I started this group because I want to meet other atheists in the far NW burbs area. For this reason, I've decided to keep all meetups in McHenry County or W. Lake County. Let's get together at one of McHenry County's best burger joints (there is vegetarian food on the menu also). I'm looking forward to meeting you all! Please spread the word to any of your atheist friends and/or colleagues in the area. Here is the website for the bar/restaurant: http://www.tracksbarandgrill.com/index.html

    I'm an agnostic, but I have done a lot of reading about the critical interpretation of the Bible and the historical Jesus. I am NOT a believer. I read Reza Aslans " Zealot". I recommend it for anyone with an intellectual curiosity about the actual Jesus. (not the Jesus of the Christian religion)

      Yeah! it's really a masterpiece. The Holy Drinker is epic. Check this out this video of Luminol, Listen for direct influences from King Crimson, Yes & Genesis. http://youtu.be/E3MpG...­
      It's HD too, so crank it @ 1080p.
      Also notice what the back of his shirt reads.
      Be Well!

    I had a great time. It was wonderful to meet smart, interesting, local non-believers! Thank you so much for organizing Katie! Bob, could you post the info about where you get your green coffee? I'm really interested in roasting my own, but it was so loud I didn't quite catch the name of where you purchase it from. Thanks!

    It was awesome to meet you all. And special thanks to Katie for organizing!!

    If you guys are interested, the book I was so excited about is A Manual for Creating Atheists (Peter Boghossian). Also, the guy in Texas who is actively putting the book to work as a Street Epistomologist is Anthony Magnabosco. He actively walks up to street preachers near the Alamo and challenges them, in a very polite way. You can check out his YouTube videos here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8t0-GC4cHY&feature=youtu.be Links to more of his videos are in the description field ("About" - you may have to expand it). They are marked as private, but he sent me the link and I confirmed with him that I could share…just please to post on a public site (like your FB page). I look forward to seeing you all again!

    Love the photo Bob. The double images makes it look Picassoesque. Reminds me of Guernica.
