This is the weekly meeting of Piedmont Humanists. This weekTim Brennan, Ph.D. in Behavioral Science, will talk about the science of Caring, its characteristics and limitations, and how we can become better at it.
This group is inclusive of anyone who shares the beliefs of Humanism or Freethought. Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds that opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or any dogma. Humanism believes in the primacy of human, rather than divine or supernatual matters.
We hold a variety of meetups including coffee-shop social chats, book studies, lectures, movie viewing, invited speakers, good beer, pretty much anything our members are inclined to do to that involves a bit of organization. Want to go on a hike? Announce it and people will join up!
Enjoy a break from the pervasive religiosity of the area with like-minded friends (and new friends!) who don't mind that you don't "believe". Our members include ex-Fundies, seekers, not-sures and don't-cares; activists, deep thinkers, and deep drinkers. Musicians, electricians, retirees and students. Come on out and see who you can share your story with!
