A Pastafarian Sex Prayer

I gave this prayer at the KU ReasonFest May 7, 2011.  I wasn't to sure if I should use it, but after giving it, have had many people request a copy. It was the prelude to my talk on our Sex and Secularism Survey results.  You can see the youtube of the prayer at: Sex Prayer  Here is the full text of the prayer:

URGENT special request. Please pass along to relevant people. I have spoken to hundreds of people who have great stories to tell about how religion impacted their sex and sexuality. I cannot say much right now about why the urgency and who this is for, but trust me, it will be worth it.  I need people who have compelling stories about how religion impacted their sex life.  Contact me immediately with a 3-4 sentence description and whether you are willing to do one or more of these…

NY Post

The New York Post did a story on our research on Saturday.  Too bad we had to compete with Rapture Day.  I think our message has more practical value.

Why This Sex and Secularism Research is Important?

Why This Research is Important?


            The Sex and Secularism survey report is out.  We have worked hundreds of hours analyzing the data and writing and rewriting the report, going over it with academics, taking feedback and criticism and incorporating a lot of it.  Why is this report important enough to spend this kind of time on?  Secularists don’t know a lot about their own community.  Unlike Baptists or Catholics, we don’t have entire organizations dedicated to…

Sam Harris on Religious Moderates

Sam Harris on Religious Modrates

Reason Fest

Reason Fest at Kansas University was a hit.  Good to have something close to my home and meet lots of secularists right here in Kansas.  Congrats to Conrad Hudson and all his team for success at a first ever event.  It was also fun to meet Hemant Mehta for the first time and have he and 9 others all staying at my home.  We had waaaay to much fun.
