End of November sounds good, shall I send out some PMs to the Toronto crew?

One request: I'm a kinda boring "early to bed/early to rise" guy, and not much for drinking either, so if it won't cramp everyone else's style, could we consider a meeting during the day?

Nerdy, but cool.

It would be. It'd make it fun and easier to plan out one together as well too.

Has everyone seen this? Blair vs The Hitch upcoming in Toronto

The Munk Debate on Religion: Tony Blair vs. Christopher Hitchens
Fri Nov 26, 2010 7pmAdd to my calendar
Tickets on sale Thurs Oct 14, 11am

A limit of 2 tickets per account applies.

  • ROY THOMSON HALL
  • $25 - $80

The Aurea Foundation Presents

The 6th semi-annual Munk Debate will feature practicing Catholic and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair debating bestselling author and atheist Christopher Hitchens. These two world-class debaters will tackle the resolution: be it resolved, religion is a force for good in the world.

The debate will focus on competing claims regarding religion’s effect on human civilization, today and into the future. For example: In a world of globalization and rapid social change does religion provide the common values and ethical foundations that diverse societies need to thrive in the 21st century? Or, do deeply held religious beliefs promote intolerance, exacerbate ethnic divisions, and impede social progress in developing and developed nations alike?

I'm definitely going, I just set up my account in order to purchase tickets tomorrow, anyone else interested?

I think that passports don't take as long to come as they used to.


Hugh, that thing does look interesting.


Maybe it should be posted in Social as well... just in case, those not from Toronto can see it too? But, are close enough to travel here for it.

Question: Are Canadian "New Atheists"--no offense intended, I only recently learned that that is considered a pejorative term and have yet to find a suitable replacement--are Canadian "New Atheists" as stereotypically uncompromisingly polite as Canadians are wont to be?

:think:

Even if there is a fanaticism, when it comes to Atheism, I don't really see too much of a problem. Fanaticism is going to happen to many who like an idea, or can align their thoughts with an idea..... or movement....

So... since Canadians are polite, they shouldn't be bothered by this term? :ask:

I don't know how many Canadians are Atheists. But, I personally hope, many are. :thumbup:
