Back from Canada! Toronto was a blast Thanks to the University of Toronto and University of Guelph secular student groups and the Center for Inquiry for putting together a terrific event. Can’t wait to go back.
Some students advertised my talk (“Viewing Faith Through an Atheist’s Eyes”) by putting fliers around campus. Maybe it was the word “atheist,” but many of the posters were ripped down. Who would do such a thing…?
Apparently viewing faith pays cash.
Or I’m hot.
Also entertaining? Going to Toronto during gay pride festivities.
(Mine eyes… they burn.)
I’ll spare you the not-so-family-friendly shots. Needless to say, I now know what assless chaps look like.
At one end of the pride parade was a large TV screen where text messages (sent for free) could be displayed for all to see… you figure this could be a good or bad thing…:
And does anyone else have second thoughts about what are they selling at this booth…:
Anyway, Katie has more thoughts on the actual talk.
It went well, I thought. I met some great people. It’s nice to know non-religious groups are alive and thriving in Canada — and under excellent leadership.
I’m hoping to get video of the entire talk up online soon.
