Hi Guys!

I am very excited to announce an atheist speaker on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. New York Time on the topic, “God Doesn’t Exist”. JT Eberhard was a campus organizer and high school specialist with the Secular Student Alliance, author of the blog What Would JT Do?, and has been a contributing author to AtheismResource.com.

Before joining the SSA, JT was most known as a debater on atheism and LGBT rights and as the co-founder of the Skepticon annual conference. From 2008-2010, JT worked as the organizing team leader for Skepticon 1, 2, and 3. The event would usher in a new format of conventions featuring rock star lineups while allowing people to attend for free.

JT also co-founded and led the SSA-affiliated Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster at Missouri State. The group would go on to make news on several occasions, often for their unconventional approach to combating religion such as building a cardboard box fort in the middle of campus to counter-protest evangelists or massing on their school’s free speech zone with expletive-bearing signs in response to the school saying bands could not use coarse language.

JT is an accomplished speaker having given plenary talks at Skepticon, the American Atheists National Conference, the SSA Leadership Conference, the American Humanist Association’s National Convention, Dragon*Con, and multiple campuses and community groups all across the country. As a debater, he has paired with other high profile atheists such as Richard Carrier, Victor Stenger, and Matt Dillahunty.

Outside of his work as an activist, Eberhard is a veteran of the Springfield Regional Opera’s Young Artist Program. A baritone, JT has a handful of professional roles to his credit with various companies including work under the directorship of two-time Grammy-winner James Billings.

He has videos on YouTube if you wish to familiarize yourself with him prior to Saturday.

Make plans to be here this Saturday night !!!
