    Sorry I have to miss it tonight. I'll do my best to make the next one.

    I have a friend coming in from out of town this night so I will be cutting my time a little short and leaving around 8pm.

    Well known atheist blogger and author Greta Christina will be speaking at SMU this same night. :-(

      I can't be sure, because I haven't looked at the school websites yet to confirm, but it looks like Greta will be talking at SMU on Wed and at UTA on Thurs. So you could still see her in Arlington on Thurs.

      True. I hope this works for others, but UTA is impractically far for me on a weeknight. And even if it were 20 miles closer, dumping all three of my young kids on my unsuspecting wife two nights in row would be marital suicide.

    I'm planning on attending having read at least:

    Introduction
    Chapters
    1. There Can't Be Just One True Religion
    6. Science Has Disproved Christianity
    7. You Cannot Take the Bible Literally
    9. The Knowledge of God (essentially topical to the title of the book)

    Optional Chapters:
    2. How Could a Good God Allow Suffering?
    4. The Church Is Responsible for So Much Injustice
    5. How Can a Loving God Send People to Hell?

      I'm also going to read the Epilogue: Where Do We Go from Here?

      Note: Chapter Seven has a section called "We Can't Trust the Bible Historically." Currently working on a second edition of a book on the historical accuracy of the Bible, I'm reading what Tim Keller says here with special attention.

    How funny. I just joined this group, and the first meeting I can attend is being held at my alma mater. Skip was one of my science teachers. :)

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.
