If you look at the picture, Richard is looking at me in the Black shirt holding the vid cam. (My 15 seconds of fame sigh).
Anyway, I looked at some comments on the Undeniable facebook page and a couple of guys said they stood next to Richard and Prayed over him, LOL
So some of them knew who he was.
Honestly, when I look at pictures they put up,there seems to be more there than I remember.
So it was my first time talking with believers and I tried to keep respectful, but did get one guy to admit that if he is wrong about miracles and hearing the voice of God etc, then he has wasted his life and he also said he would try to learn more about science....maybe, maybe not, ah well.

It was a fantastic weekend and I met so many nice people to boot.
Always wanted to Kick Ass

Hi, Starbuck.

This is a message sent to all who find their way to these forums.

We like people, and we like facts too!

We're friendly but we're skeptical, and if somebody calls for proof, it's not an accusation. Only the strong ideas thrive here: we try to respect people. (We do not tolerate personal abuse.)

You may already have visited these other handy places:
* New Member Information
* Welcome from AFA president
* For those interested in learning, I recommend the Atheism Resource Thread maintained by Fearless.
* And a quick look at our reserved spot for belief-based discussion, Fantasy Island, includes The Great Big List, a sort-of "things we've seen before" for those of faith, and general rules of argument for the forum.

If you've got questions, please ask. Moderators have red name tags, but many of our friendly people may have the answers you need.

Enjoy the forums. We hope to see plenty from you in discussions.

Have fun.

Maybe the numbers that gathered look so large because half the crowd consisted of GAC attendees, including Richard Dawkins and his followers!

He was there with Fiona Patten, and they stayed for maybe 15-20min. He did a few photos and autographs, and had a listen to what the preacher was saying as well.
Most christians were oblivious to him, though by that time there were about 20-30 atheists milling around the back that recognised him. I saw some christians looking on as he had photos taken, and they seemed to be wondering who this person was.
