Atheist Aware: Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion

Wazzup Pilipinas!

This year, Pinoy Atheist and The Agora will launch its new program/activity called Atheist Aware to be held at Ichill Theater Cafe on January 26, Sunday at 2 pm.. This is a once a month activity that will focus more on ideas relevant to the Filipino non-believers.

In 2006, Prof. Richard Dawkins has published a book that made a lot of noise about atheism. The God Delusion is a 2006 best-selling, non-fiction book by the English biologist and professorial fellow of New College, Oxford. Dawkins was also the former holder of the Charles Simonyi Chair for the Public Understanding of Science at the University of Oxford.

In The God Delusion, Dawkins contends that a supernatural creator almost certainly does not exist and that belief in a personal god qualifies as a delusion, which he defines as a persistent false belief held in the face of strong contradictory evidence. He is sympathetic to Robert Pirsig's statement in Lila that "when one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called "religion"

For the first Atheist Aware activity, AA will have a book discussion about the Richard Dawkins' book, The God Delusion. The group will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the book on how effective its message and how will it affect us as Filipino atheists (both individually and as a society).
Theists are also welcome to attend the meetup.
