Me and my wife are both from a very small dorpie in South africa. We have to admit, it is very lonely out here. We are surrounded by afrikaans christians and we only mentioned our "status" once and that was also the last. Everybody turned red in the face and started screaming.We would love some like minded people to talk to.
Hi Richard! 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.
Hi. I am also from South Africa. You may be interested to see my reply today under the discussion "No! We can't just get along" regarding South Africa - to agree with them or to dispute them. Whichever.
