What we're about

This group is for anyone who is intellectually humble, doesn't take themselves too seriously, and considers themselves a freethinker. We like having fun while challenging our ideas/beliefs as well as the ideas/beliefs of others. Unlike on social media, here there are no taboo topics. My only rule is to respect people, not ideas. Please join if you enjoy discussing epistemology, ethics, psychology, sociology, theology etc., or simply enjoy food and drinks.

If you have kids feel free to bring them as well.

First Friday - Law and Culture: After SCOTUS rulings, what next?

Needs a location

This month will be IN PERSON (outdoors). As always feel free to bring something to share.

We will have two topics: (1) Discussing our thoughts/feelings about the recent SCOTUS decisions and what (if anything) to do next; and (2) nominate another topic and vote as a group on what to discuss.

Ideas for discussion:
- What are the impacts of the SCOTUS decisions?
- Should we focus on changing the law, extra-legal solutions, or changing the culture?
- How to best change the law?
- How to best change hearts and minds?
- How to help those impacted?

Please sign up in advance for Freethinker Bloodletting Scalpel Edition

Needs a location

Let's do a blood drive for Red Cross. We need 50+ sign ups to schedule a bus to come to us. Even though this is too far out in the future, we need enough names for the bus to come to us. Please send me your first and last name so I can submit to the Red Cross.

We are entertaining the idea of picking up a public park to do this and combine it with a picnic/potluck for us to gather. That way we can donate, dine and delight in each other's company. This date is tentative but trying for a Saturday in October in honor of Halloween.

Initially I need full names of 50 people for them to make it worthwhile to even attempt to come to us. When you sign up please make sure you have your full name on the profile. If privacy is a concern, just message me on Meetup with your full name.

If potential donors have questions concerning their eligibility i.e. travel, medication and etc., they can call[masked] for more information.
