Questioning the Existence of God


If you know in your heart of hearts whether or not God exists, this discussion is NOT for you. 

This includes those who find the answer in the New Testament,  in the Old Testament, in the Koran, or from any source one may draw inspiration. 

This applies equally to those who categorically deny the existence of God.

This discussion will try to make sense of a very delicate question. This discussion is a place to gain value from the positive thoughts and feedback of group members. This discussion will be a safe place; a place free of all judgment. 

We will begin our meeting with the understanding that the thoughts and prayers of those who have already decided whether or not God exists will not and cannot be judged for any reason.

Please respect the wishes of the group moderator and other group members and do not debate this issue in the comments section. No one's opinion will change on account of your words.

By RSVPing you are certifying that you have open questions (large or small) on the issue of God's existence.  Should this turn out not represent your true views, you will asked to leave the discussion.

I urge you to dress warmly as the Eagle's Nest isn't the best heated.

We again are offered the space free and everyone is encouraged to order additional food and beverages.

The rules for this meet are simple:

1. Be civil 
2. Be on time 
3. Stay on topic 
4. Speak to the moderator to reply and not to the last speaker if you disagree.

5. Read and watch the materials before attending for context and understanding.

6. Be ready to talk. This is a "no wallflower" zone.

If you cannot make this event, please un-RSVP within 24 hours prior to the event.  By not doing so, you are depriving someone else of a seat.  

I understand emergencies.  

Otherwise it's rude as hell and if you don't show you'll be deleted from future events that I host. 

On your phone it's pushing, scrolling,  and then pushing again.

See you all soon.

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.
