Live performance of Godless Perviness.

If you are not aware of the Godless Perverts, you really should be, I mean with Greta Christina as one of the spearheads, how can it not be good. Last weekend in San Francisco at the Center for Sex and Culture was the latest installment of the Godless Perverts Story Hour which featured readings from Jen Cross, David Fitzgerald, Greta Christina, Virgie Tovar, M Christian, Molly Weatherfield aka Pam... »

A Tale of Two Mediums: Photography Vs. Cinematography

A Tale of Two Mediums: Photography Vs. Cinematography

I’m doing something a bit different this week. Last Wednesday, August 14, Mad Art Lab went to the movies…well, not literally, but some of the Labbers got together via a Google Hangout and discussed “Atheists and Film”, specifically about the Atheist Film Festival. Since my internet connection is notoriously slow (I kept dropping in and out of the Hangout), I opted to pre-re... »

Art Inquisition: Whose Art Is It, Anyway?

Kiev is celebrating the 1,025th anniversary of the baptism of Kievan Rus, the medieval kingdom that laid the Orthodox foundation for modern-day Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine. One of its museums, the Mystetskyi Arsenal, had collected the works of 1,000  artists from 35 different museums in a pan-Ukrainian Arts Project called Great and Grand. The general director of the museum, Natalia Zabolotna, had... »

“Palm Reader” and “Religion vs. Skepticism”: SkepchickCon, Part 1

The time has finally come! I can finally reveal a photography project that I originally started working on back in February. It was such an entertaining, yet challenging project and I enjoyed it thoroughly. What was especially cool was that during this project I had the wonderful opportunity to work with one of my heroes, Donna, aka Ms. Information. So what was this super-secret photography projec... »

Lab Track: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Higgs Boson Blues

Lab Track: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Higgs Boson Blues

I got sorta giddy when I saw that Nick Cave had written a song about the Higgs Boson, and it’s about the delegitimizing of religion in the face of science to boot. But then it turns out to be more of a lament than anything (Who cares what the future brings?). While Cave has always been critical of religion in general, he is notoriously slippery and hard to pin down on the God question. He se... »

The Perot Museum: An Oasis of Science

The Perot Museum: An Oasis of Science

With all of the controversy surrounding Texas schools teaching Creationism (including Young Earth Creationism which teaches that the Earth is only 6,000 years old), and Texas Governor Rick Perry stating “In Texas, we teach both creationism and evolution,” when he was asked a question by a young boy during his campaign, scientific-minded Texans have cause for alarm. But even in the bible belt there... »

13 Lucky Years!

13 Lucky Years!

Rob and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary last week. It was wonderful. As we spent our evening together, I pondered how this whole marriage thing got started at all. Why do humans want to pick one person to spend the rest of their life with? For this week’s post, I decided I’d look into marriage and why we’re drawn to it. I also discuss same-sex marriage and why it’... »
