Inquiring Minds

Topic: Why is there religion?

This is a pretty big topic to tackle, don't you think? That will, of course, make it just that much more interesting. There is the anthropological angle, the historical angle, the philosophical angle, the evolutionary angle, the neuroscientific angle, and more. And I'm sure that we'll talk about cognitive dissonance as well. How are we supposed to do that in two hours? Come join us to see what we can manage. It's bound to get lively!

Find some articles or links to help with the discussion if you like and feel free to post related articles in the comments section below.

If anybody can get there early, by around 8:45, I will definitely need help setting up tables and chairs. I'm not supposed to lift anything heavy right now. Much appreciated.

If you are interested, a group of us like to go out to lunch afterward. We will wrap up the meeting around noon so you just might be hungry by then.

Hosted by Richard Dewey the first Saturday of each month.
