    Sorry the subject this month was not very upbeat. But it is an important topic and I thought we did have some good discussion. Guess we need to have more "socials" to lighten the mood from time to time. Thanks everyone for attending and participating.

      Doug, I am happy that you and Gail stepped up to the plate and are hosting the next social! We are looking forward to gathering with everyone in a casual setting. I am sure it will lighten the mood of the group! :)

      Well Renee, the gathering Gail and I are having isn't really "that" social. The 13th is only the 2nd Sat and not third etc.. just something we planned a while ago to celebrate our daughter's last chemo treatment and two family birthdays. That's why I didn't say anything at the mtg. but we'd certainly welcome anyone who'd like to drop by.

    The meetup was food for the mind, as always! I enjoy our meetings because it get's your brain in gear for deep thinking about a variety of topics. It is never boring but thought provoking. I am happy for the opportunity to get to know my fellow Freethinkers, a little more each time that we gather! See you at the next meetup!

    News item noted on the Internet today - - Do We Need God to be Moral?
    By COLUMN By LEE DYE | ABC News 
    One of the world's leading primatologists believes his decades of research with apes answers a question that has plagued humans since the beginning of time. Are we moral because we believe in God, or do we believe in God because we are moral?
    Frans de Waal argues in his latest book that the answer is clearly the latter. The seeds for moral behavior preceded the emergence of our species by millions of years, and the need to codify that behavior so that all would have a clear blueprint for morality led to the creation of religion, he argues.

    Google should yield the whole article, and if not I can email it to you on request.

    Not 100% certain if I will make it. Going to need to get some body work done on the car and depending on openings, may have to drop it off in the shop.

    I've been asked to share some info that may be of interest to those planning to attend the April meeting. In the March 18 issue of the New Yorker on page 28 is an article titled The Dark Ages. Near the end of that piece is a description of the meetings held in the White House that identifies targets of the Drone strikes. Sounds like this may be a some useful info for the discussion. Thanks Jerry for bringing this to our attention.
