That’s almost 5 times as much as last year, and means the data will be even more robust. But remember – this data doesn’t necessarily represent atheists as a whole, but rather people …

Another quarter has started

Which means I’ll be geeking away with new classes! Proteomics – This will be interesting, mainly because I know nothing about it. Well, I mean, I know what proteins are, but I’m not familiar studying them in a large-scale way. We’ll see how it goes. Introduction to Statistical Genomics – Just an introductory statistics course, …

This is what an atheist looks like

This week was “A Week” on Facebook – a campaign for atheists to make their profile picture an A to show that we do, in fact, exist. Except that…well, no one except atheists know what the “A” symbol means – heck, many atheists don’t even know what it is. The UNI Freethinkers and Inquirers have …

I survived Minnesota! …barely

Man, do those Campus Atheists, Skeptics, and Humanists know how to party. My talk went really well and had around 80-90 people show up – and about 30 of those joined us for the pub. Then, proving that CASH knows their guest speaker very well, we headed to The Gay 90s in downtown Minneapolis for …

The perfect opening act for my talk

This was the room schedule from my talk in St. Cloud. Anyone who accidentally stuck around likely would have been very, very confused. Of course, prior to my talk I received the most convincing argument for the existence of God, so many I would have been a little more gentle than usual. I mean, what …
