Dinner at Wig and Pen

Always open for a different venue, although Wig and Pen is a favorite, and barring rain, we can all eat outside on the patio!


Great food and great conversation with fellow atheists, freethinkers, secularists, et al. Families welcome and encouraged.

    I joined this group so I could respond to your comment. I am also an avid reader. I cut my teeth on Dawkins. I started a book group long ago. Our first read was The God Delusion. There were two Catholics in the group. It didn't work out well. We do need nurturing places to discuss topics that touch peoples core values so profoundly.
    This sounds like an interesting read, though I am at piece with my own mortality. Questions like Did man create god seem like no brainers, however. Man created god and organized religion ran with it. Don't get me going on what the church has done to women.
    I wonder if there's a place for discussions of books we've read in this group? Maybe a meetup can discuss it...
    Have you read Super Brain? Slightly off topic perhaps. The mind brain relationship is explored. And the power the reflexive brain has to erode peace.

      I'd love to discuss similar books. Dawkins, sure, but secular analytical books in general.

    I'm attending the UI Opera, Gilbert & Sullivan's Patience on Thursday night at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.
    I'm reading a very good book called Did Man Create God?: Is Your Spiritual Brain at Peace with your Thinking Brain, (2008) published by Hope Press, Duarante, CA. It's written by David E Comings, MD (a neurologist, a neuroscientist, a macro-geneticist, a micro-geneticist, and is an atheist, a "non-theist," i.e., one without a god-belief. Eight profound sections, the last of which is a SUMMARY: Did Man Create God? I've read a lot of books by such excellent writers as R. Dawkins, and many other atheists, but I put this at the top. It contains a lot of science of the brain and how various parts evolved and why. He writes for lay audiences but can explain and depict the details one needs to understand his points. He is also a birder: see ComingsBirds.com.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
