What was your path to skepticism?

Actually, my journey was long but thoroughly educational. I came to the realization that it is extremely unlikely that any part of us is immortal as well as coming to really know that I would still want to be a good person even without gods. The proverbial "straw" - I read Bertrand Rissell's Why I am Not a Christian.

What is the best day and time for you to meet?

Fri night 8pm, Sat 8pm, Sat 12noon, Sun 12noon. Sun - Thurs evenings 7pm

Are you alarmed by the state of scientific knowledge among the general population in America?

Very much so

Are there issues or topics you'd especially like to discuss?

Freedom of Speech, Secularism, Human Rights, activism, possibly - group travel to AAI conventions (and others), fun, friendship, and perhaps an occasional party, outing or trip :)


I'm a freethinker and an atheist and would love to make new friends with like-minded people
