A Global Atheist Conference scheduled for next February in Melbourne, Australia, has been cancelled due to “lack of interest” (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/11/16/global-atheist-convention-cancelled-for-lack-of-interest/).
Ain’t that a shame? And here they went and got two big-name guest speakers for it, too: Salman Rushdie, a former Muslim, and Richard Dawkins, who believes in space aliens.
The problem is, atheism is boring. It only acquires interest when they’re baiting Christians. Among themselves, they don’t have much to talk about. I mean, how many times can you say, “Boy are we smart!”
Did I mention Dawkins believes in space aliens? That’s how life on earth got started. Space aliens started it. How the space aliens’ life got started, he doesn’t say. This sort of thing might have been hard to parley into a whole conference.
