Fun times in Seattle

Not sleepless, though. Seriously, my hotel bed was the most comfortable thing ever. Slept like a baby. I think I’ve figure out my sleep problems: stop sleeping in beds that are older than I am. Anyway, Seattle and the University of Washington was a lot of fun. The whole time I was there it was …

Indiana mom freaks out about harmless fundraiser

I just saw this on the news at the airport, and I knew I had to look it up. An Indiana mom is upset at a fundraiser the Elwood school system has been using for the last 15 years. What could this evil fundraiser be? The middle school sex-a-thon? A baby eating contest? Selling the …

I was listening to the radio on my way to the airport this morning, mainly to have some noise on to keep me awake. I was vaguely listening to some commercial about a benefit concert being held at West Lafayette High School, when a clip from the musical group was played: “Jesus, help me see …

The results are in! During our Send an Atheist to Church event, the Society of Non-Theists at Purdue University raised… $362.95 for Food Finders Food Bank! That is so amazing! I wasn’t sure if we’d even raise $100, but we blew past that goal! And for those of you who are wondering about the more …

I’m just a stupid undergrad, apparently

I stopped by our Send an Atheist to Church event between my classes to see how it was going. A professor (I won’t say from which department, don’t want to identify him) was debating with club members working the table. He had initiated the discussion, and I wasn’t paying much attention until the topic turned …

Send an Atheist to Church: Preliminary results

About a week ago I mentioned how the Society of Non-Theists would be holding a Send an Atheist to Church event. Yesterday was our first day, and we exceeded expectations!
