Brad Cecil, the Apprehensive Agnostic

Think Atheist, meet Brad Cecil, who's "pretty much a heathen, a skeptic, [and] an agnostic" from North Carolina. Nothing out of the ordinary here.

Now, Think Atheist, I would like to introduce you to Brad Cecil, the agnostic who wants to observe the power of prayer. He is asking 1,000,000 people on Facebook to pray for him, so he can see if prayer actually works. So far, there are only 81… Continue

Internship Seminar Comments and Suggestions!

Hello my lovely heathens!

I wanted to open up a space here to get some constructive criticism and suggestions on internship positions at Think Atheist. For those of you who don't yet know, I have become the first official Think Atheist intern, and have been helping Morgan out behind the scenes getting a lot of grunt work off the ground for the website. However, one of the goals I assigned to myself as a part of my work here was to help design a more dedicated internship program to… Continue

WHDH Boston Make Fools of Themselves about Atheist Ad Campaign

Here's the article and a link to the website, where you can also watch the newscast which aired last night:

Atheist group releases ad campaign on Boston subways:

"BOSTON -- A controversial new ad campaign hitting "The Hub" is encouraging people to "stop believing."

Ads promoting atheism are showing up on many Boston MBTA trains and some commuters are wondering if they go too far.

"It's not my viewpoint but it sounds like it's the viewpoint of others,"… Continue

Merry Winter Festivities! Or, keeping the "Christ" out of Christmas

Halloween is upon us, my fellow atheists, which can only mean one thing: the holiday season is about to open up, leaving us with packed malls, congested highways, and perhaps a few more notches loosened on our belts. Being atheists, however, this can present a problem for us. Whether it's Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza, Diwali (which I know has passed, but is in the same time period and will fall on Nov 5 next year), Yule, or whatever obscure winter holiday your family or friends may observe, this… Continue

I'm coming back, just like Jesus will one day, too!

Hello my fellow Atheists!

I hope you all are doing well. I don't want to make this seem as if everyone was mourning my absence from the site for the past few months, but I did want to apologize from falling off the face of the planet for a while. Life gets in the way of plans, sometimes, and I had some things to deal with outside of the internet, and as a result my work on the site and with Morgan, Chelsea, Cara, and the rest of the team came to a standstill. I'm just writing a… Continue

Regina Spektor "Laughing With" as Lead Single

Ok, I admit it. I have a problem. A problem which makes me completely sucked in by female, piano-brandishing musicians. Tori Amos. Fiona Apple. Regina Spektor. It's kind of my thing.

One thing about the former and later of those three songstresses, though, is that they often (especially Tori) talk about religion in their lyrics. Regina uses it more for story-telling, as that's more her lyrical style in general, while Tori uses her songs as a way to criticize religion (all of you… Continue

Atheist Delivering Post-Rapture Messages for Christians,0,1981214.story

Is it just me, or is this kind of a low thing to do?

Think about it. As an atheist, you're already making it publicly known that you don't believe the rapture is going to happen. Yet, here you are, taking these people's money anyway, for an event you know will never happen. Granted, we could say the Christians shouldn't be paying him for this service in the first place, but… Continue

Make War, Not Love: Violence, Sexuality, and Christianity.

"Could you read the back of this box and tell me if there's any sexual content in this movie?"

The woman across the counter from me holds out the DVD expectantly, and I take it. It's Saw II, part of the now 5-movie franchise which makes a point of being unnecessarily gory. I locate the rating so lovingly bestowed upon the film by the MPAA.

"It's rated R, for gore, violence, and language mostly."

"But no sex,… Continue

Don't Serve the Christians on a Sunday

Link to the article here.

This is unbelievable. They believe that the Sabbath should be kept holy and won't pay these people to work, yet expect service from them anyway? I wish they could have been kicked out, but hat probably only would have brought on a law suit. I wonder is the Christians would have made an attempt to contact their lawyer on Sunday, too, but tell him he would only receive… Continue
