What prompted you to seek us out at this time? Was it an event that we had organized, or something else specific going on in the world or your own life?

Meetup

When did you become an atheist or agnostic?

I always have been. My parenrs were non-believers. I feel fortunate in that I did not have any religion to get over. I would be an agnostic - since the only experience we have is of this reality and cannot reallys any anything either way about what lies outside our experience - but I am an atheist because I find every religion to be incoherent, inconsistent and historically false. Moreover, despite the claims to morality, I find religions to be the source of continual great evil. We don't need supersition based fairy tales to be decent, moral people.

What type of events would you be interested in attending? (We pay attention to this! The more specific, the better.)

Whatever.

Introduction

I have been in local humanist groups and the Atheist Coalition. I have a Ph.D. in Philosophy I have been in real estate and finance for 39 years. I am doing philosophy and i interested in defending atheism against accusations of amoralism.

What Alan M. is saying about this Meetup Group

A very friendly and open group. Other non-believer groups lack the enthusiasm and are filled with mostly older people. I was pleased to be in a distinct minority with grey hair. Seeing so many younger adults encourages me to think that there is hope for the secularization of this culturally backward country.
