Humanist Society of the Suncoast

Hear Dave ‘Doc’ Dockery on

Further thoughts on the future of our species

  Doc, who is president of the Tampa Bay Computer
Society has agreed to share some of his perspectives
on where and when we are going, and how we might
get there.  He will expand further on the themes
developed in our Darwin Day presentation. 
  With his unique understanding of technology and
the significant role it plays in our lives, he will
address such topics as machine ‘consciousness’ and
our growing codependency on our own creations.

  “Come join Doc as he explores the current
state of research into the workings of the human
brain.  Brain research is advancing at an awesome
clip.  We'll take a fascinating look at what's in
store for our future.”

      I disagree about Dockery...First time attending. No one greeted me. Not a very friendly bunch. Disappointed and felt shut down by Dave when I disagreed with him, he called me a republican and moved on to the next rude and closed minded! I still hold the root of the health and education crisis is access to it for the impoverished of our society. Does that make me a republican?

      Amy hi, I am sorry that you were disappointed, I did not stay that day I had to leave and attend the arts festival in Tampa, Stick around and you will see how wonderful we are, I can only speak of my self, but you have to have an open mind also every one is not the same way. Maybe the agenda was loaded since we only meet once a month, but I can assure you we have plenty of wonderful people and the president never fails to greet anyone, that was the first and he probably was not aware of it. Hope to see you in the future events your input is very important to us all.

    Here's a link to a story about 2 children who died because their parents prayed instead of taking them to the doctor - unbelievable in 2014!;_ylt=A0SO8yblbAVTd1gAYOxXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTByNDV0ZTJpBHNlYwNzYwRjb2xvA2dxMQR2dGlkA1VJQzFfMQ--
