Considering where you live, you are either very brave or have a serious streak of insanity running through your blood. I worry for your safety.

I think I would run the paper ad as: Freethinkers of Beirut Meetup. Good luck. I would love to come, cannot afford it.

I hope you get to discuss philosophy, particularly Epicurus! :)

Cheers!

Personally, I congratulate you on wanting to get to together with other like minded individuals. It's easy to get a group of freethinkers together in New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles. It's more difficult to do it Salt Lake City, Tupelo, Mississippi, or rural Alabama. And, I strongly suspect it's even more difficult, and dangerous, in Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, or Iran. Which is exactly where such organizations are needed most.

I salute you very much for your courage! I would hope that no vicious religious people try to "crash your party." Maybe you should try to connect with a few Lebanese skeptics online, and only once you trust them arrange a physical meetup just for this select group. Then go from there.

Brigham Young University (a Mormon uni in the USA) has an unofficial skeptics group that is almost a secret society, because if the Uni finds out that you're not really Mormon, it will expel you. Not sure what it's like in Lebanon or how dangerous it is in terms of religious extremism -- but safe is better than sorry. The world can't afford to lose its atheists.

Good luck and keep us posted.
