Geeks Without God

I started listening to a newish podcast that is right up my ally called Geeks Without God. It is exactly what the name implies. I already listen to a couple atheist shows and a couple pop culture/comics shows--but this consolidates my interests! They do a "five questions" thing that I figure I could answer while pimping their program.

1)  What is the best movie you’ve seen in the last thirty days?

Looper. This wasn't my first viewing of the flick, but even without the surprises it beats out the other crap I've seen lately. It's original, it has time travel, and it has a catchy score--three things I look for in movies (I obviously don't fill this criteria very often.)

2)  Who is your favorite atheist character?

I'm a fan of the DC comics character Mister Terrific, even though he has no right to be an atheist. Not only does he work alongside demigods like Superman and Captain Marvel Shazam, but his universe also has Greek gods chatting with Wonder Woman, Biblical angels, and the personified wrath of Jehovah called The Spectre!

3)  What is your geekiest hobby?

I just read a lot of comics. Currently Saga, Chew, Superior Spiderman, Batman, Wolverine and the X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, All-New X-Men, Green Lantern, The Invincible Iron Man, and most recently The Private Eye.

4)  What is your favorite sandwich?

A tuna sub with a little mustard, onion and Lenny's hot pepper relish.

5)  What is the stupidest thing anyone has said to you about your atheism/agnosticism?

That I can't have morality without a higher power. I'm not sure how a social creature could not have morality, but apparently every theist who argues with me is just one missed church service from sociopathy.


  1. sounds interesting. I'll check them out

  2. Yeah, I've actually found that most of my atheist podcasts have gone away and I listen almost exclusively to geek-type podcasts. It would be nice to have it all-in-one. I'll give it a shot next week.
