Westboro Baptist Church Plans to Picket Funerals of the Eight Avalanche Victims in Fernie, BC

Those … well, there’s no cuddly way to say it. Those bastards at the Westboro Baptist Church are at it again. On Monday, eight men were killed in an avalanche in Fernie, BC while enjoying a day of snowmobiling. Fred Phelps and his band of deluded psychos wasted no time and issued this press release (page is a pdf) that… Continue

How To Come Out As An Atheist

I look at my search engine results quite a bit and have noticed that several people find my blog by typing in the phrase, “How to come out as an atheist” so I’ve decided to write a bit from my own experience for those who are seeking inspiration.



Step One: Realize you’re an atheist. This may seem to be a given but for the longest time people will have the knowledge that they don’t believe in a god and still label themselves otherwise. You’re an atheist. If you can’t share this with… Continue

An Open Invitation to Casey Luskin of the Discovery Institute

My dear friend Tiana had a fantastic idea. Since I'm going to be in Seattle this weekend, why not invite our old friend Casey out for drinks and a chat about our last visit? She sent him the following email this morning but we've yet to receive a response. I suppose he could actually be busy doing ... stuff.



"Hello Casey,

Shy Atheists, Bashful Skeptics

I am sure you know or have met somebody who thinks like this. You may, in fact, be one of these people I'm about to describe. If you are, I strongly urge you to consider what I'm about to say.



You're an atheist, but you feel that too many hard-nosed vitriolic cynics have given the label a bad name so now you refuse to refer to yourself as what you truly are. And yet. Yet, you could always make an effort to proudly assert that yes, you are an atheist but that you're willing to discuss… Continue
