Lilac, to answer your question, we're not getting the kind of spectacular turnouts you see at, say, The Amazing Meeting or FreeOK, but we do effectively fill the venue (Lions Park Lodge) which we've been using to date, and our books are still in the black after we're done paying the bills.I would LOVE to do something here the size of a convention, but that would require a lot more scratch and time to put together, and it would likely have to have a far more regional reach to it. I will say this, though: we did get one person who came from CHILE to see Aron!!! No, I'm NOT kidding!
If men were the automatons that behaviorists claim they are, the behaviorist psychologists could not have invented the amazing nonsense called 'behaviorist psychology." So they are wrong from scratch -- as clever and as wrong as phlogiston chemists.-- Robert A. Heinlein, The Notebooks of Lazarus LongNot sure I agree with this 100%, but it does put an interesting face on the whole concept of free will, don't it?
Are you getting good turnout?
Loren, with the names you've mentioned, you certainly are setting a standard. Good for you!
Loren, what a great opportunity!
BTW, that should be FFRF, and NOT FRFF! [grumble!] FFRF is, of course, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and NOFS is its local chapter, the Northern Ohio Freethought Society.
Twenty-seven years after the first IPCC report, emissions this year will be 60% higher than in 1990; abject failure despite the wealth of knowledge we’ve accrued on both the problem and what we need to do about it.
Great Bertrand Russell quote, Loren!
Chris, those wonderful Dutch saying take a bit of thinking. I guess US sayings take a bit of thinking as well. Great link!
I had the distinct honor and pleasure to introduce a most noted atheist at the FRFF / NOFS "Party in the Park" yesterday, and these are some of HIS works I used in his introduction: Faith is an assertion of absolute conviction that is assumed without reason and is defended against all reason. I believe what I do is a logical consequence of my understanding of the facts, and my position will obligately change according to my information. If you can’t show it, you don’t know it. -- Aron Ra
