Reasonable Doubts interviews Tom Rees of Epiphenom about Religion and Society, basically repeating and expanding on what I wrote a while back in What Causes Atheism?

Updated: 20 All-Time Most Popular Posts on Common Sense Atheism.

Moral action at work outside Wilson High School in Long Beach, CA.

How my six year old boy debunked Intelligent Design.

Exactly as I expected, Alexa.com says, “Based on internet averages, commonsenseatheism.com is visited more frequently by males who are in the age range 35-44, have no children, are graduate school educated and browse this site from home.” That means compared to the internet average. So it doesn’t mean most of my visitors have Ph.D.’s, for example.

Updated the 20 Most Popular Atheist Blogs again. By far the biggest gainer was Skepchick.

Great!

So, most of the visitors here are over-educated losers who obviously never go out and score any chicks.

Darius,

If so, you’ve just incriminated yourself. :)

I am in the process of being one of those men, but I am only 23 and I am still in grad school. Nice to know what the future holds.

Has “Debunking Christianity” maintained it’s position? I recently dropped this blog from my RSS feed reader. If I had to read another entry about his recent debate with Dinesh D’Souza I think my head would explode.

His blog aside, I’m enjoying John’s book.

BG,

I tried listening to that debate, but 3 minutes into Dinesh’s opening I couldn’t handle it anymore. He makes my head explode with the stupid.

Hmm. I guess I’m a rare person in your audience. I’m 52, female, married, lots of kids.

Yeah, I’m another minority — 57 yo, married, kids.
We know demographics affects the nuances of our philosophies — I wonder how that plays out here.

I fit only one of the above criteria, and I wonder that too—you know, I was surprised to see that other philosophy blogs showed up as having more FEMALE readers, which just makes no sense.

That six-year-old, by the way, was way more receptive than I was: “The sun came after light?” I would have never noticed that. In fact I didn’t, until a few months ago. I hope he’s an actual kid, but if not, that will just make me feel better about myself.

@ Luke
Remember to keep up-to-date on “MY favorite Posts” — yeah, “popular” is interesting, but I am interested in what you valued even if it is under-read. Thanx

The only thing that really surprises me is that the age range is older than I would have expected.

I wonder whether the demographics for atheists following this blog are the same as the demographics for theists.
