Good luck with that, Larry

Larry Moran offers an interesting challenge: I challenge all theists and all their accommodationist friends to post their very best 21st century, sophisticated (or not), arguments for the existence of God. They can put them in the comments section of this posting, or on any of the other atheist blogs, or on their own blogs …

Open thread on episode #676

Matt and Jeff in our last 90 minute episode for a while. I’m in the middle of listening right now. There appears to be a problem with the podcast, because annoying music keeps interrupting the audio. It might be coming from another studio or something. Now this is ticking me off. 30 minutes into the …

No longer a friend of the center…

Rather than writing a long post, I’ll just link to Jerry Coyne’s comments as he and I seem to perpetually be on very nearly the same page. http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2010/09/25/cfi-declares-war-on-atheists/ I’ll be speaking to CFI Tampa on October 16th. I plan to talk about whatever they want to talk about and I have no intention of walking …

Then some days, we just get emails that are this awesome

Yeah, this one is Christian spam, but it’s one of those instances where you wonder if the person sending it to us honestly thought that offering us a link to a sure-to-be LOLtacular Christian online novel would be just the sort of outreach we atheists had been awaiting, to finally soften our hardened hearts against …

If you’re at your computers, I guess you’re already sitting down for this…

Word has just come in that The Atheist Experience‘s time slot is, for the first time in its 12 year run, being shaved from 90 minutes to one hour. I haven’t yet heard when this change will go into effect. There’s already a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth about this on Facebook, but …

Removing blog roll for now

That neat little widget that used to appear in the side bar, which scrolls through a list of other atheist blogs, is gone for now. It was causing some false reports of malicious software on some browsers. We’ll keep an eye on this site until they come up with a solution to put it back.

Open thread on show #675

Okay kids, here’s the fight cage for today’s show. No time tonight, but Monday at some point I will post my email conversation with Troy, so you can see what led up to today’s final call. Enjoy. Oh yeah…arrrrrrrrrrrr!

Viewer Mail: Are There Other Gods?

I’m not posting the writer’s full letter because he is an atheist who wrote to ask how we might reply to a theist he encountered. I provide sufficient input to give you an idea of the claims he said were put forward: >…[to an atheist] there are no concepts of evil and suffering. Well, that’s …

Open thread on Non-Prophets 9.8

It just occurred to me that I mentioned the new episode was up last week via Facebook, and of course you podcast-savvy listeners have already heard it. But for those who only rely on the blog for new information, you may not know that there is an all new guerilla episode featuring Lynnea, Jeff Dee, …
