Faith Is Not a Substitute For Facts

I was reminded of this by some recent comments on some of my YouTube videos, where a theist disagreed with my  take on God and causality, insisting that all kinds of things about God were true when they had absolutely no way of objectively determining anything about God, God’s characteristics or God’s abilities. Now this […]

Will Christian Churches Perform Gay Weddings?

This is an interesting question that has come up recently and one that, depending on your view, you might have a very different take on.  Of course, since the Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage across the United States, religious organizations have vocally condemned it because, according to their religious beliefs, gay marriage is […]

Theists Have Nothing

I’m sure this is something that every atheist who ever takes on religion has seen, but it  still pisses me off every single time it comes up, as it has a couple of times recently.  You know, the theists who say “we have evidence, we’re just not going to show it to you because you’ll […]

Philosophy Isn’t Reality

To be honest, I’ve been struggling recently to find a lot of religious topics to talk about.  It’s weird, over on my YouTube channel, there is plenty to cover religiously but I can’t find anything political, but here the opposite is true.  I talk about political subjects non-stop and outside of Horror Show Sunday, I […]

Hiding Your Beliefs

I’ve noticed a new brand of hate-monger out there who detests homosexuals, but for entirely unstated reasons. They deny being religious, but also refuse to talk about religion at all.  This is a new class of debater who seems to think that if they hide their beliefs, the true source of their hatred of gays […]

The Constitution is not All

Got another one that got me in trouble.  I seem to do that a lot, don’t I?  Some crazy fundamentalist Christian libertarians started making a ruckus, claiming that because the Constitution doesn’t specifically grant the federal government the right to control marriage, the Supreme Court ruling is invalid and states get to decide who can […]

The Possible and the Actual

I’m sure you’ve heard that old canard, the one that goes “atheists are just as religious as theists because they have faith that gods do not exist!”  Yeah, I’m sure you’re rolling your eyes right now.  Anyhow, I’ve had one theist trying to throw a twist into the whole mess without actually understanding that their […]

Name-Calling for the Win!

I think it’s funny how many people think that just calling someone else a name will make whatever point they were making just go away.  I’ll point out that the religious have no justification for their religious beliefs, that they have no evidence for their gods and their supernatural claims disintegrate under even the most […]

Not How Reality Works

I find it funny, in light of other posts I’ve done recently, how the far right is getting just as bad as the far left.  It used to be, and maybe this is just my perception, that it was mostly the left who had a tenuous grasp on reality, but now I’m seeing it from […]

Assholes at McDonalds

I don’t know what it is about the local McDonalds, but every single time I swing by there in the morning to grab myself some breakfast, invariably I wind up sitting near some wingnut religious asshole who, in an extremely loud voice that everyone in the place can hear, pontificates to his friend about how […]

Making Excuses for Religion

I always find it absurd how many people out there, religious and atheists alike, will go to extreme lengths to make excuses for religion.  Religion is never the cause of anything.  Religion is never to blame.  Most recently, this has had to do with the San Bernardino terrorist mass shooting as I see people jumping […]

Just What Is Religion?

This is actually a more difficult question than you might imagine, lots of people with lots of agendas have reasons to claim that religion is many different things.  I bring this up because in a recent debate, a fundamentalist Christian kept insisting that atheism is a religion, which, of course, it is not.  So I […]

CoE Mad About an Ad

Oh look, it’s the latest example of religious entitlement, this time coming out of jolly old England.  The Church of England put together an advertisement that would never get shown on television, but now they are expecting movie theaters to show their ad and when theaters balked, they started crying it was a violation of […]

Why Do These People Have Jobs?

Seriously, I have to keep wondering, and this is almost always in the deep south, but why do these idiots have jobs? Why do the people in the south keep electing these morons to represent them?  Okay, yes, the reason is because the voters are just as stupid as they representatives they elect, but I’m really getting […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #2.30

Sometimes It’s Personal Marco Rubio thinks God is more important than the job he wants, Saudi Arabia desecrates corpses, a girl joins ISIS and dies and the Planned Parenthood shooting and Christian hypocrisy. Then we talk about Turkey and Russia and why religion ruins everything.  Now get over there and listen already!

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #2.28

Just a bunch of craziness, conspiracy theorists galore, speaking in tongues, Ben Carson making a little sense, Satanic rituals at Planned Parenthood, losing your religion on the football field and creationists running education in Maine. This week, I’m trying minimal editing, this is what the podcast really sounds like when we record, please let us […]

A Necessarily Limited Audience

I know that I’ve talked about this before, but I was recently speaking with a friend who wanted to know why I didn’t have a massive following, either here, with my podcast, or with my new YouTube channel.  Certainly, all of them have a decent following, get a decent number of hits and are all […]

This Is What We Ought To Fear

Of course, on the podcast, we talked about Theodore Shoebat and his batshit insane religious beliefs, and while some people might laugh off his extremist ways as entirely unrealistic, you have to remember that there are a small, but vocal minority of religious people out there who are completely on board with what he and […]
