How to talk with the religious. This will be fun. Sorta like a workshop.

There will be a few of us that will lead this exercise.

We'll go to the Blue Moose afterward for drinks, food and talk.

    Some of you came to the presentation on this subject in September. Today I listened to an excellent talk on The Thinking Atheist podcast and thought some of you might be interested in listening too. There are also links to his book on Amazon, his talk at TAM, and a conversation with Richard Dawkins. Have fun learning. A Manual For Creating Atheists (with Dr. Peter Boghossian)

    One way to improve your ability to speak about your beliefs, is to practice. You will get an opportunity to do this at this workshop. It is also a good idea to listen to others talk to believers and also ask for their advice. Here is a short video from the call in show Atheist Experience, where a caller asks the hosts, Don and Jeff, for some advice on how to talk to the Jehovah Witnesses who come by and talk to him.

      I especially liked Jeff's remarks in the last 30 seconds about how providing misinformation could reinforce the ideas of the other person
