Topic: Belief and Evidence (make-up session)

IMPORTANT: Please do not RSVP for both the 12/11 meeting and the 12/12 meeting. Limit your RSVP to one of these dates. I have set up this make-up session due to the number of people who put themselves on the wait list for the 12/12 meeting, and I want to make sure that more members have an opportunity to participate in the topic. If you are currently on the attendee list or the wait list for the 12/12 meeting but would prefer to attend on 12/11, please cancel your 12/12 RSVP first before RSVPing for the 12/11 meeting; this will help ensure that all members get the night they prefer.

There is no wait list set up for this 12/11 make-up session.


At our November meeting, a member proposed the following questions: Why do we have beliefs? Why don't we base all decisions on reason and evidence?

These questions were posed in the spirit of a broader consideration about belief, beyond a religion or a system of beliefs.

The group voted in favor of discussing these questions, so I've posted the topic for this meeting as "Belief and Evidence" so that we can explore these questions.

All members are encouraged to RSVP, but please do so as soon as possible since spots fill up quickly. 

We will meet on the second level of the Barnes & Noble store, to the right of the cafe counter area in the back of the store (but not in the cafe itself). You will see a circle of folding chairs (and possibly a folding table) if you walk up to the cafe counter and then look to your right to the back wall of the store.

Please make sure to RSVP only if you are able to attend since RSVPs are limited. If you RSVP, but need to change your plans, please make sure to come back to the meetup site to change your RSVP to provide others with an opportunity to RSVP for this meetup.

I look forward to seeing you!

    I can only make it on Thursday nights- if someone want s to change a Thursday for a Wednesday, would work for me. Thanks

    Having a "make-up" session is a great idea! Unfortunately, I expect to be busy Wednesday evening, so I'll remain waitlisted for Thursday and hope for the best. :)
