'Sinners' gather at atheist meeting.
I didn't go to this meeting, but I think it is important to highlight it here. It's nice to see that the billboard has brought some more atheists to CinCor, but I find it odd that when a group has to define itself by what it is not. That's why these news stories end up sounding like the atheists are fighting believers, and, in turn, why believers think that atheists are mad at god or some other nonsense.
I do need to get out to at least one of these meetings to see what it is like, I really can't be critical of them just from what I've learned from the media's perspective. And I can't be angry at the media for a poor portrayal if that isn't the case.
I know it goes hand-in-hand, but the view of atheists from the outside is probably similar to the public's view of skeptics. How can you meet and talk about what you don't believe? With ART, the answer should be obvious; we meet to discuss a wide variety of subjects not limited to the 'traditional' skeptical subjects of homeopathy, psychic cats, and little green men from across the galaxy. We turn our skeptical eye to topics on the cutting edge of science, art, and public policy. How different are the groups within' CinCor? I will have to find out. Not knowing is my own fault.
