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.
