First Speaking Engagement

Some random bits of news. I apologize to all my loyal readers for not writing all last week; it was a hectic five days due to my "day job."

I had the pleasure of giving a talk to the San Diego Atheist Coalition this week. This was especially significant to me, not only because they were a very attentive audience with lots of questions, but also because this was my very first engagement as an author. I've given plenty of lectures to scientific and engineering colleagues, but never before as an author talking about evolution and the history of religion.

And this weekend, I'll have the pleasure of meeting Hemant Mehta, author of I Sold my Soul on EBay, speak to the University of California at Santa Cruz (my home town), to the Student Atheist Coalition. I'm looking forward to a fascinating evening with the Friendly Atheist.

I hope this will be the first of many such talks. If you live in Southern California or the San Francisco Bay Area, and would like a fun and fascinating new way of looking at religion, whether your group is atheist, Evangelical Christian, or anything in between, get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.
