Here’s a pic.  From left to right it’s Darrel Ray, Al Stefanelli, myself, and Ed Buckner.  Ed has been building me up as a god of public speaking.  No pressure [Read More...]

Updates for Skepticon 5

Skepticon 5, the world’s largest free atheist/skeptics event, is rolling merrily along.  They’re rolling out this year’s speakers slowly, with promises to release more immediately if they meet their fundraising goals.  The first four speakers have been announced and, I dare say, it would be a worthwhile trip just to see this group for free.

The episode of Dogma Debate with me is up.  I gave props to David Fitzgerald, PZ Myers, Richard Carrier, my sweetie, the SSA, the organizers of Skepticon V (specifically Jeff, Micah, and Katie), Darrel Ray, Kate Donovan, and Richard Haynes.  I was like a walking billboard. It was a lot of fun.  Dave, Daniel, and [Read More...]

Atheist poker for charity

Bumping this up! Remember any donations above the cost of my plane ticket go to Foundation Beyond Belief.  I come from a whole family of card players.  Poker is commonly played when I visit my childhood home.  So when I got the invite to be a “celebrity” player (how do you say that without sounding [Read More...]
