Agreeing How to Disagree

What if atheists could be the world's best disagreers? Daniel Dennett has some good advice. Also, why the traditional debate format is outdated.

Talking Over Women

Men talk over women too much. The atheist community would be better if we did that less. Let's do it less.

Atheists Mostly Aren't Jerks

Last Sunday's topic ("Why Atheists Are Jerks") was popular, so here are further thoughts on the matter. Is the atheist community really any jerkier than average?

The Sunday Assembly is coming to Seattle on the 28th, and I'm going to be there. It's a church without religion, if that makes any sense. Here's my blog post about it.
