I'm sending this to the Red River Freethinkers and the Atheist meetup group, so some of you will get this twice.
With the increased attention being given to the May 21, 2011 Second Comming prediction, maybe we should do something on that day. I'm not thinking of anything major, just a gathering of some sort and invite the public (maybe). It's a Saturday, so maybe simple picnic at a park, possibly one of the ones with Frisbee golf and big enough to fly kites. (Some folks in the meetup group have mentioned kites recently.) If there was an idea for something more formal, that would be okay, too. Maybe hire cheap entertainment--an acoustic band or something.
We could send a press release to the media, a playful release--nothing mean, pointing out what was going on. Maybe there would be some press coverage.
Meet local atheists, freethinkers, skeptics and other like-minded people. Gather to discuss issues and make new friends. Check back here for updates on events in the area and how you can get involved. Let your mind be heard!
