Steamroller. We are unstoppable.

I told you that freethoughtblogs had Maryam Namazie. But did you know we also got The Black Skeptics? And that John Loftus and Richard Carrier have signed on (blogs to appear soon)?

Every atheist in the world is going to start their day right here, aren’t they?

    re no 3 – ditto!

    Not only do I start my day here, I’m having trouble getting out of the house most days.

    I hope so!

    Ooh, Maryam Namazie & Black Skeptics have finally showed up in the sidebar. And the main FtB page. Excellent!

    I do think the FtB page could do with some work. New blogs go to the bottom; increasingly you have to scroll down to see them, so they are less prominent than the early arrivals. The old Sb page of new posts – last 24 hours – was really good that way: no priorities by who signed on first, just whatever’s been posted most recently, and you could be quite surprised and discover new and interesting things.

    Loftus and Carrier? Big scores!

    Yes, but I think Ed Brayton was trying to keep those names secret for the moment. PZ’s so naughty!

    Best part of waking up is Freethought in your blogs.

    “Every atheist in the world is going to start their day right here, aren’t they?”

    What, there are some who don’t already?!?

    Not as naughty as the sexy Ophelia. I read about Carrier there ours ago.

    Already where I start my day. I mean, this is all for me, right?

    Richard Carrier!

    The front page will be totally redesigned soon. As for PZ letting the cats out of the bag, we shall administer the usual punishment — two hours of watching the 700 Club.

    Richard Carrier!

    Yeah, that’s cool and all, particularly so from my perspective, as my interests and his overlap to a large extent. But I sure hope he takes the platform as an invitation to post more often than he does currently.

    cm's changeable moniker (quaint, if not charming)

    I start my day with coffee. Nothing–even FTB–makes sense until there is coffee.

  21. 21

    JOhn? Excellent.

    we shall administer the usual punishment — two hours of watching the 700 Club.

    Feeding PZ blogging/rant material is punishment? Hey! That lion’s been naughty! Give him a steak!

    Anyways, welcome to the new additions!

  23. 23

    Yes! Yes! This is perfect for Carrier and I’m sure Loftus will be glad to get rid of whatever old thing he was using for DC.

    One small warning though: Loftus in particular attracted a lot of Calvinist creobots. The really creepy kind who “feel” dead inside and like they’re missing a heart. Think David Marshall but less animated and more sociopathic. Or, if you hang out in apologetics chat rooms (why?!), Zilche. Basically a small army of Piltdown men *rolls eyes*

  24. 24

    I’ll be here every day for John Loftus’ blog.

  25. 25

    And don’t forget ‘ the atheist experience ‘ who have just moved to FTB : )

  26. 26

    These blogs are the last of my “regular” sites each day – because these are sites which cause me to think. Not that I’m always that good at it, but I keep trying. And I often come back 2-3 times later in the day as time permits. I can find refreshing viewpoints, errors in my own thinking (gasp!), and often well-phrased comments that help me in countering some of the stupidity posted by the reality-challenged.

  27. 27

    FTB? Nobody goes there any more. Too much traffic.

  28. 28

    Mr. Brayton, I would love to see Dr. Carrier’s associate Dr. Hector Avalos brought on to FtB!

  29. 29


    Hell yes. I’ve wanted to read his book for a while (was scared off by a few low-star reviews on Amazon though). The two of them together may be the ones to offer the definitive pathway away from the Abrahamic religions for the modern age.

  30. 30


    I don’t know, Ed. Switching so often between rage and hilarity might cause PZ to sprain something. Are you sure the punishment fits the crime?

  31. 31

    Think David Marshall but less animated and more sociopathic.

    I do that and still get David Marshall…

    The Ys

    More talented writers?

    I will never get anything done ever again. Woot! :D

    Nor have I. I’m living on coffee and chocolate (for the caffeine).

    Is this another one of those “1000 year reich” thingies?

    Now when someone disagrees with us, we can dismiss them as misogynistic AND racist! We love being a freethinker!

    Asshats! Asshats! Gecher asshats right ^^here^^ !

    I don’t bookmark much in this world, but I’m on this one.

    Hector Avalos is also part of Debunking Christianity (John Loftus’s blog), so I’m sure we’ll see him here.

    @31 Kel — ha! *giggling wildly*

    with a cast like this, were else can a day be started.

    Next, we need Larry Moran.

    Nice to see the new additions. But as long as we’re talking about the FTB stable… does anybody know how Comrade Physioproffe came to be part of it? It appears to be a blog about poor spelling.

  42. 42

    Afternoon, actually. Different time zones, I guess.

    Could it possibly be a bad thing that we are rounding up many of our vocal bloggers in one area. I know that it is great for us, and those trying to find a solid resource. But, doesn’t it feel like we’re closing ourselves off from the community at large? This site can easily be filtered (through technology and theological ‘back buttons’).

    Don’t get me wrong, I love FtB. But I also know how to use a book mark. I don’t really see us getting *that* much attention and causing too much of a stir if we’re locked in our own part of the tubes.

    But maybe that’s not our goal.

    Testing… Getting ready for Loftus’ move to FTB…
