“ Great to find good-sized group of interesting, intelligent, friendly, and humorous conversationalists nearby - in Gastonia, Hickory, or Charlotte. Group has such magnetic draw that Gastonia finally has Charlotte people commuting there for it, instead of the other way around. Excellent! For 'most any thinker, religious or non-religious. Come relax and have a blast! ”

“ Everyone should join the effort to help us as a species to truly understand the urgent importance of attaining accurate beliefs, and therefore of being willing to share and compare ideas. Belief as an act of obedience will get us all killed. (Well, at least our great grandchildren.) Free thought is most valuable if shared with those who believe differently than oneself. This group has the potential for contributing something of great value to our species. ”
