    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Do Atheists meet like other paths meet together, for study, growth, etc.?

    If so, how often? Is it a study type environment or more socializing? Or Both?

    Do you meet with other Atheists in your area, or are other Black Atheists difficult to find?

    I am thinking of how other paths meet, they have a church, mosque, synagogue, etc.

    Do Atheists have a name for their meeting building, or do you meet anywhere, no name designation?

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    Destee

    Hmm Black Atheist, sound like an oxymoron, given that most so Called Black folks are religious. Then the question becomes why would atheist gather themselves together in religious like settings in the first place? Then wouldn't that make them religious as well, as they would devote themselves to something against something? What would they do? bashing religious people, that would be very ironic.

    Well ... believe it or not ... there are Black People who are Atheist.



    I'd imagine they don't consider it a "religious setting" ... just meeting together ... if they do in fact meet.



    Meeting with others of like mind, does not automatically mean religious or religion.



    I don't know, that's why I asked. I imagine they study other Atheists' work, drink, eat, and maybe socialize.

    Brother Black-king ... you do realize this is the Study Group Forum ... right?

    You're condescending and challenging ... and this isn't the forum for that ... in case you didn't know.

    I'm trying to learn about Atheists ... and you acting like they don't even exist ... is going to hinder the process.

    One who knows the answer, might be an Atheist ... will be reluctant to respond ... because of your disrespect.

    Please don't hinder the process.

    Thanks.

    No ... i'm not an Atheist.

    No ... you didn't answer my questions ... not even one of them.

    You first said a Black Atheist sounds like an oxymoron ... suggesting they do not exist ... right in their face ... in their forum.

    You then asked questions of your own, never providing substantive answers to any posed.

    If you don't think Black Atheists exist ... stay out of their forum ... 'cause this is their forum ... they do exist ... and i want to learn from them and all those who can discuss their existence respectfully.

    I think it's disrespectful to suggest to folk in their face ... in their forum ... you don't exist.

    Any more questions, let me know.

    Love You!

    To be fair I didn't go to their forums, I just reply to a thread on the main page. Now that you mention it, I will keep away from it. Also I didn't say they didn't exist, I said the two didn't mix together. Well I am done here.

    Peace Sista Destee.

    Thanks Brother ... on the home page, the threads titles have the forum they are in, as well.

    It's good to take note of where you are posting to, for the rules are different, depending on the forum.

    For example, you may see a poetry title, that looks like a great discussion title ... but same discussion energy is not allowed in poetry.

    This serves as a like example ... the Study Group Forums have different standards than the Main Spirituality Forum.

    Had I posted this thread in there, your response would have been well within the rules, but because it's here, it's not.

    Sorry for any confusion and i appreciate your cooperation.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
