FFRF sues IRS for allowing flagrant electioneering by religious nonprofits

I just wanted to put this initiative on the community radar and wish FFRF good luck with this. Churches have been ramping up electioneering and becoming more and more open about their pushes for candidates and parties. They use a very simple code that should fool no one. They swap out “Intelligent Designer” for god. …

Egypt from the Eyes of an Egyptian Atheist

Recently, an Egyptian atheist, wanted to share information with me regarding a link to a site for Egyptian atheists. 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 …

Atheist asks for ideas for dealing with religious people who hate god

We received an interesting question to the TV list, and one I don’t know if I’ve actually heard before. The core of the matter boils down to this: “My point is that it was through reason that I ultimately rejected the faith that I was brought up in. I wish I could say that this …

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 …

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 …

Open thread for show #778

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. [...]

Lady Godiva and a Forgotten Lesson about Honor

Do you recall the story of Lady Godiva? Most people recall an image of a woman with long flowing hair, on horseback, naked. But less people are actually familiar with the legend behind the image. In summary, the good Lady was married to a greedy tyrant who exacted painful levels of taxes from his subjects. …

I want to be Howard Wolowitz when (if) I grow up

Kazim asked me to repeat some thoughts about the sexism issue in the skeptical community. He’s right that it’s not fair to let him, Martin and Matt take the heat on the AXP side, while addressing these issues over at Godless Bitches, as if AXP isn’t part of the skeptic community and this issue. So, here …

Open Thread for Show #750 – Matt & Tracie

This is the open thread for the program. No topic, just calls. Caller Eric, from AZ, most fun. Can something come from nothing? Can there *be* nothing? If it *is* or *was*–then could it have actually been nothing? If nothing does exist, does that mean it’s something? If nothing cannot be (as Eric defined it …
