Is atheist activism counter-productive? (Spoiler: No.)

cypher-with-piece-of-steak-in-the-matrix

This post is a response to an email I received concerning an argument between two friends, both atheists. One of them is presenting the other’s claim that it’s not worthwhile to actively promote atheism, because even though religion may be false, it gives people comfort and motivates them to work towards worthwhile social causes. My …

Online atheist forums

The Atheist Experience gets a lot of email. Way more email than we can possibly respond to. In some cases, one person will write to us many times, seeing us as a sort of atheist pen pal. Although I enjoy filling that role sometimes, most of the time we’re stretched too thin to be a …

Mail bag odds and ends: Which God don’t you believe in?

This is just a minor email topic that came up, and probably familiar territory to most viewers. Even so, it’s been a while since we posted anything that wasn’t an announcement or an open thread, so here’s a topic to chatter about. This exchange was actually kind of long and tedious, because the person kept …

Open thread on AETV #830: Christian extended universe

Russell and Lynnea Glasser, together with a big old book of Irish Folklore. The old stuff is canon, yet the new stuff is relegated to forever be just fan fiction. What makes it less credible? One creationist caller was totally willing to take seriously the idea of giant snakes, faeries, and a really stupid devil …

Measles outbreak is caused indirectly by anti-vaxxers. Mormonism is in trouble because of the internet. A skeptic leader in India is murdered. Some …

Proving light exists to a blind man

Email: How would you respond to a Christian who says “Just like light cannot be proven to a blind man, God must be experienced to believe.”? I feel like I’ve already addressed this question before, at least on the show, but I can’t find it on the blog. When I googled the question, I found …

Apologists: only dudes can have good reasons to be an atheist

A few weeks ago, Hemant Mehta hosted a guest post on his blog: “The Atheist Daughter of a Notable Christian Apologist Shares Her Story.” The post was by Rachael Slick, daughter of radio host and CARM founder Matt Slick. Viewers of our show may remember that both Matt Dillahunty and I, in two weeks running, …
