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 the restaurant, take a head count, and head inside as a group at 11 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.

    This was the first time at this Meetup group and I had a good time. As for the "proper scope", resonable, intelligent people will disagree on what is "proper". For the most part I think the conversation was reasonable. As for the size of the Meetup there are advantages and disadvantages on limiting to a "proper" size. The disadvantage is that it can limit the number of new people. There are logistitical disadvantages with having a large group. I particpated in both the larger conversation and the smaller conversations at my end of the table.

    I'm running really late, hopefully there will be a seat at the end of the table for me (sorry)

      good to see you made it and got your prophesied "seat at the end of the table". We elders at the other end hived off Pat and Marc's discussion of Cf i internal structure for our own talk about the direction American society is taking into the future, great fun!!

      Dorothy, it was great seeing you again! I'm sorry for contributing to the redundant conversation critiquing the necessity of offshoots and CFI. Although regardless of the topic, I think the long mostly rectangular table makes it difficult to interact with everyone. Wish I were able to hear you guys discussing the future of secularism.

    The meeting for the most part was a discussion between two people of a subject that wasn't particularly interesting. There was so little group communication that one end of the table started their own discussion.

    Hijacked by pointless duopoly about defining purposes of CFI groups (or something like that). Intellectual discussion is NOT wandering off into the weeds on hair-splitting points or topics of no general interest. Fortunately our end of the table just hived off and had a fine time discussing any number of things not related to CFI group definition policy or whatever (which I recommend be banned as a topic).

    I see that DST starts that morning. I'd better remember to change the clocks at home.

    My +1 starting a new job trumps even a lovely brunch, another time then.
