JT Eberhard Speaking in San Francisco and Berkeley, 10/8 and 10/9


Y’all know JT Eberhard, right? Co-founder of Skepticon. Organizer and high school specialist for the Secular Student Alliance. Blogger at WWJTD? Awesome public speaker who tears the roof off the sucker. Badass mofo.

JT is going to be speaking twice in the San Francisco Bay Area, on Oct. 8th and 9th. Once in San Francisco, once in Berkeley. Both times on the topic of “Coming Out Skeptical.” If you’ve never heard him speak before, you do not want to miss it. If you have heard him speak before… you know what I’m talking about.

Here are the details. If you’re in the Bay Area, check it out!

EVENT/ HOSTS: East Bay Atheists
DATE: Saturday, October 8th
TIME: 1:30 – 3:30 PM
LOCATION: Berkeley Main Library, 3rd Floor Meeting Room, 2090 Kittredge St., One Block From Downtown Berkeley BART
TOPIC: Coming Out Skeptical
SUMMARY: “Coming Out Skeptical” addresses the need for atheists to come out of the closet and to not merely focus on their atheism, but on the human obligation to be reasonable. Eberhard will make arguments drawn from history, philosophy, and current events for why a better world is dependent on our ability to be candid with others about the reliability of their beliefs, as well as our ability to be forthright about our own. This talk has been given to standing ovations at the American Atheists National Convention, Dragon*Con, and elsewhere.
COST: Free
Dinner afterwards at King Dong Restaurant, 2429 Shattuck Ave. (near Haste) in Berkeley
