Just a little response for KCFree
Isn't it odd that all the disasters sighted by JT are occurring in the more religiously virulent south and mid-west? That's not to say there aren't a sizable portion of critical thinkers there. Just adding some fodder, if you will.

I will definitely be attending Skepticon 2, it should be a blast. I'd like to try to get together with as many old friends and new friends as I can. :)

Thanks Greg, I will run it by the group.

Hey are you coming to Springfield for Skepticon2? Might be a fun chance for us all to hob nob.

Hi Jonathan,

Group affiliation with American Atheists is free and there are no obligations. It is more of a declaration of friendship then anything.

Some benefits include:

-Affiliate listing on the American Atheists website
-Announcements of local events when possible.
-Assistance in arranging on-going programs.
-The oppurtunity to take part in the affiliate meeting at the American Atheists annual convention.

And more can be found at:
http://alabamaatheist.org/naod/affiliation.html

Affiliation provides Affiliates the chance to work with and help American Atheists and vice versa. Groups are under no obligation to agree with everything American Atheists does.

Are there any benefits/costs for a local group being affiliated with the American Atheists?
Comment by Greg Lammers on September 30, 2009 at 3:40pm
It's important for Atheists to be free, responsible, autonomous. I hope that we are all involved in the movement doing what we can and what we enjoy (with others of course if that's how we choose to be active).

My plan is to encourage others and myself. I want it to be easy and safe for any person of any age and background anywhere to be able to stand up and say "I don't buy this supernatural stuff." I want to see more and more of us become more vocal about our Atheism and about keeping superstition out of our lives. I want to see us communicate with our Atheist neighbors and with Atheists from all over the state, the nation, and the world.

There are a lot of individuals and a lot of groups doing a lot of great things right here in Missouri and in the midwest. I will lend my support however I can to worthy activities by others and carry on the struggle for a better situation for everyone.

I will back Randy up here and say that the Joplin Freethinkers are a great bunch of people.

the Joplin Freethinkers will be meeting Octoboer First at 6:30 with the Christians at the Salvage Yard on Main Street Joplin.

We are affliiated with the American Atheists, and have had two author presentations at our local library.

If you are near Joplin, come get involved in a group that will not back down!

Joplin also has a Recovering Religionist group, started by Darrel Ray, author of the God Virus. This Groups is being run by a member of the Joplin Freethinkers. Andrew.
