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.
