Baby-eaters of the world, unite!

Just an amusing bit of edible art…nothing more. Edit: I wasn’t skeptical enough and didn’t check this out – evidently they’re made of clay and not marzipan. Still – if someone could make them out of marzipan, you might have a market!

Ray’s idea of justice…

Ray wrote: “…would you want Dahmer to go to Hell? Or are you quite happy (assuming that you are an atheist) for him simply to be dead.” Since he’s censoring many of my responses, here it is: I’m not Alex, but I’ll answer. I’m satisfied that Dahmer was imprisoned for the remainder of his life …

The unofficial Atheist Experience response to Zeitgeist

So many people email us asking if we have seen the online movie “Zeitgeist” that we’ve had to come up with a stock response to people so that we don’t have to keep explaining why it sucks so much. Matt has been sending this response to emailers, and I have gotten his permission to repost …

Ray’s threat of hell…

Can’t we kick Cynthia Dunbar to the curb yet?

Good grief. If it weren’t bad enough that this woman is a far-right wing space muffin who actually thinks Barack Obama is in league with terrorists, now we find out that this person who sits on the Texas State Board of Education, for fuck’s sake, has actually written a book (I hope she got a …

The FFRF Christmas sign, and why it’s a bad atheist message

For those of you still dubious about Ebert…

…he has just delivered unto Ben Stein pwnage for the ages. Some choice tidbits. Hilariously, [Expelled] argues that evolutionists cannot tolerate dissent. If you were to stand up at a “Catholic and mainstream Protestant” debate and express your support of Creationism, you would in most cases be politely listened to. There are few places as …

Proud dad

Yesterday my son Ben, age 6, brought me Dan Barker’s “Maybe Right, Maybe Wrong” and told me he had read it. I hadn’t asked him to. He just found it in his bookcase and started reading, and apparently finished the thing on his own. I was a bit skeptical since I’ve never yet known him …

Kirk Cameron, ACTOR!

I want to give a shout out to this great post on Slacktivist. Fred has been doing a long critique of the “Left Behind” series of books, and he’s recently turned to the first movie as a break from reading. I thoroughly enjoyed his merciless critique of Kirk Cameron as an actor. Here’s just a …
