4th Sunday Outing: Land's End Walk n' Talk

A fundamental precept of secular Humanism is the idea of progress, the belief that the general historic trend is to a more moral and rational society. This belief is examined in “The Fallacy of Human Freedom” by John Gray (review here, discussion here). Are we, as individuals and a society, free to evolve ethically? If not, what are the implications for humanism?

Please take a look at the above links and come prepared to discuss while walking at Land’s End. Some of the most spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the Golden Gate can be viewed from Land's End. ( http://www.parksconservancy.org/visit/park-sites/lands-end.html .  We will meet up at the Civic Center BART station at Grove and Market and convoy from there to provide rides to anyone who prefers not to drive. If you want to go there directly we will meet at the flagpole in the main Land’s End parking lot near the ruins of the Sutro Baths. We will meet at the BART station at 10:00 and at the flagpole at 11:00.

This will be a moderately difficult walk, with some small hills on dirt trails. Expect to walk for about one and half to two hours so it might be a good idea to eat before the event. We will stop periodically to discuss the topic.  We recommend bringing both sunscreen and a light jacket, as well as sunglasses and water.

Phil Crawford is the leader of this event.

    It was the first Bay Area Humanists meetup I attended, and I really enjoyed talking and getting to know the half a dozen or so people who attended.

    Sounds fun. Is the meeting point outside the Burger King entrance to Civic Center BART? I would also like a ride. Thanks!
    (I copied my question from another meetup with this same event.)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
