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...]

Atheists and Sunday mornings

This morning I sent my father a section from a blog I’m writing of which I was particularly proud.  He wrote back… Nice to see you with your nose to the blog grindstone so bright and early on a Sunday morning. Kind of makes me sad, though, that when someone says they will get eternal [Read More...]

New office!

The Secular Student Alliance is growing by leaps and bounds – which means bigger office space!  Today we’re moving to a much nicer facility where all the campus organizing team will not be in the same room!  Lyz Liddell will have her own office from which she will gaze down on her underlings and sip [Read More...]

How to not make people groan during a Q&A

I just got back from Michigan.  Will do a write up of the debate…tomorrow? Anyway, I’m going to take the rest of the day to catch up on sleep, but first I wanted to give some friendly advice.  I speak a lot, so I do a lot of Q&As.  There are certain behaviors that make [Read More...]
