Where: OAKLAND MASONIC CENTER
3903 BROADWAY 3RD FLOOR BALL ROOM
Oakland, CA 94611

Why: Nobody wants to be left behind!

Q: What’s an atheist to do on Rapture Day?

a. Celebrate with other heathens and skeptics
b. Plan a secular future with like-minded people
c. View the $27,000 billboard at the foot of the Bay Bridge mocking two millennia of false predictions that the world was about to end
d. Be inspired by and meet some of the country’s top atheist speakers, entertainers and thinkers at the most exciting atheist conference ever held in this region
e. All of the above

Don’t get left behind:
Register Now! Details can be found at the American Atheists website: https://atheists.org/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=37

(May 21, 2011, is the date for the latest Rapture, or Judgment Day prophesy by Christian radio broadcaster Harold Camping, who predicts the world will then end on October 21. Camping is the President of an Oakland-based religious broadcasting network with over 150 outlets nationally.)

This is an event for the entire West Coast secular community, especially for those in California. Two days of community building, activism, networking and fun! Our speakers will include Brian Dalton (Mr. Deity) , Matt Dillahunty, Greta Christina, David Eller, Rebecca Watson and Jen McCreight. We’ll be there organized and ready to pick up the clutter left behind when the Christian Rapture begins that Saturday, as promised by “God” Himself at http://www.wecanknow.com. Since “God” has chosen to reveal this vital fact to his prophet in Oakland, we thought Oakland would provide the best venue for an intimate view of the event.

Where: Oakland Masonic Center at 3903 Broadway (wheelchair accessible)
When: Conference starts at 9:00 each day. Party Saturday night. Conference ends at 1:00 Sunday.
Tickets: $49 for the entire weekend, $39 for American Atheists members, and $20 for students (for advance purchases). Register Now!  All tickets $59 at the door.

Food: A catered lunch and dinner are optional, but highly recommended as local restaurants will not be able to accommodate all participants and most are not in close proximity. Details to follow.

Public Transit: BART to MacArthur Station. Get a bus transfer ticket inside BART for the very short bus ride. Take the 57 bus on 40th Street outside the station. Exit the bus at 38th & Broadway, one block from the venue. From downtown Oakland it is a short bus ride on Broadway on the 51A line directly to the Masonic Center. The same line runs from Berkeley to the venue.

Parking: Just down the street is a large public parking garage that charges a maximum of $18 for the day. (Don’t worry, it is not just for Kaiser visitors.) There is limited street parking in nearby residential neighborhoods.

Hotel: We will have a special rate with a hotel for those coming from out of town.
