Atheists Anonymous Monthly • Group discussions / New member welcome

At "Atheists Anonymous Monthly", we gather and engage in full group discussion in the comfort of a private room on the second Saturday of each month. Spoofing on "Alcoholics Anonymous", we come together partly in the spirit of a support group, welcoming new members and contemplating life as rationalists in a delusional and superstitious society. But really, we're just getting together to chat as a large group of godless humans.

This is a departure from our other monthly events in that it is a structured meeting with some ground rules for group discussion. The motivation is to connect with more of each other, which is difficult to accomplish if we're fractured into several small conversations. New members: You'll hear a brief overview of the meetup and then have an opportunity to introduce yourself and meet other active members, so please join us and share your thoughts and experiences. Shy members: Just come and spectate. You don't have to speak if you're not comfortable.

Meeting outline:

• BRIEF WELCOME


• INTROS/OPENING RANTS 
Please share with us a little bit about yourself and what brings you to the group. What's life like for you identifying as an atheist? What have your experiences with the meetup group been like thus far? Atheism & religion don't have to dominate-- what are your hobbies and interests? What do you do for a living? How'd you end up in Vegas?


• DISCUSSION TOPIC OF THE MONTH
What do you think about gender inequality in the atheist movement? Should atheist groups be doing more to encourage participation from women and other minority groups? How much does fighting religious oppression/inequality influence secular morality?

 

• CLOSE

At the conclusion of the meeting, attendees are encouraged to migrate to the pub area for continued discussions and drinks.

    Great time! Lori's blinking yellow ball was the X factor. Whatever the differences... all was dealt with diplomatically :)

    It was bound to happen sooner or later -- For the first time, I will not be able to host Atheists Anonymous as my stepdaughter's birthday party will be that afternoon. Fortunately, Lori has agreed to step in and run the event, and I know she'll do a wonderful job! Thanks Lori!! I owe you!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
