Hello,

I'd really like a place for atheists local to Portland to talk and organize. While we may not face the challenges that skeptics in some of the more religious states face, I still think that there are issues pertinent to Portland atheists that need to be addressed.

I would also very much like to have a time and a place to meet and discuss ideas or just to hang out with like-minded folk. A community based on common ideals for a common cause. Like a church, only without all of the baggage that goes along with church. A Skurch?

I have some material I have gathered on some information on some goings on that will interest atheists and skeptics local to Portland, and if there is any new local news I will post it as well.

Aloha!

--Joe

Kick ass. Any chance in hell that it will be in downtown Portland? Beaverton is sort of... out there.

Regardless, I'd be happy to help any way I can.
Downtown Portland would be great. I work there.
Most of our members so far are from Beaverton. If we had enough members from the rest of Portland I think we could make a good argument that it should be close to downtown. I'm personally from Clackamas/Happy Valley, so I'd be thrilled if it was downtown rather than in Beaverton.

I lead a discussion group that meets in a downtown coffee shop (Java Vivace) every other month. We've discussed doing it every month there if we get enough interest.
I will be sure to check you guys out. I have a friend that lives a block from that cafe and I go there every once in a while. I will check "maybe" and do my best to get there. Maybe I can even talk a few people into going with me.
Jay in St. Johns here. Glad to see a few atheist here in Portland. Hello to all. I actually wish Portland was full of godless liberals, it seems to me that most people here replace the godlessness with pseudoscience beliefs. I feel like i cant throw a marshmallow without hitting a acupuncturist or chiropractor or some sort of wellness center in this city. Even at work our break room always has that alternatives magazine there, which is always good for a chuckle.
Thrilled to see local secular humanists.

Jay, I definitely know what you're talking about. Portland does have a bit of a bohemian-hippie atmosphere, but I'd be surprised if there was a city more godless than Portland outside of Massachusetts.
