Welcome to A Load of Bright and Carnival of the Godless 76. I am your host and humble author Tobe38, and I hope that you have arrived here well. Let me tell you, there’s nothing that annoys me more than a carnival host who, instead of just introducing the articles like he should, shamelessly […]

I’m following on from a good idea started by Migrations, which has been carried on by Why Don’t You Blog among others, I’m posting the entire Atheist Blogroll (Mojoey’s highly successful project). I agree with them that this is a good way to increase everyone’s Technorati and search engine authority. 1 2 3 Religious […]
The 8th Humanist Symposium is now up at Elliptica, and Lynet has done a really great job. One of my early posts, An Atheist’s Sonnett is included.

Well folks, it’s six months today since A Load of Bright first graced the internet. As I promised, I’ve added the Must-Read Posts section to the sidebar to mark the occasion. At present, they’ve all been voted for by readers, but I may add one or two of my own at some point. (I’m also […]

It’s much longer than I expected. And I’ve […]
