HUMANICON SW 2004
Scientific Gospel is going to the desert in August. Not a very rational decision to go in the middle of summner, but it's for a great cause. We are going to perform for a group who are the most receptive to our way of thinking. No belief-based, magic for us. Come and join the Opossums of Truth as they entertain and enlighten the conference participants at the Friday the 13th Superstition Cocktail Party and the banquet dinner concert. The lectures and networking with others of our ilk will be rewarding. And you will hear selections from the Opossums' newest CD release, being recorded right now.
Here is the HUMANICON2004 website information from www.HumaniconSW.org
Welcome to a New Age of Reason! To paraphrase the song, this is the Dawning of the Age of Humanism. If ever there was a need for us to embrace the Humanist philosophy and expand the Humanist movement, this is the time -- these early years of the 21st Century! Join us as we spend an exciting weekend in the company of our fellow Humanists, Freethinkers, Atheists, Agnostics, Brights and Skeptics from the Southwest and across the nation. We'll enjoy the beautiful Desert Southwest at our convention hotel, the gorgeous Chaparral Suites Resort, conveniently located in the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona, near shopping, fabulous restaurants, art galleries. All rooms are suites, and the hotel offers free airport transportation, free Happy Hour, and free Breakfast to registered guests.
