My contribution to "We Are Atheism." Go tell your coming out story, and offer some words of encouragement to those who are still in the closet or on the edge!
...in which I babble about reddit and steam, take a look at the history of "Alabama Atheists and Agnostics", and offer a behind the scenes preview of my upcoming SSA conference presentation. It is a potentially amusing and enlightening read, unless you're blind. I haven't quite worked out blogging in braille yet. To all of the blind readers out there, I'll get back to you once I've figured that out. Also, I am suspicious of your condition if you are, in fact, reading this.

After much ado and an unhealthy dose of procrastination, I have finally updated my webcomic/blog. Check it out! It has stick figures and the best special effects that a free copy of MS Paint can buy!
For all of you rabid fans out there, Happy Atom merchandise is available…Continue
...I'm kicking off a web comic! It is based on the true stories and exploits of a college Atheist group in the Deep South running an "Ask an Atheist" table.
For all of you Douglas Adams and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fans, here are a couple of his other notable works: two serials from the long-running, classic British sci-fi show Doctor Who. Both of these serials are from what is considered the golden age of the show: the run of Tom Baker as the 4th incarnation of the eccentric, eponymous Doctor.
If you've never been exposed to the classic series of Doctor Who, these are great ones to come in on. The…Continue
For those of you heathen sci-fi geeks out there, I've got an old gem for you here. From all the way back during the Tom Baker years of Doctor Who, here is "The Face of Evil". This serial is far from bashful in its criticism of religion. If you've got some spare time and a flair for camp, this is a great one to check out. I particularly love Baker's sly banter with the Voodoo Priest character; you really can't miss it.
There are plenty of other old Doctor Who serials with…Continue
The Atheist/Agnostic organization at the University of Alabama is about to do some controversial chalking on the school's campus. We're expecting a little buzz about it. Here's a little preview for the Nexus.
1 Tim. 2:11-14
Shouldn't women be allowed to teach?
Think about it. -AAA :D
Seems a bit excessive, hmm?
Think about it. - AAA :D
1 Corinthians 14:34-35
Shouldn't women have an equal…
In this segment of "The Twilight Zone" and Atheism, I'm going to take a look at one of the program's most popular episodes: "Time Enough at Last".
For those who have not seen this classic episode, it follows a thick-spectacled man who is obsessed with reading. He works as a teller at a bank, where he is frequently sidetracked from his duties because of his reading habit. When his boss brings up the issue, he explains that his wife won't let him read at home. His…Continue
... j/k, it isn't what you think.
I recently entered a film contest with some fellow heathen buddies, and we created this short film. Keep in mind, none of us had any significant film experience beyond armchair criticisms.
It is a dark little apocalyptic film. Hope you…Continue

Follow me, fellow heathens, back into a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. Join me, here, in the Twilight Zone.
In my second installment of "Twilight Zone and Atheism", I'm going to take a look at one of the most famous episodes of the series: "It's A Good Life".
This particular episode focuses on a town crippled by fear, as many TZ episodes do. What sets this particular one apart, however, is what the townsfolk are afraid of: a child with…Continue
To start off, I'm on a Sci-fi kick as of late. I've already posted a little bit about TZ and Atheism, but now I want to move on to my greatest sci-fi love: Doctor Who.
For those of you out of the loop, Doctor Who is one of the longest running television shows in history, and is personally my favourite import from the British Isles. The first season aired all the way back in 1963, and nearly 50 years later (save for a hiccup in the 90s) the show is still running to a…Continue
So, I'm currently taking a course exclusively on "The Twilight Zone" and how it pertains to American culture. For those of you who don't know, TZ ran from 1959-1964, an era that was a stones throw from the height of McCarthyism. Anything considered liberal was vis a vis under the umbrella of communism. This was not a good time to be a free-thinker of any sort. Yes, this covers the Kennedy era, but this was a time in which being a catholic president was considered a progressive step…Continue
Start off by linking to my other, older, far more oft used social networking sites.
I'm also on le reddit, for you /r/atheism peoples.
