How did you find our site and have you previously heard about The Center for Inquiry?

I am a memeber of CFI.

What topics or social issues are of interest to you?

Church/State issues and all issues involving the separation thereof. One of the principal goals in my life is to help eradicate 12th century thinking.

Do you use any of these terms ( rationalist, freethinker, spiritual, skeptic, atheist, agnostic, traditional believer, humanist) to describe yourself? (Please add any "labels" you feel would apply)

Yes, all of them except "believer."


CFI/NEO is home to some of the most enlightened and intelligent heathens in the mid-west!

What Al B. is saying about this Meetup Group

The "debate" was one of the worst ever. Not because Dr. Singham couldn't deliver. Oh, no. He did so magnificently. It was because Puckett reveled himself to be a totally unschooled, un-nuanced, and basically clueless individual. He was no match for Dr. Singham at all. Mano may have just as well debated a pre-teen, fresh out of Saturday night catechism class, on the issues. Seriously, who in the hell would have ever imagined that Puckett would trout out Chesterton and Lewis - both defuncted characters - to defend his goddy position? And when Puckett began rambling on and on about how love, music, art, etc prove god, that was it. I had enough. I went runnin' for my car and got the hell out before my brain exploded. OMG! What a goof. Very embarrassing.
