A Gathering of Infidels...

Getting ready to take off for Atlanta and the American Atheist Convention. (And no, American and Atheist are NOT mutually exclusive terms.)

John Michael is going with me, most excited by the opportunity to hear and meet Richard Dawkins, who will speak on Saturday and do a book-signing. I'm getting my copy of "The Ancestor's Tale" signed - a marvelous journey back through time and evolution - and John has opted to get Dawkin's signature on a copy of "The God Delusion".

Also appearing, among others, will be Nate Phelps - estranged son of uber-crazy anti-gay wingnut Fred Phelps, and Brother Harry Hardwick of the infamous Landover Baptist Church. (www.landoverbaptist.com

Lest you fear our entire weekend will be spent wallowing in heathenism, you can relax. On Saturday we will be having dinner with daughter Kate and her betrothed, who are driving over from Birmingham, and on Sunday we will visit Emory University, one of the schools John is considering attending.

I will try to keep y'all posted on how it goes.
