Watch Daniel Dennett’s ‘How to Tell You’re an Atheist’ speech May 28, 2012 This past year at the Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne, famed American cognitive scientist, philosopher and atheist, Daniel Dennett, delivered a speech entitled “How to Tell You’re an Atheist.” Dennett, along with Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens, might best be described as the Holy Trinity of atheism. Where Hitchens was a brilliant, militant and supremely eloquent orator, able to logically eviscerate believers left and right, and Dawkins was the scientist provocateur of the three, Dennett has been the more subtle tactician, combining the best of Hitchens and Dawkins without as much attention. Dennett looks rather like a hybrid of a college philosophy professor and Santa Claus dressed in business-casual attire, which works to his favor: his grandfatherly, non-confrontational approach might be better able to convince the faithful to entertain atheism than Dawkins and Hitchens’ militancy. Watch Dennett deliver his informative but whimsical speech below.

The Planning Models - Natural Planning with GTD - Getting Things Done GTD with Personal Development and Motivation for Success In a previous blog entry , I introduced Chapter 3 of the Getting Things Done book by David Allen.

These planning models are: The Natural Planning Model The Un-Natural Planning Model The Reactive Planning Model

Mind Mapping as an alternative to Linear Notes became the main selling point of Mind Maps. This article introduces you to Mind Map Notes by taking you through a scenario of Janet's notes. How to Make a Mind Map® The 'Laws of Mind Mapping' were originally devised by Tony Buzan when he codified the use of imagery, colour and association and coined the phrase 'Mind Mapping'.

Research Finds that Atheists are Most Hated and Distrusted Minority Intolerance is a bitter beast. There are many groups in America that are subject to discrimination and prejudice, but none are more hated than atheists.

David Allen on How to Fix Your Life - James Fallows As I mentioned earlier today, I've been writing about and learning from the productivity expert David Allen for nearly a decade. Eight years ago, I wrote a profile of him for the magazine. In our newest issue I have highlights from a conversation I had with him, about coping with the modern nightmare of email and all-hours connectedness. This is the kickoff to a monthly series in which Alexis Madrigal and I will take turns interviewing interesting and influential figures in the tech world. I bet most people reading this discussion feel they've hit a crisis point in "busyness," with e-mail, text messages, and all-hours connectivity. Are today's stresses something new?

The beginning of the universe, for beginners - Tom Whyntie Dr. Tom Whyntie completed his PhD in experimental particle physics on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at Imperial College London and CERN, Switzerland. His thesis centered on the (as yet) fruitless search for Dark Matter in the proton-proton collisions of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Dr. How Important is "Objective Truth" to You? - Not The Religious Type A comment from Mike in the "Do Evangelicals 'Hate Jesus?'" post got me thinking. He winningly bemoans his use of doomsday statistics to build his case in sermons or lectures. His comment makes me wonder about the value of spending too much time thinking about allegedly "objective truth" at all. There's a certain treasonous quality to a pastor saying this. And, absolutely, I'm sold on God and the Bible, etc.
