If you can only go to one of these Ration and Reason type conventions in a lifetime I reckon this has got to be the one.

Still cant get over Geoffrey being there too! I always thought he'd be great for any GAC but he'd be too busy. Fucking awesome.
Oops

But Bruce has a vroom vroom bike race which is apparently far more important and awesome than this could ever be.

No. I don't get it either. Why the fuck would you give up your ticket for that when you could have THIS?

Not a vroom vroom bike race?
Not a vroom vroom bike race that if of any worth worth would happen a few times a year?
Not a vroom vroom bike race that's has guest that would make your hair curl?

No? Okay.


No pressure Bruce. Scrub that. I lied.

Very impressed with the effort to secure this speaker.

No picking and chosing at the GAC. You will see EVERYONE.

This is most excellent! Well done to the organizers.
I think this will be one of those defining life events for me.
The speakers list is bloody awesome, I feel very fortunate to be attending.
This event will wake a lot of people up, at least (or at last), and hopefully condense some atheist ethers into something more solid(or liquid).

As someone who was a huge fan of "Hypotheticals" before I came to the age of reason, I'm really excited about seeing this man speak.
