Rose Hulman was awesome!

The talk at Rose Hulman was, admittedly, not my strongest talk ever, but the Q&A was lengthy and fun.  One of Jen McCreight’s haters had said they were going to show up and pin me down during the Q&A, but they either didn’t show up or lost their nerve. After the talk, one of the [Read More...]

Yipes, and away!

Today I’m off to Terra Haute, Indiana to talk about morality and atheism.  Posting this weekend will be scarce, but I’ll be back on Monday as full of piss and vinegar as ever. I’m just salivating at the thought of dissecting Timothy Dalrymple’s condescending response to me.  Sadly, it will have to wait. [Read more...]

The American Atheists KC Regional Atheist Meeting is coming up!

And boy, will it be a good one!  The lineup features some of my favorite people in the atheist movement: Greta Christina, Al Stefanelli, David Silverman, Amanda Knief, Katherine Stewart, and more.  (Three of those people made my best atheists list) I’ll be working with Hemant Mehta and contributor to this blog, David Burger, to [Read More...]

Speaking updates.

First, a reminder that I’m speaking at the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology on Saturday (to a largely religious audience, I’m told).  Get all the details here. Second, I’ve added the “Speaking Schedule” tab to the top of this page.  That will be updated with where I’ll be mumbling about on stage and when. Third, [Read More...]

Speaking in Indiana on Saturday.

This coming Saturday, September 8th, I’ll be giving a talk at the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology on atheism and morality.  The event will take place from 3pm to 6pm in Moench Hall, Lecture Hall E104.  I suspect there will be either merriment or a lynching afterward, either way you should probably make time after.

Skepticon AMA on reddit tonight

Tonight at 8pm EDT the Skepticon team will be doing an AMA on reddit.  I’ll be in there too, though not as part of the Skepticon team.  It’s their show, but I’ll pipe up if someone has a direct question the event’s origin or for me specifically. These guys make a huge contribution of their [Read More...]

Appearances in the fall.

My speaking schedule for the fall is nearly full.  If you want to get me, time is winding down.  I’m also starting to get gigs in spring of 2013 (American Atheists National Convention, Skeptics of Oz, and Skeptech to name a few).  Crazy times. Here’s how it looks so far. August 1 – Denver, CO [Read More...]

Anybody in Denver want some company?

Poker in the Church is coming up!  It’s a charity event for Foundation Beyond Belief being held at the Freethought Film Festival.  It will take place on August 1 in a nightclub called “The Church,” which looks pretty swanky. It should be fun.  They have a good list of freethought celebrities playing.  My marks will [Read More...]

FtB podcast #2

Last night PZ Myers, Ashley Miller, Chris Rodda, and myself sat down to talk about education.  Enjoy! For help getting through it: Drink every time Chris Rodda says David Barton Drink every time PZ mocks me for video games Drink every time Ashley and I start laughing apparently unrelated to anything happening in the conversation [Read More...]

Come hang out tomorrow

If you’re around Northern Ohio tomorrow, I’ll be at the Mohican State Park (3116 State Rd. 3 in Loudonville, OH) at 11am on July 15 for the Annual Mid Ohio Atheists Summer Picnic.  I’ll be giving a brief talk about community building. I’ll be giving out free hugs to promote a world that doesn’t suck.  [Read more...]
