Humanist Symposium #8: Interlocking Ruba’iyat

Humanist Symposium #8 is up! This may be my favorite blog carnival of all: it’s the carnival dedicated to discussing and celebrating atheism as a positive, fulfilling worldview, and to defending the philosophy of humanism. The hosts were kind enough to include my pieces Is Atheism What Makes Happy Atheists Happy? and Good Cop, Bad …

Friday Cat Blogging: Kitten Feeding Time Mosh Pit

My cousin’s wedding last week was held in a barn, and there was a mother cat living there with four kittens at maximum cuteness age — about six weeks, young enough to be tiny and fluffy still, but old enough to be playing and gamboling about. We took a million pictures, but this is my …

Male Dom Female Sub: The Blowfish Blog

Note: This post, and the post it links to, has a fair amount of sexual content: not about my personal sex life per se, but about my personal fantasy life and my tastes in porn. Family members and others who don’t want to read about that: Now would be a good time to disembark. I …

“I can’t disprove the existence of Poseidon…”

This video had me on the floor laughing. Not quite literally, but almost literally. (Video below the fold.)

Carnivals: Feminists and Liberals

Carnival of Feminists #45 is up at Feminist Philosophers. And this slipped through the cracks while I was on vacation: Carnival of the Liberals #47 is up at Plural Politics. I didn’t get in the Big Ten this time, but they were kind enough to include my piece Is Atheism What Makes Happy Atheists Happy? …

Good Cop, Bad Cop: Atheist Activism

This piece is about the current atheist movement – but I think it applies to almost any movement for social change. There’s a lively debate in the godless movement about how we should be going about the business of atheist, agnostic, skeptical, humanist, and other godless activism. Some, like Richard Dawkins and PZ Myers, favor …

Defending Disruption

I’m still on the road, and am too tired to write anything new, so here’s something from the archives that I think will be new to most of you. I wrote this in 2003, at the beginning of the second Persian Gulf War, when anti-war protests seriously disrupted traffic and business in San Francisco for …

Carnival of the Godless #75

Carnival of the Godless #75 is up at Ain’t Christian. (My carnival contributions this time around: Does The Emperor Have Clothes? Religion and the Destructive Force of Asking Questions, and The Argument From Design — Now With 40% More Cosmology! Or, Why David Hume Rocks.) I’m still running around like crazy with my family in …

Skeptic’s Circle #69

Skeptic’s Circle #69 is up in two different formats: an entertaining Old West narrative for those who are entertained by such things, and a Plain Jane “here are a bunch of links” format for those who are either less whimsical or less patient. Thanks to Unscrewing the Inscrutable for hosting, and for including my pieces …

Seeing Jesus On Drugs

Please bear with me here. I’m (a) a little travel-worn, and (b) doing something I swore I would never do, which is blogging drunk (we just had an amazing dinner with my brother and my aunt and uncle, and both wine and after-dinner drinks were involved.) So if I’m not my usual articulate self, please …
