I live in India, the land of many Gods. You can't escape them here, however you may try. As an atheist, I enjoyed a clear understanding of stuff happening around me and also saw the lunacy of religious fanatics. So, I had decided to spread that no-nonsense understanding to any kids I have, or maybe to my young nephew for now. So, whenever I see someone trying to lead him astray, I nip those efforts in the bud. Here are some of my attempts to do that :-
Have you all checked out "Awkward Moments Children's Bible" yet? It's an Amazon award-winning book and concept. No, I don't own shares of this book or are related to it's creators but I really, really LOVE the whole concept asnd I often share the illustrations on my Facebook page. I'd like to see the author put the art+verse on the backs of T-shirts (large design so easily read) as I'd proudly wear that in public to get people to think - I'd even purposedly stand in lines and position myself…
Oh, well, yeah, I know. But should I tell? Mostly I've been running thither and yon, metaphorically speaking, and sinking into a morass of self pity and morose depression. I have papers to prove it! OK, not really, but sort'of. I keep trying to shake off this damned sense of humor but it just won't go away. I even quit taking my Happy Pills so freely give by the VA and the pissant thing sneaks up on me, like today.
We have in the last month started a podcast titled Godless Prophets.
Godless Prophets Podcast: a North Carolina based podcast dedicated to spreading truth and reason in society. We are in no way professionals or experts in philosophy or science. We are just two guys talking, sharing ideas with occasional guests.
Both of us have different backgrounds when it comes…
This was just too funny. Don't we all just love those insane individuals that ruin the image of theists everywhere? This is taken from the site of a church which may well be the next incarnation of the Westboro Baptists: "The
disgusting, lewd little toys from the Toy Story movies use their tiny legs and arms to crawl up from the hot-rocks (pixars) in Hell and peek their demonic heads into the doors of Hollywood producers…Continue
No, seriously. I'm not. Not Ever. The FBI told me I'd be jailed as a terrorist if I attempted stand-up comedy. Because I'd bomb so bad. I'd be a human bomb. Like a suicide bomber, but comedic in intent instead of socio-political.
I'm not often bothered by it. I'd never publicly whine about it. I may have no ability at giving "teh" humor, but I can still LOL and :-) with the best of them.
I'd only lament it if my balls were being burned off with… Continue
This is one of the funniest real sites I have ever seen. Technically, it not funny, but really serious for the fundamentalist believers. But the atheists see the irony/comedy in this site, and the foolishness the underlying beliefs are based on.
You've committed your life to Jesus. You know you're saved. But when the Rapture comes what's to become of your loving pets who are left behind? Eternal Earth-Bound Pets takes that burden… Continue
I started compiling the list over the summer, and now it is finished. I have a list of 100 NEW Questions for Christians. Okay, so maybe someone has used these before. But they are not the usual questions atheists approach theists with (or respond to theists with) like the Problem of Pain or the immorality of hell (or genocide or having rape victims marry their rapists, etc.) These are new questions like, what does God think of abortion? What would Jesus do? and Are gay dolphins sinning when… Continue
I was in the kitchen this morning making breakfast and accidentally knocked over some stuff on the floor (as I am prone to do). In jest, I turned my face toward the ceiling and shook my fist, "Curse you, Newton, and your theory of gravity!" To which my dad said, "It's not a theory, it's a law." I then explained, with good humor and reason, the scientific definitions of "theory" and "law," and how they differ from the common, everyday definitions. My dad's head spun a little. He's one of those… Continue
Over at Angie the Anti-Theist I've got a lot uncommented posts. Those make me sad :( So I've done a few things to make it easier for non-Blogger members to join in the conversation. I'm using the Intense Debate comment system, allowing anonymous posters, and I've switched my blog to accept GRAvitars.
I thought this was like an onion piece, until I found it on CBS's actual site. Now I need to ask myself, did a whole town get together and say 'fuck the news, we're gonna pull this prank while the iron is hot."
I mean, I think these people are laughing at the camera man. Honestly, though, this is… Continue
Hey all, this same piece is posted at my blog, Good Reason News, but there you get a hilarious video as a bonus for visiting. As always, I'm happy to discuss, explain or correct anything. Thanks for reading.
Actor Jason Alexander, Seinfeld's 'George Costanza,' is pushing a program he created, called Imagine: 2018, in which… Continue
