Introduction

Hoping to find a meeting of the minds and a comfortable place for dialogue.

Do you have an open mind--open to the possibility that you may be wrong about something?

Yes, as an educator, I realize there are often many "right" answers. I can be opinionated, but appreciate greatly the opinions of others as well.

Are you willing to have your beliefs and ideas challenged; and to challenge ours?

I am, even though it has taken some time to be able to "come out" and stand strong in my beliefs. There's always room for growth, learning and change.

Are you familiar with some basic logical fallacies? If not, please do an Internet search and learn about them.

This has been an interesting discussion that takes me way back to the college days and philosophy classes. I am not as familiar as others in thegroup, but am looking forward to the learning and discussion process. It's going to be a great learning experience to explore these and make me stronger in my arguments and communication of beliefs.

How did you hear about the Suncoast Skeptics?

I was looking for groups on Meetup, which my son introduced me to, and found the group through search topics.

What Anita Macauley is saying about this Meetup Group

I always enjoy the meetings and the company. The conversations are stimulating, the venues are comfortable, and the topics are of interest to me. I am proud to be associated with this meetup group.

    You bring an certain organization and structure to the meetings and pleasant demeanor. It is certainly not easy to mesh the diverse outlooks of group members, the group concept being based on a negative. A negative is not bad, it just means we have to base our outlook on something of substance, be it science, possibly materialism or just plain common sense.

    Anita -- Did you see my message about hitching a ride?

    Also, I'm very sorry I was a no-show this evening. I had a busy day and forgot. Begging forgiveness,

    Tru
