Let's pray for an answer.

How about calling for a few moments of quiet contemplation before a meeting? Then Christians, Muslims, Hindus, whatever can pray to their gods for guidance, and atheists can sit there and be quiet?

That sounds like a possibility Danny Chipman, but have you ever heard of an atheist being quiet?? Those i know never are and are never satisfied.

Hogwash! It's a perfect solution... and if an atheist afflicted with verbal dysentery does show up to make a stink, just explain the scientifically proven benefits of quieting the mind for short periods of time. If that doesn't work, just tell him/her that the moment of silence is for Darwin's birthday.

Or how about just starting the meeting and focusing on business, rather than trying to turn everything into a proselyting opportunity, or a Church meeting?

Why is it so hard for believers to just refrain from shoving your religion down everybody's throats?
