I tend to agree. I have never participated in these discussions because most of the time they're not very important to me. I am also not very impressed by these groups. I am a solid atheist and I have no deference reserved for for any religion, but I'm wondering how important atheist groups are. It is nice to talk to people freely about my beliefs, or lack thereof, but I'm not sure what these discussions accomplish. Can I ask....what is everyone's objective in participating in these skeptic groups?
And I am not trying to be aggressive; I am really curious.

I have mixed "feelings" about this group. Very good discussions, but Bruce's public relation skills are crap, & the group is centered around a harmonious adult crowd behavior without the praying & singing. True atheism is about individual lifestyles combined to form a universal consensus. Many "atheists" are saying that eating meat is evil, having sex ONLY for pleasure is disgusting & having your own kids is a must to eliminate perversion. What about the kids? Here in Anaheim (where the police shootings occurred) the YMCA is taking over parenting! This past summer they were going to public parks & inviting the kids to join "Arts & Crafts with Jesus" or something like that.
I really have to finish writing my book.
