We're trying to resurrect the Medford meetup idea. Check out your thread my friend! I haven't lived here very long and the other guy has only been here for 7 years and not socialized with other Atheists, poor guy! I think it may do us all some good over this very trying holiday season. Yeah I just found out my in-laws, while having my son for one day a week, are making him pray and teaching him Christians songs. I've been pretty respectful of their religion thus far, maybe it's time for that to come to an end...I dunno.
I digress...we hope to have some input from you soon!
Hi Mathew! I'm Kris - I host 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 members 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.
