Metacognitive Brunch: a discussion group

Fancy a midday helping of open-ended intellectual exchange? Join a small group of aspiring critical thinkers for great, inexpensive food and lively discussion of topics relating to skepticism, secularism, science, philosophy, psychology, and other matters of the mind. We will meet outside, take a head count, and head inside as a group at 11:30 a.m. sharp. (If you arrive late, you're welcome to join us if sufficient seating is available, but there are no guarantees!) This event is tentatively scheduled for the second and fourth Sunday of each month.

    Sorry, this Sunday is a "Day of Silence" at New York Insight Meditation Society. And yeah I know the scientific case for meditation is not strong but I do it anyway. I'll miss you all but I won't be thinking about you, or anything if all goes well. :-)

      I, too, have gained so much from NY Insight this year. I also smile when I think about accepting these benefits -- without judgement.

      Well I am hoping they will nail down the scientific case in time but you are right. I couldn't agree more.

    Did everyone get e-skeptic? "All scientists are naturalists. When we do experiments in the laboratory or field we assume that the phenomena we study are guided by natural law and solely by natural law, and that natural law acts the same way at all times throughout the universe. We are uniformitarians; uniformitarianism holds that natural law is universal and eternal. We take for granted that we live, experiment and study nature in a closed universe where God never intervenes. This is a first principle of science. " -William S. Moore -I disagree that is a first principle of science, science could work fine without it, moreover these are not mere assumptions to the extent that we can physical constancy has been tested such by studying the fine constant in the early universe. (Sigh I miss Tobias already)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
