Save the date – April 2!

That’s when Rock Beyond Belief will be rocking Fort Bragg, North Carolina! It’s a completely free day of skeptical entertainment in response to the offensive and religious Rock The Fort.
It’ll be featuring speakers like Dan Barker, Richard Dawkins, Margaret Downey, Dale McGowan, Hemant Mehta, Eugenie Scott, and meeeeeeee! And a bunch of great musicians, too (which does not include me, thankfully for ears of the audience). There are still cool events and information being added (you know there’ll so be a hotel after party), so make sure to keep an eye on their official website.

If you’re near NC, I hope you check out this event! Not only should it be a ton of fun, but it’s a great response to the evangelistic event held last year. And who knows when’s the next time I’ll be anywhere near NC, haha.

And major props to Justin Griffith for being the major force in organizing this – and he just became a daddy a couple of days ago! Congrats, Justin! Best of luck controlling your atheist nature and not eating your baby.

    I hope you realize that you’ve made it. You are now mentioned in the same breath as Dawkins and Downey. I can tell you’re famous, you aren’t part of the “and much more,” you’re name dropped to get asses in seats.

    Is there any talk of spreading this to other forts? For instance Fort Drum.

    It’s because she made those songs with me. You’re welcome, Jen.

    Drop down into South Carolina to see Pearl Fryar’s topiary and sculpture garden. http://www.pearlfryar.com/ It will be about a two-hour drive from Fayetteville. And take the time to try barbeque, in both North Carolina and South Carolina.(My father used to do a lot of work in Fayetteville with Conscientious Objectors and other folk who were having difficulties with the military. He would very much approve of this event and your participation. Thank you.)

    Note that three of the featured speakers are women. Not a plurality but it does put a dent in the “it’s too hard to find women atheists for our event” excuse. Props to the organizers for that.Wish I could attend but it’s too far. And I’m more of a “Symphonies and Chamber Music Beyond Belief” kind of guy anyway. :)

    Re: Barbeque. You know Jen’s trying to lose weight, right? :) Ah, but the siren call and smell of good pulled pork is impossible to resist!
