GROUP LEADER: MICHAEL DORIAN



 

 

SUBJECT: According to the 2012 Pew Forum, one in five Americans has no religious affiliation (one in three under 30 years old).  If there are at least 60 million nonbelievers in this country, where are they?  How do we find them?  And how does this affect NYC Atheists and American Atheists?

    The wording of the SUBJECT for this meeting seems to assume that not having any "religious affiliation" means that persons so described are "nonbelievers" and I find that to be a HUGE LEAP ... if by "nonbelievers" they mean people who do not believe in god. There are many people who believe in god but have been increasingly disillusioned with religion ... but they are by no means atheists. Assuming that they are seems magical/wishful thinking.

      Problem with is Bush was a politician and knew how to manipulate the masses into thinking that the war in Iraq was a holy war. When in reality, that was just politics. But politicians are great at creating smokescreens and taking people's minds off the real issue. And the issue is money. Religion and Government was created for power and money.

      Yes Brian I do agree with the fact that religion was created for power and money.

    This is my first ever atheist meetup and I'm looking forward to discussion and meeting everyone!

    Please allow me to clarify the topic for our discussion. I understand that the "Nones" are not all atheists, by any stretch of the imagination. "None"theless, the changing religious landscape in America does present us with some terrific opportunities, and I'd like to explore the possibilities here for atheism to take advantage of the current climate.

    Sorry I won't be able to make this meeting, Michael.
    That evening I'll be hunting down some of those 60 million nonbelievers. I'll let you know where they are and how to find them. I figure that if we can corral enough of them, and train them, we may be able to invade a small religious country. See you next month.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
