Michaelyn’s face as she got engaged.

The video of my entire Skepticon 5 talk will go up eventually.  However, one of the people with Camp Quest Oklahoma was there and managed to have a camera on Michaelyn while I was doing my proposing.  He sent me that video.  :)

Here’s how it went down.  I had given roses to some of the audience members who Michaelyn really loves, people like Jessica Ahlquist, Jen McCreight, Matt Dillahunty, David Fitzgerald, etc.  The last argument I touched on was “You don’t have evidence for love, but you believe it exists, so why not god?”  After knocking down that softball, I started a slide show of pictures of the two of us and talked about all the evidences for love I’ve found with Michaelyn.  During that time, the flowers were delivered one by one to Michaelyn, who was flanked by her mother and my mother.

You can’t see, but I didn’t cry at all.  Not a bit.  Nope.

This movement has gotten to watch me grow up.  I’m very happy I got to share such an important moment of my life with everybody in it.

Living with dignity.
You guys are wonderful.
For real though, happy Mother's Day, mom.
It's funny how ambitions change over time.
