Sorry I’m late with this, but I noticed some people wanting to comment on the recent show with me and Jeff, so I thought I ought to put up a thread. If you didn’t see the show, here’s what you missed: (Thanks for the Photoshop job, Eik!) I want to mention a point about one …

What casual remarks reveal about theism’s view of the world

I’m writing this on Monday, but have delayed the scheduled posting of it for a few days, in that I do think there’s such a thing as inappropriate timing. Some folks may still think I’m off base with this one, and that’s fine. In the wake of the horrific shootings in Tucson the other day, …

Sex and Religion survey

OK, everybody, it’s time to help out Dr. Darrel Ray by filling out a survey on a couple of my favorite subjects: religion and sex. He needs as many responses as we can get, so I’ll be posting this all over – and let’s try to make sure that this is one area where women …

Authentic Supernatural Experience or Fail? You Be the Judge.

I am presenting this viewer mailer in his own words, unedited, and not even including my own rebuttals in order to avoid biasing any of you in some way to my opinions. I insert one clarification into a response I made that he includes in one of his replies, simply to make more clear what …

Teen Challenge Ranch—Pentecostal Rehab

I was contacted awhile ago by Tyler, a young atheist living in a Christian town in a Christian family surrounded by Christian friends. Not an uncommon story. At the time he was struggling with coming out and concerned about potential loss of his social support network and how others would react to his deconversion. Since …

What would a weekend be without wacky email?

LOVE! Could be Poe-y but it’s par for the course for the real crank ravings we get. And he even does the usual thing of signing off his ridiculous rant with “have a nice day!!” Just golden. Hi my name joe Williams I’am writing this email , because I just have to say this because …

You mean all I had to do was lick a Bible?

Some happy news today. Shelley just emailed all of us. We’ll have working phones on Sunday. Things are moving fast on the AXP hoodie front. The final design will be tweaked to feature only the red AXP logo; that way, people will have to ask you what it means, and you can spread the godless …

The professional victim squad is patrolling again

Okay, let me get this out of the way first: Dude in the commercial totally looks like me. It’s uncanny, but it’s not me. Pause the video at about 20 seconds to see the guy. (You can thank viewer Tommy for bringing the video to my attention, Tris from Facebook for setting the relevant images …

Email question of the day: “So I take it you have no argument against marriage between two consenting adults, even if these adults are, for example, brother and sister?” It’s the question of the day because it sent me off to do a bit of research on incest in order to challenge/re-affirm my position. (Freedom …
