Secular Saturday!

As if I didn't get enough from the Reason Rally and the American Atheist Convention, the DFW Coalition of Reason, the Secular Student Alliance, and the rest of the atheist community of North Texas are sponsoring an event that's almost right in my backyard.  This Saturday, from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm (tentative) at the Collin College’s Preston Ridge Campus, the North Texas Secular Student Alliance will be hosting a convention with scheduled appearances by Hemant Mehta of The Friendly Atheist, David Fitzgerald of "Nailed", JT Eberhart of the Freethought Blogs WWJTD, Matt Dillahunty of the Atheist Experience television show, and many more...

And guess who's going???  This guy!  WOO HOOOO!!!  I can't wait!

The only problem is that I'll be attending this convention solo; my wife has graciously volunteered to take care of the family responsibilities (baseball games and whatnot) just so I won't miss a convention so close to home.  I don't say this enough... but I'm a very, very lucky man.

Anyway, if you're interested, you can still buy tickets to the convention here.  The discounted tickets aren't available anymore, but who are we kidding, it's only $35 dollars and it's going toward a really good cause.  Also, the tentative schedule can be found here and a map of the Conference Center is here.

It's a really exciting and fantastic time to be a person living in reason, as there are more and more conventions popping up all the time.  If you're looking for a way to get involved in the movement, or just coming out and looking for like-minded people, give one of these conventions a try.  Believe me, you won't be disappointed.

Oh, one more thing.  If I don't get a chance to meet Hemant Mehta, I think I might sink into a bit of a depression.
