“Explore God” and you’ll explore existential despair

Hey everyone, Martin here. Nice to see you all again. HT to my buddy Amy Angela on Facebook for the heads up on this. Nothing quite illustrates the hopelessness and futility that having a deeply religious mindset inculcates quite like the Explore God movement. A recent post on their Facebook page asks the basic question …

Open thread on AETV 835: Matt flies solo

I believe this is what you call an “own goal”

So I’m guessing that when the Republicans threw a diva fit and shut the government down, they were hoping it would hurt Obama and the Democrats…but weren’t expecting it to hurt their own most ardent supporters as well.

Open thread on episode #829: The kinder, gentler AXP

A couple of days ago, we got another email from an atheist, chiding us about what big meanies we are on the show. It was the usual tone-trolling thing: “You will surely admit that your show creates a great deal of anger and resentment in many of your viewers.” Why do guys like that automatically …

So we thought, we have this new building and all, let’s use it!

We were dead. But we got better.

And reviving a certain long-dormant podcast that we all missed seemed just the thing. Yes, beginning August 7, The Non-Prophets returns with a biweekly schedule on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. Jeff Dee returns to the host’s chair, with Denis Loubet and Russell Glasser in support, with occasional participation by Martin Wagner …

Open thread on episode #823

Have at it. It never ceases to amaze me how often we keep having to go back to “Atheism is a religion too!” and “Why don’t you just call yourselves agnostic?” Cripes. Doing this show for a decade and a half, and every week still manages to feel like you’re teaching a remedial course in …
