Happy Sunday, Unfollowers!
How are things? Personally, I’m a little bit anxious about the election because I feel like, no matter who gets elected, things will be pretty rough for a while. I guess we’ll find out next month.
I decided to get out of the house, so I went to the bookstore the other day. The atheist/agnostic section was tiiiiny, and the ENTIRE BACK WALL was bibles. The whole Christian section was ginormous. Anyway, here’s what I came away with:
I’ve been listening to The Blind Watchmaker for a couple of weeks and am almost done, but I was happy to find the paperback for just a couple dollars. Have you read any of these?

Watch Party Tonight!
Sunday, October 11th at 7pm EST, I’ll be hosting a watch party! We’re going to be watching “God’s Not Dead.” All you need is your own Netflix account (and the watch party Chrome Extension https://www.netflixparty.com ). I’ll send out email invites around 6:30 tonight.. It’ll just be us and a chat box to talk about the ridiculousness taking place on screen.
If it goes well, we might start doing these monthly!
The Manipulation of Witnessing
Kristin (@cynicghoul) on Twitter shared a tweet with me that was eye-opening. It’s about how the people who try to spread the gospel are really being manipulated to feel rejection and, thus, cling to their tribe, creating an “us vs. them” mentality.
Check out the tweet HERE. There’s more to it than just that screenshot above.
Kid Yells at Street Preacher
I can only imagine how upset Christians would be if they saw this video. They’d talk about how disrespectful this little girl is and “how could her parents let her do that?” But I love it. Nobody who is just minding their business wants to hear this moron with a microphone.
It reminds me of when I was in high school. We used to go cruising (my hometown has nothing to do), and there would be street preachers on the corner yelling that we’re all going to hell. So, in short, fuck this guy and everyone like him.
Watch the video HERE.
@science.jesus.memes dropped some fire on Instagram.
Such hypocrisy, right? And so much truth. It reminds me of evangelicals’ arguments against evolution. They’ll say something like “you REALLY think we evolved from another species?” Their own personal incredulity keeps them from trying to actually understand. But, at the same time, they’ll say something like “Intelligent design is obvious” and state it as fact.
Anyway, the arrogance makes my head hurt. I’ll leave you with one more example of arrogance in the form of this dude:
I hope you have a great Sunday!

I have shirts, mugs, face masks, and stickers available at my store. I also just added a hat.
