Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for May 2020

So far, approximately $111.38 has been raised out of our target of $250.00. We're about 45% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 May!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Litecoin (LTC)
Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

"Confessions of a Former Fox News Christian" releases in August. But I'm doing a limited-time pre-order with a custom signature just for you. Get a copy for yourself. Get a copy for the Fox Newser in your life.

I really want this sucker to get out there, to be a part of the discourse, and to (hopefully) inform and expand attitudes. Thanks SO MUCH for your support!

Seth, I am a strongly non-religious person with multiple degrees in physics. I did not vote for Trump. I do not believe there is good enough evidence to support the stay-at-home rules. I do not believe our society can afford the cost of the policy. I do not believe the constitution allows us to suspend the right to assembly when some official declares an emergency.

Wait. So the fact that we're nearly at 50,000 deaths in this country from this thing isn't enough evidence for you to support stay-at-home rules? So... just how many dead Americans WOULD it take? 100,000? 500,000? 1,000,000?

And about those economic tradeoffs, here is a recent attempt by economists to price the tradeoffs. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/03/modelers-weigh-value-lives-and-lockdown-costs-put-price-covid-19 Conclusion? "...initial modeling efforts showed that even a yearlong lockdown makes economic sense, to allow time for a vaccine to be developed. The pause would shrink the economy by approximately 22%—a cost of $4.2 trillion. By comparison, the model shows that without containment measures, the economy would contract by about 7% over that year—but as many as 500,000 additional lives would be lost, which translates into a loss of roughly $6.1 trillion. Andrew Atkeson, an economist at the University of California, Los Angeles, agrees that the economics point strongly toward strict measures."

This would have terrified me as a child. Christianity is an appalling protection racket, with emotional blackmail, gaslighting and victim-blaming all rolled in. Oh, and I’m pretty sure the dramatic music was stolen from Where Eagles Dare, not Ben-Hur.

"A Thief in the Night" is a 1972 Christian apocalypse film which - while it seems laughable today - frightened many of its generation...often children. Seth Andrews was one of those children. Decades later, he examines the movie through the eyes of a skeptic.

That brought back memories! Not only watching the film, but I had an experience as a kid like the little girl, when I thought the rapture had hit, my parents (and everyone I knew) were gone and I had been left behind all alone and could only avoid hell by being beheaded for not taking the mark. I spent at least 30 minutes totally convinced of that. It was one of the most terrifying experiences of my youth. Being able to watch this again and laugh with the help of your commentary, was very cathartic. Thanks, Seth.

Hey, Aron, lots of people live in Michigan! Even atheists. Even if I like to describe us as, not the belt buckle, but the knot in the necktie of religion. The farther from Detroit you get, the more religious you get. Just like Pennsylvania is described as "Philadelphia in the east, Pittsburgh in the west, and Alabama in the middle", or how in Florida, "The farther north you go, the further south you get".

User #5352347 - 15 Jan 20 14:49
I went to a Pretty Reckless concert and these two women wouldn't stop talking during the show. They were loud enough that it was distracting me from enjoying the show. I finally leaned over to them and told them if they weren't interested in the show and would prefer to talk they should go outside so that they don't ruin it for everyone else. They got all huffy but moved to a different part of the theatre. I resumed watching the show . . . and had a good time the rest of the night. That's something I never understand. In this case, both women paid $40 a ticket to go to a live show and then spend the entire show talking to each other. And they were having to talk loud enough to hear themselves during a live concert. Not just rude, but why? Seriously? In Seth's case, why buy tickets to a show like that if you're just going scroll Facebook the entire time? It's not just incredibly rude it makes no sense.

I understand your suspicion, Seth, but even if your mum's invitation to Natalie is a maneuver, that doesn't mean it's not the only way she can think of to try to build a bridge. Unfortunately, it's still evidence that she hasn't totally accepted the reality of things, even though I suspect she may be trying to. My guess (I'm no professional) is that if you make as little of it as possible while maintaining your own boundaries, your parents might make.just enough progress that you can enjoy more get togethers like the one the other day.

The JW letter is actually worse than you think. They are typically written by elderly/disabled people that are housebound or bedridden. They still feel the cult's immense social pressure to evangelize regularly despite their condition. It's actually very sad.

YouTube is really ridiculous. They demonitize everything. One of my favorite channels (other than this one of course) is a pilot who analyzes aviation accidents and other issues in the industry. There is nothing remotely inflammatory or objectionable about it. It's all just facts and some educated personal opinion. His videos get demonitized for being "too sad" and for "graphic images" They are literally the same images of wreckage you'd see on the evening news. No mangled bodies or anything. Nothing sensationalistic. It's ridiculous, so I just added his channel to my Patreon account.

Took the survey. There were a lot of questions about loneliness. as someone who travels for a living and spends a lot of alone time doing that, I wondered if I was separating those two very similar aspects of my life. also as a transplant to the "bible belt" , being an outsider is in addition to not being religious.

This satirical video isn't far from the reality of religious homeschools. The clip is designed to expose - with a wink - the indoctrination machines that so often inhibit young people.

The piece incorporates stock imagery and a guest narrator, which your support helped to pay for. Thank you! - Seth

Hi Seth, I'm totally with you on your need to keep the movie theater "your temple", as a kind of "sacred place", where courtesy to your fellow viewers includes silence and NO cell phones or texts while the feature film is being run! This age of the assumed immediacy and "connectedness" of digital communications, the need to be "always on" is a kind of mass narcissism (for those addicted to their phones) where they can delude themselves into thinking that they are the center of the universe, All the old social rules surrounding public space courtesy seem to have lost their value and our social space is really becoming a very disconnected place in the real world. Ok, had my rant for the day! (not as good a my daily veggies, but almost!)

Yes, cereal is definitely my go to snack, particularly in the early hours of the morning. Way better than chocolate or crisps (chips). My favourite is frosted wheats - sugary stuff is the best! My friends think I'm crazy but my family have always had sugary cereal for supper & healthy cereal for breakfast. My husband on the other hand will have cereal for every meal of the day if I let him.

You're appearing with Dillahunty again? The last time you were co-host with him you hardly spoke and I honestly felt bad for you. Your quiet, thoughtful, non-confrontational, and CIVIL manner are in direct contrast to Dillahunty's vulgar abrasiveness. You are someone I'd like to know on a personal level. Dillahunty, not so much. I admire his intellect, but his bedside manner needs work.

Ridvan (Apostate Prophet on YouTube) has been the target of a concentrated flagging of his anti-Islam videos, and Twitter has banned both of his accounts: @ExMuslimProphet and @ApostateRidvan

Please consider petitioning Twitter to reinstate these accounts. If you wish, you may paste the following into your Twitter post:

To the team at @Twitter and @twittersupport, please reinstate the accounts of @ExMuslimProphet and @ApostateRidvan, which have been unfairly targeted for unpopular but legitimate criticisms of religion...in this case, Islam.

It is cold. It is gray. And, being in my late 60s, it's going to last the rest of my life. I live in a small rural MN town, typically conservative xtian and Republican. Regardless, I participated in community events and was an officer in a local service organization. Note the past tense. My town voted 62.71% for Trump... so much for MN nice... and, not knowing which 6 or 7 out of every 10 members in my town voted for Trump, I want nothing more to do with my community. I just hope I live long enough to sell my house and move.

Thanks for the podcast version - I am indeed one of those people who prefers the audio format since I listen while doing other things - cooking, gardening, walking, painting, etc. Seth, I also greatly appreciate you broadening the voices in the humanist/atheist conversation to include women, young people, individuals from around the globe and different ethnicities and nationalities. While I greatly appreciate many of the cis white men who have been leaders in the movement, like in so many other realms of life, their privilege has opened doors many of us haven't even realized were there in the room. It takes effort to seek and cultivate new voices - thanks Seth! for being such a great mentor and supporter of others.

Not too long ago I began taking an interest in the Free Will versus Determinism debate, reading the various material and listening to differing speakers on the subject, and I have fallen into the deterministic camp. (An especially compelling talk on the subject is given by Jerry Coyne in 2014 or 2015, still available on Youtube.) I won’t go into the details here, but I will say that seeing the logic of determinism has, above all, altered my view of other people’s actions. As Sam Harris points out, I am not as harshly critical of people who commit stupid or even wicked acts. Yes, we must approach the actions of others in an appropriate fashion (which fashion will be determined by a virtually endless line of causes and effects), but we needn’t waste emotional energy in hatred or hand wringing when considering these things. Give the other guy an appropriate amount of slack. Of course, we can give only as much slack as we have been determined to give and I’m only writing this because a lifetime of nature/nurture demand it of me.

Wow. Your quote is awesome Seth. I find it silly that he could find so many things wrong with it from his point of view. I find it interesting that he would use you in this way. He of course knows of your following and no doubt is hoping to use this traffic for the article to boost his claims of engagement for his website. Wouldn’t it be funny if the big spike is from atheists and not his christian followers?

User #9154146 - 13 Feb 19 16:18
Seth, thank you for your powerful words about separating good people from bad ideas - which can be so hard to do! Yet it is really the only way to rebuild community and influence change. A while back you mentioned you were reading Robert Cialdini's book on influence - could you get him as a guest on your show? I also think about Tony McLeer's story from angry young man to extremist,, violent white nationalist, and back to reclaim his humanity and try to make up for his past. It was a stranger who told him he was better than that who cracked open the good person deep in him. I struggle with this as someone who is also by nature an activist and rationalist, living in the theocracy that is Utah. So many good people, so many bad and harmful ideas. If it didn't affect public policy so much it wouldn't really matter. Conversion stories away from rigid, binary, fundamentalist beliefs like Seth's really matter. Thank you.

I once saw a silly little meme that said something like “Pets are the family you get to choose”. For an internet meme, I think there’s actually a lot of truth to that :) My dog is my family and my closest and most constant companion (and I’m married!). I think the pain of losing any family member— canine, feline or otherwise, is no less gut-wrenching because the life lost is not a human one. Thanks for turning on that mic and sharing so openly. I’m just so sorry it was under these circumstances. Sending lots of love and big, big hugs across this internet connection to you and Natalie. Here’s to the days on the horizon when thoughts of Henry and Tootsie bring you both more smiles than tears ❤️

I was at the grocery store where Michael Garecht was kidnapped from on the day it happened. I actually came short afterwards when there was only one police car and confusion. She was nine years old and grabbed by a man and forced into a car. She hasn't been seen since and that was 31 years ago. She is just one such story and I can't help but wonder why a god would allow something like this to happen; to ruin a family. https://abc7news.com/search-for-michaela-garecht-continues-30-years-after-hayward-kidnapping/4716837/

User #4613377 - 20 Jan 19 12:50
Thank you so much for sharing. I have lost many dogs in my life and understand the grief. My deepest connection was with a spaniel-dominant mutt named Poko. Although the family pet, he was in reality my dog. When he was dying of old age, we arranged a day to take him to the vet to let him pass with ease. I came home after high school to find out that Dad took it upon himself to do the deed and bury him without me. I was furious. I erupted in anger like never before. I refused to speak to my Dad for almost a month, even considered leaving home. Twenty years later, when my favorite sister asked me to assist her husband in bringing her Siberian/Malamute husky, Tosk, to the vet to pass on, I jumped at the chance. It was cathartic, as it was like the goodbye that I never got to say to Poko. There were many stories told that night, of Poko and Tosk and others, with wine and tears. Take good and gentle care of each other and Tootsie. Hugs, love, tears and happy memories to all.

Thanks for sharing... I completely understand since I lost my dog a bit over a year ago. The best thing we did was foster dogs from a no-kill center and ended up adopting a little guy. Of course, do this when you are ready! My thoughts are with you guys!

User #4440177 - 20 Jan 19 13:47
The grief of losing a pet is unique and terrible. I carry so many in my heart, and I understand wanting a tangible remembrance in your home. I have friends who keep the ashes of their beloved pets for years, and I have other things (collars, paw prints, etc.) to remind me of the ones I've loved and lost over the years. I wasn't able to make a large donation but I'm happy I was able to contribute to Henry's van!

I've followed your grief process all week, and send my love. I have kept some of my pets' ashes in my home, but I've started scattering them, because I have so many now😥 As a veterinarian, I can tell you that the grief of the staff at your vet's office was very real. It's just heart wrenching to lose a patient, and to know owners are grieving. We absolutely respect the trust you put in us. It's very humbling and at times weighs heavy. Continued love and healing thoughts to both of you and to Rat Dog and Kat. ♥️

My deepest sympathies, Seth. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved dog - they're part of the family. Just think of how much better you made his life after you rescued him, and the comfort you brought each other. Those memories last forever.

My wife told me about your loss yesterday, and I was just stunned! We're dog owners as well, and have always been. We're so sorry for your loss, sir! There aren't words to work through the grief with, and I'm not going to try. But our hearts go out to you.

I’m completely heartbroken for you, Seth. You transformed Henry’s life as he did yours. In his life with you he knew nothing but comfort and love, that is an extra special thing to provide to a survivor like Henry. What a great way to honor his life, I managed to punch in a donation through the tears. May it carry its passengers to homes as loving as Henry's ❤️

Seth & Natalie, I’m so sorry to hear about Henry. I had to stop your video several times because of my overwhelming sadness. Like many people, I know the intense pain of losing a little animal. May your pain at this time diminish quickly. I just went to the Go Fund Me and saw you are almost at your wonderful goal. Rest in knowing that Henry will continue on helping so many other little animals.

Seth, I have to wonder if you actually read Randy Cassingham's True Stella Awards book, because the first thing he does in it is explain how Stella's suit against McDonald's was *not* frivolous. But Stella had already become the go-to name for such outrageous lawsuits. You can find Randy's rundown of the situation here: www.stellaawards.com/stella.html Randy is as upset with the dissemination of falsehoods online as anyone. I invite everyone here to check out his newsletter at: www.thisistrue.com I am a paid subscriber to his newsletter, though there is a free version. I'm going to forward the latest free one to you Seth. I think you'll find it an enjoyable read. And his stories are sourced from actual news. Randy is the real deal when it comes to being internet savvy. Check his stuff out.

I reviewed your post and dug further into Cassingham's stuff, and you are correct. It seems he was playing on her name in an ironic way, and I had missed the irony. I do thank you for the correction. I'll have a corrected edit today. :)

Thanks, Seth, and don't be hard on yourself. When I read about Chau's death, I immediately thought of the joke from the movie, Philadelphia: "So, what do you call 1000 lawyers chained together at the bottom of the ocean? A good start."

I don't feel sympathy. He was warned and he knew sticking his finger into the 5,000 volt socket would be bad. And yet he still did! And we all have a right to laugh uproariously as he fries himself in his own stupidity.

I would encourage y'all to read this wonderful thread on the history of the Sentinelese tribe and the horrid experience they had gone through at the hands of prior "missionaries" who literally tortured and raped them for decades.

Missionary my ass. This dude was literally a walking and breathing chemical warhead that could have wiped out the entire indigenous population with a sneeze. Really surprised at the tone deaf coverage of this inconsiderate bastard's death. The man was an arrogant buffoon, his story showcases the worst aspects of evangelism. Yet various reports seem to present him as some sort of a brave do-gooder.

Because I just been to a socially more advanced state... and here I go again... back to the country that i came from... a first world country that ought to be a first world but is more like a third world banana republic! That's what! I can hang with veteran American travelers overseas whom I always meet and fly with. I cannot stand locals. I know that I'm back in Trumpland. YES! I run out of patience!

I travel a lot, too, and yes, after a long stretch of a lot of cites, no matter how enjoyable the individual events, you get home and it's totally normal to be cranky! Ideas for future podcasts - once you get past the god thing, you still have a LONG way to go; a long row to hoe. How can we, as secular humanists, combat the worst of the bad ideas out there? We all know that religion supports racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, credulity, and victimhood. Religion is in the business of teaching both children and adults what to think. Why aren't *we* in the business of teaching secular humanism?

You make a really good point. I have made the same comparison... but not with religion... my comparison is with the Republican party. He abuses you, he removes your school funding, he speaks in terms of war and violence, he is militaristic, he loves to fund wars that hurt people... but he is YOUR monster and that's why they put up with it, you know? And that's how I see so many conservative women reacting ---to the point where they will sabotage fellow women. Look at how the Kavanaugh thing went down.

Hiya all, so this comment is not really at all related but I wanted to ask Seth and fellow P’s if there is a good you tube video that explains the differences of what is meant by Pre-Trib Mid-Trib, Post-Trib Rapture. I need a “Rapture for Skeptical Dummies” overview. Most of what I find is person A defending one side or trashing someone who believes in the other side. And while asking if you have any suggestion on non-Calvin/Calvin on how they think about the idea of Election and Predetermination. Thanks in advance for any recommendations. I am very lacking in my knowledge on these topics and want to be able to understand so I can follow debates better.

Some very telling and truthful points raised here. Great talk Seth! 👍 I'm currently going through a similar dilemma with a work colleague who revealed to me her husband was physically and mentally abusing her. We became good friends and when she decided to separate from him after she found out he cheated on her, I was her support during this difficult time. A few months later she was going though some difficulties at work and it got so bad she threatened to quit. I tried contacting her over the phone many times to have a chat to calm her nerves but got no response. I became worried she might've hurt herself or worse still taken her own life. So I decided to drive over to her place the following morning to check if things were okay. I knocked on the door and she eventually answered but she looked like a hollow shell of what she once was. I was pretty shocked to see her in that state and tried to offer some words of comfort and asked if we could talk about her situation. She became agitated and nervous, and as I tried to reach out to her. Then all of a sudden from the side bedroom door her despicable husband came crashing through the front door and lunged at me pushing her out of the way trying to tear my eyes out! I backed off and said I just wanted to see if she was okay. He hurled abuse at me and thought I was having an affair with her. See the hypocrisy here? Also a classic case of a paranoid psychopath! He asked me to leave so I left the premises as I certainly didn't want to fight especially on their property. Since that incident the once beautiful and caring friendship I had with this woman is now at an end. I'm seen as the bad guy by her for trying to reach out to a person in need. I can't contact her now as it may cause more distress to her if this disgusting animal finds out we're still communicating. I've tried to encourage her to ring some health services for abused victims. I'm doubtful she'll attempt to ring them as she's conflicted and still angry with me. I've exhausted my options here and at a loss of what to do next if anything. I really don't want her to become another horrible statistic on the news. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks. 🤗

User #573155 - 4 Nov 18 13:08
I met someone like that. I wanted to help her, but she has to step through that door herself. And really... I don't even know if she understands she is free to separate. Same thing. He's a gaslighter. Verbally unsupporting. But I don't know. She is religious so maybe you are right, Seth. they've been trained to be slaves.

I would be ticked off if any of my religious family or in-laws tried to organize a prayer at my house. My in-laws have a big prayer circle when they get together, which I find irritating but I just keep my mouth shut and stare at the ground as the person spewing praise to the magic ghost rambles on and on. My father and stepmother pray before every meal and everyone is to join hands. Often it's just me there so it's a holy trinity of hand holding. I just go along with it out of respect for their house and the food is always great but they know I'm not religious so it bugs me.

You reminded me of something. A visiting lecturer spoke about the book Silence by Shusaku Endo at an assembly at BYU back in the 90's. The lecturer brought up the same points you did and how Rodrigues decided to trample on the the picture of christ. The lecturer pointed out that belief is in the heart, not in a picture and stuff like that. His lecture showed Rodrigues as the hero. The controversy his lecture caused at the mormon university was MASSIVE. I agreed with what he said but had to keep my mouth shut about it be cause I also worked in the General Book section of the BYU bookstore. Funny thing is, we sold out of the book that day and we had to special order in a shit ton more. And, only two were returned. HAHAHAHAH! It was a crazy thing to have as such a huge controversy.

I would never allow any type of prayer or blessing in my house. Do it to yourself all you want, but don’t ever attempt to force religion into my home. Everyone in the family knows we are a family of heathens so it never comes up. At someone else’s house I just sit there quietly. No one ever holds hands or anything.

1. Don't believe whatever the English/French say about each other's country. 2. We had a great time in Paris. I know some basic French and that helped, but the trick in Paris is to not look like a tourist (dress too casual). 3. I actually encountered the rudest single person I met in Europe in London. 4. You can take the chunnel from Paris to London--no need to fly. It's fast/easy to see both in a single trip.

I was unhappy with the end result, so I nixed it and did a fresh one today.
