June 5, 2007

Yesterday, this site received its 10,000th hit, just one week short of its three month anniversary. So, whoever it was that accidentally found their way to my blog while looking for porn around 9:30pm (GMT) last night, email me, and I’ll send you a beer voucher.

An Impromptu Carnival

June 4, 2007

Even though I’ve become aware of more atheist blogs since I started this site, I’ve found myself with less and less time to actually read them. More than ever, I find myself ‘scan-reading’.

Blogroll Update

May 27, 2007

The Blue Linchpin is the newest member of my blogroll (hat tip to the Spanish Inquisitor for bringing it to my attention). The author is a 16 year old girl, who introduces her maiden post with this passage. I’m slowly dying of cancer (I’m estimated to have a year at the least), and because of […]

That’s why it’s called “The Beginners Guide…”. I know quite a few seasoned bloggers, and I sincerely hope they will […]

I have another new addition, ladies and gentlemen, to my esteemed blogroll. I give you Letters from Le Vrai. The writer, Juno Walker, describes the blog with the subtitle, “Analysis and commentary from a naturalistic perspective”, and promises to tackle issues including, “education, foreign policy, criminal justice, social justice, addiction & behavioral health, human sexuality, […]

The 66th Carnival of the Godless, including my Book Review: The Dawkins Delusion, by Alister McGrath is now up at The Atheist Experience. Edit: The next edition, on May 27th, will be hosted at Letters from a Broad (not Friendly Atheist, as I was originally lead to believe).

The eagerly awaited inaugural edition of the new blog carnival The Humanist Symposium, including my article The Credit We Deserve, is now up at the founding site, Daylight Atheism.
