Patrick wants your opinion

Patrick Greene called in to the show on Sunday. The episode is now posted on Google and you’re free to listen to Patrick make his case (with interruptions and clarifications from your rather perturbed host). While we’re all aware that public opinion is irrelevant to truth, he’d like to hear from you. If you think …

Patrick Greene checks in

Patrick Greene, the San Antonio atheist who got all up in Ray Comfort’s shit about a stupid bumper sticker, has sent an email to us once again. (He also left a comment here, which I rejected, because it contained his phone number. After the Yomin incident, in which both his and Matt D.’s phone numbers …

An irrational atheist

Today a gentleman whose privacy I’ll respect by not revealing his name sent an email to the TV show address with the subject line “Victory for atheists.” I’m afraid it’s anything but. Indeed, it’s a textbook example of how to fumble the ball. The fellow in question had sent an irate letter to the Laurel …

A fashion statement

There are days when I feel like this. We should get a photo of PZ wearing one, and forward it to Bill Donahue. NSFW, BTW.

Aggressive Atheist Extremists

Maybe you’ve seen the PhillyCOR billboard recently? Floaty clouds on a blue sky, with the text “Don’t believe in god?” on top, and “You are not alone,” on the bottom. It’s an invitation to disenfranchised atheists to get in touch with local humanist, atheist, free-thought or secular organizations in their areas. And it’s as inoffensive …

Shalini in some kind of trouble?

Shalini Sehkar, whose blog Scientia Natura is full of hilariously foul-mouthed rants against “theistards” (she certainly embraces the “bad cop” role in atheist blogging with gusto), has been locked out — see for yourself — and some commenters over at Larry Moran’s Sandwalk are indicating that some theists have allegedly gone off the deep end …

Why do atheists speak out? This is why.

The post-Dawkins/Harris/Hitchens backlash continues as more petulant Christians come out of the woodwork with their increasingly desperate smears of the character of atheists. Here’s a typically asinine screed from some Christian prat writing for some news site in Arkansas. It was so full of perfect bilge that I felt compelled to take off the gloves …

Episode #512: Intolerance

I have gotten some requests for show notes on occasion. In response, I’m going to begin posting summary notes to the blog, so that when requests for notes come in, I can just point them here. Thanks, Martin. The word “tolerance” has two very distinct meanings that can, but do not always, overlap. One is …

Skatje Myers nailed it

PZ Myers’ teenage daughter explains two methods of successfully discussing atheism: It’s moderate atheists’ job to speak nicely to theists and get them to hear the message, but it’s the militant atheists’ job to get the moderates out of the closet and active. Do they scare away some theists entirely? Probably, but those are most …
