ACA Lecture Series
Free and Open to the Public
The Atheist Community of Austin hosts a monthly lecture series as a
community service and a means of promoting and disseminating ideas of
interest to atheists and the greater Austin community. Lecture topics
usually focus on core areas of atheist interest such as science,
skepticism, the impact of religion, philosophy, church/state separation,
and community activism. While many of our lecturers are PhDs, lectures
are targeted to a lay audience of people who want to enrich their understanding.
We usually hold our lectures at the Austin History Center, located downtown at
9th and Guadalupe (Yahoo map).
Lectures are scheduled usually on the 2nd Sunday of every
month starting at 12:30pm. We meet in the "Reception Room". The
building opens at noon.
Many lectures are available on YouTube via the ACA Lecture Series playlist.
Our next lecture will be presented on
June 12, 2016 at 12:30 p.m..
A Different Approach: Street Epistemology
Bio: Anthony Magnabosco is a skeptic and agnostic atheist who lives in San Antonio, Texas and has conducted hundreds of authentic conversations with theists using Street Epistemology with incredible outcomes. This fascinating technique helps uncover the reliability of the true reasons a person maintains a belief, while simultaneously reducing the likelihood that person will become upset or defensive.This is a crucial approach every atheist who enjoys speaking with believers needs to be familiar with.
