Author Lunch with Peter Boghossian: A Manual for Creating Atheists

Peter Boghossian Dinner Event information.

The Humanist Connection invites you to join Dr. Peter Boghossian, author of "A Manual for Creating Atheists," and John Figdor, the Humanist Chaplain who works with the Atheists, Humanists, and Agnostics at Stanford for a dinner conversation about creating a new generation of Atheist activists on June at Pacific Catch Seafood in Mountain View in the San Antonio Shopping Center (ample and accessible parking).

About the book:

For thousands of years, the faithful have honed proselytizing strategies and talked people into believing the truth of one holy book or another. Indeed, the faithful often view converting others as an obligation of their faith--and are trained from an early age to spread their unique brand of religion. The result is a world broken in large part by unquestioned faith. As an urgently needed counter to this tried-and-true tradition of religious evangelism, A Manual for Creating Atheists offers the first-ever guide not for talking people into faith--but for talking them out of it. Peter Boghossian draws on the tools he has developed and used for more than twenty years as a philosopher and educator to teach how to engage the faithful in conversations that will help them value reason and rationality, cast doubt on their religious beliefs, mistrust their faith, abandon superstition and irrationality, and ultimately embrace reason. 


The event costs $45 and includes dinner (drinks can be purchased separately). Additionally, two VIP tickets (includes signed copy of A Manual For Creating Atheists, as well as seats directly next to Dr. Boghossian at the dinner, also comes with comes with free seats to our very small lunch event) are available for $200 each.

    My apologies for not making this. Did not allow time for construction, parking and my absent sense of direction.

    I was able to go last night to the meetup, so I can give up my seat as well. I'd like to come, but need to prioritize work.

    I won't be able to make it after all so I've relinquished my reservation.

    I'm a little surprised Stanford students and staff haven't already reserved all the spots. But since they haven't I'll make the time to break bread with someone I respect. That he lives in my home town is icing on the cake :-)

      If you'd like to make room for another student, might I suggest you consider attending our dinner event instead?

      I didn't realize how quickly this event would book up.

    Change of plan. I plan to attend.

    Where should I park? Till now I've only attended events on campus in the evening when I have had no problem finding a legal parking spot. In the past I've parked on Lomita Dr. near the Rodin Sculpture Garden. It looks like that or the nearby parking structure on Campus Drive West are my best options. If anyone has better advice please speak up.

      I would park at Tressider visitor parking lot. But if you're concerned about parking, consider the dinner event in the evening when parking is more plentiful and free.
