Last night at Threadgill’s

All right all right, I hyped up the surprise at dinner after the show, so I feel like I should just get it out and not wait on pictures to surface. The Everything Else Atheist and I are now engaged. There, I said it. In a highly unconventional move, since we are godless heretics who …

“You’re just trying to put a unicorn in my mouth!”: Open thread on 12/13 show

Thought it was a fun one today, even with our original big surprise having to be pre-empted. Have at it, gang.

Alert canceled :(

I seriously apologize for getting everyone interested and then yanking the rug out, but the idea we had for the show had to be postponed at the last minute. Hopefully it will run on January 10. However, the post show dinner is still going to be interesting, and not even Martin knows why.

Heads up for the Atheist Experience show this weekend

Let this be a teaser to all you viewers out there: Something unusual is happening on the show this weekend. It is my guess that it will either be a successful something that will make this a widely discussed show, or it will be a spectacular flame-out. Either way, you won’t want to miss it. …

This holiday season, shop at “naughty” retailers!

Better call the waaaaambulance. The “War on Christmas” is in full swing in fundieland, and the first casualties are rolling in. Or not. Got an email heads-up tonight about the “Naughty and Nice 2009″ list cooked up by the American “Family” Association. Right-wing fundamentalists absolutely love their collective persecution complex. It’s the only thing they …

News reports today revealed that Cynthia Dunbar, R-Richmond, has decided not to run for re-election to her seat on the Texas State Board of Education. As …

Okay, so now that we’re all agreed we don’t play nice…

Via PZ and WikiLeaks, in case you hadn’t seen this bit of timeless comedy gold, you can now download Kent Hovind’s entire “doctoral dissertation” for “Patriot Bible University,” a farcical Christian outfit housed in a doublewide offering correspondence courses. If the above is an example of what “Patriot Bible University” considers an acceptable lead-in to …

We don’t play nice

Basically this post could be a big “What PZ said“: The notion that there is anything “new” about “New Atheism” other than having the boldness to speak out is ridiculous; but the notion that there is a newer, better atheism that doesn’t like to make waves against religion is far more ridiculous. I am occasionally …

Wasting your life?

We received a letter from a theist who sent us the following question: I came across [a Youtube Video] where one of the gentlemen on your show said that spending time, “in prayer or in church is a waste of your one precious life”…If atheism is correct and the end of life is oblivion of …

Question for readers on publishing email

So sometimes, as you know, we get email. Sometimes we publish the email. PZ Myers has been doing it for years. And before I was a blogger, I used to publish every piece of email that I got from my web page response to Amway. (I no longer do this, but I’ve set up a …
