April 3, 2010
I'm a scientist and professor by day, and philosopher by night. I believe our civilization would've been better off had it spent equal time advancing both its scientific and ethical methodologies. It's time our species began living up to its name, "Homo sapiens."
I organize the 6-yr old 300+ First Minneapolis Circle of Reason, the 7-yr old 400+ Secular Bible Study, & the new Circle of Ijtihad Meetups -- each a venue to practice "pluralistic rationalism" by reasoning dialogue across our disparate worldviews.
April 3, 2010 is Day One for The Circle in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Calling all Rationalists, Objectivists, Trekkers (and not just Vulcans), Theists, Atheists, Humanists, Transhumanists, Singularitarians, Geeks, E.T.s or A.I.s (we'll keep your secret), Skeptics, Brights, Not-so-Brights, Freethinkers, Dogmatists, Politicos, Pundits, Saints, Sinners and Sensei, Differently-Abled, Races, Genders, and Orientations -- and every denomination thereof! It's time to meet the enemy, 'cause "they" is us!
