"A religion old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge." ...Carl Sagan

 

This is a social event for our little group.  Everyone is invited, even if it is your first time visiting our group.  (If you have never attended a previous meeting, feel free to attend this one.)

Someone (as the time approaches) will be sending an email to coordinate who brings what, so make sure to rsvp to be included.

==============

Spirituality can mean something that I'm very sympathetic to, which is, a sort of sense of wonder at the beauty of the universe, the complexity of life, the magnitude of space, the magnitude of geological time. All those things create a sort of frisson in the breast, which you could call spirituality."
~
Richard Dawkins (atheist author)

==============

“The universe is large and we are tiny, without the need for further religious superstructure. One can have so-called spiritual moments without belief in the spirit.” 
~
Alain de Botton (atheist author)

    I'm writing an e-booklet. Hopefully I'll have a first draft for everyone to see by then. I sure hope so... this is taking so much longer than I imagined!
