What's the stupidest religious idea you've ever heard?

So much stupidity & insanity, so little space. For now, anything to do with the "Rapture" is high on the list. The Islamic "There is no God but God" is a great example of the fallacy of "begging the question."

Who's your favorite freethought 'hero'?

Thomas Paine (albeit he was a Deist). I loved his "The Age of Reason", which was one of the first books I read in the process of my "deconversion."

When did you admit to being an atheist?

Self-described agnostic until late teens, then a theist until about 2004, then agnostic until about 2006, now atheist on inductive logical grounds (i.e. evidence does not support existence of any sort of deity).


I started to "deconvert" from theism (esp. Christianity) about 4 years ago. I want to meet and share thoughts with other non-theists.

What Chuck A is saying about this Meetup Group

Interesting discussion topics, nicely organized and moderated, congenial people, relaxed atmosphere, decent food, ample parking. What's not to like? I expect to learn something new every meeting.
