Next week I’ll be delivering a series of four lectures at Oklahoma Baptist University with the following titles:
(1) “What is the Flying Spaghetti Monster and why should I care?”
(2) “God, Meaning, and Life on this Pale Blue Dot”
(3) “Christian Faith in the Graveyard of Dead Gods”
(4) “God, Faith, and the Myth of the Freethinker”
I’ll also be delivering an evening public lecture on the Bible and violence. (You can read more about the series here.)
For four or five years now, I’ve been picking at a book project tentatively titled Apologetics after the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Last year I spent much of the month of May working on the project. Unfortunately, after a couple hundred pages of writing I found the project losing focus and once again it went on the shelf.
Preparing these lectures for OBU has provided me the opportunity to reorganize my thoughts on this book. So my hope is that I can now use these lectures as a template to write the book in the next few months.
