“But, Dude, You Must Believe in Something”

Update- 4/15/17  So, after a 4-hour conversation with my son’s classmate’s father I decided that I had to update this story from a couple weeks ago. Rather than enjoy my Spring Break alone, I had the pleasure of babysitting my 2 1/2 year old son and his classmate. Fortunately, his school/daycare closed for a week […]

Diatribes Vol 2 from Noah Lugeons

Everyone, please grab a copy of Diatribes Volume 2  by Noah Lugeons from The Scathing Atheist podcast. I just ordered mine from Amazon; it will sit nicely next to my autographed copy of Diatribes Volume 1! Hoping to get Vol 2 signed by Noah at ReasonCon in Hickory, NC April 21-22.

“Daddy, Look, It’s a Lowercase T!”

Am I wrong to think that should be an important commandment (along with rape, slavery…)? Christianity? Hell no, just ask the Catholic church. Judaism? Nope…when God commanded Moses and others to pillage towns, […]

Suspension of Reason and Critical Thinking

“Fundies” refers to religious fundamentalists of any religion- Christianity, Islam, Judaism, to name a few. It blows my mind how educated people can suspend reason, critical thinking, and the scientific method and actually believe the Noah story in the Old Testament is fact. While reading an article about newly VP-elect Mike Pence, my mother-in-law balked […]
