I just wanted to see how many different kinds of people we got going on this site :D

Just give a holler and let everyone know what area you represent!

 

I'm from Brampton, but for the sake of simplicity I'll say Toronto! WOO!

I live in Broadwater, Nebraska, a village of 128 people in the Panhandle sixty miles from a town over 1,500. My wife Beth Kz and I moved here last year from Oklahoma. I am originally from Michigan.


On November 5, the village government has its monthly meeting. At the September meeting, a board member resigned his post for health reasons, and passed away October 2. At the October meeting, the chairman asked for persons to submit their candidacy for consideration for appointment to fill the seat until the next election, amongst others, I applied.


The chairman has privately told me that of the candidates, I am the least controversial in the village (despite being an out atheist in a decidedly religious area). His presumption is that since Beth and I have made no enemies, work constantly as volunteers in community life, and other things, that the board will accept his nomination of me to the vacant seat.

An open atheist in Nebraska government? Stay tuned. . . .

Hi Carrot Hare. I was raised in Kailua, O'ahu, Hawaii.

Reminder: Though the end of the world is probably not nigh, CFI-Canada's Eschaton2012 Conference is fast approaching. Unlike some of the larger conferences, this small-scale event will provide many opportunities for interactions with guest speakers, who will be attending the social events, and many of the sessions.

For those who don't know where Ottawa is, here are a few examples of driving distances: Toronto-5h; Buffalo-6h; NYC-8h; Boston-7h; Syracuse-4h; Halifax-15h; Detroit 10h

A few discount tickets are still available - see eschaton2012.ca for more information.

DHK,

Can you get to California as so many Okies did during the 1930s. One here in the Napa Valley is mighty glad he's here.

Austin? Because then you could hang out with the crew from The Atheist Experience after the show every week! Boy I would love that.

DHK I'm in Austin and I think you would love to hang out with the atheists here. Yes, Carolyn is right we have the Atheist Experience tv show here!

The Wild West, U.S.A, LOL!  Guess they can send Annie Oakley or Wild Bill Hickock 2 rescue U!

I'm from London Ontario.

Hey Dylan - think you might be able to get to Ottawa for the best gathering of the Nones before the end of the world?

Maybe. Where in Ottawa will it be held?

Eschaton2012 runs from November 30 - December 2 - more information at eschaton2012.ca

There are talks on evolution, science, skepticism, gender issues, theocracy vs secularism, godless ethics, parenting beyond belief. Featured speakers include blogger PZ Myers, author Ophelia Benson, philosopher Chris DiCarlo, science education activist Eugenie Scott, and many others.

Saturday evening there's a gala "Night at the Museum" (held at the Canadian Museum of Nature), which includes a reception, talk by PZ Myers, and late night special events, with exclusive access to the Fossil Gallery and Earth Gallery.

Attendees will have lots of opportunities for contact with the speakers, most of whom are not just guest lecturers, but will be active participants at sessions and socials.

It's good to be anti-Islam

...but not anti-Muslim. Christians burned alive, beheaded, crucified and tortured to death http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/christians-are-being-bur...
