MIDWEST SKEPTICS SOCIETY:
"Atheism, Buddhism and Meditation" by Mick Goodman this coming Sat, Nov 12, 7pm at Perkins. Mick gave an
interesting talk a few months back on his journey to becoming an atheist. I'm sure this one will be equally as good. JOIN US! We'll go out afterwards for more chat at a local pub.
After an overview of basic Buddhist concepts from a Western point of view and the story of the Buddha, we'll explore the practice of Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation and how it relates to the acceptance of reality and rejection of belief. A couple of books will be reviewed, Buddhism Without Beliefs and Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist, both by Stephen Batchelor, a former Buddhist monk.
>>>Afterwards we will go out for drinks and more conversation at a nearby joint. This is always a great topper for the night.<<<
Do you enjoy rational discussion, logic, and learning? What about hanging out with like-minded people who also enjoy these things?
Questioning what we are told is an incredible attribute that humans have and we should exercise it by encouraging critical thought!
Anyone is welcome to join, but this group is intended for those who want to question dogma and learn from others, while having fun with people who do the same.
Come and join us for fun nights in the midtown area to see live music, have a beer, a delicious nibble, or pass out fliers next to evangelists in Westport that have a message of peace rather than threats of Hell and fear of pleasure! Let's enjoy the one life we have and let others do the same! :)
There are TONS of meetup groups around the Kansas City area. To join another nearest to you and meetup with other skeptics and freethinkers, and to learn more about the Freethought movement visit: http://kcfreethinkers.org/
