David Niose: "Non Believer Nation"

 

David Niose, the President of the American Humanist Association (www.americanhumanist.org) will discuss his just-released book "Nonbeliever Nation: The Rise of Secular Americans" (https://www.facebook.com/NonbelieverNation).  In the book, Mr. Niose argues that America was never in fact a Christian nation and shows how the Religious Right successfully took control of the social and political narrative. He takes us across the country to meet the secular groups now forming in opposition to that force—from humanist gatherings to the rise of the New Atheists to the explosion of secular groups on college and even high school campuses. Niose discusses their political goals, including lobbying efforts, legal strategies, and outreach through advertising and education, and what still needs to be done to make the secular voice a game-changer in American politics.

The talk is at the Student Center is the square building with the peaked roof in the middle of campus by the main quad.

Organized by the Humanist Community in Silicon Valley ( http://www.humanists.org/ )

    It was alright, it was pretty average formulaic humanism

    I can't make it; I'm doing interviews for the Atheist Film Festival (which is coming up fast - got your tix?) But I've heard David Niose speak, and he's terrific - don't miss him!

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.
