Next time we’ll be talking about the state of secularism with Cliff Erasmus, Executive Chair of the Centre for Inquiry Alberta.
With the recent launch of the “There’s Probably No God” bus ads in Calgary, atheism has hit Alberta’s mainstream media.
But why is it so important to talk about it now? What’s going on in the province that’s bringing the atheists, humanists and other secularly-focused folks out of the woodwork?
Could it be the teaching of creationism in our small-town public schools? Or the fact that megachurches from Texas have recently moved in? Or is it a product of a more general cultural shift?
Find out what Albertans are up to on the all new next Skeptically Speaking (formerly known as Q Transmissions), every Friday at 6pm on CJSR.
Note: Yes friends, we have a new name, a new format and a new website going LIVE this week! Keep checking this blog for details.

Next episode we’ll be speaking to Dr. PZ Myers, author of the scienceblog Pharyngula: evolution, development, and random biological ejaculations from a godless liberal.
We’ll be speaking to PZ about creationism, the existence of god and being an outspoken atheist in an increasingly fundamentalist society.
