Would afternoon Thursday 12th be suitable for people? I gather there's already quite a bit of stuff on on Friday.

I might be doing a tour for Eugenie on Sunday immediately after the convention finishes - maybe I can squeeze you in.

I left a comment on the front page, but unsurprisingly it never mad it through moderation:

"If all that was going to happen was “mocking” your personal god, I wouldn’t bother going to the convention. That would be boring and unproductive. Remember that atheism is simply a statement of what you don’t believe in; just like you probably don’t believe in Santa, or dragons or the moon made of cheese. But those disbeliefs doesn’t inform you about how the universe works or how to live your life or how to improve the world. Those are the things that the get together is about.

You’ll find all sorts under the umbrella of ‘atheism’: communists and libertarians, scientists and philosophers, anti-theists and religion sympathisers, the best of people and the worst of people – just like any other random group you chose.

It’s worthwhile to understand others before judging them or their actions; yet another thing the convention will hopefully achieve."

Send me the cash, I'll be there in a flash.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

Sorry, but I'm not arriving till Friday morning. Then I'm lunching with long-lost cousins.
