Tulsa Atheist Rendezvous

Tulsa Atheist Rendezvous grew out of the Atheists Meetup group in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We seek to provide an opportunity for those who self-identify as atheists to meet with one another for fellowship and to discuss matters of mutual interest. --Dan Nerren, moderator

The November Rendezvous

Our November 2005 Tulsa Atheist Rendezvous will be on Nov. 15, starting at 7:00 PM at Zarrow Regional Library, 2224 W. 51st St.

I would like to propose the following structure for the rendezvous and future rendezvous:

First half hour will be a review of current events and their possible impact on civil rights for atheists and the separation of church and state. I would encourage you to bring items from the newspapers or items found at Internet Infidels Newswire. Other possible sources could be Church and State magazine or FFRF's publication Freethought Today. So please begin clipping or marking articles to bring and share with the group for discussion.

For the second half hour I propose that we have two or three people read aloud from some of the classics of freethought. Think of this, if you like, as a way of keeping these writings alive. There are a number of resources we could use for this including, Women Without Superstition by Annie Laurie Gaylor and various writings by Ingersoll, Russell, and Twain.

Nothing is set in stone and I'm always open to suggestions from those who attend.

We should be able to start around 7:00 PM and finish by 8:00 PM.
