Atheist Social Lounge

On this Thursday evening we will have a short presentation by one of our members - Julian JG Bourke - about his novel; God's Spawn. His discussion will provide an interesting focus for this social gathering. The rest of the time will of course be our normal social event. This is a slight variation on our usual format and we hope that this experiment is well received.

Please note that we will be meeting at our new location -  Strattons Hotel at 249 Castlereagh Street with the nearest intersection being with Liverpool Street- one that has been so popular for our talks. It affords us a better social experience and an area dedicated for our use. We'll meet  from 6pm till no later than 11.00pm. No agenda, no topic, just an opportunity to meet informally for discussion, drinks and food.

You'll find us on level 1.

Strattons is a stone throw away from Museum Station, with Town Hall Station close by.  It is closer to the Sydney CBD than our previous location. There are many bus stops close by. Parking is available at 175 Liverpool Street for $9.00 after 5.00pm.

    Thanks to Steve and Thomas for encouraging me to share my novel, God's Spawn with my fellow atheists. In the presence of many intellectuals that I respect I am nervous to say the least. That being said, I still look forward to reading my work for you all soon. It's my hope that you will find my words entertaining and thought provoking. As always I am open minded to any discussions that may arise. Let's make it a great night and I'll see you all soon. God's Spawn follows the life of an atheist teenager growing up in an Australian high school who discovers to his dismay that he is a demon. This book is a satire on fundamental religions, the Australian education system and the experience of being a supernatural monster. Being a unique blend of many genres it may also contain traces of romance, horror and nuts.
    For anyone interested, you can read half the book for free or purchase a full copy at

    I booked 2 tickets second row to the Secular Conference on 22/2/2014 and just realised it clashes with the weekend I will be attending the Bruce Springsteen concert in the Hunter Valley. Does anybody want to buy discounted tickets to the Secular Conference? They cost $45 each, happy to sell them for $30 each.
