The Oakland Rapture RAM report – part 3

I’ve already covered the entire event, but I skipped over my favorite part because it deserved a post of its own: the people. From the moment I walked in the door on Saturday, I was met by friendly faces who were happy to be there and happy that I was able to show up. Over …

Notes on episode 710

Yes, we know the video link isn’t working. We’re working on it. Specifically, Don says we’re shifting to a new server. So I’ll add an addendum to this post when there’s a workable video to view. A couple of notes on some things that a few viewers have emailed us about, regarding how a couple …

The Oakland Rapture RAM report…part the second

The billboard, like the people who paid for it, were still there on Sunday… Continuing on with Saturday’s speakers… Ashley Paramore from the Secular Student Alliance did a great job educating us on how to better connect with campus groups.

You can’t reason a person out of a position…

“They’re the crazy ones, not us!”

Harold Camping’s May-21-Rapture nonsense is so ubiquitous that there’s no point in doing anything other than rolling with it at this stage. American Atheists will be holding Rapture parties in several cities. Matt is attending one in Oakland, in fact. Meanwhile, Tracie and I will be on the show Sunday, holding down the post-apocalyptic fort …

Non-Prophets episode 10.11

Two weeks ago there was a great disturbance in the atheist community, like a million voices crying out in unison, then suddenly silenced. They were reacting to the news that it would be an estimated four weeks before the next official Non-Prophets episode would air. Luckily, the guerrilla gorillas have been hard at work to …

On public arguments

Today’s email comes from Mark in Colorado. I work in a Defense firm where everybody is either a fundamentalist Christian or Mormon. I got into a discussion with a mormon guy who is always spouting some stupid shit. Anyway, I confronted him about his ideas and after a few minutes of discussion he realized I …
