Discussion by: pointzeroI live where the Mormon church believes Adam and Eve lived after being ostracized from the Garden of Eden in Genesis. They believe 100% that this is where humanity spawned from, and everything comes back to here. This is a very small rural farming community now (~2,000 people) and I happen to be the one atheist in a 30 mile radius. In fact, I’ve had to keep this secret from everyone for fear of persecution. I want to put a larger emphasis on science, truth, and understanding in this area, mostly because I don’t want similarly minded secularists (if they’re out there) to feel oppressed for holding their views and for a general acceptance of opposing beliefs. I am asking you brilliant people how I should approach this..? Would starting clubs, groups or other activity-like things be effective? Maybe have a speaker visit? (Would be amazing if Mr. Dawkins himself thought it’d be worth a visit) Any ideas would be appreciated. I hope this fits the forum, as I’m new and not quite sure how to approach this. Thanks again!
