Feel like you are going crazy from uncertainty and need some GOOD answers to the big questions in life? This is definitely the place to be. I have a big basement we can hang out in and talk all day about deep critically important questions. Now the first thing you are probably wondering is "what does he mean by intellectual?" You might be scared off by this word so let's clear up definitions.

1) NOT pretentious. Being pretentious is anti-intellectual. We aren't here to argue over grammar, technicalities, definitions of words, spelling, etc... We are here to try and understand each other and consider what other people are trying to say. This is not a knowledge competition, and we want to make an effort to understand each other. If someone doesn't understand something you explain it... You don't try to make them feel dumb.                                                                                                                                                                            

2) No book throwing... While I encourage you to extract relevant arguments out of books, you really don't need to read all of Mein Kampf or the Bible to get the jist of it. Most books can be summarized. Just extract arguments from the book, and if you are extracting a ton of useful relevant info, then we will consider reading it. We can figure out the relevance for our selves, and make up our own minds.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            3) NOT politically correct. No censoring is tolerated, any topic ever is open for discussion.                                                                                                                                                                                                       

4) Inclusive... Instead of having people have to force their way into a discussion/interrupt we actually pause and ask people for their opinions time to time.        

5) Lastly of course, intelligent... There should be SOME logical merit to an idea, and hopefully we can have a serious discussion as opposed to a silly one.
