Oklahoma Freethought Convention Will Take Place in June

The Oklahoma Freethought Convention is taking place on June 23rd at the Tulsa Convention Center Assembly Hall and, after watching The Thinking Atheist‘s promo video, I’m getting excited about it already:

An event like this takes a lot of time, effort, and money to run smoothly, so if you’d like to donate something to help defray the organizers’ costs, you can do that here.

Tickets for the event are $10 and you can see the roster of speakers here.

    “In actual modern Europe a freethinker does not mean a man who thinks for himself. It means a man who, having thought for himself, has come to one particular class of conclusions, the material origin of phenomena, the impossibility of miracles, the improbability of personal immortality and so on.” -G.K. Chesterton

      Did you have a point you wanted make, Kyle, or are you just spitballing?

      Furthermore, if you’re willing to accept for a moment “the material origin of phenomena, the impossibility of miracles, the improbability of personal immortality and so on,” then is there some reason why a group of free thinking individuals wouldn’t come to the same conclusions?

    I grew up in “rapture ready” Tulsa in the 1960′s and 1970′s, and the fact that it now has an atheist convention as an annual event shows me how far along towards enlightenment the state has gotten since then. I wish I could have joined a Tulsa atheist group in my teens just to have some sane people to talk to.

    Sweet. As a open atheists in OKC  ( I have found more like me though) it’s a bit tough. Gonna have to make the drive for this. :)

    Sweet. I’m down in Wichita Falls, about 3 or 4 hours south. I hope I can make it. Though I won’t be surprised if someone burns down the convention center to keep this from happening.

    I have been a lonely godless person here in OKC for a few years, and only heard about this conference last year, after it was over.  I am going to email the organizers to ask them to PLEASE advertise in the Oklahoma City area this year.  And, I will be there!
