Saturday and Sunday To-Do: Reason in the Rock

REASON IN THE ROCK
9 a.m. Wyndham Hotel. Free.


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."

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
