I'm not sure there is anything in this movement worth saving. Hitchens is dead. Dawkins simply doesn't have the energy for this sort of thing anymore. Harris went his own way. And Dennett just kind of blended into the background. So what do you think when the largest gathering of the nonreligious in history pulls in... I don't know. Maybe 2,000 people. Is there anything worth saving?
So is there another sign that the atheist movement in America has imploded?
Yes! Cancelled atheist conferences!
Behold the cancelled atheist conferences:
New Atheist Convention Cancelled
Looks Like Yet Another Atheist Conference is Cancelled
Note to Atheists: Don’t Run a Conference Unless You Know What You’re Doing
