Social Media is Strange

I know I recently wrote a post on how much I hate social media, but right after that, someone over on my YouTube channel asked me if I was a member of the “conservative atheist” group on Facebook.  Well, I had no idea such a thing existed.  I was the second member of the “conservative […]

Questions About Facebook

I know I wrote a while back that I was thinking about simply deleting my Facebook presence, I’ve never done anything about it, mostly because I find very little about it that’s useful.  I find the format of Facebook relatively useless for intelligent discussion, which is what I really care about.  It’s more built for […]

Facebook is Bugging Me

I hate Facebook, I have never seen a point to it, I’ve never thought it was at all useful, it doesn’t facilitate intelligent conversations and I fought having an account for a long, long, long time.  In fact, for as long as I’ve had an account, plus a page for all of my various and sundry […]

The Absurdity of Social Media

It’s funny but the more I look at social media and the more I partake in social media, the less impressed I am with it all. Take Twitter, for example.  Of what use is Twitter?  All I see is people throwing insults, retweeting endless memes, tons of pictures with famous quotes but nothing else, etc. […]

Too Dumb to Debate

I find it funny how much flack I get for saying that debating theists is a waste of time, but time and time again, I find that with the religious, its just pointless to engage in any kind of intellectual religious discussion, they just don’t comprehend the basics and dragging them, kicking and screaming, through […]

Danger of Shaming Online?

Consultant Adria Richards was at PyCon this year, a convention for Python programming language enthusiasts, when she heard some male attendees behind her talking about “dongles” and “forking”, some rather indelicate puns that made Adria uncomfortable.  Instead of turning around and complaining to the men, or going to convention organizers, she decided to tweet the whole […]

Who Cares About Famous Atheists?

I swear, the level of hero worship in atheism is just as bad as it is among theists.  If you watch Twitter for any length of time, you will see endless dripping praise for any well-known person who happens to be an atheist, or who makes any kind of non-religious statement, as though what someone […]

A Couple of Changes

As I’ve said previously, I am going to be making some changes around here and I wanted to keep anyone who cares up to date. I’ve created a new Twitter account, @Cephus404, specifically for non-atheist posts, I’ll typically do more geeky things there and any geeky-tweeters I was following before have been moved to this […]

To Tweet or not to Tweet, is that a Question?

Well, a week and a half after Twitter arbitrarily suspended my account without warning or notice, I finally got an e-mail announcing they had reinstated my account and a short explanation of why it was suspended in the first place.  It looks like everyone was right and it was a complaint of harassment by some […]

Who Has Time?

Got another e-mail today asking me how they could follow me on Twitter.  I had to explain that I don’t do Twitter, nor do I have a Facebook page, nor Google+, nor do I do any other form of social media. Seriously, who has time for all of that?  I barely have time to put […]

Social Networking Sucks

I just had someone ask to follow me on Twitter and was amazed to hear that I didn’t use it.  I also don’t use Facebook or any of the other newfangled social networking sites.  Why?  Because they all suck.  I have no interest in what they’re peddling. I tried the “Great Twitter Experiment” for about […]
