Don’t harsh my narrative with sexyfun!

This is amusing, though darn it, I wish I’d captured screenshots before the inevitable happened. (Some folks say they have done so.) So this youth minister, who does the usual thing of framing moral issues strictly in terms of self-denial and guilt, writes a blog post in which he says, among other funny things, “I …

Don’t be a Dick – new from Jezebel!

Over at Jezebel, there’s an article on how to be an atheist without being a dick about it. Ironically, I have yet to read an article or hear a talk about atheists being dicks that didn’t include a few examples of the author or speaker actually being a dick. Lindy West is not an exception. …

Fighting evil by promoting the good

Addendum 2/Postscript: Kickstarter has (take note, CFI) issued an apology, owned their failings, and put new policies in place to ensure such a project as described herein never darkens their doors again. Still I encourage everyone to get behind Advantageous (and heck, even my little thing, if you like). Original post begins: In case you’re …

Additionally, Martin referenced some YouTube videos debunking claims of advanced scientific information in the Koran. Here is the promised link to the YouTube channel.

Open thread on episode #814

On the schedule today are Matt and Tracie. As cohost, I need to talk here about what I’ll be talking about. Depending on call volume and what Matt’s in the mood for, I’d like to do another dice demo to examine the statement “X is possible,” and what we mean by that. Is god possible? …

Open thread on episode #813

So today it was Russell and Matt, taking, among others, a call from a repeat doof who apparently thinks knowledge works by simple assertion. Oh well…as usual, below is where you say the things you think.

Open thread on episode #812

Today, Jeff and Martin (that’s me!) did the show as host and co-host for the first time in at least ten years! It was an absolute blast, we had a number of very good calls, and the technical glitches that occurred — no opening music or background graphic — kind of made the whole affair …
