Cafe Inquiry

Cafe Inquiry is our monthly casual get-together to meet people and discuss topics of science and humanism.

-------------

The topic for this month’s Café Inquiry is current events from an atheist/secular humanist/skeptic perspective. 

As we discuss these topics, we will consider whether we think atheists/secular humanists/skeptics have unique or particular perspectives to add to current events. 

Some suggested current events to discuss include:

·  Ferguson/racist police brutality

·  Ebola

·  Isis

·  Middle east politics: Syria, Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kurds

·  Bill Maher/Sam Harris vs. Ben Affleck on Islam and liberalism

·  Domestic violence in sports

·  Gay marriage


-------------

Past Cafe Inquiry topics have included:

  • What makes people more or less religious?

  • Bullying

  • Free speech

  • Gun ownership

  • Social and political change

  • Prostitution

  • Reason vs. emotion

  • Democracy

  • Overpopulation

  • Inalienable rights

No outside food or drink allowed. Free and open to the public.

We are also planning to go out for food and/or drinks afterwards. Free and open to the public.

Interested in leading a discussion or have someone to recommend? Please contact us at dc[at]centerforinquiry.net.

The venue is wheelchair accessible. People with disabilities who anticipate needing accommodations or who have questions about physical access may email sdavis [at] centerforinquiry [dot] net in advance of the event.

    Hi guys! It's been too long... I'm gonna try hard to make it this time, if the Universe can behave itself for half a d***n minute, and not throw any tacks or nails onto my towards-Cafe-Inquiry street... see you there, hopefully! :)
