Richard Dawkins and Nightwish

October 2012, I got to see Nightwish at a small venue in OKC. 1– This was one of the first nights Floor Jansen was officially the New Singer for Nightwish. She blew me away. 2– This was a *tiny* venue. Nightwish fills huge stadiums and auditoriums all over the world, but OKC? Teeny venue. And that…

If you havent bought your ticket to this years FreeOK, do so ASAP! Theyre in serious danger of selling out this year! This also means that you should get to the event early, because if they are close to selling out, it also means it will be hard to get rows of seats together, if…

The Thinking Atheist and ERV!

A few weeks ago, The Thinking Atheist was in town– He gave us a sweet preview of the new video hes planning on officially unveiling at the American Atheists convention and  signing copies of his new book “Deconverted“. Beforehand, he set up some camera equipment and did quick impromptu interviews with fellow OK Skeptics Caleb…

Last week, The Thinking Atheist interviewed psychologist/blog cousin Caleb Lack, the president of OKC Atheists Red McCall, and me. After seeing the videos Seth made for Caleb, I AM SCARED TO DEATH. CALEBS VIDS ARE SO GOOD. I didnt say anything nearly that eloquent or interesting! And DAMN Seth! The production quality of those vids!…

OKC Atheists on CBS Sunday Morning News

We were all so excited for this opportunity, but it wasnt supposed to be like this. It wasnt supposed to be a piece on atheists, sandwiched between images of people mourning over slaughtered children and school officials. But thats what it is. And its fine– CBS didnt do a hack piece on us or anything……

Saturday Shillery: Oklahoma!

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…

Veterans Day parades. Thanksgiving parades.  Christmas parades.  Halloween parades.  St. Patricks Day parades.  MLK Day parades.  Gay Pride parades.  Fourth of July parades. Parades are a fantastic way for atheists to advertise, get positive exposure, and reach out to a wide variety of people… … If you do it right.  If you do it wrong,…

Atheists in OKC

Just in time to promote FreeOK2, theres a really nice article on OKC.net about OKC Atheists! To that end, McCall said the vast majority of people who join AOK are coming from a religious background of some kind, and whatever their former denomination, most are used to having a network of people to turn to…
