    Thank all of you for your warm welcome to my first meetup with this group. Even though I was a little behind the curve since I hadn't read the book, I got a lot out of this meetup and enjoyed it thoroughly. I look forward to future meetups with this group and will hopefully see everyone at Starbucks soon. I also have 3 extra tickets to the Scopes trial plays on Saturday, 20th of July in Dayton TN during the Scopes Festival if anyone is interested. Thanks to Gayle and everyone else for doing this meetup and providing a local group where skeptics, atheists, and freethinkers can find like-minded individuals :-)

    In light of discussion of Catholic child abuse, this is hard to believe:

    I was really looking forward to this, but unfortunately something has come up. I'll try my best to make it to Starbucks next Sunday. Have a great time with Dr. Ray.

    Here is a link to the Campus Map, and I edited it putting a red circle around what the map legend says is the Mass Comm Building. https://www.dropbox.com/s/rj300ccxdeeqdsq/MTSUCampusMap.pdf

    I've never been there though, so I'll leave it up to others to correct me if I'm in error.

    I looked at a map of the campus. Isn't the mass comm building on Blue Raider Drive?

    OK, gang - here's the deal: the author of our book, Sex and God, is a personal friend of Eliott and mine. He lives in Kansas, but he has agreed to be available to skype at our book club meeting!

    We've set our meeting again at MTSU, in the location where we normally meet.

    Make sure you get a copy of the book - it's fabulous - and join us for conversation and companionship!

    I read "Sex and God" and was again so grateful I extracted myself from the oppressive influence of religion of any kind. Had already come to the conclusion myself that every religion on earth is founded on an afterlife and terror of death. Am really looking forward to the upcoming discussion. Any ideas of a location yet?

    I was born in Nashville,TN on 7/7/1948. I found a ~“77”~ ~“alignment”~ of ~“seven...”~'s ~“hidden”~ in the book of ~“Revelation”~! WHY? NOW!(1948 ~“Israel”~ READ Ezekiel 33!) (Google “The Georgia Guidestones” Hwy.~“77”~!)

    Here's our July book:

    Sex & God, by Dr. Darryl Ray. It's a relatively new book; Dr. Ray's previous book was called The God Virus. Both are fabulous, but I think you'll really enjoy this one. It's about so much more than the title implies - it sheds light on every relationship we have. I met Darryl a couple of years ago at an atheist conference. He's as warm and open as he is smart and articulate. He is former clergy, and his background is in psychology and counseling. He founded Recovering from Religion, which has grown at an astonishing rate since he began it. (http://recoveringfromreligion.org/).

    I'm going to do a little research before posting our discussion questions, but I'll post them right here as soon as I've prepared them. Let me know if you have any questions or comments. I'm looking forward to this discussion!

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.
