November Monthly Meeting - a Debate with William Lane Craig

We're making this meeting on a Tuesday so everyone can enjoy the thanksgiving weekend.

I've wanted to do this type of meeting for two years now.  In 2009 I went to see Christopher Hitchens debate William Lane Craig at BIOLA. Craig is one of the most powerful Christian apologetics on the debate circuit.  I have edited Craig's arguments for the existence of God and deleted Hitchen's arguments on a DVD. We will be playing back Craig's arguments, then pausing to 'respond'.  You will hear the atheist's answer to most of the arguments for the existence of a supernatural deity.  This will be a very educational meeting.  Everyone is welcome to chime-in and respond.  Read up on the arguments in the negative to contribute to the lively discussion. 

Social time is at 6:30-7pm, dinner starts at 7pm.  We request a minimum donation of $10 if you will be joining us for dinner and $5 for the meeting.  Dinner is grilled chicken (El Pollo), potato salad, green salad, chicken and veggie lasagna, soft drinks and cookies.

Our home is at 9782 Santiago Blvd. Villa Park. Call if you get lost -[masked] (if you are a first timer you might want to keep this number).  You may also park on an adjacent side street if you see that the parking lot is full.

Please respond with your RSVP if you are coming so we can estimate the dinner numbers.

We will also be collecting our semi-annual membership dues on a volunteer basis.

    Always interesting, always informative. Although some of the arguments were way over my head, I still took away a good sense of what they were on about.

    Enjoyed the meeting. Perhaps next time we can receive a list of the "talking points" and our rebuttals.

    hmm - that's interesting! Maybe he will be lowering his price of $15k per debate!
