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

Perhaps the God Squad want to bully Gays into suicide and atheists into silence. That solves the "problems" neatly. Or perhaps Gs and As don't really count as full human beings and not therefore deserving of protection, a situation dark-skinned people know well.
Comment by Steph S. on November 5, 2011 at 10:44am
Right Loren! I agree.
That's a terrible bill. I can't believe it passed!
Comment by Loren Miller on November 5, 2011 at 10:29am

Do the believers have a right to believe, regardless of the belief's irrationality?  Yes.

Do they have a right to impact another with their belief?  NO!

How many times do I have to say this?  Your right to wave your belief about Ends At Someone Else's NOSE!!!

Comment by Paula T. on November 5, 2011 at 10:12am

How do these bills get so twisted?  This makes me ashamed of being a Michigan resident.  My sons were taught NEVER to tease, but rather to treat others how they want to be treated.  They were taught to accept people for who they are.  That's one thing I won't tolerate - bullying - and if I saw it go on when I worked in my sons' school, I put a stop to it immediately.  

Two steps forward, one step back :(

Comment by Daniel W on November 5, 2011 at 9:57am
those people are total assholes.  if the Michigan voters continue to support them, what does that say about the voters?
Comment by Loren Miller on November 5, 2011 at 9:44am
This goes beyond obstructionism and into whole new territory ... or maybe I should say, "madness."  WTF, indeed.

"Why is religion getting a pass?"

From article, here:  http://www.atheistroundtable.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=mdmc5go3....

Republicans in Michigan senate turn a Democratic no-bullying bill into a Christian pro-bullying bill and pass it!  Must read.

Comment by Geoffrey Goodwin on October 29, 2011 at 11:55am

After all this seriousness, a bit of levity quite out of context.

Have you heard of the dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac who laid awake all night wondering if there really was a dog.

Comment by Geoffrey Goodwin on October 28, 2011 at 6:37pm

When the US forced world wide free trade too fast, it opened the opportunity for US corporations to export a vast number of US jobs and technologies to third world low wage countries. This enabled the corporations to greatly increase their profits, in the hands of a smaller number of individuals.

The corporations then moved their headquarters to low tax or no tax offshore locations, so that the profits they made could be distributed tax free.

This has caused a loss of intellectual property, huge unemployment, the concentration of wealth in fewer and fewer individuals and a great loss of tax income, hence the the country's unsustainable debt burden.

Just where the blame lies, the administration? The Federal Reserve? the big banks? Wall street or the corporations that have abandoned the country is debatable.

I think that stupid trade decisions by various administrations, greed on the part of corporations, bad control of the money supply by the Fed. and poor lending practices by the banks have created the perfect storm which will result in hyper inflation and the replacement of the US dollar as the world's reserve currency.
