Pictures from day 1 of Apostacon 14.

Despite all the psychological difficulties, day 1 was a great deal of fun.  I wound up getting about 800 calories down and spent a fair amount of time out of the room.  Here’s hoping day 2 goes well. Here are some pics from yesterday: [Read more…]

Listen to Dogma Debate from last night with myself, Cara Santa Maria, David Fitzgerald, and Darrel Ray.

Hey guys.  I know I said last night that this episode of Dogma Debate would go live at 10pm EST…then Neil DeGrasse Tyson went more than an hour over time (which nobody gave a shit about because it’s NDT).  So we didn’t get started until way late, so here’s the audio for those who missed [Read More…]

Catch me on the Dogma Debate podcast at 10pm EST/7pm PST.

Hey guys.  I’m at Apostacon and doing ok.  My workshop today was standing room only, which amazed me considering I was sharing a time slot with Amanda Knief and Muhammad Syed.  I figured I’d have two people in my room, but the turnout was unbelievably flattering.  I hope a few people learned something. I’ve had [Read More…]

Air Force does the right thing, guarantees me blog material for weeks.

The Air Force has made the phrase “so help me god” in the enlistment oath optional: Abby Ohlheiser reported late yesterday that the Air Force has agreed to change its approach.

Missouri attorney sends taunting letter to lesbian denied partner benefits.

Having gone to school at Missouri State University, I’m aware of local attorney Dee Wampler.  He’s a hyper-religious asshole, and that’s about the nicest thing I can say of him.  Everybody locally knows his reputation. And I see in the news this morning that some things never change.  A longtime firefighter in the area is [Read More…]

Got spare money and want to make atheism accessible to everybody? Consider helping Skepticon.

Skepticon represents a pretty swell ideal: make influential and upcoming voices in atheism/skepticism available to everybody – and that includes everybody who can’t even afford $5 for a ticket.  That’s why it’s always free and why the talks are always uploaded for all (but with advertisements, all of the proceeds of which go to charity).

Hirsi Ali speaks at Yale despite protests from the Yale Humanists.
