9 a.m. Wyndham Hotel. Free.
REASON IN THE ROCK
Supposedly, there's gonna be this "Reason in the Rock"
event this weekend, offering a platform for "atheists" and "agnostics" and "skeptics" and various other "free thinkers" and whatnot to spread their non-beliefs to the gullible masses. I don't know, I guess I buy it. They've got a pretty good website and all.
Ah, I'm just joshing. I honestly do believe that a good crowd of non-believers will gather this weekend at the Wyndham Hotel in Little Rock to discuss how everything is just a big sham.
Featured speakers include: Lecia Brooks
, outreach director of the Southern Poverty Law Center; Matt Dillahunty
of The Atheist Experience and Non-Prophets Radio; Skeptics in the Pub founders Kyle Sanders
and Ben Bell
(no relation to me), and American Atheists president David Silverman
, among many others. There are some really excellent-sounding presentations, including: "Can My Employer Take Religion into Account in Making Employment Decisions?"; "Breaking The Cycle: How to Help Kids Out of Religion," and "Taking Control of Your Atheist Sexuality."
