Good news! (Stay with me here, now.) From Northern News Service Online:
After 34 years, Bishop Benjamin Arreak and a team of Canadian Bible Society translators, including Bishop Andrew Atagotaaluk, have completed the project of a lifetime: translating the Old Testament to make a complete Bible in…
Nevermind crazy pseudo-theocratic North Korean regimes that wish to invade them using incursion tunnels. Nevermind that this extremely isolationist rogue state has nukes and rocketry advanced enough to deliver certain nuclear incineration death anywhere in their country.
In our top news, Hurricane Irene has been pounding the East Coast like Ron Jeremy on speed. American icon Glen Beck was quick to offer reassuring words to those suffering in the wake of the tragedy saying “How many…
In our top story, the Arab spring has reached a new level of success for freedom and democracy in the Middle East when the regions most violent and oppressive dictator, Allah, was captured in a bloodless coup. The disposed deity was tried at The Hague for crimes against humanity.…
To avoid feeling powerless about all the crap going on in the world, I sometimes turn a blind eye to the 'news' of dreadful events. I feel some shame in that, but I have enough problems dealing with my little life, and I do what I can to promote atheism, free-thinking, reason, science, critical thought, wonder, etc.
So, I don't know all the details about what's going on in Iran, except I know it's bad bad shit and I wish it would stop, but I don't know what I can do to… Continue
So I was watching the news this morning and I saw a story about 3 boys in their early teens that recently found a dead body.

I'm sure most of you are internet savvy enough to know about places like Digg and Reddit. Well, I was unaware until recently that there is a place called "The Atheist Spot" which is a community news generated community for stories of particular interest to atheists.
Fundamentalists news websites, how I love thee, especially WorldNutDaily. WND never ceases to provide amusement in the form of fundie logic and wacky advertisements. Claiming itself as a ‘news source’ this beyond right-wing rag makes Fox news look like the Disney Channel. I used to get pissed at the B.S. they sling but I’ve come to embrace it for what it really is; satirical humor. Some people can take this stuff with a grain of salt and some can’t, so steer clear if you’re easily aggravated by… Continue
