Atheist Ink

As a former tattooist, I retain an interest in ink. Last year, I met this guy, Darin in Illinois, and he had a cool idea for a tat. Check this out!  Darwin-fish, DNA, humanism, the American Atheist logo, the works. He even has the zopdoz of the apistevist! Nice! Thanks for sharin’ Darin. That’s how […]

A post-mortem on presuppositionalism

On Sye’s own website, ‘Proof that God exists‘, you follow a trail of questions set as dominoes erected to direct you to the desired conclusion: 1. Absolute Truth Exists: I chose yes, ignoring that knowledge will never be perfect or complete. It turns out that when presups ask this question, they’re only talking about whether […]

I am 3 of the 6 types of atheist, down from 4

I’m a little confused at the new study of ‘Six Types of Atheist’, because I am half of them. I fit their criteria for #1 the Intellectual Atheist, #2 the Activist, and #4 the Anti-theist. Personally I thought there were more categories than that, but the others I’m thinking of might all belong to category […]

What would an actual extra-terrestrial most likely look like?

When I first saw this fantastic color-enhanced electron micrograph image of this millimeter mite, I didn’t recognize it. At first I thought I was looking at something shown at actual size, and that it might be an experiment in man-made robotics. This thing does not look like an natural animal; it looks like it’s made […]

head-desk apologetics

Last night on the Dogma Debate podcast, I had to endure another tedious round of verbal tennis with Sye Ten Bruggencate. His sole notoriety is that he actually endorses what has to be the least logical of all possible positions with regard to truth and knowledge. It is the fallacy of the circular argument routing […]

What religion has contributed to the world this month

This is a shout out for a YouTube channel by the name of ConversationWithA. You can also find them on their facebook page, Religion Hurts Humanity.  Now I’ve never talked to these people. I don’t know who they are, or anything about them. All I do know is that they regularly put out a video […]

The Secular Party of America

Last March in San Francisco, I had the honor of addressing a few highly-motivated activists who started a brand-new political party, the National Atheist Party. As hard as this might be to believe, there were a few people who were uncomfortable with that name, many of them were atheists! I recognized their concerns, as many […]

Unpopular Perry

Roughly 1,000 people had signed up to testify against the abortion bill being pushed through the 2nd special session of Perry’s personal agenda, but only about 10% of those people were actually allowed to speak. So a coalition of independent agencies put together a petition requesting senators to hold public hearings across the state. Yesterday, […]

Conference in Columbus

This coming weekend, July 12th thru 14th, I will be at Ohio State University for the eastern half of the Secular Student Alliance annual conference. The ‘western’ conference was last month in Las Vegas -where TAM will be going on at the same time that I’ll be in Columbus. I used to live in Lost […]

Tired of homeschooling Nonsense-in-Genesis?

Hey there home-school parents! If you’re already stocked up on snake oil and miracle elixirs, or you’re just tired of paying some old con-man to lie to your kids, if you’d rather they learn truthful knowledge they could actually use, then take off those blinkered and blinding Bible glasses, walk out of Ken Ham’s creationism […]
