Hi George! I'm Kris. As well as hosting the Aussie/Kiwi group here on Nexus. I'm also the media and communications consultant for the forthcoming "Rise of Atheism" Global Atheist Convention to be held in Melbourne in March 2010. The Convention is being organized jointly by Atheist Alliance International and the Atheist Foundation of Australia.
I wonder if you could let your Alabama atheists know that tickets for the convention are now available online at the Convention website. We are expecting nearly 3,000 delegates, so this convention is going to be huge.
Confirmed speakers include: Richard Dawkins, AC Grayling, PZ Myers, Dan Barker, Peter Singer, Taslima Nasrin and many more.
Anything you can do to help us get the word out would be greatly appreciated.
Heya George, would you mind putting a link (and maybe a the logo for) my local atheist group on the Alabama Atheists profile you have? The site is www.meetup.com/EtowahRationalists. There's a logo uploaded on my profile. Thanks!
To my knowledge I am the only atheist in Hamilton. I would hazard a guess that we're a rare breed in Alabama period. Though, who knows, maybe not as rare as we think. It defiantly would be interesting if more found this site.
