Jerry DeWitt: he’s still got it.

Jerry DeWitt is perhaps the kindest new face in the atheist movement.  He’ll be at Skepticon this year (not as a speaker, just hanging out).  I strongly urge you to track him down and spend a few minutes with him.  He’s amazing. He and I got to hang out at Reason in the Rock, which [Read More...]

Reason in the Rock is rocking!

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  Reason in the Rock is under way! The emcee opened by saying we’re not here to bash anyone else’s beliefs.  I guess I’ll be spending the entire morning re-writing my talk… First speaker up is Teresa MacBain, whom I met just last night.  She is very soft-spoken and very kind.  I expected her to [Read More...]

Tuesday conversation: Skepticon.

Of course I’m biased, being the event’s co-founder and original organizer, but Skepticon is my favorite event of the year.  The environment is like no other.  The place is an endorphin farm. So for those of you who have been, what were your thoughts?  Are you going back?  If so, why?  What is your favorite [Read More...]

Lauren Lane is not ready for Skepticon 5.

This is my friend Lauren Lane, Skepticon co-founder and one of the organizers to this very day, getting ready for Skepticon 5. Because at Skepticon, we do everything with way more intensity than the task requires. Skepticon! from Kaitlyn Chandler on Vimeo. The whole WWJTD team (Christina, Dr. Dave, Michaelyn, and Steven) will be at [Read More...]

Reason in the Rock 2012.

In a few weeks I’ll be appearing in Little Rock, Arkansas for Reason in the Rock.  The lineup is to die for: Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist), Jerry DeWitt, Teresa MacBain, Lauren Lane (co-founder of Skepticon), Aron Ra, and others.  The lineup is enough to get me excited about this one, but I’m also excited [Read More...]

Modifications to my Skepticon 5 name tag.

At Skepticon 4 I gave a personal account of my struggle with anorexia, depression, and hallucinations.  It took quite a bit out of me and I’ve declined to give it again every since (though now I think I’d be willing again). But it was very worth it.  Everywhere I speak now I have people give [Read More...]

Pics from KC RAM.

Here are some of the pics Michaelyn took this weekend.  They include contributors to this site Steven Olsen and Dr. Dave, along with John Corvino, Steven’s baby Marcus Sagan Olsen, and others. [Read more...]

Richard Carrier on why you should go to Skepticon 5.

Richard Carrier has a post up talking about why you should go to Skepticon 5.  Dr. Carrier is one of my heroes and influences…and he says my specialty is ass kicking.  My life is not complete. This year Skepticon is happening a little earlier than usual, November 9 to 11 (2012). Things start Friday (workshops [Read More...]

In Rolla, and I’m all out of gum…

I’m in Rolla, Missouri safe and sound!  Tonight I will attend (and live blog) Frank Turek’s lecture along with the Missouri S&T Secular Student Alliance.  Frank Turek is the author of I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist, one of the most effectively vomit-inducing collection of lies and bad arguments in existence.  I’m [Read More...]

Interview on Atheist Nomads.

I was the interviewee on Atheist Nomads last week.  We covered a wide array of topics from the intersection of science to mental illness to retrogaming to whether or not I was wearing pants. Lots of the good people in this movement get shout outs. Check the episode out here. [Read more...]
