Decatur Atheists Meetup

Our second monthly meeting is in the Decatur area on the evening of the second Sunday of the month, so we will have another chance to socialize and get to know each other better. The Decatur meeting will take place at the Thinking Man Tavern. It's a homey pub that should be relatively quiet on a Sunday night. Since it's in Decatur, it is a non-smoking location. This meeting will be hosted by Björn. Look for the meetup sign, or just the biggest group of relaxed and happy people. If you're coming on Marta, Thinking Man is about eight blocks from the downtown Decatur train station. Leaving the west entrance of the station, you go left on Commerce and follow it four blocks until it ends, then go right on Howard Ave to Atlanta Ave. There is also a bus stop right in front of the pub.

    Oh, right. History. I was off by 300 years, so post-Constantine. Justinian's historian who wrote a secret history of dirt, rumour, and just plain back stabbing was Procopius.

      Thanks Michael Lavender, I was asking if it was after constantine, because with the conversion of constantine, Christianity got military power, and roots (so christianity didnt fade away like so many other religions).. And with the emperor a christian, I was wondering how a historian might "color" any writings.. But I havent had a chance to even read this topic (I suppose it should be more interesting to christians if jesus existed or not.. But we know they are not interested if facts look bad for their guy)..

    As always, it's so refreshing to talk with people who are unencumbered (Screwed up in the head) by religion. It seems pretty much every important topic, ESP when it comes to politics, has been hijacked by the religious majority. I had the trout, it was fresh, and baked to perfection (not only the best bar food ever, probably the best fish I've had in years).. To the guy i said to grow kale; that was Italian kale.. Looking fwd to the links on history from other discussions.
