No introduction yet
I've been a non-believer since I was about 12, but didn't have an understanding of all that entailed until I was in college. I began exploring the topics of epistemology, philosophy of science, scientific methodology, religious belief and apologetics, etc. It was some years later that I saw the term freethinker applied to the view that I developed through my educational experiences. I remain very curious about how believers maintain their faith...what do they actually believe and why...given the difficulties raised by our growing understanding of the cosmos without the need for a diety.
Lots of enthusiastic folks sharing a point of view and common experiences and problems. I expected some curiosity, but the &amp;#034;demand&amp;#034; to keep it going and do so fast was surprising. Our next meetup is in less than 2 weeks and they have requested that it be scheduled for every 4th Tuesday on a continuing basis. I may find that I&amp;#039;ve bitten off a rather large chunk of work here. A problem of riches. Not too hard to take.
I am trying to find someone who can give me a ride to the meetup group on Tuesday as I don't have a car and there are not evening buses. I live close to the Grand Rapids Bowling alley and if you know anyone who drives right by there and is willing to pick me up, please let me know. Thanks, Deb M at [masked]
