"Night of Unbelievable Fun and the American Atheist Regional Conference", August Berkshire and Eric Jayne on Atheists Talk #178, Sunday July 29th, 2012
Join us on KTNF AM 950 this Sunday July 29th when we interview August Berkshire and Eric Jayne about the upcoming “Night of Unbelievable Fun” – an atheist-themed baseball game played by the St. Paul Saints, and sponsored by Minnesota Atheists and American Atheists. August and Eric will also talk about the American Atheist Regional Conference which is taking place in Saint Paul on the same weekend.
On Friday August 10th Minnesota Atheists and American Atheists will sponsor a St. Paul Saints baseball game at Midway Stadium. For this one evening the St. Paul Saints will be renamed the “Mr. Paul Aints”, the team will wear Mr. Paul Aints jerseys during the game, and the letter “S” will be covered up on the word “Saints” throughout the ballpark. Dave Silverman, the current president of American Atheists, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game! Minnesota Atheists banners will hang in the stadium, and baseballs fans will be greeted at the main entrance of the park with a Minnesota Atheists information table.
The 2012 Regional Atheist Conference will take place the day after on Saturday August 11th in St. Paul. Confirmed speakers include Dave Silverman, PZ Myers, Teresa MacBain, Ayanna Watson, Hector Avalos, Jessica Ahlquist, Robert Price and J. Anderson Thompson. Tickets are available for the conference, and lunch and dinner tickets can also be purchased. After the conference, there will be a pub crawl through downtown St. Paul.
So join us this Sunday on AM950 KTNF to get all of the latest information about the Mr. Paul Aints and the American Atheist Regional Conference. As always, we welcome your questions or comments by phone and email.
