Open thread on episode #785: Quantum quack attack

Sorry about the quiet week, gang. I think we all have a lot on our respective plates. Plus, everyone who attended the Texas Freethought Convention last weekend was pretty beat afterwards, I suspect. Anyway, today’s show was a feisty one! Predictably enough, I thought of something I could have asked our “the universe is a …

Texas Freethought Convention, with political thoughts

Lynnea Glasser and protester at the Texas Freethought Convention

I had a great time at the convention yesterday.  I was a bit of a lightweight, only putting about six hours into it and not sticking around for the keynote speech (Sorry, PZ!  I’m sure it was great!) or the pub crawl afterwards. Picked up PZ Myers at the airport at 12:30 on Monday and …

Open thread: In which Stephen Feinstein talks to himself

Stephen wrote a post entitled “Debating the Atheist — My Closing Comments.”  Of course, he previously agreed that his closing comments would be the fifth post, but that doesn’t matter, because Stephen had to award himself the final word.  Besides, he doesn’t expect you to read it.  He drew this to my attention in a …

This surprised me in light of the recent imprisonment of Alber Saber, in part, for expressing atheist views. During that conversation, I asked, “Are you OK to be openly atheist there?” He replied, “No, not really. I …

Feedback from Sunday’s show…

Let’s make today’s e-mail a GREAT one. I directed a caller on Sunday’s show to my take on the Sermon on the Mount. He was, admittedly, a searching deist with Christian leanings – but he was still of the opinion that the New Testament was an improvement and that there were merits there that elevated …

Atheist Experience #782: They Don’t Believe That With Matt Dillahunty and Don Baker.

It’s election season. Time to dust off the Christian Nation myth.

I haven’t given much thought to Sally Quinn for several years, since I last read dead tree newspapers regularly, in the hoary pre-internet days of college.  Now what the hell is this thing? Romney captures the God vote at first debate When Mitt Romney mentioned the “Creator” in the debate Wednesday, he owned it. “We’re all children …
