I’m here to tell you all about ReasonFest 3 hosted by the Society of Open-Minded Atheists and Agnostics (SOMA) at KU. ReasonFest is one of the biggest student-run conferences in the states (probably in the world, but I didn’t want to sound too cocky…), and this year is going to be the best yet! I’m super excited for our line-up! There will be talks, a panel, a debate, comedy AND music. Speakers include Taner Edis, Amanda Knief, Greta Christina, David Fitzgerald, Seth Andrews (from the Thinking Atheist), Nate Phelps, Teresa McBain, and more. PLUS Matt Dillahunty and JT Eberhard will be teaming up for the debate on the origin of morality (we’ve titled it: Moral Kombat). Keith Lowell Jensen and Shelley Segal will be performing.
Woah buddy. What a crazy awesome weekend! Bonus: the whole thing is FREE for anyone to attend! That’s right, free. All you have to do is get to Lawrence, KS on April 20-21.
As you probably well know, conferences that are free to attend are (sadly) not free to put on. We’ve been working for months to put this thing together, and now we’re getting down to crunch time. I’m here to propose a final fundraising effort to get the rest of our speakers’ travel paid for.
“Ugh, fundraisers..” you say in disgust. I know, I know. But this one will be fun! [Because it’s at JT’s expense].My goal is $2000. If we reach that goal in donations in the next 2 weeks, I pledge to periodically release audio clips of JT singing in the shower. These will be posted as weekly installments here at WWJTD beginning next August (when we’ll be living together) and there will be a few surprise ones before then whenever I get the chance.
That’s right folks, you can help out a poor student group put on a big event AND get some great entertainment. I can’t do clips each week while JT still lives in Ohio, but I do promise I won’t keep you waiting for the first clip as soon as we reach our goal.
If you’d like support ReasonFest (or if you just like to embarrass JT), you can DONATE HERE
(or you can simply send your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org via paypal)
