We are the first local chapter of The Circle of Reason , an international organization for pluralistic rationalism. We're a unique venue, where those with divergent beliefs and backgrounds engage in reasoning dialogue and fellowship across the gulf of human difference. Although our members remain affiliated with their various groups that rely on religious, atheist, biological, ethnic, cultural, economic, political or ideological kinship, they also join the Circle to examine and bring their different perspectives to the round-table of rational discourse, demonstrating the Circle's belief that communal commitment to reason will help bring humankind's next major step in moral evolution. Like the Ancient Greek Peripatetics, we nature-walk during our transbelief & transcultural reasoning dialogues on a wide range of topics. We're the place in the Twin Cities to find, recruit, converse with and encourage -- from all walks of life, all biologies, all beliefs, all societies -- those who are your own kinsmen and kinswomen: The reasoning kind!
