FTBConscience, the first entirely online atheist/skeptic conference that I’m aware of, kicks off this evening (at least where I am) with a talk by David Silverman. I’ll also be appearing on that panel to say a few introductory words. Then at 9 pm EST, I’ll be moderating a panel on critical thinking with Jeremy Beahan, Julia Galef and Dan Fincke. The first link above is to the website for the conference, where you can get the full schedule. The other links are to the Google+ event pages for those two panels, from which you should be able to link to the streaming video on Youtube for them once they get started. You can ask questions for a Q&A session at the end of the discussion by going to the Pharyngula chat room (instructions here) or by leaving them as a comment on this thread after the session starts. Be there or…don’t be there. Your choice.

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.
