Have you ever wondered why atheists don't believe in God? Come ask one!

Join the Secular Humanists of UNL in the NE Union auditorium Wed. Nov. 7 to hear a six-student panel discussion wherein the students will first talk about their own experiences as atheists, (discussing why they don't believe in God, any religious affiliations they used to have, and experiences with religion), then there will be time for the audience to ask them questions about atheism and their views on religion. The purpose is to give a human face to atheists, who are so often stigmatized or ignored,and portray them as people with legitimate worldviews.
