We’ll Be Liveblogging The Amazing Meeting 2013!

Okay guys, my bags are packed and I’m on my way to Las Vegas to cover the one, the only, The Amazing Meeting for all of you fine folks.

A weekend full of science and skepticism and, likely, wine await me.

Here’s how it’s going to go down:

I’ll be liveblogging all of the talks and panels, while my trusty side-kick/expert photographer/gentleman friend, Mikey, will be taking pictures and video. I am also going to have the opportunity to sit down with some of the speakers for interviews, which I am planning on recording and uploading in a sort of podcast-like fashion so we can get those to you quickly. (Apologies in advance for my lack of a radio-friendly voice, I shall try to leave the bulk of the talking to people smarter than myself.)

As it’s my first trip to TAM, I am not sure what’s waiting for me this weekend, but I can tell you that Mikey and I are going to be working our butts off to make sure you all feel like you’re there.

Can Atheists Marry Christians… and Make It Last?

Christianity Today asked a panel of experts whether interfaith marriage was ever okay, especially given the Biblical dictate about not being “unequally yoked.”

For the most part, the panel accepted interfaith marriages as a natural consequence of our society, but they had some limitations.
