Do you care if what you believe is true?
Do you think religion or non-belief is harmful?
Are you PASSIONATE about your beliefs or non-beliefs?

You've come to the right place!  Join our group and to discuss why that is!

I'm starting this group for anyone who is interested in friendly atheist vs theist debates (and meaningful conversations) in order to learn from each other and hopefully build a greater tolerance for others.

If you have a passion for these topics please join and spread the word to your friends, family members and churches. The intent is to have open discussions and lively exchanged of ideas in a fair and balanced environment.

PLEASE NOTE: Ad-hominem attacks will not be tolerated so please consider everyone as open-minded and willing to listen just by taking this step in joining this group. Likewise if you are uncomfortable or are not able to tolerate questions in regard to your beliefs or non-beliefs you probably shouldn't join this group.

If you're not really a debater but still want to attend a debate just to listen, that's fine too!
