Because we will be paying some of Katherine's travel expenses for her visit, we will be asking for a $5 donation the
In addition, copies of Katherine's book will be available for $8 with each donation. We need to guarantee a minimum sale of 20 books, or generate sufficient income to cover the cost of 20 books. If we cannot meet this, then the event will have to be canceled.
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! :)
