Skepticon 3, that hardcore what’s with this god-stuff anyway conference put together by the MSU Chapter of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, will be held this November 19th-21st in Springfield MO. Those scheduled to appear include D.J. Grothe, Joe Nickell, Dan Barker, Richard Carrier, James Randi, P.Z. Myers, Rebecca Watson, Sam Singleton, and Victor Stenger. Lauren Lane and JT Eberhard, salty veterans of past campaigns and two of the organizers of the upcoming Skepticon will be in Columbia to tell us about the conference, why we should be there, and maybe, if we ask nicely, even give us the very meaning of existence itself.
