MARKET NIGHT ASK AN ATHEIST BOOTH

Our Booth space is BB on the same side of the street as Caprice Cafe between 5th and 6th, closest to 6th. We are next to “Soaring Swine Acres”. No kidding.

There are MANY ways you can help with this event!
1) the cost of the booth is $50.00, so please consider donating a $ or 2 by clicking the “chip-in” button on this site. It is easy to use!
2) Help set up the booth: if all you have time for is to help set it up, that’d be totally okay! You can help mount it, and then go if you need to.
3) Help tear it down: If all you have time for is to help tear down the booth, that’d be just fine!
4)Support: If you are shy about working the booth, come show up anyway and just hang out (on the other side!) It looks great to have a large gathering of people outside the booth.
5) If you can work it, but can’t stay the entire time, no problem. Just let us know what you’re able to work. For those of you who’ve never been, this is a very positive, energizing event! Almost everyone who stops by is genuinely curious about what we’re about. Often those who come over to talk are excited and relieved to know there are Atheists in this town and to find out about FAR and the IEAA.

Sunday Morning Breakfast Meetup

If you like to sleep in on Sunday and do not want to get up for our weekly hike but would like some lively conversation later in the morning, come join us for breakfast. Our hiking group always meets for a meal and a pleasant chat after our hike. Farmer Boy’s Restaurant is located on the corner of University Ave. and the 91 Freeway in downtown Riverside. Their prices are reasonable and there is a patio outside where we sit, making for a nice non-noisy location. If it is nice and we are able to sit outside, friendly dogs on leashes are welcome. This meetup time is 9:15 am, which is a close approximation. We might be a early or a few minutes late getting down the mountain, so wait for us if you do not find us there! Look for the IEAA tee shirts if it is your first time to attend.

Girls’ Night Out at Punjab Palace

***As always this event is open to women only!***

BNB8: LGBTQ Discrimination and Acceptance

Believers & Nonbelievers in Discussion

“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 18:22

The effects of these 3,000 year old words persist to this day, a “should” of behavior that conflicts with the modern knowledge of sexual biology and identity.

We will explore the status of this conflict–the discrimination that arises from deity-sourced belief, the acceptance that arises from the moderating of historically conservative stances, and the issues of inherency, choice and sexual experimentation.

On this National Equality March day, let’s face the issues and learn from each other.

Panelists:
Angie Hendrix, Director of the Orange County/Long Beach PFLAG Speakers Bureau
River Gibbs, YouTube activist, host “Logically Speaking” podcast
Kelly Clemenson, areopagusproject.com
(4th seat tbd. Please contact me if interested).

Hosted by Don Fuller.

Audience Q&A will follow. This event is free. Please RSVP either on MeetUp or at the Facebook Group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BandNBtalk/ (click on Events). Also join the Facebook page for notices of future events. Invite interested friends too!

The conference room is behind the library. Setup volunteers, please arrive promptly at 1PM.

Join us too for dinner afterward at a nearby restaurant, 5-7PM. Location announced at the event.

Future topics:
Historicity of the Bible
Is Belief a Choice?
The Conflict Issues

Weekly Mount Rubidoux Fun Hike!

Join us for a FUN event EVERY Sunday morning! The regular hikers in this event rarely sign up even though they hike every Sunday. There are always more people than the two hosts so don’t be shy in joining us!

Want to have fun and stay healthy too? Join us for some exercise AND enjoy the wonders of nature at the same time! This exercise is fun and the views from the top are absolutely awesome! It takes about a half hour to hike up and a half hour down, maybe 45 minute each way at a slower pace. This is an easy hike, but may be strenuous for anyone who is not in good physical condition. Bring a bottle of water and wear comfortable shoes. If you are a jogger this will be a VERY easy hike, but if you never get any exercise you may want to try walking in your neighborhood for a few weeks before you do this hike.

FOOD: Each week we meet at the base of the mountain, hike up, enjoy the amazing view, talk for a while, solve all the world’s problems, hike back down, and have a light breakfast or early lunch at one of the local restaurants nearby. If you prefer to hike and skip the food that’s fine too.

DIRECTIONS: Mount Rubidoux Memorial Park is located on the western edge of downtown Riverside, just a few minutes off the 91 Freeway. From the 91 Freeway exit at the Mission Inn / University Off Ramp Proceed west on either Mission Inn Boulevard or University to Redwood Drive. Turn left on Redwood to 9th Street Turn right on 9th and go one block to the Park entrance (where 9th street ends)

BRIEF DIRECTIONS: Get on 9th street and go north until it ends!

PLEASE try to arrive a few minutes early because we like to start the hike on time. We meet in front of the 9th street entrance gate. Also, PLEASE RSVP since we will wait a while at the start point IF we know you are coming and you are a little late. Friendly dogs are welcome but remember that dogs must be on a short leash. No toilets in the park.

FREE parking on parts of 9th street and some others, but be careful since some of the streets are residents only parking. PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE PARKING SIGNS SINCE THERE ARE LOTS OF RESTRICTIONS ON PARKING IN THE AREA. MUCH OF THE PARKING IS RESERVED FOR RESIDENTS WITH PERMITS!

Cinema With the Secular and Discussion Lunch – Redlands

Please reserve your ticket a day or so before the movie. See details about Harkins Mountain Grove 16 below. Google Maps says it takes 20 minutes from Central and Magnolia. 

Reserve your seat on-line a day or so prior to arrival in the first two rows behind the handicapped row. We’ll meet 15 minutes before screening begins in the lobby. 

This group will meet once per month or so and visit one of several movie theaters in Riverside and Redlands, alternating on either Sunday or Saturday for the first or second matinee, around 11 AM on the opening weekend of the movie. (Note: King Arthur was so bad, we’ll wait for reviews in planning the movies and dates and this one got 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.) We’ll watch keeping in mind that our discussion afterward over lunch or coffee follows how the film relates to current thinking about and events concerning religion and politics. 

How does the film reflect current events, attitudes, or aspirations? 

• Throughout the movie, a statement is being made on the human condition. What statement do you think is being made and do you agree? (What did the MOVIE INFO mean about the man when it said he was “awakening something hidden and monstrous within him as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul”.)
• Can we identify any political, social, or religious themes in these movies that influence the characters and affect the storyline?
• Can we see any Humanists in the film?
• Did the movie attempt to persuade its viewers to accept the particular values or principles that the writers presented? Was it or could it be successful? 

At lunch, we’ll chat as we order for a few minutes, then discussions will begin. So the whole group can enjoy the whole discussion, please no side conversations during this discussion time. Please do stay later and continue visiting, though after this short discussion period. 

MOVIE INFO

Imagine the end of the world. Now imagine something worse. Award-winning filmmaker Trey Edward Shults follows his incredible debut feature KRISHA with IT COMES AT NIGHT, a horror film following a man (Joel Edgerton) as he learns that the evil stalking his family home may be only a prelude to horrors that come from within. Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous domestic order he has established with his wife and son is put to the ultimate test with the arrival of a desperate young family seeking refuge. Despite the best intentions of both families, paranoia and mistrust boil over as the horrors outside creep ever-closer, awakening something hidden and monstrous within him as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul.
