The one (of many) where I’m threatened with Hell…

“Matt I heard you talk about your wedding night and how beautiful it was around 11/6 show.  How the stars were beautiful and a pretty clear evening.   And how the prayers of others to stop the hurricane did not prevail.  I have only watched about 30 mins of your show but I’m sure you spend a …

Why I am an atheist

Russell here.  I’ve been feeling left out of PZ Myers’ series on how people became atheists, but I thought it would be greedy of me to try to guest post on his blog when we’ve got our own.  So instead, I’m posting my own story here. My parents are both of Jewish cultural/ethnic backgrounds, with …

Back to the Future: the wedding

Lynnea as Clara Clayton, Russell as Doc Brown

Hope you’ll forgive posting this personal stuff here — Matt already did.  I promised I’d supply media from the event, and here it is!  I’m posting here instead of my main blog because half the guests were ACA friends, thanks for coming. We knew early on that we wanted to have a not-so-serious wedding, and …

Atheists of [your area here], unite!

Lynnea and I had a wonderful time in Orlando, doing all the stupid tourist things we could pack into five days.  If you want to see what we were up to, add me on Facebook for the photo albums, but first a word to the wise: Message me when you do it.  Just say something …

What does it mean to “legislate morality”?

Viewer Mail Question: What does it mean to “legislate morality”? Isn’t any and all legislation a form of legislating morality? It seems to me that if we did not legislate morality, there would be no laws. We’ve determined that undermining ones welfare and liberty are wrong, and have outlined certain laws to strengthen individual liberty …

save the date

Great Scott!  There will be no Non-Prophets again tomorrow, as Lynnea and I have a little appointment to prove that a wedding can be cuter, badder, sillier, and above all, SO MUCH GEEKIER than that little affair last weekend.  We’ve got no live stream planned or anything, but hopefully we can scrape together pictures and …

Recovering from Religion has a new Executive Director!

I’ve fallen behind on e-mail, (I was busy getting married) and so I’m late to the party on this. I’ll post the press release below the jump, but let me just take a moment to talk about how important this group is. Some of us have had an easy time freeing ourselves from religion and …
