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

Sweet, Joe's still alive.

 

We heard you were dead, man.  You look good.

James Corbett is a nice guy. There is a Chariots of Iron podcast with him in it from a couple of years ago. It was a fun show. He does a pretty good job of explaining how the whole thing went down.
Comment by MaleficVTwin on August 22, 2011 at 9:03pm
The kid proved his teacher's point. The comments were made to get him to understand the consequences of embracing dogma at all costs, and in order to embrace it he rejected his education. I'm sure the irony was lost on this poor student. Maybe one day he'll figure it out.
Comment by John Secular Smith on August 22, 2011 at 3:54pm
To clarify that article, it is my current understanding that the criticism that the appeals court could have set precedent but did not is flawed.  The Supreme Court is going to have to set the precedent, so the Appeals court did the correct thing in effectively punting it up to the next level. 

If someone knows the law better and can correct me, please do.  This is NOT my strong suit.
Comment by John Secular Smith on August 22, 2011 at 11:01am
Good to know, but that won't stop teachers from getting fired and fighting for years in the court system...and losing the first round to some redneck asshat and having to appeal it.
Comment by Daniel W on August 21, 2011 at 9:13pm
Secular One (Do we call you "Sec" for short?  "Mr. "One"?) I know where you are coming from.  I am in a position that requires I not be overly visible about myself.  I am able to keep it separate and be objective regardless of who I deal with, but others can not.  It is what it is.
Comment by Steph S. on August 21, 2011 at 8:59pm
Sorry to hear that Secular One -- will do what you ask.
Comment by John Secular Smith on August 21, 2011 at 6:51pm
If you know my real name (my image has not changed) please do not use it in any comments any longer.  I have changed to simply The Secular One so I do not get fired at some future date because my free speech is no longer free.

Sad but true.  I'll still be an open atheist though, but arguments made in my name will be done in person only now.
Comment by Daniel W on August 15, 2011 at 10:39pm
My guess is he had to get a life and work for a living and spend time with family.  Poor guy.  I hope that's all it is.
Comment by Susan Stanko on August 10, 2011 at 3:42pm
