I have been running this website for ten years and in that time, my friends, I have said everything there is to say about not believing in a god at least 80 times. Long ago, I arrived at a place where I felt like a broken record, and the passion for what I was writing had fizzled out. But I knew I still loved you. I love interacting with you. I love having a place to go to dump all the thoughts running around in this overactive head. I love that you engage with those thoughts and validate them at every turn. Together, we have built this small community that is supportive, uplifting, funny, sma ..read more

Fight The Anti-Science Trend by Raising Critical Thinkers

by Courtney Heard
4M ago
One of my biggest fears is that one of my kids will be drawn to the dark side and start riding for the extreme right Christofascists who are working hard to threaten democracy in North America. Of course, this fear is entirely irrational because I've raised my babies to be critical thinkers, and now that they're older and one is an adult, I can see that they are. That doesn't stop me from worrying about it, though. I've seen so many people I once adored go down that path, and now they're driving diesel trucks down the highway, flying Canadian flags and "Fuck Trudeau" banners with their measle ..read more

Building a Community: How Atheists Connect with Like-minded People
Godless Mom Blog

In a world where the majority still adhere to some form of religious belief, atheists often find themselves in a unique position when it comes to community building. The absence of a unifying belief system or a central religious institution means that atheists often have to take a more proactive approach to connect with like-minded folks. It's just not as easy as going to church every Sunday, right? You gotta put yourself out there. It's a challenge, especially when making friends as an adult is already harder than Han Solo after Darth Vader turned him into a consolation trophy. So, I've put ..read more

10 Tips For Debating Religion As An Atheist
Godless Mom Blog
by Courtney Heard
5M ago
Debating religion as an atheist can be akin to walking a tightrope over a Nickelback concert. One misstep, and you're in the shit. In my opinion, it's not really a route to truth but more of an intellectual dick-measuring contest. Often, it descends into bickering about the minutia of holy texts, which is my no-no zone. For me, a lifer atheist, the Bible means as much as what Kate Middleton is wearing to her fancy fuck-the-poor ball, which is to say it means sweet, fancy, fuck all. In my eyes, debating the Bible's far-fetched yarns can be compared to debating which character has a longer tail ..read more

The Role of Science in Shaping Atheist Beliefs

Atheists all love science, revere logic, and celebrate reason, right? You might think every atheist has a poster of Darwin in their living room and worships at the altar of Neil deGrasse Tyson, but hold onto your test tubes – it's not that simple. Science - The Atheist's New Deity? Picture this: an atheist waking up, kissing their framed picture of the periodic table, and reciting the scientific method instead of morning prayers. Sounds about right? Well, not quite. While it's true that many atheists are big fans of evidence and reason (shocking, I know), not all atheists are die-hard science ..read more

In her book "For Small Creatures Such as We," Sasha Sagan delves into the beauty and significance of rituals and traditions, presenting a secular perspective that finds wonder in the natural world and human experience. I know it's shocking to find out that some people have rituals and traditions that don't include a magic man in the sky, but it's true. Drawing inspiration from Sagan's approach, I want to explore the art of creating secular rituals and traditions, highlighting how they can offer meaningful, enriching experiences without any silly superstition or magic. There is Value in Ritual ..read more

A Very Quick and Quite Silly History of Atheism

by Courtney Heard
6M ago
Which came first, the gods or the lack of belief? Just how far does atheism go back? There's really no way to know which human in history was the first to live without belief in deities, but that's not going to stop us from glancing back at atheism throughout human history. It all started back with the Flintstones. 1. The Ancient "Wait, What Are Gods?" Era Back in the really old days (and I mean, 'writing on cave walls was the new Twitter' old), humans were just figuring out fire and the wheel. Amidst all this, a few brave souls were probably too busy surviving to even think about deities. Ath ..read more
