Tough on ideas, supportive of people – how atheist and skeptic groups can be robust, inclusive and ethical

by Michael Nugent on March 5, 2015

I gave the Irish Skeptics’ first public lecture of 2015 yesterday on the topic: “Tough on ideas, supportive of people – how atheist and skeptic groups can be robust, inclusive and ethical.”

I covered five areas where we can be tough on ideas and supportive of people.

1. Promoting skeptical inquiry over faith-based conclusions
2. Promoting atheism over faith-based supernaturalism
3. Promoting natural compassion and ethics
4. Promoting inclusive, caring atheist groups
5. Promoting fair and just societies with secular government

The lecture took place in Wynnes Hotel Dublin. Q&A to follow later.

Congratulations and thanks. I am looking very much forward to the time when the disagreements we have in the atheist community are actually about atheism and are resolved without demonization and irrationality.

That was a very refreshing speech, thank you — and I agree with sher mertron’s comment above.
