Carnival of the Godless #76

September 30, 2007

  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 […]

The Atheist Blogroll

September 24, 2007

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 […]

Carnival Alert

September 23, 2007

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.

The Absence of Evidence

September 20, 2007

Quite a few times, recently, I have heard Christians cite the time-worn words “absence of evidence is not evidence of absence”. It’s a catchy sound bite and a highly successful meme, but it is utterly false. Absence of evidence most certainly is evidence of absence. Before I explain why, I think it’s important to understand […]

Nonbelieving Literati, Lack of Writing, Nullifidian and Planet Humanism

September 15, 2007

I haven’t finished my homework, and I don’t even have a dog. I am thoroughly enjoying Julian, but a few things have come up in my personal life which have prevented me from finishing it in time. I have sent my apologies to the Exterminator (who posted his article on Julian today) personally, and offered […]

Must-Read Posts and another Milestone

September 12, 2007

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 […]

The Nonbelieving Literati Looms Large

September 7, 2007

The Exterminator at No More Hornets came up with a great idea called The Nonbelieving Literati. I happily signed up, but, as was my tradition throughout my formal education, I am running extremely late with my homework! My copy of Julian arrived the other day and damn! It’s much longer than I expected. And I’ve […]

In Memory of Steve Irwin

September 4, 2007

It is one year today since the tragic, premature passing of Steve Irwin. He was “fatally pierced in the chest with a sting ray barb”. I remember hearing the news on the radio on my way to work that morning. While I would never have called myself a fan, I did admire him greatly, and […]
