In a few hours I’ll be joined by radio veteran Jamila Bey and “Quiverfull” survivor Vyckie Garrison, to discuss being an “out” atheist an winning arguments with various types of people. Hope you’ll tune in.
I’ll also post open threads on this blog later today about Beth Presswood’s panel, “God is Love?” and the video game panels today and tomorrow that will be attended by me and Lynnea, respectively. See you there!
Here’s a quick outline of my section of the talk (subject to being abridged if there’s a lot of back-and forth conversation):
- Why should atheists evangelize?
- Does it even work?
- On “Playing to win”
- Approaching people you know, or: On being a dick
- Identifying your audience
- Sources of information
Vyckie Garrison will take on the REALLY hard stuff: how to talk to fundamentalists.
