Drinking Skeptically

Come join us for an evening of fun, food, and your favorite beverage.

Drinking Skeptically is where CVAAS members and friends meet to discuss any topic.  Nothing is off the table.  Our one rule is this:  Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence!

We've recently changed venues to the Sequoia Brewing Company, which offers their backroom to us on Sunday nights.  Sequoia is a family restaurant and microbrewery, they have a varied menu full of tasty items.  And if you're not interested in an alcoholic beverage, they offer all the standard non-alcoholic beverages, including their own very tasty root beer!

We are there from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on the first Sunday of every month!

Come on down and join us!

    I'm listening to The Moral Landscape by Sam Harris right now - as recommended. His views and his critics comments align very well with what I was getting at with my own pondering.

      I'm doing a lot of writing on behavior and morality, "why do people do bad things?". I read a lot on the subject of neuroscience, cognition, decision making and lately morality. Kip and David pointed me to The Moral Landscape which is one I haven't read yet.

      What has lead you to Centrall Valley Allience of Atheist and Skeptics? Has this helped with your writing? What do you enjoy most about CVAAS?

    Sounds interesting, like everyone was able to express their own thoughts and feeling about particlar topics and situations. It also sounds like someone was able to go home with some additional material.

    Derek: there were 16 or so people in attendance. There were a few conversations but we talked about a few things. John brought some of his philosophical ideas and we talked about determinism and objective morality.

    My first meeting was very comfortable. A sit down dining situation with many like minded people to strike up conversations with.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
