On the second Saturday of each month, we gather and engage in full group discussion in the comfort of a private room. This 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 get to know other active members, so please join us and share your thoughts and experiences.

• WELCOME BRIEFING
Meeting purpose, agenda and ground rules. LV Atheists Meetup overview for newcomers.
• INTROS/OPENING RANTS
Share with us a little bit about yourself and what brings you to the group. Or sound off-- what do you have to say to an audience of atheists?
• DISCUSSION TOPIC OF THE MONTH
"Most atheists I have encountered are gloomy blighters with a depressing and nihilistic message that there is no purpose to life so where's the point of anything?" - Mary Kenny, theguardian.com, 10/2008. Is she right? Is there a point to anything? Are you a gloomy blighter?
Final thoughts, meetup announcements/reminders, send-off.
