Quote from: missedtheboat on June 07, 2011, 03:59:19 AMThanks! I'm going to try to be approachable... I might have to fake some confidence.Umm its called LASH(lynchburg area secular humanists).. we're meeting to watch and discuss "Is the bible relevant today?"Willow, I found out about it through meetup.com just type in your city, and you can find TONS of groups in your area! Hope you find something you like!!

Tennessee still leads the way in court cases and elementary school experiments with either dropping evolution or including intelligent design. They're very backwards their with respect to religious freedom. It's entirely possible this "meetup" could be a trick to get all the non-religious in one place to stone them.
Quote from: Nimzo on June 07, 2011, 12:07:41 PMI have to admit that I chuckled at the idea (or, to be fair, my idea) of an atheist meet up..."I don't believe in God." "Me neither."...I find that good conservations involve people talking about what they do believe in.Or, if in doubt (as you atheists tend to be ), rant about fundies.

Quote from: Velma on June 07, 2011, 06:12:48 PMThere are some of us who live, or have lived, in places where being an atheist can be problematic - like a small town in Mississippi. It is nice to be able to gather face-to-face with like minded people. Yes, there is often talk about atheism, rants about the latest fundie attempt to get their beliefs turned into public policy, and such, but generally (like most human gatherings), we wind up talking about life, the universe, and everything.
