"Mr. Paul Aints and Regional Atheist Conference" on Atheists Talk #223, June 16, 2013

The first half of this Sunday's program, we will be joined by Scott Bush, Saint Paul Saints (Mr. Paul Aints) Assistant General Manager and talk about A Night of Unbelievable Fun, The Second Coming. This will the second Mr. Paul Aints game sponsored by Minnesota Atheists, on , Friday August 9, 2013. While this is also a baseball game, it is really a means for friends, family and neighbors to get together and enjoy each other's company and forget about the hassles of life for an evening.

The Saints or Aints offer parking-lot tailgating before the game, then perhaps one of the only ballgames one might go to the bathroom during the game so as to watch the between-innings entertainment and after fireworks. Aints custom merchandise is available, including an auction of the players jerseys and family-friendly entertainment for an evening. It will be a memorable and unbelievable event!

Saturday, August 10, will be a one-day Regional Atheist Conference, featuring Susan Jacoby, author of several books, including Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism, The Age of American Unreason and The Great Agnostic: Robert Ingersoll and American Freethought. Other speakers include Greta Christina, Hector Avalos, Amanda Knief and PZ Myers. We will have interactive workshops and breakout sessions highlighted at the end of the day with an all-star panel.

Join Eric Jayne, Steve Petersen and Stephanie Zvan this Sunday morning as we talk about the game and conference.

"August Berkshire's Atheist Pamphlets" August Berkshire on Atheists Talk #222, June 9th, 2013

August Berkshire has been an atheist speaker, debater, and activist since he cofounded the modern atheist movement in Minnesota in 1984. He is a past president and newsletter editor of Minnesota Atheists and a past vice president of Atheist Alliance International. He has served on the board of directors of the Humanists of Minnesota and cofounded Camp Quest of Minnesota in 2003. He is on the speakers bureau for the national Secular Student Alliance.

August has developed a series of pamphlets that are distributed at schools, festivals, and other venues. The pamphlets cover a diversity of topics, including atheism, religion, the problem of evil, abortion, fine-tuned universe, Jesus, Biblical commandments, and humor. Skeptics Society founder Michael Shermer said August's performance in a debate in Fargo was "the best overall defense of atheism that I have ever seen."

August's essay "My Road to Atheism" appears in the anthology "Atheist Voices of Minnesota." He is the owner of the ATHEIST car license plate for Minnesota and is proud to be listed in the reference book "Who's Who in Hell." Contact us for a free set of his pamphlets.

"American Atheists", David Silverman on Atheists Talk #221, June 2, 2013

Love him or hate him, think he's helping movement atheism or harming it, if you're an atheist in America, you probably have an opinion about David Silverman, president of American Atheists. Whether he's inspiring Bill O'Reilly to say incomprehensible things about science (and becoming an internet meme in the process) or putting up billboards that disturb almost as high a percentage of atheists as Christians, Silverman demands our attention.

Listen this Sunday when Silverman joins us to talk about American Atheists' past, present, and future. And to tell us what it really feels like to sit there listening to Bill O'Reilly.
