Learn about freethinkers and skeptics, what it all means. If you're a scientist, a teacher, a student, a politician, or just curious a citizen this presentation is for you.
Cole Morgan will talk about the very active freethought/freethinking/skeptic community (KC FreeThinkers) in Kansas City. He'll explain how he helped collect & organize twelve groups over the past four years, which scatter from the center to all corners of KC and are of many flavors from speakers on education and sciences to purely social including all cultures and ages from 18 years old and up.
Josh Hyde, leader of their Northland group, will also join Cole and tell us how he became an active asset within this KC movement. While promoting these groups with a billboard in 2008, writing for
the KC Star, newspaper interviews, radio and TV Cole had plenty of wonderful help from many co-organizers. "These fantastic networking groups work because of so much help within our community," Cole said. Join Cole and Josh to see how it all came together and how KC FreeThinkers works in harmony with other KC groups! If you're skeptical then this is the presentation for you!
Members of this Meetup group and of the Beagle Society are free; all other will be asked for a $5.00 fee.
free-think-er n. A person who forms opinions about religion on the basis of reason, independently of tradition, authority, or established belief. Freethinkers are naturalistic. Truth is the degree to which a statement corresponds with reality. Reality is limited to that which is directly perceivable through our natural senses or indirectly ascertained through the proper use of reason.
We tend to be atheists, agnostics, humanists and secularists although people of faith are welcome to join us in our lively discussions of how freethought can counter dogma and promote a realistic, healthy, and compassionate world view. Hope to see you at the next Meetup!
