    Most of us have read Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens and Dennett. These authors are incredible, but by far not the first. Humanists and other Freethinkers are heir to a special legacy of robust and dynamic thought and literature. Every first and third Tuesday we get together to examine a classic work in Freethought.

    You don’t need to have already read the book, but it helps. We put together a comprehensive presentation on each of the works so that everyone who shows up gets to discuss the book-but we recommend that you read each one in order to get the most out of the discussion, and because it gives you more to share.

    We strive to make these books as convenient and affordable. Each session, there will be an Amazon link to the material, and often links to free online pdf files.

    Since I started thinking again, after 40 years of ‘’grindstoning’’ it, I find I like ‘’quotes’’ by other people (learned, or famous, or experienced, or not). This presents a quandary for me. I lose interest pretty quickly when someone is saying something like; ‘’Jefferson meant this…’’, or ‘’Kant said that…’’, or ‘’Kennedy was for…’’ because the discussion most usually turns into a verbal slugfest of ‘’Old Guy, probably Dead Guy’’, positions on Issues, and nothing new seems to ever come out of it. And so it is with some glee, and no small bit of hypocrisy, that I post a quote that I find particularly edifying.
    Two by James D. Watson,
    ‘’I just can’t sit while people are saying nonsense in a meeting without saying its nonsense.’’
    This quote tickled my funnybone. I’ve been there many times.
    ‘’Constantly exposing your ideas to informed criticism is very important…’’
    I like this so much I’m making it a Personal Principle.
