Firstly I'd like to apologise profusely for my unexplained absence. I would like to blame it on external circumstances but that simply isn't the case. I haven't really had much to say, and grow increasingly frustrated with the seemingly impervious-to-criticism nature of the myriad of theistic positions. More on that in a later post though.
Onto the point of the post: The NZ Skeptics Conference is here for 2011, and I'll be attending, and any readers from New Zealand should attend too! It's in Christchurch this year and is set for Fri 26 August - Sun 28 August. As always, there is an interesting series of talks (each with their own Q&A period).
