"I know I've thrown this quote around A|N here and there, but as it comes to the issue of human vs. biblical morality, I think the following says it astonishingly well: If I could stop a man from raping a child, I would. That's the…"

"Thanks, Ruth. I wrote that passage a long time ago. Too bad nothing ever came of it. Cynthia, my heroine, had been slipped a pill of psilocybin (DMT), and her entire worldview changed accordingly. One of the most difficult aspects of writing is to…"

Atheist Morality

A place for atheists to discuss morality issues. What shapes your morality? What new perspectives have you found since abandoning faith (if you ever had any)? Is there any merit to religious moral authority?

Creationist Ignorance: Fight Back!

A place to post videos and links to scientific information refuting creationism. Also a place to alert your fellow atheists of upcoming legislation in your area.

AAI Convention, post-convention thoughts.

I want to start by saying a couple things about the blogging here. I started some months ago putting up regular posts, and then inexplicably stopped. This was due to some internal wrangling between Joe, Lamar and myself as to what this website was going to be, how it related to what’s going on at atheiskeptihumanist.com and atheistnews.org. I think these have all been worked out and I’ll be posting here again.



Now, on to the show.



As many of our listeners are aware (and… Continue

I blog over on the Chariots of Iron site, and I just put up a long one over there, it was rather well thought out so i thought I'd mirror it here for AN users that don't visit our podcast site... and yes this has been a shameless plug for bot the blog and the podcast. The version there contains many links to some references. I don't mirror posts often, so I hope you enjoy this rant.



Today has been one of ups and downs and it’s not even noon… Continue

Over on the Wired.com blogs I saw an interesting article which relates precisely to the segment we did in season one, episode one.



This article does a much better job of pointing out some competing ideas, and gets into some information I did not have time to adequately cover in the segment, I strongly suggest clicking through the links in the article as well. I know that the LHC is dominating the minds of pop-science fans, but these are major breakthroughs going on which implications… Continue

I was thinking of a thought experiment to try and teach my child when she comes of age about the very basics of religion and atheism and why I stand where I do. This is what came to me as I lay trying to fall asleep last night.



Take two cups, one clear and one opaque, fill the clear one up with stones, beads, etc.. or a wide range of colors, have the opaque cup upside-down on a table. Tell the person that under this cup there may or may not be a stone under the cup and then ask them… Continue

does your politics extend to watch Bill Maher on HBO. Being a movie fanatic, which are the 5 movies not to be missed?

Hi, how are you?
About one of the atheist quotes in your profile: I am a neuroscientist, and my secret wish is to perform an experiment giving anti-psychotic drugs to these "mediunic" people...

Eli, I'm sending you an email response to the LFC discussion I started with you, let me know if you get it. I know the chariots has been having trouble with email, and now google crome is telling me that it cant find chariotsofiron.com or atheiskeptihumanist.com.

I am happy to see you are alive... =) Looking forward to your next rant or tirade on the 'cast. So, like I told Joe, please don't make me travel down from Bremerton to poke you guys with a pokey stick til the next show is posted for all to enjoy!

Would you believe I'm still on Pacific time? Took me 4 days to stop getting up at 4 am (East coast time, 7 am) and then on the 5th day I flew the redeye back. Been home 5 days and I may be in my time zone by Monday. Good to met you. See you next time.
