See you in Philly this Weekend and in Orlando in November!

Because of Yom Kippur, I am off on Friday when I would normally be teaching all day. So, I decided to go to the 2013 Pennsylvania State Atheist/Humanist Conference. I am seriously looking forward to seeing all sorts of people from the movement. If you are going to be at the conference or if you just live in the Philly area and would like to touch base with me, be in touch with me and let’s try to plan for that! If you can’t make it because you live in California, remember you can at least see me Saturday on the big screen in “Hug An Atheist” at the the fifth annual Atheist Film Festival, at San Francisco’s Roxie Theater. I interviewed the director last week, too

Also, remember, November 2-3 in Orlando, you can see me speak on “Empowering Atheism” at the Florida Freethought 2013 Conference sponsored by the Humanists of Florida Association. That talk will be explaining why I think atheism rationally entails an ethics of both empowerment and of humanism and how embracing an ethics of empowerment and of humanism is the best thing atheists can do to empower atheism as a force against theism. Sign up here!

The HFA has put out a second video advertising the conference today:
