2 Events: Critical Thinking Tue & on Wed, Freethought Breakfast.

#1) State Line Classic this Tuesday, July 17, 6:30pm at Panera Bread. I love their toasted bagels and the cream cheese selection is delicious. 

I chose a topic about critical thinking in public schools.  Bring something you want to talk about.  

Carl Sagan talked plenty about the scientific method and critical thinking during his life. I believe his book, published in 1997, "The Demon-Haunted World" is a perfect example of this. I'll bring it Tuesday and read a little from it. Excellent read!  


The Demon-Haunted World:

In my review for The Times of London of The Demon-Haunted World, I mentioned a chapter heading of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos. “Who Speaks for Earth?” I went on that it was “a rhetorical question that expects no particular answer, but I presume to give it one. My candidate for planetary ambassador, my own nominee to present our credentials in galactic chancelleries, can be none other than Carl Sagan himself. He is wise, humane, polymathic, gentle, witty, well-read, and incapable of composing a dull sentence.”
Richard Dawkins

In his later books, such as Pale Blue Dot and The Demon-Haunted World, he took on—ably and daringly—the pseudoscience and nonscience that rots the American mind, ranging from creationism and alien abductions to beliefs in astrology. At a time when The X-Files and its clones dominate the airwaves, Carl’s loss is doubly tragic.
Author C Clarke

#2) FREETHOUGHT BREAKFAST this coming Wed, July 18, 8am at Olathe I-Hop at 119th & Strange Line Rd.  This is always a fun way to wake up: delicious food and hot conversation!  This is a good way to see what is happening in the FreeThought world of Kansas City.  Last time 14 showed up.  

Join us for the fun of it!


We meet the 1st & 3rd Wed every month 8 to 10 am (or longer) for casual conversation and good food at Olathe I-Hop restaurant 119th and Strang Line Rd across from Home Depot.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about our other groups and see what is happening in the freethought world. Usually 8-14+ FreeThinkers show up.
***When there is a 5th Wed of the month, to fill the gap, we will have a new location in different parts of the Metro area.  Don't want to go too long without talking about FreeThought in our community, or any topic, over a delicious breakfast.  Tom and I are looking for new locations for this 5th Wed breakfast meetup so if you have a suggestion please let us know.***
