Back home from the first session of the Atheist Convention that's going on in Melbourne this weekend.

On the bill tonight was Sue-Ann Post, Mark Tier, and Catherine Deveny.

Sue-Anne presented some comedic commentary on Mormonism (there are three levels to Mormon heaven, and the top level gets one the opportunity to become a god and create one's own planet of worshipful followers), Mark related some tales from his home in The Philippines (where one's only choice for educating one's children is to send them to a Catholic school, or a school run by Catholics), and Catherine Deveny (to a persistent heckler, "Do you understand the words 'Shut the fuck up'?" Much audience applause followed).

A fine evening, and generally light-hearted introduction to the weekend.

A short post, without much revelation, I'm afraid. Must get to bed if I'm to be back in Town for the 8:30 beginning of the Saturday Session.
