    There are lots of places to meet new people, however, I think that secular humanists are in the back of the closet here in Edmonton. I'm willing to meet on Oct 17th provided there are enough people to have a lively discussion. Is anyone interested in any theme? Without a posposed theme most if not all the evening does become small talk.

    Perhaps we could spend one hour discussing a theme and then the next half hour or so on how to generate more interest?

    Possible themes:
    - Favorite secular author(s) & why? C. Hitchens, R Dawkins, D.Dennett, S. Harris, P Boghossian, etc. etc.
    - Favorite secular Big Screen movie and what was the best moment in the flick?
    -Favorite secular small Screen movie and what was the most important message?
    -What is your favorite secular publication (perhaps for now we can leave this open to no only secular huminism, but other secular areas such as atheism, agnosticism, humanism, etc.

    Feedback??

      How about what is your favorite movie either written by or starring a secular humanist? What was your favorite scene from the movie and why? If that's not enough we could also delve into any readings that we have done in the last month.

      I think if we start with something very light and get into more substantial topics like you suggest, I think it would be a very good meet-up.

    I just opened the Edmonton site. I think this might help people who live in Edmonton get together much more easily.

      Not sure what you mean by this.... is there a separate group for Edmonton? I searched but other groups came up.

    Hi Gena, will there be any theme to the October event?

      Hi Janet, I'm certainly open to the theme idea. You've brought forth several good places to start. It has been my experience that previous attendees were not as open to a guided conversation. Current events both local and abroad are often discussed. Mostly however it's been personal experiences or what those attending felt most pressing.
      I will often read up on a variety of topics to ask questions on in case the need to start conversation arises. And to avoid over dabbling into just weather or sports or computer topics. :)
      Conversation varies with those who attend. I've found with intelligent free thinking individuals the best discussions happen when we simply come together.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
