Two Opportunities (one for each side)

Two interesting opportunities turned up in the “Religion” folder of my RSS reader, and I’d like to pass them on to you:

For Atheists:

If you’re looking for a summer internship (or know some secular youngsters who are still at loose ends), the Foundation Beyond Belief is still accepting applications for their summer internship program.  It looks like it’s part time and telecommuting, so anyone could apply.

Foundation Beyond Belief helps atheists coordinate charitable giving and has raised over a quarter million dollars for their featured causes to date.

For Christians:

JT Eberhard of Freethought Blogs and the Secular Student Alliance is looking for a sparring partner for what he’s calling a blogalog.  Here’s his pitch:

I don’t generally wade into the comment to rebut people. If I think something needs to be said, I’ll drag their comment into a blog post and go to town.

However, I realize I’ve not been doing as much back-and-forth as I used to with believers and that needs to stop. So, I’m throwing out an invite to blogalog with me. What that means is that I want someone to exchange emails with on the existence of god. Those emails (from both sides) will then get published without edit to the blog (and the other participant may publish them wherever they please).

If you’re interested, you can contact him at wwjtd21[at]gmail[dot]com.
