Skepticon IV will take place November 19 – 20 in Springfield, MO: http://skepticon.org/schedule.php.
The event is billed as the largest conference of its kind in the Midwest. It’s a free event and should be a good time, considering you probably don’t find yourself surrounded by other atheists too often. I will be attending, so anyone who wants to have a beer or anything should let me know.
Here are some things that stand out to me as promising:
- The day before the conference (Friday), there will be a group trip to The Creation Museum of the Ozarks
- Eliezer Yudkowsky’s presentation
- Richard Carrier’s presentation on Bayes Theorem, which is subtitled, ‘that’s right, I’m teaching you math, bitches!’
- Spencer Greenberg’s presentation
You can register here. I hope to see you there!
