Dream diary, 9/23/09: The Paul Newman progressive ice show

I dreamed that I was doing an ice show about progressive political issues with Paul Newman. As the big finale of that day’s show, to represent the fight against global warming, I was supposed to skate across the length of the ice rink as fast as I could, ending with a flying leap, and catching …

Adam, Eve, and the Problem of Evil: Or, Free Will Was Whose Idea Exactly?

I’m reading Robert Crumb’s Genesis. (Great book, btw. Review coming soon.) Which means I’m re-reading all of Genesis, for the first time in a little while. And all these things are jumping out at me that I either hadn’t noticed before, or that hadn’t quite sunk in in a visceral way. (There’s nothing to make …

“I Don’t Want to Want What I Want”

I have a new piece up on the Blowfish Blog. In it, I talk about one of the most common themes that shows up in the sex advice columns: people with sexual desires that they desperately wish they didn’t have. I ask why it is that people with sexual desires that are ethical and consensual …

Atheist Memes on Facebook: The “100% Certain” Mistake

I’m starting a project on my Facebook page: The Atheist Meme of the Day. (BTW, if you’re on Facebook, friend me!) I’m getting a little tired of making the same arguments for atheism over and over again… and I’m hoping to get the general public more familiar with the basic concepts of Atheism 101, so …

“There Has To Be Something More”: Atheism and Yearning

Does there have to be something more than our everyday existence? And if so, does that something have to be God? Or indeed, anything supernatural? There’s a curious argument that gets made a lot by theists. It’s often called the “God-shaped hole in our hearts” argument, and it goes something like this: “Human beings have …

How Dare You Atheists Make Your Case! Or, The Fisking of Armstrong, 123

Why are so many believers so strongly opposed to the mere act of atheists making our case? Why is so much anti-atheist rhetoric focused, not on flaws in atheists’ arguments, but on our temerity for making those arguments in the first place?

“People Are Fascinated By Sex Lives”: Greta’s Interview With “Outrage”‘s Mike Rogers

I have a new piece up on the Blowfish Blog — and I’m extra- excited about this one. It’s an interview with Mike Rogers: best known as “the most feared man on Capitol Hill,” a dogged investigative reporter and blogger known for outing closeted gay politicians who campaign against LGBT rights… and the star of …
