American Atheist National Convention

American Atheist National Convention
Anyone going to the convention in Cincinnati next week? I don't live too far away so I figured I might as well. General admission is closed but I'm thinking of going to the God Awful Movies podcast and the charity event on Sunday. Maybe the game night Thursday.

Too far for me. I'm not sure I'd have an interest anyway. I haven't really gone to anything atheism related.

RE: American Atheist National Convention
American Atheists has been a controversial group in the atheist community. One of the biggest sore points was former head Ellen Johnson insistence on capitalizing the word. "atheist," which would imply we are a homogenized group which we are not.

That said, this group has been very action-oriented. They have stood up and taken action when other atheist groups have demurred. They are not afraid of controversy or confrontation.

I have never been a member of this group. I generally favor a less adversarial approach because of our minority status. If it's us against theists in the USA, we lose in a numerical battle. I'd rather make a truce with non-dogmatic, liberal theists. AA is very confrontational which sometimes is necessary, sometimes counter-productive.

I guess me and American Atheists are like the way Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were: Friendemies.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

The convention will be less than an hour drive from the Ark Encounter. I hope Ham has extras security that weekend.

I'd go if it were close enough. I simply hate driving and flying. I did get to go to the 07 convention in DC, got to meet all 4 of the horsemen.
