I love Oklahoma– Great school, great cost of living, genuinely nice folks, and believe it or not, a fantastic atheist/skeptic scene.
You all know about FreeOK (one and my talk isnt up yet from two… SEEEETH!), organized by Atheist Community of Tulsa and the OKC Atheists. Those groups are amazing, outside of the conference. Ive mentioned it numerous before, but whether you are into a quiet night of boardgames or partying it up at karaoke, need support/confidence/advice for dealing with radical theist relatives or want to go see ‘The Hobbit’ with some folks, want to learn something new at a talk by an OKC Atheist member on science or politics or spend the day volunteering at a food bank, OKC Atheists are the closest Ive seen any group come to rivaling the social netowrk provided by theistic groups.
People are finally starting to notice!
December 16th, the OKC Atheists will be featured on the CBS Morning News!!! They wanted to do a story on the ‘Nones’, and the OKC Atheists are a *fantastic* choice for exposing ‘Normies’ to the ‘Nones’.
And if Im the only skeptical blogger you know of from OK, you are missing out.
Of course we have Caleb Lack, who Ive featured a couple times before. Psychology and skepticism? YES, please!
We also have Damion– Law + Math + Skepticism + Biting Wit/Observations
And you remember CJ? My partner-in-crime when we went into a den of anti-vaxxers? He has a really cool blog now, too, called ‘Odd Oklahoma‘ about all the odd-but-interesting things we have right here in Oklahoma!
