Atheists Anonymous Monthly • Group discussions / New member welcome

  • This location is shown only to members

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
"Christmas is a time when people of all religions come together to worship Jesus Christ" -Bart Simpson. Happy Holidays? Or are you warring on Christmas like Fox News says you are?

    Thanks David...I got my hoodie back, later that night.

    I wanted to say that I really enjoyed this meeting and came away from it with several new points of view to consider.

    My thanks to everyone who shared their opinions on the various topics.

    I happened to stumble across your organizations of fellow athiests while filling out college applications and I just want to say that I love what you're doing. If possible I'll try and make it to your next meeting.

    Christmas was never about religion when I was little, it was just about family and presents. I still view it that way, and don't care enough about it to dislike it. The whole "war" on a holiday thing is a silly concept imho.

      For me either. Thanksgiving was the same way, just a reason for family to get together.

    Why doesn't Faux News report the war on Kwanzaa?

      Ha, maybe because their viewers would have aneurysms.

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.
