If you’re in or near Fayetteville, Arkansas this Friday, some hear me speak! JT Eberhard and I are doing a joint speaking event at the University of Arkansas, hosted by the school’s godless/ skeptical group, Occam’s Razors.
I’ll be speaking on “Happy Thoughts about Godless Death,” and JT will speak about “Reason as a Moral Obligation.” There’ll be snacks and social time first, Q&A afterwards, and then more hanging out. More details, including a map and directions, are on the group’s Facebook page. Come by and say howdy!

TIME: Snacks at 6:00 pm; talks begin at 7:00 pm
LOCATION: Old Main, Giffels Auditorium, University of Arkansas
TOPIC: Happy Thoughts about Godless Death
SUMMARY: One of the most difficult things about leaving religion is letting go of belief in the afterlife. What are some ways that atheists can find comfort and meaning in the face of death?
JT’s TOPIC: Reason as a Moral Obligation
SUMMARY: JT will explain why it is important for us to think logically about the world. The talk will encourage intellectual thinking, which is a fundamental part of being a skeptic.

Hope to see you there!
