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


East_Bay_Atheists

One last reminder: I’m going to in Berkeley this Sunday afternoon, speaking to the East Bay Atheists, at the Berkeley Public Library, starting at 1:30 pm. If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area — and especially if you’re in the East Bay — come check it out! 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!

    If god were real, then he/she/it could be the source for anger. But since he is not, the claim that we atheists are angry at him is simply a way that religionists use to call us immature and childish and therefore disregard our arguments and logic. This is in keeping with the general lack of genuine ethics in all religious movements.
