Sunday Meeting - Are You Reasonable?

Curt Collier, Leader
Joseph Marvel Presides

NeoNazi gunmen, reactionary politics, civil wars, sexual slavery, conscripted child soldiers, rapacious capitalism at the expense of our shared environment, the spread of fundamentalism, climate change deniers.

Despite our claims to live in a more enlightened age, we continue to live in a world that is little changed from that of our grandparents. We often struggle to make sense of what is going on around us, to analyze and reanalyze the events of the day to gain some glimmer of understanding. Why can't we all just be reasonable? This begs the question, what is "reason." What makes people reasonable? Will being more reasonable solve our problems? This talk will explore the human capacity for reason, and will ask the question, "are you reasonable?"

Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is available for most wheelchair users with prior arrangements. Please call ahead [masked] x 107) for setup of our portable system and plan to arrive one hour before start time.

    An interesting overview was given on the importance of "humanness" (as in "not devoid of emotion") when thinking reasonably, which I found fascinating.
