Carnival Of The Godless (Late) Christmas Edition
Welcome to the December 23, 2007 edition of carnival of the godless. Yes, yes, I know it's very late. I've been busy, and apparently my host for this last one never posted it. Sorry about that folks!
Stephen Littau presents Atheist Atrocities? (Part 1 of 3) posted at Fearless Philosophy For Free Minds, saying, "This is a 3 part series; the host may link only the fist post or all 3 (Though the first post link should be sufficient; if readers are interested enough in the topic, there are links in the post which leads to the next)"
Mike Haubrich presents The P.I.G. to Book Reviews posted at Tangled Up in Blue Guy, saying, "This is a bit beyond the pale. Robert J. Hutchinson reviews his own book, without even choosing a pseudonym. The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible."
Greta Christina presents How Sweet the Sound: Atheism and Religious Music posted at Greta Christina's Blog, saying, "Meditations on a problem: Since I've become an atheist blogger, religious music -- including beautiful music that I love -- has become irritating and unlistenable. How do atheists get past this?"
Siamang presents Catholic Coloring Book Warns Children posted at the eBay atheist, saying, "“Being Friends, Being Safe, Being Catholic” is mostly pretty innocuous, with pages of general safety, piety and charity. But then there’s the page included above. A smiling angel warns of the dangers of being alone in some very Christian room while the altar boy reaches into some sack...."
Doctor Biobrain presents Living in a Secular World posted at And Doctor Biobrain's Response Is..., saying, "I've always been a really big fan of everything you've ever done and think your breath smells like honey-baked ham (and yes, I mean that in the good way). Keep up the good work! We really need more people like you, whoever you are."
John Wilson presents The real nativity posted at Armchair Dissident, saying, "First-time submission: Christian think-tank Theos recently proclaimed that Christmas is dead, because only 1 in 8 people knew details behind the nativity story. I noted that there was no one right answer to any of their questions. I thought it might be appropriate just before christmas :) And I only just missed the deadline for the last carnival!"
Blaine presents Patience is Key posted at BlainePower.com, saying, "This article isn't about atheism, it's more of a value that I hold dear as an atheist. In the article, my beliefs on "Change" and how it affects everything we do was inspired by what I learned about evolution, and how everything must change or it will wither and die."
Steve Snyder/SocraticGadfly presents John Haught straw-mans atheism in the name of progressive theology posted at The Philosophy of the Socratic Gadfly, saying, "A deconstruction of John Haught's straw-man atheism, used by him to justify a "new" rehash of Tillich, process theology, etc."
Robert McNally presents Claims vs. the Other Three C’s posted at Ironwolf, saying, "Contrasts the major value of the non-theist world view, the strength of factual Claims, vs the major drivers of the theist world view: Comfort, Culture, and Coercion."
Shorisha presents What First Amendment? posted at State of Protest, saying, "What First Amendment? encourages parental rational activism while discussing the duplicitous and biased public school system with regard to student organizations and the prohibition against religious establishment."
C. L. Hanson presents The "War on Christmas" and the war on being considerate to others... posted at Letters from a broad..., saying, "A few remarks about the crusaders for Christmas and their holy war to keep "goodwill to all" out of their Christmas celebration."
Jason Mueller presents Atheism in the 21st Century posted at Over Ten Years Serving the Reading Public, saying, "Ten year professional writer, Jason Mueller presents a stark view of atheism in the 21st Century. Contractual writing services are available through the webpage via the Contact Form if interested in featuring specialized and immaculate pieces of writing on your website or in your publication."
Cheerful Iconoclast presents Competitive Grovelling posted at cheerful iconoclast, saying, "Discussion of an article regarding the Muslim practice of praying hard enough to leave a visible mark on one's forehead."
vjack presents Does Hoping For An End To Religion Make Me Intolerant? posted at Atheist Revolution.
Mark A. Rayner presents The Lost PowerPoint Slides (Winter Festival Edition) posted at The Skwib.
John Remy presents School Board Removes Christian Classic from Library Shelves posted at Mind on Fire., saying, "This is meant to be a sly, satirical poke in the eye of Catholic and Baptist censors (Golden Compass, Harry Potter). I hope the ridiculousness seeps through. It's easy to imagine religious censors; more difficult to picture American secularists attempting to do the same."
