I have a speaking gig coming up this week in Houston, hosted by the Humanists of Houston. If you’re in the area, or you’re going to be in the area this weekend (maybe for the Secular Social Justice conference), come say Hi and hear me speak! My topic this time: “Resistance Is Not Futile: Why Arguing About Religion Is Not A Waste of Time.”
CITY: Houston, TX
DATE: Thursday, January 28, 2016
TIME: 7:00 to 9:00 pm
TOPIC: Resistance Is Not Futile: Why Arguing About Religion Is Not A Waste of Time
SUMMARY: Many atheists think that trying to persuade people out of religion never works, and simply alienates people. But debating believers about their beliefs can be effective — in changing people’s minds about religion, as well as in achieving other goals of the atheist community. When does it makes sense to debate about religion? How should we go about it? And what should our expectations be for what these debates can accomplish?
LOCATION: Trini Mendenhall Community Center, 1414 Wirt Rd, Houston, TX. We will be in the Auditorium Room. After walking into the community center, look for the room with the HOH sign posted outside the door.
HOST: Humanists of Houston
