Trying to be good without God since 1982.
There isn't a bad time to meet up with open-minded people.
I belong to what is a significant minority of human beings: Those who are—as Pascal puts it in his Pensées, his great apology for Christianity—“so made that they cannot believe.”
Murfreesboro Freethinkers is a great group of people and I'm very glad to be a part of it. My fiancee and I started attended meetings of this group in the search for other free-thinking people. There's great consolation to be had in spending time with other open-minded people from time to time. This is especially the case given how often we find ourselves bombarded by so many of the close-minded and dogmatic lot that also calls Middle Tennessee home. The Murfreesboro Freethinker group's premise, be it on book discussions or simply expositions from its members on topics concerning skepticism, theism, etc., really works not just because the topics are relevant and pertinent to our day to day lives, but because the comradery we share so tangibly demonstrates how not all those who happen to meet on Sundays must necessarily be superstitious. : )
