For those who went to a previous convention what is it like?  I was thinking about going to the one in 2014 but still on the fence.

Human Rights Activists Defends "Witchcraft" Children: Speaks - July 15th

After almost 4 years of trying, we finally get the chance to host the heroic human rights and child advocate Leo Igwe. Leo will be speaking on July 15th. The program will offer us the chance to hear harrowing challenges and on-going success stories. We'll also have the opportunity to understand our own part in "what's next?". 

 

Who:

Leo Igwe's work covers key areas of interest to us all. He's been doing social justice work for almost 15 years. He'll speak on the link between human rights, civil liberties, health, education and development. The link between skeptical reason, practical activism and social justice is an ongoing project you’re invited to join in. He's in NYC for only one day. Let's turn out to welcome him.

 

Details & RSVP - CFI-NYCFaceBookAtheist Nexus

 

What:

The problems of child abuse, neglect, trafficking and suffering are well known. What is less well known is one of the causes is superstition, irrational tradition and a lack of science-based health care and education. This cripples communities and costs lives.

 

Now there is action that changes lives; rescuing these children from abandonment, stigmatization, mind-numbing abuse, and even murder. They are children (and adults, mostly women, often widows) who’ve been accused of witchcraft and demon possession. They suffer a loss of human rights, human dignity and hope. 

 

Secular Humanist, skeptic and child advocate Leo Igwe is changing things. He has survived slander, harassment by politicians and police, multiple assaults, imprisonment, home invasions and hospitalizing attacks on his family members. His property has been stolen. His father was blinded, losing an eye. He lives under ongoing threats. Yet he continues to risk all and tell the truth for those who's stories would otherwise have no rational witness.

Hello, all.  Been an AA for a while, a life-long atheist, and just found atheistnexus a couple weeks ago, thanks to "Atheism for Dummies" of all books!

I became an AA member about a month ago but haven't received anything in the mail yet. Anyone know how long I should expect it to take to get the first piece of mail with the membership card or something? Thanks.

Searching on google for B.O. (because English is a secondary language for me), I saw the first result was about Bo, Obama's dog. I don't care about his dog but I was curious if there is some tradition with having these "first dogs". There were first cows, horses, lizards, etc BUT I was amused to discover that one of John Adams' dogs was called Satan. Imagine what scandal would be if an American president now would have a dog named Satan. :-)

Hi everyone. Dave Kilby back again with a shameless plug:

I'm currently working on a new series of posts entitled "The Religious Wrong" on my "Grumbles From an Old Grouch" (grumblesfromanoldgrouch.com) blog.

Drop by and take a gander at the work-in-progress and feel free to comment, suggest or tell me to "go to Hell" (even if it doesn't exist).

While you're there, check out my "The Theory of Evil-ution vs the Mythology of Creationism" posts. I think you might enjoy them.

Hi everybody. My Name is Dave Kilby (aka Grouchy).

I do a blog at "Grumbles From an Old Grouch", http://grumblesfromanoldgrouch.com about politics, atheism, culture and life in general. The blog is written as someone who has been there, done that, bought the t-shirt and used it to clean up the mess.  

I'd like to extend an invitation to check it out. I especially recommend the posts: The Theory of Evil-ution vs The Mythology of Creationism (pts 1 & 2). They're a common sense, and rather humorous (I hope) takedown of creationism. It's absolutely free, and if I might add, worth every penny.

Also, GFaOG has a Facebook page: "Grouchy's Grumbles". When you check them out, let me know what you think. Heck, if you like them, tell your friends and "friend" my FB page. I can use all the viewers I can get.
