Atheists at Albany Pride

Booth

My atheist Meetup group, Capital Region Atheists & Agnostics, rented a booth for Albany, New York's Gay Pride Day.Whew! Fantastic event! My own personal thank-you to all who organized the thing, and all who attended, and especially to the members of CRAA who made it all happen. (I'm hoping some of them will chime in here and tell me who sent all the great atheist/agnostic/humanist stuff that covered the table and caught so many eyes.)Photos follow.

Pics from Eschaton 2012

I had my big mongo camera with me at Eschaton 2012, but I kept reminding myself I was there to learn, to speak, to mingle and meet.

Boggled

You Europeans will be tolerantly amused by this, but ...I live in an apartment in Schenectady, New York. (It's kinda near the center of the state, if you're not familiar with newyorkography.) It's an older building. In fact, the area I live in is the oldest part of the town — there's a building a few blocks away that dates from the late 1600s.My building dates from the 1800s. It's a creaky old thing, but comfortable. I'd like to show you a series of pictures from when I went down to the b … [Read more...]

Tits and Ass and Weenies, Oh Myyyy

This has probably been out there for a while, but I'm pretty sure it's the first time *I* have seen it.The Vatican has a virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel.You can mouse around it. The navigation is weird, but if you work at it, you can see all of it. You can also zoom in and out with your mouse's scroll wheel or the Shift and Ctrl keys.A couple of thoughts: … [Read more...]
