The Four Horsemen of the Anti-Apocalypse Reunite in 2012

May 14, 2011


The Atheist Foundation of Australia is excited to announce that the next Global Atheist Convention – ‘A Celebration of Reason’ will feature headline speakers Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens (health permitting).

The Global Atheist Convention will be held once again at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 13 - 15 April 2012.

loving how Hitchens has stepped up his workload and is signed up for future events again..

Like having your best player back from injury..

 Hard to imagine four people who have done more damage to the Atheist cause than this bunch.

Hard to imagine one person who has more succinctly displayed their idiocy. Also, your display of ignorance is only compounded by the phrase "atheist cause". There is, and could not be, a cause based on the idea that theism is false. displayed their idiocy. Also, your display of ignorance is only compounded by the phrase "atheist cause".

 This is certainly great news!  Hope Hitch can make it!

 Whilst I agree, Gareth, those who call others for their idiocy are well-advised to ensure their "cut and paste" is up to snuff (thus avoiding repeated half-sentences).

I'm afraid your post makes absolutely no sense at all either logically or grammatically. Do you have learning difficulties?

@coventrian: Hilarious. My son is 8. Even he could see you're a just a troll.

coventrian...you're wrong of course, and completely fail to demonstrate how. The internet has never seen this amount of activity from non-believers before. This is thanks to these four horsemen (and others).

No more free-rides for religious beliefs.

MR said...

Why caveat Hitch's appearance with "(health permitting)" - unnecessary addition... What if Sam Harris gets hit by a bus, do they need to add that caveat too?

:( So sad to see that Hitchens caught cancer from religion. Hope he's well enough in 2012 for the convention so everyone who attends can get a full vaccination!

It is heartening to see Hitchens agree, even tentatively, to such future dates.

As for the comments by Coventrian I'll leave the quips to others and ask him two questions: How exactly have these four men done more to damage your concept of the "atheist cause?" and What is your concept of the "atheist cause?"

The latter might need to be answered first.
