The Detroit Atheists Meetup Group (aka DAM)
A secular community of atheists and atheist friendly people in the Detroit Area, including, but not limited to, agnostics, skeptics, freethinkers, humanists, non-theists, anti-theists, untheists, brights, rationalists, doubters, heathens, heretics, the curious, and their friends.
We have a general meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. Currently we meet at Logan's Roadhouse at John R & 14 Miles Roads in Troy. We have other events that are less regularly scheduled including DVD parties, Movie Screenings, book clubs, and other parties (you should have been to our Halloween party!). We also join the Michigan Atheists for many of their events like their Convention, Summer Picnic, and movie screenings. Also, we have recently become more involved in charity work.
Our members have a variety of backgrounds. Many are former Christians, but we also have life-time atheists, secular Jews, former-Jews, former Hindus, former Muslims, a pagan or two, and have even had Christians who are just curious or looking for interesting conversation. Many of our members are liberals, but we do have conservative and libertarian members, too. The common thread among us is that we are willing to listen and consider what everyone else has to say. Everyone gets a chance to speak what is on their mind.
Our meetings always have friendly lively conversation. Discussions include, but are not limited to, atheism, science, politics, state-church issues, personal experiences, books, movies, current events, what's happening around Detroit, and philosophy. We have a variety of personalities. Some, don't care for an argument and just want to be around like minded people. Others, are looking to actively debate issues. Some just like to sit back and take in the show. You're likely to find like minded people.
We strongly encourage tolerance and support the separation of church and state. We believe everyone has the right to believe how they choose, but nobody has the right to force their beliefs upon other people
We may not be the most focussed group, but we hope to provide a place where you can be a part of community of like minded people, meet friends, talk about interesting and exciting topics, take part in stimulating events, learn about atheists issues, and about other atheists groups and events in our area.
So, checkout our website, calendar, message board, and e-mail list. Better yet, drop by and say hello.
