"Exposing and responding to moral arguments"

Atheist activist Eric Ozols walks through common moral arguments made by religious apologists, offers his suggested ways of responding in simple and easy to recall replies. The focus is on understanding the topic on a general level and learning effective methods of conversing with people in a polite and dignified tone.

The moral argument is a powerful conceptual tool used by apologists to insulate their congregations from objectively scrutinizing their ideas. Eric methodically works through the key elements which most often lead people to get confused when thinking about this line of argumentation. The intent is learning common pratfalls and how to avoid them while providing successful responses to help people see the errors they’ve made

On the second Sundays of the month and for our main, monthly meeting, we hold our speakers’ series program, “Skipping Church – Members Speak”. Come at 1:30 PM and help set-up and make new friends. There will be a social time beginning at 1:30 PM, and then a short program that presents our values, our events as well as a five-minute video of general interest/education often pertaining to the separation of church and state. Next, one of our own members speaks for about 40-45 minutes on their choice of a subject then followed up by 15 minutes or more of Q&A. Mingling with your community has been proven to enhance your sense of well-being so please come and join us.

Our group will provide an accepting community where you can feel comfortable no matter your race, creed and sexual orientation as well as you being an important and appreciated part. Find a place and purpose to volunteer. Join in with your friends and community as we become more engaged in spreading our values throughout our larger community. Keep your heart happy and full.

Kids may stay in the adjoining room right next to us and entertain themselves or sit with you and you can still hear and participate in the lecture and discussion. Come early at 1 PM when the library opens and check them out some books. Tell your friends with kids they are more than welcome to come. We love to see your kids! Contact me for more information.
