Sunday Morning Services

Good morning to all my miscreant atheist friends!  Special blessings to those of you returning after having been here for our initial Sunday morning service last week!

As always, today’s sermon will focus on answering some of life’s most perplexing questions.

Who are these children who scheme and run wild and why do you tremble each time they ride by?

Sunday Morning Services

With apologies to my dear friend @Jerry_dewitt, Author of ‘Hope After Faith‘.  It’s not his fault that most of America (and half of atheism) is heavily creeped out by his innate southern Pentecostal mannerisms and is still searching for the ultimate expression of an evangelical free atheist communal experience.  I’ll be writing my own companion addition to Jerry’s book. Working title: Fun After Faith

Our Mission

The creative geniuses in my Advanced English Expressions Department, along with a big assist from The Tim Channel’s Ecumenical Plattitudes Division, teamed up to solve one of the world’s most perplexing questions:

Why is it I can put on one sock while holding the other sock in my hand, and then suddenly decide to go on a search for my “missing” sock? Not Guilty This Time

Long frustrated by that unsolvable mystery, they were reassigned to the less Tim-critical mission of forming a new religiously unaffiliated congregation to pacify world religious angst.

Our Goal

Recapping Atheism Plus

Planet of the #fapes

The Atheism Plus contingent, aka American Girlyban, aka FTBullies are at it again.  Not content with bashing only the largest names in the movement like Richard Dawkins & Lawrence Krauss, they have now moved to male members of the skeptic community of somewhat lesser stature.  I remember when they invited Thunderf00t into their community just long enough to scalp him.  Matt Dillahunty obviously did not.  In fairness, he was probably busy that day blocking me from his Twitter feed for trying to comment on the absurdity of the ongoing Girlyban assaults.  I vaguely remember seeing a video shot from below the dash of his car where he waxed poetic on the joys of this new atheism.   I quit wasting time listening to his Texas podcasts since he was such a big prick. see also: PZ Myers)

Since I don’t stalk people who ban or block me, he was off my radar until he popped back up the other day on his own accord.  How did that work out for you Matt?  PLUS ONE to the list.  Ha Ha.  I TOLD YOU SO.

I left the following comment over at this site.

I am with you 100 percent.  Your observations on PZ are identical to what I have witnessed, and I WAS a longtime follower/commenter at his site for at least a couple years before he went off the rails.

You are not alone.  The list of personal casualties is growing longer and longer every day, but the blow to the very core of group logic was delivered last year by Rebecca Watson, with her ridiculous elevator guy screeds and rationalizations.  I was quick to come to the support of Richard Dawkins, when his cogent comments on the incident caused the “American Girlyban” contingent to attack him.  The attacks on rationalist males has now escalated to the point that they are shooting at their own MALE supporters.  It would be funny were it not for the damage to the people and movement that first embraced them.  I was not up to speed on Twitter when this first went down or I would have coined a shorter name than American Girlyban (though I do think it the best!!).  The hashtag winner was #ftbullies, and now #atheismplus, their self-selected handle, is taking hold.  Perhaps we could agree (to save precious character count), on a completely new hash tag that is even shorter?  Something that starts with AP and ends with ES would only take four characters, and be a nice aside to evolutionary biology.  After all, these freaks we are dealing with are most definitely a product of nature, every bit as much as the two headed calves we drop a quarter to glimpse at the State Fair sideshows.  #apes or #fapes (the f is for femininity as well as preventing possible backlash against a much more noble primate.)

Welcome to the new age era of “touchy-feely” atheism.  Finally, somebody has figured out a way to carve out a space where non-rational atheists can feel at home.
