Harvard Event This Weekend

I’m going to Harvard University this weekend for a very different kind of talk than the ones I usually give.

Actually, I’m not talking very much at all. I’ll give an introduction of sorts, but really, this is a group discussion.

It’ll be a chance to look at a number of different scenarios that atheists have had to deal with in recent years (like whether or not to chalk your campus with smiling faces on Draw Muhammad Day) and discuss with other non-religious people the best ways to handle them.

We’re hoping to start a conversation instead of it being a one-way exchange of information.

The event will take place at the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard (19 Arrow St.) on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. All the details can be found here and here.

Also, Saturday night, I’ll be attending a Boston Atheists Meetup at the Asgard resturant. If you can’t come to the talk, or even if you can, come join us there! My flight gets in around 7:30 p.m., so I’ll be there shortly thereafter.

    Yeah, Boston’s nice… but it’s sure no Mobile.

    This sounds really interesting. Can anyone just show up? I live only 2 hours north and have Sundays off. I could round up some atheists from Maine,I’m sure I could find some people who are interested.

    I might have to venture down to Mass. for this. :D I love the Asgard but it’s a good hour and a half drive for me.

    @Lauren — Yes, you can just show up! It’d be nice to RSVP just so we can see the headcount, but unless something crazy happens, you’re welcome to come join us.

    I think a few members from the RI Atheist Society will be stopping by as well. I know I will… Harvard is an hour’s drive and quite frankly I can’t think of anything better to do on a Sunday afternoon. I think we’re going to have lunch in Harvard Square before the talk, so you’re welcome to join us if you have time. I hope we get a chance to meet.

    Does anyone besides me find it ironic that atheists will meet at a place named after the home of the Norse Gods?

    Well this would be my change to meet Hemant as that is in my stomping grounds. But being married with children means not going out on Saturday night.
