Humanist Study Group
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. At this meeting, the group will begin reading and discussing Greta Christina's new book Why are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things that Piss Off the Godless. We will try to get though the Introduction and the first two chapters (thru page 56). These two chapters include her list of 99 problems she has with religion and expected responses from the religious as to her concerns. These are all issues relevant to humanists of the atheist or secular persuasion.
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!
