In previous episodes of the podcast we have spoken about the horrors of superstitious beliefs in Africa. Albinos are murdered and harvested for their magical internal organs, children are accused of witchcraft, beaten, tortured, and rejected by their families to live on the streets, women are burned alive for casting spells, and families enjoying the World Soccer are under threat from radical Muslims who view the sport are evil. But fear not, there are rational forces at work combating this insanity.
The Atheist Association of Uganda is an organsation which recognises “there is no scientific evidence for supernatural phenomena, atheists reject belief in `God’, gods and other supernatural beings“. The world desperately needs level headed and logical people like these to teach, inform, and educate. If you want to help, you can.
The Atheist Association of Uganda need your help to raise approximately US$7,500 to cover travel and accommodation expenses the author of “We are all Africans“, Kwadwo Obeng. A free sample of the book can be downloaded from their web site (registration required).
The Atheist Association of Uganda (AAU) wishes to inform you that its organising a speaking tour for Mr Kwadwo Obeng, the author of a book called “We are all Africans”.AAU have talked with him and accepted our invitation to come on a speaking tour in Uganda in November 2010. The theme of discussion is “The dangers of theocracy in African Governments”
Below is the programme we have drafted for him:
Ndejje University on 1st November 2010 Kampala Central region
Kyambogo University 2nd November 2010 Kampala Central Region
Makerere Univeristy 3rd November 2010 Kampala Central Region
Mbarara University 4th November 2010 Mbarara Western Uganda
Gulu University 5th November 2010 Northern Uganda
And he will be finishing with a Public debate on 6th Serena International conference center in Kampala. AAU hopes that its this event that Mr Kwakwo Obeng can speak to Member of Parliament,Political Party leaders and the general public. We also hope that,may be those attending a public debate will pay some attendance fee. It will not be easier making University students pay. Lets start thinking about it. AAU would like to seek financial support but not sure where exactly.
Atheist Alliance International have also promised to contribute the
Airfare to make the even a success.
