Bat Cruise weekend, A Better Life, and episode #780 open thread


Man! What a week. Things have been busy here in Austin Town. First, most of us spent days early in the week doing our individual photo shoots and interviews with Chris Johnson for his book project A Better Life.

Theists Have the Best P.R. Machine Ever II

In keeping with my request in Denver, that people work on making sure theism and theistic religion have a reputation that is at least aligned with what they actually subscribe to and promote, here is part of an exchange I had with an “agnostic” (read: atheist who doesn’t know he’s an atheist), who was arguing …

Open thread for AETV #779

Audio Video (not available yet) Silly show with Russell and Jeff, multiple calls about what “spirituality” means.  And a creationist who thought that Kent Hovind was the most bestest scholar ever. I think there will be a new Non-Prophets airing on Tuesday at 9 PM central.  Keep an eye on Matt’s YouTube channel, which is where …

Theists Have the Best P.R. Machine Ever.

At the Denver meeting, one thing I did was encourage other atheist anti-theists to step up and make sure other people–especially those who weren’t raised in religion–understand the doctrines that are taught within religion. With that in mind, I’ve been doing more of it. When I see a person promoting a religious doctrine that is …

Why people with brains laugh at Fox

But at least Texas is BIG AND WHITE!

This morning, some douche called in a bomb threat to the UT-Austin campus, necessitating a brief but certainly nerve-wracking and exasperating evacuation of buildings. The all-clear has since been sounded. In reporting this breaking story, Fox News also revealed that Arkansas has been renamed Missouri, and that Alabama and Mississippi switched places overnight. If we …

Atheism+: Social interaction in atheist communities and elsewhere

Yep, it’s another post about Atheism+.  Just because Jen McCreight is on vacation to take a break from being trolled and harassed, doesn’t mean the rest of us still aren’t interested. First things first: There’s a new episode of Godless Bitches.  Have you heard it?  You should hear it, it is made of win.  Beth, Tracie, …

Are people being murdered because of trolling?

By now most of us have heard about this film Innocence of Muslims, which has sparked riots claiming the lives of several people, one of whom was no less than the U.S. ambassador to Libya. The cruel punch line to all of this — because it’s already common knowledge that Islamists are psychopaths who will …

I’m writing this before coffee, so I hope it’s not too riddled with typos or grammatical weirdness. And that’s as much apology as you get. This is an open thread about yesterday’s program. However, a few points about Eric from Mesa, AZ. [...]

Matrix Apologetics again?

Guy emails us today: If we cant trust our senses, how can we know for sure whats real or not? How can we justify saying we are sure that something exists and that we arent minds in a vat? This is obviously solipsism, but I was told by a christian that unless I believe in …
