"No Religion" on the Rise. 19.6% have no Religious Affiliation. Gilbert and I will talk about this for 15 mins or so then watch the film. Also, I was given a Dedication Award from Kansas City Atheists Coalition (KCAC) at the RAM this past Saturday. What a surprise! I'll bring it tonight and say a little about what lead up to that evening.
Midwest Skeptics Society:
"Guns, Germs & Steel" Video Part Three. (Book by Jared Diamond) tonight Sat, Oct 13, 7pm at Perkins. This is a great video we began two weeks ago. JOIN US FOR THE CONCLUSION. Each one hour
segment stands on its own. So if you missed the first two you can still enjoy this one. To RSVP go to: http://www.meetup.com/skeptics-137/
A PBS documentary concerning Jared Diamond's theory on why there is such disparity between those who have advanced technology and those who still live primitively. He argues it is due to the acquisition of guns and steel and the changes brought about by germs.
This is a fantastic video. Each of the three segments stand on their own with three endings.
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/
