Hey joeyess! Would like to talk to my fellow atheist kansans. I will be 56 this aug 3oth. I think to celebrate I am going to be braver, but never preachy, about MY beliefs! I have spent enough of my life smiling and nodding like I agree with what someone is saying when I may not agree at all. I have secondary multiple sclerosis and I tolerate the sheeple saying god will protect me. I have always been an atheist except for the short time I tried to make my grandma happy by going to Sunday school when I was about 6. Although I did like the cookies and games. Then there was the very short time I went to church with a friend in high school. We rode the school bus together and she was determined I would see the light. I don't think she ever realized the more she talked the more comfortable I was staying put. My dad was an atheist, but I don't remember that word ever being used. He always said that was something everyone should figure out for themselves. He died 23 years ago, he would have liked the internet. Later, Dianna
Love to get together sometime, perhaps you could attend one of the local freethought meetings we have at local coffee shops. We go out to drink every so often as well. BTW...the song you have playing on your page is awesome...seriously, not just saying that. Did you write it?
Hi Joey! 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.
