Tales from the road.

My talk at the University of Missouri last night went swimmingly.  Afterward, MU SASHA, the SSA affiliate at the school, went out to the bar and dragged me along.  There, they attempted to pull a CASH (the SSA group at the University of Minnesota, which has a reputation for attempting homicide on all speakers who [Read More…]

On Zach Alexander’s review of Chris Stedman’s book.

Zach Alexander has a solid review up of Chris Stedman’s new book in which he is rightly critical in a few places and rightly praising in some others.  It’s long, but worth the read.  I’m going to touch on the parts I think are important. The most obvious problem is that even as Chris extolls [Read More…]

He is the chosen one.

Tomorrow night, I’ll be speaking at the University of Missouri, courtesy of SASHA, the SSA affiliate at the school.  I’ll spend an hour explaining why a lot of the arguments for god’s existence suck, take some questions, and then party on into the night.  Swing by if you’re free.  Bring your congregation. I’m staying at [Read More…]

My business in Springfield.

Upon arriving at my hotel room at Skepticon 5 I found the following piece of paper upon my pillow. To Our Guests In ancient times there was a prayer for “The Stranger within our gates” Because this hotel is a human institution to serve people, and not soley a money making organization, we hope that [Read More…]

Thank you.

There was a time in my life, not long ago, when, for the first time, I had $1,000 in the bank.  It didn’t last long, but it was a proud achievement. I’m about to hit the road for the eight-hour drive to St. Louis (hence why you’ll see a lot of content from other writers [Read More…]

Happy Halloween!

It’s been a very cynical day in the news.  That sucks, because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! So here’s a Dalek.  Happy Halloween everybody!    Be safe tonight. The Halloween candy I find irresistible: Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.  They’re so good.  I’m eating light today just because I know Cambridge is going to [Read More…]

Paul Kurtz has died.

While I knew of the man, I admittedly knew very little about him.  It seems nearly criminal at this point to acknowledge that I’ve read all of Lee Strobel’s books, but none penned by Kurtz.  He was simply not one of my heroes. The only side of Kurtz I got to see was the aging [Read More…]

When the monster was born.

I was not popular in high school.  I wanted to be.  Didn’t we all? Initially I tried being like everybody else and found I wasn’t any good at it.  So eventually I took off in the complete opposite direction, bucking all social norms and claiming that I didn’t care for acceptance.  Of course, that was [Read More…]

Greta Christina has cancer. We can help.

One of my dearest friends, who has been a hero to me for much of my adulthood and who continues to be an inspiration to myself and others, Greta Christina, has been diagnosed with cancer. As far as cancer goes, it’s the good kind.  She has endometrial cancer and they caught it early, so odds [Read More…]
