion though, except that I'm afraid there are just as many biased atheists as there are biased theists, so you see... we'll never get at the truth, that middle road, main stream will always be one extreme or the other.

So we hit #1 in the Religion & Spirituality -> Other category again, so I decided to see how we were faring amongst all Religion & Spirituality podcasts (not just the "Other" subcategory.) Take a look at who we are beating.

Unfortunately, the accursed Dali Lama is still kicking our ass. Damn that little monk...



Thanks a lot guys, keep spreading the word!

While drinking my morning coffee and reading the news, I found this lovely article in the LA Times blasting Atheists! Apparently we are all "boo-hoo victims". This chic blasts Richard Dawkins, then proceeds to talk about how in America we (atheists) CAN run for public office!!! WTF? Not in Texas! Atheists CANNNOT run for public office! In the south there are a handful of states that don't allow us to run! Read the article for yourself! It's disgusting.
