What we're about
Welcome to the Eugene Oregon Atheists Pub Social. We are atheists, skeptics, freethinkers, secular humanists, agnostics, critical thinkers, and a variety of other things the non-religious call themselves. The group has been meeting Monday nights for years. The emphasis is on “social”. We don’t always talk about issues related to atheism, although that often comes up. If you want to talk about atheism, just ask, you’ll find plenty of people willing to talk about it. We tend to be an open group who will talk about anything so long as the discussion is based on reason and evidence and not faith and dogma.
It is becoming more and more acceptable to call yourself atheist, but atheists still have to be careful in many environments including at work and among friends and family. This group was started to provide a place where people don’t have to worry about expressing their nonbelief and where they will not be proselytized to.
The main activity is a meetup every Monday night at 6:30 for food, drink, and conversation. There is usually someone their by 6:30, but don’t worry about being there exactly at that time - nobody else does. The first Monday of each month is “Topic Night” (get together at 6:30, discussion starts at 7:30.) A topic is emailed out prior to the meetup and a semi-formal group discussion is held.
For newcomers: RSVPing is not required and most people don’t (although I encourage people to.) As such, there are usually many more people attending than the Meetup site indicates through the RSVP process. As of Aug 2018 we are averaging 8-15 people.
Please bring your questions and join us for some godless discussion.
