Congrats on the convention!

Post by robindch » Sun Jun 05, 2011 11:53 pm

That was a truly great show folks -- my sincere thanks to everybody who put it together, the speakers, the panels, the folks behind-the-scenes, the hotel, the brewer, bakers, winemakers, the Alive agitcomic, the bowsie at the end, Abie Philbin Bowman, the whole kit and caboodle.

That's going to be one hard act to follow.

I was unable to attend but so proud that it was such a success, looking forward to reviews and seeing the vids. Are there any pics?

Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.

Tremendous. Stupendous. Electric. Eclectic. Exhilarating. Educational. Moving. Empowering. Entertaining. Humourous. Emotional. Stimulating. Encouraging. Great Speakers. Happy people. Wonderful weekend.

Well done, Atheist Ireland organisers!

I heard Rebecca and Richard called some Islamists idiots, or something of that sentiment. Can someone clarify what happened?

Oh - as far as "idiot" goes, my recollection is that Richard said he did not go around calling people idiotic morons, even if their ideas were idiotic. Later on Rebecca mentioned she would love that phrase as a ringtone for her phone, prompting Richard to repeat "idiotic moron" a few times for recording purposes. It was a completely light-hearted moment.
