Caffeinated Godlessness

Every other Thursday, we get together for a group discussion on a topic in atheism, the impact of religion on individuals and society, and how that affects us as free thinkers. We always start with a central topic, and then let the discussion go where it will, with reference to the central theme.

This discussion group often reaches into history and theoretical concepts, which means that we discuss not just current topics, but how the past and the possibilities of the future may affect it.  It is not necessarily a goal-oriented discussion or a planning session, as much as it is a chance to play in the mental field of these ideas, from as many angles as possible.  You will never have to prepare for the discussion because the topic will be accessible without research, and you are as welcome to come just to listen, as you are to share your thoughts!  If you like to discuss in this way, this group is for you.

If you have a topic you'd like to discuss, please email me. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Hope to see you there!

Nancy

    So on the way home we continued the topic from tonight and thought of something: What if the thought processes we all had to help us break from religion contributes to the lack of inhibition that the survey results observed? If we have already pushed our boundaries by breaking from one of the largest social norms in America, what is something as trivial as a little "rough & tumble" or other less mentionable things?

    Just moved here from Charlotte, nc. Not a lot of like minded folks in that part of the country, looking forward to meeting "y'all "

      I found the deep south had a strong atheist "underworld". But the public surface demeanor was all southern belles who greet you with the question of "what church do you go to?" Southern hospitality - an offer only extended to others in your parish.

    Welcome to Tucson, jolt weather and a group of great minds discussing their approaches to life and evidence based reality.

    We come from all walks of life and experience with two conclusions -- we see no evidence for a god or gods -- and a separation of church and state is paramount to freedom.

    I have liberally quoted Don Lacey, our state organizer in the above message -- who is a dynamo of positive every in bringing this disparate set of atheist groups together.
