Well big news in Melbourne is that the “Global Atheism Convention” has “sold out”. Apparently they have 2500 coming for the March 12-14 event. Let’s see… World Parliament of Religions got 5,500… so does that mean that the Religions are still winning? OR that Atheists are catching up?
In this story by Barney in today’s edition of The Age, convention organiser and Atheist Foundation of Australia president David Nicholls said
”We think this is a turning point for secularism in Australia, and it will be looked at by the rest of the world. We will see it happening more through the free planet, and our aim is to make the whole planet free.”
The “free planet”? “Our aim is to make the whole planet free”? Mr Nicholls doesn’t believe in God, but he seems to believe in extra-terrestial life, and apparently the Earth has been taken prisoner…?
Or does he mean that the Atheist aim is to make the whole planet free FROM something? Let me guess… Religion? OR People who BELIEVE in a Religion? Is that what he means? The “virus” or “plague” of religious believers? If so… (tell me if I am going wrong here, won’t you) …then this convention sounds like the Nuremberg Rally on steriods.
