The Second Annual Texas Freethought Convention

For the second year in a row, atheists in Texas are organizing a Texas Freethought Convention. This year, it’ll take place on November 14th in San Antonio.

Speakers include Victor Stenger and Dan Barker.

Also noteworthy: the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center will be on hand conducting a blood drive.

Next year, I say they bring a surgeon to the scene to do on-site organ donations. That. Would. Rock.

Ticket information and more details can be found here.

    Oh, man! I would love to attend…but it’s high school football playoffs that weekend! And football reigns supreme in Texas! Maybe after the kids graduate in a couple of years….

    Nice – I was momentarily inspired to jump in the car and finally see San Antonio, but then I remembered that my car’s in the shop with an as-yet-undetermined thing that made it die in the I-80 Hammond toll plaza the other night 🙁 Anyway congrats Texas – give up some blood, then have a cookie and a blast!

    I’m sorry, I’ve been confused somehow. Te… Texas? Freethought? This isn’t making sense somewhere. Does… not… compute…

    Hmm. I’d be interested in this, but going to their web page makes my eyes bleed. Seriously, did I get stuck in a time warp and sent back to the early 90’s or something? Maybe I’ll try again later and see if I can get any useful information out of it…

    I might make it but San Antonio may not work with my schedule. Football is over-rated in Texas. Parade magazine annually puts out the top 55 players and most ain’t from ego exaggerated Texas but CA, OH, PA and FL. I’m a Longhorn fan but FL will win the BCS bowl unless Tebow is injured.

    San Antonio’s a bit far for me; I’m waiting for it to roll around to the DFW Metro area (where I live) or the Houston area (where my parents live)–then I’ll plan to go.
