PZ Myers and Tom Flynn featured at Anti-Superstition Bash on Friday the 13th!

All Atheist Nexus people are cordially invited to attend:

 The Freethought Society’s (FS) Anti-Superstition Bash will be held on Friday, May 13, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM in the beautiful Corinthian Yacht Club, located at 300 West 2nd Street, Essington, PA 19029, just minutes from the Philadelphia International Airport and I-95. Map.

FS will present the “Friggatriskaidekaphobia Treatment Center,” with anti-superstition "doctors" and "nurses" who will be equipped to assist party attendees in getting over all their superstitions and start the process of ending magical thinking. The nearly unpronounceable Friggatriskaidekaphobia means having an unreasonable fear of Friday the 13th.

In addition to relieving you of your fear of Friday the 13th, the Freethought Society has prepared a number of other features for your enjoyment.

  • DJ Dance Party, featuring Ladder Limbo
  • Open umbrellas fast and slow dancing
  • Mirror breaking ceremony
  • Piñata
  • Fortune teller and psychic
  • Trash your horoscope event
  • Door prizes, and much, much more!

This year's party will have not one, but TWO very special guests:

  1. PZ MYERS - Noted biologist and rationalist blogger of the award winning and very popular Pharyngula,
  2. TOM FLYNN - author, journalist, novelist, entertainer, folklorist, Executive Director of the Council for Secular Humanism, Editor of Free Inquiry magazine, Director of the Robert Green Ingersoll Museum

 But that's not all!

  •  Acclaimed caricature artist EMILY ANTHONY will be on hand to provide on-the-spot portraits, and 
  • author STEPHEN UHL has donated paperback copies of his book "Imagine No Superstition:The Power to Enjoy Life With No Guilt, No Shame, No Blame" to be sold for the very low price of $5, generously giving all proceeds to benefit the Freethought Society.

The general admission (includes light fare) is $10 with $5 discounts available for students and seniors. Cash bar only. No BYOB. There is no charge for children under the age of 13. You may pay at the door, but the FS requests RSVPs with the number of guests so they can be sure to provide sufficient food! You can RSVP via email at tickets@ftsociety.org - just tell us how many guests to expect.

For a wonderful time with some great people, plan to attend the Freethought Society’s (FS) Anti-Superstition Bash on Friday, May 13, 2011 and enjoy the food, dancing, drinking and camaraderie from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM. To encourage people to not drink and drive, FS is providing volunteer designated drivers (available upon request). Please refer to the Internet to locate Essington, Pennsylvania area hotels.
