My Atheism Search Engine now searches 548 atheist websites, and it’s growing. Find out what atheists have to say about Obama, sex, faith, Buddhism, charity, cosmogony, evolution, wisdom, dating, deconversion, the meaning of life, morality, Play-Doh, miracles, Pat Robertson, Oprah, pseudoscience, porn, the iPhone, pizza, humanism, naturalism, the books Who Really Cares? and Mere Christianity and Warranted Christian Belief, and much more.

Someone has mistaken me for “a philosopher.” My work here is done.

Greta Christina: What can the atheist movement learn from the gay movement?

Either atheism is true, or God is an asshat.

Does anybody else think that Al Jazeera English handles world news way, way better than CNN or BBC? Listening Post and Fault Lines are especially helpful.

Alonzo Fyfe reassesses desirism and his moral life so far.

What would a philosopher be defined as? I always presumed it was simply someone who loved wisdom and consequently sought to think hard about issues of truth, knowledge, morality, etc. You seem to be quite qualified for that title, in my opinion.

Lucas,

I know the Letters Series with Tom didn’t end well, that you and the other guy capped it from the outset at 3 a piece and you and Mark are still currently going back and forth. What is the deal with the Vox series and are there any other in the works or that I’m forgetting?

It is time for Alonzo’s superb moral theory to run the gauntlet of peer review. I am confident it will result in nothing but good things for him. Once the creme de la creme of moral philosophy have meticulously examined every fundamental axiom, every meaningful proposition, every inference and every dusty inch of the underlying framework of his theory, it will be propelled into it’s rightful place as a hallmark of moral philosophy.

Alonzo wishes to make the world a better place, so doing this must be an absolute imperative for him. The endorsement of other moral philosophers will assist him in cantilevering his theory out to the masses.

Jake,

The Vox series is ongoing. It will be moving at a slower pace now. He’s waiting on me.

Didn’t know there was such an ability by google. Cool idea to have an atheist search engine. Unfortunately, my blog is not on that search engine. :D

Godlessons,

As you appear to be an atheist, I’ll add you in the next round.
