CFI-Harlem is a local discussion group of the Center for Inquiry in New York City. CFI-Harlem offers an opportunity to put your principles into practice by joining other rationalists and freethinkers to work for positive change in society. We organize a monthly meeting and occasional intellectual programming.
Monthly discussions are on the last penultimate Saturday of every month, except for December, when the group does not meet. Meetings run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Suggested topics for the August meetup:
(1) Discussion of personal events and processes that led members to critical thinking; how it has affected their lives and relationships.
(2) Faith vs Belief vs Facts: their differences, virtues, failings and effects.
(3) How can we bring in new members and grow our organization?
For good examples of (1) and (2) see "Epiphany" and "Unexamined Belief" in KOUKEN. You can get a PDF version of KOUKEN (free of course) by sending an e-mail request to [masked]
