“Spiritual But Not Religious” talktorial, Global Atheist Convention and Atheists in the tav
Due to unexpected interest, we’ll be running a talktorial this week, despite it breaking our new fortnightly model.
Remember, we’re running a Facebook poll on the kinds of club events you’d like to see more of: http://www.facebook.com/questions/194315060632862/. Drop by and give us your input!
We’ve published a video of our last talktorial, with all the action captured for your viewing pleasure. You can find it and a copy of the slides used at: http://uass.asn.au/2011/08/atheism-and-education-talktorial/
Tickets are still being sold for 2012′s Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne. If you’re interested in the convention, you can find out more at http://www.atheistconvention.org.au. If you’re thinking of going, there are possibly opportunities for going with Perth Atheists members; contact me for more information.
And now, on with the events!
Thursday, August 25th
Atheists in the tav
1PM – 3PM, UWA Tav
Come join us for a sit down and perhaps a drink (alcoholic this time) as we ponder the indecipherable mysteries of the universe, or not.
This event is unfortunately only open to people over the legal drinking age.

Talktorial: “Spiritual But Not Religious”
2PM – 4PM, Law Lecture Theatre (1.06) – Law Building
(The Law Building is near Oak Lawn, the Guild Village. The Law Lecture Theatre is on the first floor.)
‘Religion’ isn’t a very popular word nowadays. Even some believers are claiming that what they do isn’t particularly ‘religious’.
Has the term ‘religion’ become so toxic that even religious people need to reject it?
Presented by Daniel Midgley.
To make sure as many people as possible can attend future events, drop by http://uass.asn.au/cgi-bin/timetable/ and tick the boxes for times that you CAN’T attend an event.
We’ll use this information to work out the best times for further events this semester.
Stay tuned for more events this semester. If you join our Facebook group (http://www.facebook.com/groups/uwaass/), you can get automatic invites to club events!
See you soon!
