Freethought Festival is rocking

This is an exceptionally well-run event.  Even Skepticon could pick up some pointers from this event (and that’s saying quite a lot). I started the day by catching up with Richard Carrier.  I also got to meet Valerie Tarico (whom I have to follow today, ugh).  She is super sweet and a very attentive listener.  [Read More…]

Make everything better

Man, there’s been a lot of aggravating stuff to write about lately.  As an antidote to the badness, I offer this video. And if that doesn’t work, there’s always this button.  Have a good day, everybody!  Changing the world is a slow process, but look back just ten years and remember we’ve made a metric [Read More…]

A child crossed my path and lived

For Easter I had the opportunity to plant my swampy ass in church and listen to someone who has no better reason to think he knows squat about the will or existence of god than any other believer of any other religion.  The other option was to go with Michaelyn to hang out with her [Read More…]

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…]
