This group is for anyone who has an interest in meeting with other people who are interested in discussing secularism, atheism, humanism, free thinking and so on. I'm starting this group because I feel it is important for people who do not have or believe in religion or god to get together with other like minded individuals. My goal for the group is to get discussions going on current events and issues facing nontheists. I also want to build a resource for people who want to learn more about these subjects. It will also be a place where people can go to get support who are facing difficulties in telling their loved ones about their views and are ostracized by other groups. Lastly I feel that it is our duty to organize and contribute to positive change in the world around us. Positive change could be anything from finding ways to remove stereotypes about atheists to building capital to lobby for positive changes to the american legal system. The only requirement is an open mind.
For our book club meetings please come having read the book and ready to discuss.
Letter to a Christian Nation is a book by Sam Harris, written in response to feedback he received following the publication of his first book The End of Faith. The book is written in the form of an open letter to a Christian in the United States. Harris states that his aim is "to demolish the intellectual and moral pretensions of Christianity in its most committed forms." The book was released in September 2006. In October it entered the New York Times Best Seller list at number seven.
