How To Discuss Atheism

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 basic 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 comebacks

--  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.


July workshop: Steve Thoreson on "Pagan Origins of the Christian Myth", Gary Alexander on "Common Questions Atheists Always Get Asked, and How To Answer Them", Tool Box tips, and whole group discussion.

Homework (optional): Visit to browse. Take your time, no need to see pages in order, but if you do you will get a surprise at the end.

    This was a lot of fun, thanks for buying into my false premise of giving a "presentation" which allowed me to ramble infront of a obliged audience. :)
