The Big One!

I'm not talking about earthquakes. In this case, it is the question that is unanswerable and haunts us all - Why are we here? We all have a sense of being and existence, but is it a chemical, biological or philosophical phenomena? A combination of all three? Or something else altogether? For this mother-of-all-discussions, we will have a special guest. Roger Nygard, a writer and director who just released a provocative documentary titled "The Nature of Existence." You can see the trailer and learn about Roger and the film here:
http://thenatureofexi... This will be a very special Deep Thinkers Meetup, so start thinking of questions and what you'd like to discuss with Roger and the group. We will start with a screening of the film (about 90 minutes) and continue with thoughts - deep thoughts! - on our existence and what it all means, if anything. I'm shaking with anticipation!

    The movie was great, as were the questions. It was fabulous to have Roger there to answer the questions and just sit and talk to us.

    This was a very different kind of documentary, very informative and well put together. Putting together a religious kind of documentary takes guts as most people are afraid to talk about religions as they are afraid they will lose their reservation in so called Heaven. I was not surprised that the Vatican refused to set up a meeting with the Producer. They are the most underground, secretive organization in the world. I can't wait for the producer of this documentary to put together the one on marriage. Just like religion, the basic principals behind the marriage concept are totally outdated. We live in the 20th century and much of the stuff "passed on" to us by friends, family, and authorities does not fit our present intelligence and broader awareness of life. We definitely need to update our preent old mental database. A million thanks to Todd for introducing us to Nyg...'s documentary.

    This is a free event, but we encourage people to purchase food to drink at the restaurant since they have been gracious enough to host us.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
