It looks like the Canadian tour has been postponed, and I had to cancel the trip to Minnesota for personnel reasons. (That’s not a typo) So Skepticon was last presentation of 2013. I’ve only been on 21 airplanes this year. Compared to 33 last year! But to be fair, I think I drove to most of this year’s events.
Anyway, it’s weird but after more than two years of giving at least one presentation every single month, I find myself without any confirmed dates on my horizon. So I’m taking that opportunity to get back to my book. I promised the publisher that I would, and I’m having fun doing it. Chapter III should be done by the end of this week, but it requires that I re-read the gospels afresh. Wow.
I read Matthew again this evening. So much I forgot. How the fuck did anybody ever read this and manage to believe it? I’m not going to go into details; y’all already know it all. But I retire this evening shaking my head the gullibility and hypocrisy of the people who claim to believe in and follow this ridiculous book.

Reading the Bible was what convinced me to jettison Christianity.
Reading the Bible from cover to cover* is what made me an atheist. I was 16.
*Okay, I kinda skipped over the begets, and I never did quite finish Revelations. It was just too weird, and I kept trying and failing to make any sense of it. Maybe someday I’ll get a copy of Asimov’s guide to the bible an try again.
Reading the Bible, page by page?
Proof of the truth.
You are a masochist.
Your publisher is a sadist.
Your fans eagerly await the resulting agony.
Happy Newton Day
I hope your book will be available on Kindle.
