God is Dead. So What? – My Talk from Skepticon 5!

With much excitement, and with many thanks to the amazing Rob Lehr of Hambone Productions, I am delighted to present to you God is Dead. So What?, my talk from Skepticon 5! This was my first time at Skepticon as a speaker (I was on a panel at Skepticon 4) and I had a wonderful time! In the talk I explore the reasons behind the increasingly-speedy “Death of God” in America, and argue that the growing population of religious “nones” is a political turning-point which, if handled correctly, could lead to long-term changes in the country’s political and social life. I make the case that the creation of nonreligious communities is essential to further develop our movement, and describe what these communities might look like. You can watch the other talks from Skepticon 5 here.
