“ It&amp;#039;s a great group with interesting people and no specific topic, pretty much open forum. Been to 2 meetings so far one had a very large turnout and the other a smaller turnout. Pros and Cons to both like with everything. ”

“ The group steadily attracts more people, happily. We are growing. There is great diversity in backgrounds. There are usually five or six newcomers at every meeting. Variety is the spice of life! Where else would you find such different theolodical and educational backgrounds, different ages and even different generations? At a "real church", maybe, only I think not. We have lots of very young freethinkers " in their 20's", and all in between, even, octagenarians! Dress is informal ~~ come as you are. We appreciate the hospitality of the Tyler Chamber of Commerce, and always try to respect their property and the relatively conservative context. They even have facilities to screen dvd's, which we often like to show, including currently six 30-minute episodes of THE ATHEIST TAPES, which feature internationally known scholars like Richard Dawkins and Arthur Miller. Some have compared the group with a MENSA meeting. A high level of critical thinking. ”

“ to ameliorate the effects of religion ”

“ If we go back to the beginning, we shall find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that fancy, enthusiasm, or deceit adorned them; that weakness worships them; that credulity preserves them and that custom, respect and tyranny support them in order to make the blindness of men serve their own interests. If the ignorance of nature gave birth to gods, the knowledge of nature is calculated to destroy them. Baron D?Holbach, cited in Jonathan Miller. (2004). A Brief History of Disbelief [TV-Series]. ”

“ I don't know how to reply to this question, but if you are a sceptick of the religious system at all, then this would be a great place to meet others that would sit down and talk with you and just plan have a good time and relax. ”
