Atheists United - San Fernando Valley Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

  • Jul 19, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


What would a world of Atheists be like?

Our normal meeting format is to meet and order something to eat at / around 6:30pm while socializing. At around 7:30pm, the group moderator calls for discussion topics to be discussed at next month's meeting, and the group votes on the top 3 topics from those suggested. Once next month's topic has been decided, the moderator then introduces the discussion topic that was chosen at the last meeting and goes around the room to invite attendees to speak their perspective to the topic.

It's a little structured, but we find it's a great format to get people engaged and included in the conversation and usually leads to subgroups breaking off and chatting in side booths until the meeting is over or the restaurant closes, whichever comes first.

The most challenging part is continually finding good topical questions to discuss. The topics are connected to freethought, religion, or church-state separation. We encourage you to take note of topics throughout your week and suggest them at our meeting!

    Someone in Northridge would like a ride to our meetup. I think they are older and without transportation. If you can help then
    let me know and I will put you in contact with them.

    See the research of
    Phil Zuckerman, Professor of Sociology - Faculty Profiles - Pitzer ...
    who, as a socialist specializes in studying secular and predominately "Godless" societies, such as Denmark.

    It would be like Denmark.

    For the first time, I have had to remove and ban a member. Open and respectful discussion (in this case, on the group's email discussion thread) is encouraged; inflammatory hate-mongering, however, will not be tolerated here. ~ Dave
