Religion and the Atlanta Science Tavern - a Discussion
This meetup will be an opportunity for me to present my thinking on what will become our official position on the relationship between the Atlanta Science Tavern and people of faith. It will also allow me to address recent criticism of my program choices in that regard. Don’t be confused, this is not going to be a religion versus science debate.
