I had the sincere pleasure of attending the Eschaton2012 conference this past December (and helping to organize it, which was one of the reasons for the big pause in my posting). We had a fantastic religion track, which is something that I don’t think gets seen too often at Atheist conferences.

One of the highlights for me was getting to see Dr. Jim Linville of the Dr. Jim’s Thinking Shop blog take many prominent Atheists to task for the casual dismissal of “bronze-age goat herders.” The sound quality leaves a little to be desired, but the talk was really fabulous and highly worth the 45 minutes it takes to watch.
