Skepticon 3 talks are rolling out

Thanks to Rob Lehr, Skepticon‘s filmographer, and Hambone Productions, videos of the Skepticon 3 are beginning to roll out.  John Corvino’s talk is the first to be released and can be viewed here.  Make no mistake: there’s a lot of hours that have gone into getting these videos to you guys, and Rob has done it without complaint. He’s kinda the man.

With the new job and the move, I have taken a gigantic step back in terms of responsibility in the production of Skepticon 4.  I am still in charge of acquiring speakers though, and I assure you that this guy will be back.

I should also take a moment to say that the new Skepticon team is fucking fantastic.  I have never worked with a group of people who so dependably got shit done.  Ryan, Katie, Rob, Lauren, Steven, and Blythe are unreal, and will make sure Skepticon 4 kicks every ass in the bible belt.

    No. We hate irrationality. We hate the malicious results of irrationality. This prompts us to hate religion, which canonizes irrationality as a virtue.

    But we don't hate Christians so long as they're trying to be rational. The problem is that so many of them are trying to finding excuses to be irrational, and we hold them accountable for that (or at least we should).

      Ditto to JT – agreed.

    Corvino's talk might have been my favorite of all of those at Skepticon 3. Thank so much for posting it.

    And in answer to your question, Morrison…some atheists hate Christians; others do not. All it takes to be an atheist is to not be a theist (a believer in at least one god). In that vast mass of people you will find hate, love, rationality, irrationality, and every other dimension of personality that a person who lacks belief in gods can have.
