A.D.E.P.T. = Atheist Debate Effectiveness, Proficiency Training ...

Creating Confident Atheist, Increasing Introspective Skills, and more...

New Persuasion methods aligned with defeating objections or challenges...

A focal Point for Collecting Theist Challenges and Rebuttals, and Atheist Responses.

   This Groups goal, is to create confident and capable Atheist and skeptics, who no longer find themselves feeling reluctant to engage in mature verbal exchanges with theist at any level of intensity. Many Atheist live their lives hiding their perspectives, often due to inadequate confidence in dealing with Theist claims and challenges. This is the group for changing that condition in those who want to live differently. This will be a place to increase knowledge and confidence with respect to, "How to respond to" theist challenges.  But all members are not required or expected to participate in DEBATE, or even want to. Debate is also a source of new ideas for persuasion applicable to sales. New lines of Logical analysis can lead to better self assessment and introspection in dealing with our internal reactions to recently leaving a religion, or in dealing with friends / relatives left behind.


   But, Don't consider this group "only" for Debate Training. Secondarily, this group may also help people decide which side of the fence they are sitting on, to jump off into.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
