He’s the organizer for the Gateway To Reason conference coming up this July in St Louis, and apparently, a few of my hatin’ leeches have been pressuring him to drop me from the speaker lineup. Most ironically, a blogger who declares himself a
voice for inclusiveness in the atheism and skepticism movements is now writing to all of the other speakers, asking them to add to the pressure to get me booted (I also apologize to all of you, too). This kind of thing happens a lot: I’ve had kooks write to all of the faculty at UMM to denounce me. It gets old fast, I’m afraid.
I’ve just got a little clique of very angry trolls clinging to my tail. They tend to be yappy and annoying, but just ignore them: they’re also few in number, negligible in influence, and in the end, will have no effect at all, either pro or con.
But hey, I’ve been reassured by an ignoramus that drama brings traffic, so this is a bonus: I’ll show up, be nice and polite, try to give an interesting talk, and you’ll also get the extra traffic from all this imaginary drama!
So everybody should register for Gateway To Reason — it’s like there is going to be an explosion of fury and drama there. (No money back if it turns out to be friendly and thoughtful instead.)
