Science & Health

Space: The need for increased meteor surveillance

Every Saturday evening we meet up to talk about current events from a Secular Humanist and Progressive Atheist perspective.

We cover a bit of everything from the separation of church & state, to the problematic things that religious fundamentalists do, to politics and human rights, and usually wrap up with an overview of the week's scientific breakthroughs and developments.

The presentation is facilitated by Jason Frye through a series of slides and videos. We carry on in a humorous, deep, irreverent, and fun fashion.

Our discussions are rarely boring, and often quite edgy. This is not merely a lecture: Everyone gets a chance to have their say!

We meet at Panera now.

We hope you can join us for a fantastic evening!
