Las Vegas Atheists Monthly Meetup

  • Dec 16, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is our regular atheist meetup at Jason's Deli. The gathering is mainly social. This event began several years ago with just a handful of us at the Barnes and Noble book store. We outgrew that location years ago and have been at Jason's Deli ever since. For this event, all types of conversation are welcome. There is usually too large of a group to have one conversation. I recommend that you switch seats periodically to meet new people. Think of it as musical chairs without the music. If you hear someone talking about a topic that interests you, jump on in. There are always new people each week so don't feel shy about coming for the first time or meeting someone new. Jason's Deli has always been great to us. They straighten all of the tables after we push them together for our use and they don't even yell when we constantly stay past their closing time. This group is free for you to join, but try to remember to tip at the Deli. If you can afford it, please throw a dollar or so on the table as a tip before you leave. Thanks! I hope to see you there!!!

*This event is more or less self organized. The first members there push some tables together and more tables are added as additional members show up.

    I have a question for my fellow secularists. I must have missed something, because I have never heard anyone say what I am about to point out. According to the religious (esp christians) jesus is/was divine. My understanding of divine is that divine people are immortal, that is, cannot die. So, how could jesus have died for our sins. Either jesus was not divine and could die, or he was divine and could not die. Even if jesus was mortal, don't you think that god would have let jesus in on the con. "It will only hurt for a few days, and then you will be resurrected. That will teach those dirty atheists".

    FYI, I never capitalize god or jesus. That would show a respect for god and jesus that I absolutely do not have. Personal pronouns be damned. Oh, I made a funny!

    I just left the HALV meeting today and have a few comments. Many of the attendees were justly concerned with the theo-fascists efforts to turn the U.S. into a theocracy (with the theo-fascists in charge, of course). Amazingly, despite the vast numbers of adherents and the huge amount of money being spent, we, the sane ones, are winning. For those in doubt, google Pew and Gallop polls on religion in the U.S.
    % of U.S. Population
    Here is a summary (Pew) 2007 2014
    christian 78.4% 70.6%
    unaffiliated 16.1% 22.8%
    Atheists 1.6% 3.0%
    Agnostics 2.4% 4.0%
    Nothing in particular 12.1% 15.8%

    The Gallop poll shows similar results.

    I have a collection of what I call atheist concepts. Here is a sample:
    1. Why does a perfect being (as alleged by the religious), need or want worship?
    Does god suffer from a cosmic inferiority complex?

    2. Religious folks assert that god exists outside of time and space (and therefore is not subject to the usual proofs). I have never heard any religious folks justify this claim. As usual, religious folks equate their assertions (no matter how absurd) with fact.

    3.Religious people insist that their religious views be respected. Yet, I have never heard the religious justify why their religious views should be respected.
    And, why should I say that I respect something (religious dogma) that I have no respect for.

      Mr. Howard, I offer you the following answers, speaking as a religious person: 1.) God does not need or want worship. Our current theology holds that he does not know he's God. He believes himself to be an actor from Vermont, and to our knowledge he rejects any worship. 2.) We believe that God can be expressed through time and space, but that "time" and "space" are merely concepts that our human minds use to organize sensory information into usable models with which to optimize an organisms ability to survive in it's environment. God is simply not limited to these models, because there are ways of rendering system dynamics that do not require temporal or spatial parameters. 3) We do not insist that our views be respected. We are scorned and laughed at by other religions because of the way our religion receives revelation (principally achieved by watching Christopher Walken films while smoking medical marijuana and drinking leftover cooking wine).

    Hi everybody! Im Mike a new member. I have tons of questions I want answers to. Being an atheist has cost me a relationship. I would like to discuss "GOD" with like minded people. Looking forward to meeting you.

    Hello to all,
    I'll be in your area for 3 days and there's no one I would rather hang with than fellow heretic nonbelievers. See you Tuesday!
