Appearances tonight and tomorrow.

No morning happiness this morning for a few reasons: 1.  I’m going to be doing a hangout tonight hosted by David Viviano about feminism and atheism.  I’m one of the male feminists they invited (oh, I know that will just tweak some people ).  It’ll be at 10pm EST and I’ll make a post with [Read More...]

Speaking in Minneapolis tomorrow!

Tomorrow morning I’m headed to Minneapolis to give my most popular talk: Skepticism and Mental Illness.  The talk will be from 7-9pm on Thursday, Oct 24 in Folwell Hall room #108.  We’re going to Stub & Herbs afterward for general carousing.

I’m off to Illinois!

Today I set sail for the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where tomorrow night I’ll be speaking about how to effectively argue with religious people.  It should be fun.  The event is open to the public and will take place Wednesday, Oct. 16 in room #161 in Noyes Hall.  Here’s the event page. It’s free, so [Read More...]

Michaelyn (and maybe I) will be on the radio tonight.

When Michaelyn gets done with class today we’ll accompany Skepticon rep Micah Weiss to Kansas City.  There’s some confusion about whether they want me and Michaelyn to talk about Reasonfest or just Michaelyn, but at the very least half of our household will be on KKFI at 7pm CST.  :)  You can listen by following [Read More...]

Tonight you can catch myself and David Fitzgerald (author of Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed at All) on AM 980 KKMS Christian talk radio for a debate about the existence of God, etc.  The presence of Dave means I could pretty much play League of Legends the entire show while he does all [Read More...]

I have an article on richarddawkins.net.

Look, I’m not bragging*, but the RDF just published an article of mine titled “They weren’t lacking in faith, they were lacking in kindness”.  Have you guys seen that story about the pastor who dressed up like a homeless guy?  Yeah, probably not true at all.  But even if it were true, I don’t see [Read More...]

Apostacon has set the standard for atheist conferences.

In 2008 (and really in 2009 at Skepticon 2), my friends and I conceived of a conference that would become the model for many other groups.  It was Skepticon, and it introduced a slew of new ideas to the conference format.  Forgive me a moment of pride when I say it changed things. Apostacon is [Read More...]

On our way to Apostacon!

Hello everybody! Here in a couple of hours Michaelyn and I will be wending our way toward Omaha for that pirate-fest of a convention: Apostacon.  This will double as a sort of anniversary celebration for us, so we’re both hella excited.  I’ve got a couple talks I’m considering giving, so it’ll just have to be [Read More...]
