Thank you to the American Atheists crowd

At the American Atheists conference I was scheduled to speak at the costume dinner (which had a price tag of $200 $50 to get in, I believe).  All day on twitter people were wondering if people who didn’t pay for the dinner could get in to see my talk.  Dave Silverman, who freaking rules, saw [Read More...]

Michael Bay has really crossed the line

Michael Bay is rebooting the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, but with a twist: the beloved, zany terrapins from my youth are now aliens.  Yes, aliens. Cracked.com pretty much sums up my reaction. [Read more...]

Reason Rally pics

Here are some pics (Michaelyn took them).  I have moar to upload but the internet here could suck a watermelon through a garden hose. I imagine I’ll do a summation post tomorrow. [Read more...]

Thank you

As a student I met famous atheists who struck me as pompous.  I would watch some of them give talks and then disappear.  These things disgusted me.  They were a real reason behind the structure of Skepticon which did not have a green room so it forced the speakers to mingle and share time with [Read More...]

What a day! Start of day 2 of the greatest adventure!

Yesterday was wonderful.  Pennsylvania is gorgeous (possibly more so because we were using Ohio as a basis for comparison). Late last night we finally arrived Hagerstown, MA where we’re denning up for the night.  Immediately Conan the Bar-Bear-ian started jumping up and down on the bed like a child. I swear we can’t take that [Read More...]

On tattoos.

Christina here. I have tattoos. I enjoy them – to me, my skin is a canvas. Sure, I have to live my skin my entire life – but that does not prevent me from scarring it accidentally, and does not prevent the changes to it that come with age. To that end, I may as [Read More...]

How to be wrong.

Christina here… Back in January, I listened to a This American Life podcast called “Mr. Daisy and the Apple Factory” which was based on the monologue The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs by Mr. Mike Daisy, who traveled to China to observe working conditions at the factories which produce Apple products. On Monday, [Read More...]

The greatest adventure!

I’m a morning person.  Michaelyn is not.  So I’m bouncing up and down on the bed exclaiming that I love her and that it’s time for adventure.  She is smiling in her thwarted attempts to return to sleep. She just said, “Are you blogging?” “Yup.” “Whyyyyyyyyyyyy?” “Because we’re live-blogging our adventure today!” “The adventure hasn’t [Read More...]

Reason Rally almost here

Tomorrow Michaelyn gets into town and then Wednesday we are road tripping to DC for the Reason Rally!  We will be live-blogging the whole journey and we will be joined by our atheist bear (courtesy of CASH at the University of Minnesota). [Read more...]

I'm a goat

Atheists live cold, terrible, miserable lives. Michaelyn and the little one are undoubtedly thinking about how this is all meaningless without believing someone rose from the dead 2,000 years ago. The only heavens are the ones we make in this world.  It’s a pity when people lose out on a moment of heaven in this [Read More...]
