Skepticon 4 videos are posted…

I wasn’t able to attend this year’s Skepticon (or the 3 that preceded it), but I have a very strong suspicion that I’ll be at SK5. I do, though, enjoy seeing what I’ve missed. I’ve had the great fortune of meeting and spending time with many of the speakers at other events and I love …

The one (of many) where I’m threatened with Hell…

“Matt I heard you talk about your wedding night and how beautiful it was around 11/6 show.  How the stars were beautiful and a pretty clear evening.   And how the prayers of others to stop the hurricane did not prevail.  I have only watched about 30 mins of your show but I’m sure you spend a …

Recovering from Religion has a new Executive Director!

I’ve fallen behind on e-mail, (I was busy getting married) and so I’m late to the party on this. I’ll post the press release below the jump, but let me just take a moment to talk about how important this group is. Some of us have had an easy time freeing ourselves from religion and …

Wedding Transcript

The Magic Sandwich Show did their very best to live-stream the show. (Thanks Aron, Judy and DPR Jones!) Unfortunately, there were various audio problems (my fault, not Aron’s) and while there’s video posted and some people were able to watch it live, it’s virtually impossible to make out what was said – so we’re posting …

Atheists as Vulcans without Machismo? An e-mail exchange…

I recently received the following e-mail query: What do you think about the fringe criticisms against atheism that talk about the setbacks of overly concrete/logical thinking and a lack of abstract, emotional capacity commonly associated with atheists? They criticize atheists (especially Dawkins and people like Dawkins) for being dull, unpleasant, lacking machismo and being unappealing …
