Greta Speaking in Berkeley, Sun. Feb. 20: Why Are You Atheists So Angry?

East_Bay_Atheists

If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area — and especially if you’re in the East Bay — come hear me speak! I’ll be speaking to the East Bay Atheists at the Berkeley library on Sunday, Feb. 20, starting at 1:30 pm, on the topic, “Why Are You Atheists So Angry?” Quick summary:

The atheist movement is often accused of being driven by anger. What are so many atheists so angry about? Is this anger legitimate? And can anger be an effective force behind a movement for social change? Greta Christina talks about whether the perception of the atheist movement as an angry one is accurate; whether it’s fair for atheists to be angry at religion in general for harms done by specific religions; whether atheist anger is hurting our movement; and more.

I’ll be speaking for 60 minutes, and will be doing Q&A afterward, so come prepared to grill me. Or just come by to say howdy.

LOCATION: Berkeley Main Library, 3rd Floor Meeting Room, 2090 Kittredge St. (one block from downtown Berkeley BART), Berkeley, CA
TIME: 1:30 – 3:30 PM
SPONSORS: East Bay Atheists
COST: Free

Hope to see you there!

    Ditto on the Washington DC Request.
    I get the “anger” comment all the time. The funny thing is, I’m generally not angry – though I can get pointed on occasion most of it is only pointing out what is obvious and reasonable. The fascinating thing is to see their reaction when I turn it back to them and show the theist what their own anger looks like from the other side. It’s not anger then; it is simply a reaction to being persecuted.
