Catch me at FTBConscience this weekend without even leaving your house. :)

Freethoughtblogs is running a fully online conference this weekend.  I like the idea.  Frankly, I’m kind of pissed that I didn’t think of it first.

Anyway, the lineup is pretty spectacular.  It includes every FtB writer along with some Patheos writers like myself, Hemant Mehta, and Dan Fincke.  There are also movement leaders like Dave Silverman, who is scheduled to give the opening tomorrow at 5pm EST.  You can also hear from people you wouldn’t expect at a conference put on by a notoriously firebrand site, like James Croft (who also writes for Patheos).  You can see the full schedule here.

As of right now I’m scheduled to be on panels about pop atheism, atheism and music, and running a major conference.  I’ll post links and what not as I get them.  :)

    Silverman is at 6pm EST; all times in the FtBCon schedule are CST.

    Of course you didn’t think of it first — I did. And we all know that you are just a pale pathetic shadow creeping along behind me.

      It has to work – Catholics do it all the time!

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is the DSM?

    • Miri

      DSM stands for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders; it’s known as the “bible” of psychiatry and is what’s currently used to diagnose mental disorders and, more disturbingly, determine who gets insurance coverage for their treatment. The DSM V was just released with a bunch of changes.
