Atheist News Podcast Project




Hey guys.

I probably shouldn't put this off anymore, so I'm just going to jump on it and improvise. I'm pretty sure the show is over. It was a ton of fun doing it, but with work and my son and my wife in school I simply don't have time to do it anymore.

Other folks have offered to take over but I don't really feel comfortable with that. Quit while you're ahead, sez I.

Anyhow, I payed for another year of hosting, so the archive of podcasts will be available for at least that long.

I really enjoyed podcasting, so I might do something again in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks guys and gals! It was AMAZING.

Love,

--Joe

"I Facebook *and* I Nexus."

Same here. We're posting NINJAAAAAAS!
Comment by Jo Jerome on September 13, 2010 at 1:13pm
I Facebook *and* I Nexus.

Plus, I don't know about you NoSacredCow, but on Facebook I choose my own 'friends.' E.g.; much of my Facebook friends list is made up of fellow Atheists. I know people who maintain two or more different profiles; one for Theist friends and family, one for non.

The few friends I do have that are Theists, or friends of theirs I end up conversing with via their posts ... I try and keep it polite but firm. Have gotten into some decent discussions with Theists. Not sure if any minds have been changed, but a lot of loud mouths have gone silent in the apparent face of my relentless and pesky 'facts.'
Comment by Susan Stanko on September 12, 2010 at 1:51pm
I guess I do as well.
Comment by Glenn Sogge on September 12, 2010 at 1:46pm
@NoSacredCow: Apparently I resemble that remark ;-( Maybe I should resign here ...
Comment by moJoe on September 12, 2010 at 12:19pm
umm regarding the recent email. MoJoe I don't Facebook I Nexus.

Facebook is for theists...


I couldn't disagree more. Holing up over here and pretending the rest of the world doesn't exist will simply serve to further remove us from the whole. Competing for awareness in the public sphere helps us spread our message of rationality. The Nexus is an oasis and a place to come together with like-minded folk; Facebook, Reddit, Digg, et al: that is where the battle to change public perception is being fought.

the beauty of the unexplainable... is that it remain unexplained!

Yup, what you said in your longer post, Mike. There's a time when one approach is better, and there's a time when the other is.
Comment by A Former Member on August 30, 2010 at 2:25pm
I just don't even try, to be honest. If they are ready for the truth of reason, they will seek it out on their own.
