“ Many Christians might think that atheist meetings just discuss their agendas of destroying religion. While that type of atheist group is most likely the exception and not the general rule, the Central Oregon Atheist group is not about that. This is a diverse group of people with different interests and backgrounds who wanted to find others with their own interest of free thinking and free conversation where religious belief is not the core of solving problems or life's mysteries. While conversations often involve contentions with religion, the group also discusses philosophy, science, literature, and other areas of interest. Local & global issues are often talked about as secular ideas are discussed on how humanity can address them. A visitor/member never knows who they will end up talking to or what conversations they will end up engaging in. A conversation attracts a small group of people & then overhearing a different conversation the groups evolve and change. ”

“ It is important for atheists to feel the same sense of community that so many others get with their churches. We are not cast-offs of society, in fact statistically atheists are higher educated, and need to be free to feel strong and open in our knowledge of the truth. ”
