Talk at Rational Thought@UCSD, May 11

On May 11 I'll be hosting a discussion at at meeting of Rational Thought@UCSD. The subject is "Atheism as a Social Movement". Come with your thoughts! We'll start at 6pm in the Price Center West Red Shoe Room.

Sub-topics will include (at least):

- What are the inherent strengths and weaknesses of atheism relative to argument-from-authority ideologies?

- Is reason the best way to confront something that is really a social mode of "cognition"?

- What bad things are happening right now in San Diego as a result of religion?

- How can we devert more people faster? Or, is deversion even as important as getting people to understand the importance of church-state separation?

- Inspired by a question from a Mormon friend of mine - What do we do at atheist meetings? What should we do at atheist meetings?

I'll post another reminder closer to the event. Thanks to Rational Thought President Jonathan Whitmore for the opportunity. Hope to see you there!
