Carnival of the Godless #77 is up at The Skeptical Alchemist. My piece this time around: Why Religion Is Like Fanfic. My favorite other piece in this carnival: My biggest problem with Biblical morality by C. L. Hanson at Letters from a Broad. (Pertinent quote: “Let me be very clear: There is no context where genocide is right. Even if God is standing right in front of you offering you eternal paradise as a reward for murder and hellfire if you refuse. There may be just causes for going to war, but ‘I want their land and my God wants their treasure’ is not among them.” I loved this — especially given my recent adventures with Senor McGenocide Pants.)
And I’m hosting the next Carnival of the Godless! I lucked out and got the coveted Halloween edition, on October 28. Godless bloggers who want to get in the carnival, please use the submission form. Thanks!
