Caffeinated Godlessness

  • August 9, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's get together and discuss topics in atheism, politics, culture, and anything else that our brains come up with. We always start with a central topic, and then let the discussion go where it will.

If you have a topic you'd like to discuss, please email me. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

*** We've been meeting in the back room at Espesso Art, but we are currently looking for a new home. They are turning that space into a bar soon.  I got word from Epic Cafe and the owner said we can try it out for a few weeks and see how it goes.  It won't be like having our own room upstairs of Espresso, but it might be the nest best thing.  So, we'll try it for August, and see how it goes.  Still keep your eyes peeled for another coffee shop that might be able to house us. ****

Hope to see you there!

Nancy

    I am posting this now because the last few weeks have been a mess well here it goes I was asked for references on my comment on Hinduism. The Diety in questions name is Mari or Marimman and the reference for the information in question can be found in. Paulin Kolenda's book: Pox and the terror of childlessness:Imagaes and Ideas od the Smallpox Goddess in a North Indan village. if you go to wikipedia with this dietys name and select "goddess of disease you can find several other papers including one from the WHO.

    enjoyed the wide range of views and seeing how others struggle with different aspects of godlessness. I've always been a loner, Nancy rang that bell with her "we're not like you" comment. Couldn't get Matt's "we're stupid and emotional" (my crude paraphrase) observation out of my head - it would make an interesting topic for discussion, like "How have we got this far, given our limitations?" Seems like some very gifted and "intelligent" people are narrow, rigid, bigoted, while others with similar talents seem alert, nimble, humorous, even inspirational. I wonder how many of us have stories about how we overcame, or wallowed in, our own stupidity and emotionality.

    Thought-provoking group! Next time I will budget more time. Lots of grist for the thought mill, and a welcoming bunch.

    I don't get the mag, but feel strongly that atheists must organize to fill some of the same needs as religions (see below). Am looking forward to discussing this.

      Sorry I can't be there to kick off the topic of "outreach", as I'm in Show Low for the summer. There is a large humanist group in Phoenix http://www.hsgp.org/­ with its own real estate, but I don't think the members are yet into outreach programs.

    Does anyone else receive Free Inquiry magazine (Council for Secular Humanism)? Is anyone as excited as I am about the groups who gain attention and accceptance through their good deeds and charity?
