Zombies: two new articles on surviving.

Last non-atheism post before I start plodding through the news.  I have a slew of new zombie survival articles over at ShitZombiesSay.net. From Preparing for an evacuation: stay cool, stay comfortable, plan ahead: The even bigger concern is what to do once you’ve gotten out of the building.  What are your goals?  Where do you [Read More...]

Mayor of Toledo welcomes the Great Lakes Atheist Convention.

The Great Lakes Atheist Conference is off to a great start. It opened with a great surprise: Rebecca Vitsmun was added as a speaker at the last minute.  She was the Oklahoma woman who told Wolf Blitzer “Actually, I’m an atheist.”  I was lucky enough to get to ride from the airport in the same [Read More...]

I’m going back to Ohio already!

This weekend I’ll return to Ohio, Toledo specifically, to speak at the Great Lakes Atheist Convention.  There will be many speakers there I know and love including Jerry Dewitt, Zack Kopplin, and the glorious (and remarkably classy) Sam Singleton.  There will also be many speakers I’ve never heard give a public presentation – which is [Read More...]

Could the USA secure our border if the zombie apocalypse begins in Mexico or Canada?

I saw this video the other day and it got me thinking: Could the US secure our border in the case of a zombie apocalypse if necessary?  I examine possible ways it could be done and give commentary on my newest article over at Shit Zombies Say.  Here’s an excerpt: Could we build a fence?  [Read More...]

Videos of my FtBCon panels from this weekend.

I was on some panels at FtBConscience this weekend.  The first was Atheist Music hosted by Brianne Bilyeu.  It was good to see the faces of some very dear friends, Ashley Miller and Shelley Segal.  They’re really good people.  I’m also a huge fan of Roy Zimmerman and didn’t know he was going to be [Read More...]

Catch me at FTBConscience this weekend without even leaving your house. :)

Freethoughtblogs is running a fully online conference this weekend.  I like the idea.  Frankly, I’m kind of pissed that I didn’t think of it first. Anyway, the lineup is pretty spectacular.  It includes every FtB writer along with some Patheos writers like myself, Hemant Mehta, and Dan Fincke.  There are also movement leaders like Dave [Read More...]

How will the zombie virus spread? Hint: probably not by bites.

I have another zombie article posted.  In this one I lament that virtually nobody is preparing for the virus in the form we’re likely to see. One of the biggest problems facing anybody in a zombie scenario is that there are so many unknowns.  This is exacerbated by the fact that so many people are [Read More...]

Coming to a Pennsylvania near you!

I got an email from the organizers of the 2013 Pennsylvania State Atheist/Humanist Conference asking me to plug the event.  No prob!  I know some of the organizers and they’re some of the best people I know.  I’m really excited to be there (I know Seth Andrews is locked down to appear as well). They [Read More...]

My first zombie article! Squeeeeeeeee!

Ok, I’m heading out the door now, but I just couldn’t wait to post this.  But the site that hired me to write zombie blogs is now live and my first post is up!  Here’s an excerpt: …if you want to survive a massive zombie disaster, you don’t want to be a hero.  Guns?  Yeah, [Read More...]
