Looks like we are going to have another regional global atheist convention.Such
Such conventions were held in Melbourne in 20110 and 2012 and were very successful. However, a lot has happened between prominent atheists since then. People have fallen out and personal campaigns have been promoted for and against personalities. I hope these conflicts do not jeopardise this planned convention.
I guess it will depend on the invited speakers. Salman Rushdie and Ayann Hirsi Ali will be interesting and attract lots of people. I look forward to announcements of other speakers in the planned line up.
So, I have my questions at the moment – but will certainly consider attending if the other speakers are as interesting.
Must renew my passport.
Meanwhile – if you are interested here is the message from the organisers:
The Atheist Foundation of Australia is pleased to announce the third Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne in February 2018.
Bringing together like-minded thinkers, and those who want to challenge their current thinking, the three-day exhilarating event will feature world-renowned speakers and entertainers.
Sign up today for speaker and ticketing announcements.
