Religions can define many things as SINS.  In this meeting we'll share perspectives on think we enjoy, things of value, things of meaning and things of fun that are seen as sins by some releigons.

    The discussion was especially lively. I'm always so impressed by everyone's knowledge of the Bible. Not having been exposed to it much as a child, I've never spent much time "re-examining" it. Anyway, it was good to hear everyone's stories and thoughts. Thanks to Russ and Laurie for starting this wonderful group and keeping it going.

    It was my first meeting, and I really enjoyed the group. I felt a little out of place at first, no one rushed to greet me. Once the meeting got going I became more comfortable. What a wonderful, thoughtful group of intellectuals. Thank you for having me, I look forward to the next meeting and getting to know all of you better.

      I'm afraid we tend to rely on Laurie (who is almost always there) to be our welcoming committee. I'll try to keep it in mind to say hi to new people in the future even if Laurie has to miss the meeting. I almost told you I liked your jacket (I'm Italian, too) but the moment passed me by. Glad you warmed up to us!

    Best book I recently finished has been Anathem by Neil Stephenson. (Huge NS fanboy here!) I'ts sci fi, and it's a huge tome on the scale of Dune. The scenario is an alternate earth-like planet (not earth-based - think Alderaan) in which all the genius-level thinkers and research scientists have been ensconced in walled monasteries for centuries (because they started "playing god", and scaring the regular people with their magic), in which science and rational thought has been elevated to the equivalent of a religion. During a world-level crisis the mathics are called upon to help save the world. The book serves as a platform for an in-depth discussion/explanation of multiverse hypothesis, brilliant socratic dialog. And neil stephenson's obsession with "crossing the tundra" is examined yet again, if you've read anything of his.

    I'm reading "Indisputable Proof" by Gary Williams and Vicky Knerly. Ity's a wild adventure involving archeologists on the trail of relics that would prove Christ's existence, an apparently atheist-terrorist group strealing relics that already supposedly exist and are also trying to thwart the archeologists (but that group may be a cover for someone else) and a dying billionaire who will give it all to anyone who can prove life after death.

    I have never been to a GUST meeting before but I was planning on attending this Sunday to see what the group was like.

      Look forward to meeting you, Jo. Just a note, it is on Monday at 7pm, not Sunday.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
