Next Project

I really enjoy all the atheists, skeptics and free thinkers on YouTube.

So I am working on a play list of some of my favorites and I am also working on another playlist of ones I want to share with my kids.

When I am done I will post them here.

Criticisms of Anita Sarkeesian

I came across this video from the Amazing Atheist and I want to share it.
Warning: If you have never watched the AA be warned, his language is of the very colorful AngloSaxon variety.  That is the polite way of say he swears like a fucking sailor.

Here is the video.



I backed Sarkeesian early on because I felt what she was doing was "good work"  but since then I have had some issues with the product coming out.

1. Where are they?  Like TJ says at this rate it will be 2021 before she is done.

2. Shoddy Research.  A lot of her videos are shot to prove a pre determined conclusion.  Plus she relies on ancedotes and research that have been disproven (video games for example do not cause people to act out violently).

3. No comments on Videos?  I know she gets a lot idiots posting to her videos.  But some of us would like to engage in some real conversation and keeping the comments closed on her videos sends the message that she is not interested in actually having a discussion.

I am still happy I put some money towards this.  But as a Kickstarter backer I am disappointed about the product I am getting back.

New URL and other updates

Wow. I really suck at this.  Well, not really I guess. I do update my Other Side blog daily, but this little corner of my personal internet seems a bit more dusty.

Anyway I have updated the URL around here, http://atheism.timsbrannan.com/.

I have to think about the future of this place.

I will admit I don't read as many atheism blogs as I used too.  I think the future of atheism has to move beyond the internet and into "the real world".

I got a few more atheism books for Christmas, so once I get to those I might have more to say.
