The Greatest Black Atheist was the original subtitle of this podcast as a whole.
When I first started, that was how I branded myself and that was the type of news and commentary I wanted to bring to the table.
Now I'm all over the place, but this year, I'll be gradually going back to that place of representing Black Atheist visibility with a leftist, social justice slant.
Today we'll get into some news about a Chinese man that paid for a spa treatment with his daughter...
Like really. He used his daughter as currency.
Sandy Rios attacks evolution and I respond.
The voters are getting sued for voting.
That's right. If you vote against red light cameras that can be used as a revenue generator, you will see your day in court.
And of course we have nonsense in social justice and I'll jump on that in the second hour.
Let's get to work.

I hear so often that the angry atheist isn't helping the movement. Being angry doesn't help our position or cause. It doesn't push the conversation forward. It doesn't help move people away from faith or belief. It only serves to fortify the religious in their rut of superstitious ideas.
Or does it? When I was a believer, I got angry at all the caustic atheists, and wanted to prove them wrong. Doing so moved me to atheism. I realized that the jerk may be a jerk, but he was also right.
Let's talk about the different ways people talk about atheism and within the atheism movement. Are the mean, angry atheists helping?
Plus your calls. Let the awesomeness wash over you.
"You only want to be an atheist so you can go on sinnng!" Ever heard that before? There is so much wrong with this question, I want to do an entire show on it.
Do I want to be an atheist? Is sin the reason? What sin? Why would anyone think this?
I'll give my perspective.
Plus, your calls. The awesomeness is in your hands.
Prominent Atheist, Richard Dawkins, admitted to God’s existence or at least to a very small chance that God exists. This admission took place in a debate with Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury. This debate was not what was expected of two men deemed to be polar opposites on the existence of God and evolution. Not only did Dawkins give the nod to God’s existence but the Archbishop apparently agreed with evolution. If these two men, who are highly esteemed and notable in their achievements in opposing arenas, can come to agreement, is this an indication that we all may some-day come to similar conclusions? Listen in as the Brothers in The Virtual Living Room discuss God’s existence and evolution.
Please feel free to phone into the Virtual Living room with your comments or questions. We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Mon 8:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Thu 8:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am. All times are Eastern Standard Time.
So many people think that atheists are all scientists or at least have an advanced understanding of science, but that is not true. However, just because someone does not have an affinity for science, does not mean they cannot accept the science that is out there. Just because someone cannot work out a complicated scientific method, does not mean they cannot look at life rationally.
Please join us Sunday 10AM CST as we discuss the hate crime that took place this week. For those unaware, three Muslim students were murdered over an alleged parking dispute. The murderer entered the home of the students and killed them execution style. The media and police are hesitant to call it a hate crime. The atheist community are attempting to distance themselves from this matter. I am seeing 'No True Scotsman' fallacies everywhere.
I find it interesting that when it's a white person, they are judged as individuals. People are claiming that this domestic terrorist was mentally ill and a lone wolf. However, people of color are judged as groups and made accountable for the actions of individuals. This double standard has been prevalent in this community.
We will discuss how the atheist community has created and cultivated a toxic environment. We have been calling this community out about the Islamophobia, racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.; yet, it has not been addressed. The mainstream atheist organizations have ignored the warning signs and have even attempted to make excuses for the bigotry.
We spoke about this matter extensively on our TwitterChat and you can find more details here. We want to continue this much needed discussion. There will b more discussion on this in the future.
The dial in number is 310-982-4273 and press 1 to speak with the hosts.
In this reairing (repeat) episode, blogger Sacerdotus speaks on the recent tragedy in Chapel Hill, North Carolina where Craigs Hicks, a "militant atheist" and devotee of "new atheist" Dr. Richard Dawkins executed three young Muslim students. Hicks executed in cold blood: Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, Yusor Mohammad, 21, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19 - See more at: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2015/02/atheist-kills-young-muslims.html#sthash.1lMfPTt1.dpuf.
The crime has sent shockwaves across the world, especially among atheists who often claim that atheism is a peaceful movement as opposed to religion which they claim causes war and death. Despite local law officials calling the crime an isolated incident over parking spaces, the possibility of it being a hate crime has not been ruled out. The federal goverment is investigating the crimes for possible charges of hate since Hicks' personal views on Facebook and in person exhibit hate towards God, religion and religious people. Sacerdotus gives his input on the tragedy and speaks on the psychology behind Hicks and atheists in general based on available research.
