San Francisco Atheists November Meeting

David Fitzgerald's "The Complete Heretic's Guide to Christmas"

Have we forgotten the real meaning of Christmas? Or have the Christians…?
This hilarious and informative talk in David Fitzgerald’s The Complete Heretic’s Guide to Western Religion series takes a look at the ancient (and downright spooky) pagan origins and evolution of not just Yuletime, but all our winter season holidays from Halloween to New Year’s Eve.

Saturday November 30
Schroeder's Restaurant, 240 Front St., rear dining room
4:30 pm Meet/greet/drink/eat
5:00 pm Program will begin
Near the Embarcadero Muni & BART station, downtown San Francisco
Free, cash donations welcome

    This will be my first meeting - wish it were in a more veggie-compatible setting, though…….

      Loretta, before you go to Schroeder's, you might want to know that there are stuffed animal heads adorning the walls.

    I would love to turn that image above into a set of Xmas cards to send to my friends and loved ones. Nothing says "Holidays!" like a red-eyed demon, right? Gorgeous stuff. :)

    I'm not certain I'll be able to make it, but going to try!

    Looking forward to it. Hope it doesn't turn into a militant screed on anti-faith.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
