The past and the future: a look at what SSA 2012 meant

In 2009 PZ Myers led a zerg of the creationist museum to kick off the Secular Student Alliance‘s Annual Leadership Conference.  Jen McCreight attended the conference that year and provided a picture of the attendees. [Read more...]

My boss, Lyz Liddell, talking about how young atheists are turning into a juggernaut. [Read more...]

The team behind the high school program

I wanted to include the contents of this post in with the post about the article on high school atheism, but I decided that the article should get its own space. I want to tell you about all the people at SSA HQ who make the high school program rock. Lyz Liddell – My boss, [Read More...]

High School atheists in the Washington Post

Yesterday a fantastic article ran in the Washington Post highlighting the high school program at the Secular Student Alliance. Administrators at Melbourne High School in Melbourne, Fla. rejected an atheist club twice on the grounds it was “too controversial.” Students at another Florida high school were told by administrators that no religious clubs were permitted [Read More...]

Harassment policy at American Atheists

I was invited along with many other FtBers and some other bloggers to sit in on a conference call today to discuss the American Atheists’ new harassment policy. 1.  I appreciated them getting input from us.  They got us together and they actually listened. 2.  Dave Silverman was very frank: he wanted a policy that [Read More...]

Missouri Amendment 2, help me out here.

One of my favorite lines from that interview was when Dan asked how I [Read More...]

Jesse Galef rocks it on CNN (and why I don't have his job)

The contents of this post are the opinions of JT Eberhard, not the Secular Student Alliance. Here’s Jesse’s interview on CNN.  The anchor shoveled propaganda at him and he cut through it like a laid back chainsaw.  Good for him. The man is a savant at his job.  He can hear questions like that, smile, [Read More...]

Death threat #10

Back when Skepticon was getting on its feet, I received nine death threats over the space of two years.  One of them actually made the threat by showing up on my front porch.  Anyway, I decided then that when I hit my tenth death threat I would throw a huge party.  I was certain that [Read More...]
