    I’m excited as hell that Eli signed on for the God Awful podcast. Is he still going to be doing his live magic show as well? I was hoping to get to New York to see that some day.

    I rushed right over and supported God Awful; fantastic idea! I think you should start by re-posting all the reviews Eli’s already done in an easy to search way. I’ve gone back through all the Scathing Atheist eps to find them when I finally got around to watching some of the movies myself, and it’s a pain!

    One of the best diatribes ever and the bar was already amazingly high. The last paragraph starting with problems either are solved by applying human ingenuity or not solved at all and ending with “how is that not harmful?” should be put on a button like that “Easy” button from Staples so that anytime someone comes up with that stupid “whats the harm of religion?” question, I could just hit that button and play the clip of that part of the rant.

    Dear Sirs,
    You fuckers. I believe this is the episode (129. I listen via stitcher, and the numbers tend to blur together after 6 or so episodes in a row)) where you mention C-Webb’s Sunday School. Being curious, I went a-searching and found it quite easily. The sole problem being, the newest episode is solely dedicated to how this will be the last episode. As the song says, You picked a fine time to tell me, Lucille. Ah well. The man is still very entertaining, and I have you folks to thank for the introduction.
    Love and kisses,
