The Atheist’s Way: A Guest Post by Eric Maisel

A while back I mentioned the book, The Atheist’s Way: Living Well Without Gods written by my friend Eric Maisel. Today, as part of Eric’s blog book tour, I’d like to present a guest article by the author and a few blurbs about the book from other atheist authors. I hope you’ll take the time to check out this book. I think it’s time for secularists, atheists, humanists, ... »

Christian No More: A Guest Post by Jeffrey Mark

Over the past few years, I’ve been reading spiritual memoirs, specifically de-conversion stories about how and why people left their faith behind and stories about people who changed faiths. One of these books was Christian No More: A Personal Journey of Leaving Christianity and How You Can Leave Too by Jeffrey Mark. This book is more than a memoir; while it does contain Mark’s story... »

Killing rats with religion…

Well, not about a book but about a TV show. I recently discovered comedian Demetri Martin. Holy crap is this guy funny. I really can’t find anything to say about this video. I guess he’s not religious. Anyone know if perhaps he’s a skeptic? Or is he just a smart ass? Either way, here’s some comic relief for your Sunday viewing pleasure. Creedocide, Harness the power of rel... »

When Whales had Legs

This isn’t a book, but I wanted to point it out anyway. I’ve been watching a cool show on National Geographic TV.  It’s called Morphed, and it’s all about evolution. There are three episodes so far. I’m not sure if it’s going to be a longer series or not, but these three are worth seeing: When Whales had Legs From Dinosaur to Turkey Before They were Bears If yo... »

Purple State of Mind

Earlier this year, I introduced you to John Marks and Craig Detweiler when I briefly mentioned John’s book, Reasons to Believe. John, an unbeliever, and Craig, a Christian, have been working together on a project called “Purple State of Mind.” They have blogs, a film, and a book (by Craig) with that title. The Purple State of Mind is all about the American culture wars, about pe... »

Charity or missionary work?

My brother in-law and his wife have started a new charity with the goal of ending poverty in their area of Florida. I really want to support them, because I think this is a very worthy goal. The thing is that they are born-again Christians and pastors of an Assembly of God church. This immediately makes me suspicious of ulterior motives, so I posted this message on their Facebook page: This is gre... »
