Whether you plan to talk with peers, relatives, or others about atheism, or simply want to learn more about how to discuss the subject, come join us as we learn the 'talking points' of being atheist. Too often we are caught off-guard when someone brings up religion or atheism. In this supportive, friendly atmosphere of like-minded people, we will learn the tools of talking atheism. Feel free to just sit back and listen, or participate if and when you feel ready. It's all good. Every level of experience is welcome.
-- Logical fallacies explained, with examples
-- Problems with the Christian bible in particular
-- Common believer questions and comebacks
-- Whole group discussion at end of every meeting
-- Why it's important to speak up when you're ready
-- How to speak up in different situations
-- Reading your listener - is each discussion worth it?
Every fourth Thursday of the month, hone your skills, share your experience, or just listen in.
The largest part of being well-spoken is being prepared. This is where you prepare.
June's workshop: David Diskin on "How To Respond To Typical Reasons Why Believers Say They Believe", followed by live role playing presented by Walt. Only two presenters plus Toolbox Tips so we have more time for large group discussion.
Homework: 5 min. video called "Nothing More To Say" at http://youtu.be/_J4ZuHEYXkk. (optional)
This is a 5-part series. We only have June, July and August remaining. See you there!
