Humanist Study Group - History of American Secularism

This group is devoted to the study of humanism and related topics including the sources of human ethics and morality, how the brain works, anthropology and sociology.  We are currently reading and discussing the book "Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism" by Susan Jacoby.  We will be reading and discussing chapter 8 (Unholy Trinity: Atheists, Reds, Darwinists).

We meet at a private residence in an apartment complex, so do not park in spaces with numbers on then. Best parking, is the parking row near the tennis courts, but any parking space not numbered will work.  The apartment is located off of a sidewalk behind the southern tier of buildings.

This is a potluck, so bring some food, snacks or drinks to share!

If you would like to suggest a topic or be put on an email distribution list and from time to time receive resource materials and reminders, send an email request to [masked] - PLEASE SPECIFY that you want on the Humanist Study Group list!

Also, note that many participants in this group do not reserve through this Meetup site.  We generally have a pretty good group, so do not be dissuaded from attending if only a few have signed up here!

    We are in a very interesting part of the book - Catholic opposition to public education and birth control and general discussion of how free thinkers tie into alternative political systems.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
