Obama will be in Austin, TX later this afternoon.
I just booked my hotel and flight the Labor Day weekend in Colorado. That looks like a really great one, there are TONS of speakers coming in for that.
I may go to Austin as well. I did ask Paul to see if he needed help organizing TFC in Austin but it's so late now I don't know if it's going to be able to happen either if something isn't put out there right now. Perhaps it will get back in gear for next year.
Are you planning on heading to Denver?
That said, I did reserve hotel for American Atheists' Convention, 2013; March 28-31, Austin, TX.
Anyone planning to go to Colorado for Labor Day weekend?
Hi Steph; the problem with the FT convention is that it is only a few months away without a date or a line up - makes it very difficult for folks to plan for it.
Hello all... Anyone in the North of Austin area want to get together for lunch or happy hour? Getting together somewhere centrally located to Leander, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Georgetown, Pflugerville or NE/NW Austin. Most folks I know live in South or Central Austin and that's where most gatherings are held. I don't know about you but I'd like to drive less than 25+ miles to hang out with cool folks... I know you are out there, so let's do this! Message me or post on my wall. Also post on my FB page www.facebook.com/citizenroe. Thanks!
Hi Sam! Glad you recognized me in all my tyrannosaurus-like glory! I'll be at the SA Atheists' bookclub 1 July.
Hi Robin, I agree with Sam - C/S separation a great topic for a paper. You can check out http://www.au.org/issues/foundations-church-state-separation. Another topic may be religion in public schools.
I'm sure you can find many articles on both topics.
How about Separation of Church and State and why that is important even though most religions believe it will lead to a better society what are the pitfalls? A good example might be area that have Theocracies and how that turned out, but also focusing on what the founding fathers actually said and did for the country. I heard a great podcast from Reasonable Doubts "RD Extra: Debunking D'Souza". They had more references and quotes to the founding fathers and could provide some great material or information that you can then use to lookup for references. Personally, I try not to shut about the subject ever. You don't have to mention any religion or lack thereof you simply need to highlight the problems caused by allowing it's infusion into government.
