Episode 195: Keeping the Faith

She wants, terribly, to believe; to be comforted. A man, recently a celebrity for doing good, decides that she will be the one he saves. It doesn’t sound too hard, really. She needs to believe. So why does he fuck it up so badly?

Episode 194: Carl Sagan on the DIstinction Between True and False Visions

Carl Sagan’s book, “The Demon Haunted World,” is as close to an “atheist bible” as you can get. Well, it is to me, anyway. Here I include the chapter called “On the Distinction Between True and False Visions,” which deals with Marian apparitions.

Episode 193: Ajay Will Not Be Swayed

Ajay Lowery’s album is some kind of anti-federalist, sovereign American thing. Which would not be too bad, were it not so pro-American. I know, right? Just in time for Easter, folks. An Easter record for you, all about how the IRS should be brought down. Which is also not so bad, either.

What? What do you think you pay for with your federal tax money? Dolls for orphans? Stem-cell research? Milk for students? Killing brown people?

Enjoy.

Episode 192: Magical Questions, Real Answers

I was contacted by an Australian Christian who found 10 questions on the internet and wanted to publicly write them on my “website” and have me answer them. I don’t know what website he was talking about; I suspected it was my Atheist Nexus page, but I’m not certain. I have lots of pages, but my only websites with my email address available are Hellbound Alleee and Insolitology; the former is not set up for a Christian Challenge (and it’s really a dead site); the latter is so rarely updated I’m always surprised when someone contacts me about it. It’s my first website from back in 2002.

I found myself in an extremely unpleasant conversation with him, because I felt very grumpy about Yet Another Christian coming into my space and baiting me. It’s not like I go to churches or even Christian websites and bother people. Although that might be fun.

I ended the conversation, but then, as I was working on my Atheist Nexus site, I thought, “well, I’m doing this because I’m working out some personal issues related to anger and resentment over my past. Maybe if I do a show related to his 10 questions, it’ll be like working out my problem.” So I looked at Google and found one set of 10 Questions for Atheists. There are a lot of them, but they tend to be pretty similar. I got these questions from Lifeway, some modern churchy website for the nineties–I mean, for the Modern Age. You can find it here.

On with the show.

Francois’ Lyrics

Tonight is the Flood,
The last, the greatest.
It’s the real end of the world,
And we built a boat.
We took the vermin
A bit against our will,
But you save nothing
If you don’t save everything…

Noah, Noah, Noah…

We took lentils,
We took jewels.
We loved the ones that shine
In the night and make you crazy.
We took the elephant
And his last two teeth:
Last elephant,
First million toothpicks.

Noah, Noah, Noah…
Why aren’t you on the boat?
Noah, Noah,
Why did you make holes in the sail
And the flag?

We took the beavers,
We took the birds…
And all the furs
To make coats.
We thought to ourselves: the fish,
They can stay in the sea.
How can you put a whale
All at the bottom of a boat?

Noah, Noah, Noah…

We took gazelles
And even penguins,
Two swallows,
Skunks, badgers.
It was so cold
All the way down at the bottom of the boat,
That we took liars, too,
To tell us it was warm.

Noah, Noah, Noah…
Why aren’t you on the boat?
Noah, Noah,
Why did you make holes in the sail
And the flag?

As we understood that
We’d have no newspapers,
We took mannequins,
Not too thin and very pretty,
A ton of makeup,
Underwear, swimsuits,
To get back on the beach
When the weather’s nice again.

Noah, Noah, Noah…

We took thumbtacks
For our posters of God,
Those truckers’ dreams
We took to heart.
Tonight is the Flood,
The last, the greatest.
It’s the real end of the world,
And we built a boat.

Noah, Noah, Noah…
Why aren’t you on the boat?
Noah, Noah,
Why did you make holes in the sail
And the flag?
