Halloween party. Friday, 10/28, 8PM. 345 Logan St SE 2C. Writing was probably originally invented to communicate mundane details such as these, but it still feels vulgar to do so.

Talk Like a Pirate Party is on Saturday 9/24/16 8PM! It will be at Andrew Bazan and Luke Smithems apartment at 345 Logan St SE Apt 2C! Everyone is invited even if you can't see the event because Facebook!

“Nones” on the Rise

Second meeting tomorrow (Thursday 9/15) at 8! It's in the Cook-DeWitt center conference room. Just take the first two rights from the front entrance. It's past the campus' ministers office, which is a reason in and of itself you should come.

This weeks discussion topic:
What affect do you believe the younger generation has/will have on religion?

For reference, here is a four year old article from Pew Research (Also, the source of the image): http://www.pewforum.org/2012/10/09/nones-on-the-rise/

Again, the group is where the events are shared first, but we can't add you to the group unless you have a GVSU email address added to your Facebook account. So do that, and then join the group, and then read a book.

The number of Americans who do not identify with any religion continues to grow at a rapid pace. One-fifth of the U.S. public – and a third of adults under 30 – are religiously unaffiliated today, the highest percentages ever in Pew Research Center polling.

Skepticon Participants!

We need your deposit by next week or we'll have to assume you are not going!

Deposit is $20, and we estimate total costs to be$70 (based off of 8 people going), not including food.

Thank you!

10/28/2014

The $20 deposit for Skepticon is due at the general meeting tonight (MAK 0042 9PM). If you don't have it and you want to go that's okay, in the sense that immediate summary executions are okay.

Going to Skepticon?

On the October 28th meeting (9 P.M Kirkoff 0042) we'll be having a final sign-up with a 20 dollar down-payment for gas. All of the money will be spent on gas, but we're asking for it in advanced to approximate a serious commitment.

"Why I Don't Believe in God" Panel, March 25, 2014, Part 1

Hey, all! Sorry we took so long, but I finally have the video of our panel discussion up on YouTube! It's broken into four parts because of annoying data limits on my memory card and a lack of sophisticated video-editing software. The whole thing is about an hour and a half. Part 4 is the Q&A section which is pretty interesting so if you get bored in the middle you should skip to Part 4 instead of just stopping watching all together. And I apologize it ends rather abruptly because I ran out of memory. Enjoy!

We are holding a panel discussion on atheism on March 25. The panel will include 3 students and an as-yet-undetermined number of professors and will be moderated by Kaleb, and will be observed by the general public.

The board has decided that we would like to retain control over the final selection of panelists. There will be an election by the general membership held at our meeting on Tuesday, February 18. The results of this election will be taken into serious consideration by the board in the final selection process.

If you think you would be a good fit to represent our club on this panel please comment on this post. If you have already nominated yourself you do not need to do so again. Those who apply will be expected to audition before the other club members and/or attend an interview with the board. We are looking for well-spoken individuals who can represent the atheist community in a respectful and professional manner. In the interest of diversity, female members are particularly encouraged to apply!

Bill Nye Debates Ken Ham - HD

For those who didn't get to watch the debate last night, it's no on YouTube. Annoyingly, the video starts 13 minutes before the debate, so you'll want to skip 13 minutes into the vid.
