Adam Brown has posted my talk from Skepticon 3 to the Atheism Resource youtube channel. Rob Lehr, Skepticon’s filmographer, has posted all other available talks to the Hambone Productions youtube channel and is currently re-editing the talks from Skepticon 1 & 2 into the hour-long format. I cannot exaggerate Rob’s generosity enough. He has been tireless in doing all this editing. He has put in an insane amount of hours and he has done it all for free so you guys can see these talks. If you have a second, head over to the Hambone Productions youtube channel, watch a great talk, and thank him!
The next time you can catch me on the road will be this weekend, Feb. 18-20, in Thousand Oaks, CA at the Secular Student Alliance’s Southern California Leadership Summit. I’ll be running a peer problem-solving session for high school students on that Saturday. There will be a host of other awesome speakers there such as Michael Shermer, Jen McCreight, Dan Barker, and Darrel Ray.
This event will also feature the final weigh-in of my weight-loss competition with Jen McCreight! Phil Ferguson will have to do his weigh-in by proxy (he’ll probably do it in his undies, so I’m going to have to lose an extra pound or two). It’s all for charity, so please consider pledging some money per pound to either myself or to Jen.
I will get into town on that Thursday and then I don’t leave until Monday, so I’m going to be free a lot (particularly Thursday and Sunday nights). If you’re in the LA/Thousand Oaks area and want to hang out, throw me a yell.
Am giving two talks. One about effective activism, the other as part of the SSA’s Leadership Track Breakout Session. Interesting story: there will be a guided tour of the area where the Salem witch trials took place afterward – and Jeff Wagg, whom I’ve tussled with before, will be the guide! That should be deliciously awkward. How could I not go?
There will also be a panel featuring what may quite literally be my three favorite women in the atheist movement: Jen McCreight, Debbie Goddard, and Greta Christina.
Notable Speakers: Bart Ehrman, Richard Dawkins, Steven Pinker
Giving a talk over activism in the youth movement.
Notable Speakers: PZ Myers, Christopher Hitchens, Greta Christina
May 21, Fort Hays Wichita State University, Wichita, Kansas
I will return to the town I once lived in for about a year to give a talk (probably Dear Christian) alongside a veritable dream cast of atheist presenters. They’re shooting for May 21, the day on which some Christian sects are saying the world will end. I hear Dr. Carrier’s talk will be called You’re All Gonna Die! How the Jews Kept Failing to Predict Doomsday and Caused Christianity Instead. This one should be a lot of fun!
There is now a web site for this event. It’s free to get in, but registration is required via the web site.
Notable Speakers: Richard Carrier, David Fitzgerald, Darrel Ray, Sam Singleton
There are some others in development, but nothing set in brimstone yet. If you are wanting me to speak, my schedule is closing up really quick, FYI. Get on it!
