Even other atheists suspect non-believers are more likely to be immoral, study finds

Americans reflexively assume the worst about atheists, according to new research – and even other atheists share the prejudice. Participants in five experiments conducted by researchers at the University of Kentucky read a description of a person committing an immoral act and “readily and intuitively assumed that the person was…

Creationist billboards urge ‘atheist friends’ to learn how God built dinosaurs

Answers in Genesis’s Ken Ham placed billboards designed to “reach out to atheists” in San Francisco and New York City’s Times Square over the weekend. Ham’s organization runs a widely mocked creationist museum in Kentucky, and Ham himself is fond of insisting that humans aren’t related to apes. The signs…

The secret prayer-objects of atheists

Sigh. The one thing that makes a gleeful, Hitchens-esque pissing on Hitchens' grave less fun is all the god-botherers who are doing it wrong. I mean, I suppose we shouldn't be surprised, as the authoritarian conformists who exploit every opportunity to preen about their imaginary sky friend display very little…

Why atheists should defend All-American Muslim

I'm a little disappointed that none of the atheist blogs I read have addressed the controversy over Lowe's pulling their advertising from the show All-American Muslim, after being deluged with mail from a bunch of hateful Christian bigots. Now, there's nothing I hate more than people trying to score points…

Atheism is an idea more than an identity

Back from Skepticon and still trying to catch up! Fun was had by all, mostly because of the onstage talks and offstage conversations, but there was a very exciting incident that also happened during the conference.  For those who can't read it, it says "Skepticon is NOT welcomed to my…

Skepticon update

Sorry no CSA post this week—I’m traveling. Specifically, I’m in Springfield, Missouri to attend Skepticon. (I spoke yesterday for an hour on feminism and skepticism.) Lots going on, and I’ve only just now started to organize my thoughts on it. I think the biggest revelation to me has been the…

And who’s protecting my right not to be offended?

The title is a direct quote from this WND article arguing that atheists should be denied their freedom of speech to protect the delicate sensibilities of fundamentalist Christians who apparently will lose their faith the second someone looks at it sideways. Her justification for this is that it’s only fair…

Right wing slams White House for meeting with atheist ‘hate groups’

Some conservative commentators are accusing the Obama administration of inviting “hate groups” into the White House by holding a meeting with a coalition of secularist and atheist groups. Officials from the Justice and Health and Human Services departments met Friday with representatives of the Secular Coalition for America, an umbrella…

Another Papa Ratzi eruption: atheists are responsible for environmental destruction, global warming

Give me a flippin’ break. In a sanctimonious and erroneous speech of epic proportions, “On Development That Respects the Environment,” the Prada Papa Ratzi takes a brief break from his incessant homo-bashing to give a swift kick of blame to atheists for sending the world into hell in an environmental…

Atheists in the house, throw your hands in the air, ’cause you count now

Agnostics, non-religious and openly anti-religious people, too. Hey, I can’t be the only person who had a “holy shit” moment when Obama recognized non-believers in his inaugural speech. Nor can I be the only one bracing myself for the wingnut outrage, since there’s so much effort dedicated to vilifying atheists…
