Upcoming events (4+)

Logical Fallacy Clinic

Online event

We learn about and become proficient in identifying and navigating logical fallacies so we can be better, kinder, and gentler people with one another.

We do so also so we don't fall into the traps ourselves as well as become better communicators with each other.

Because of this, every year we explore the misuses and abuses of logic in our annual logical fallacy clinic.

For two hours (with one hour of spill over time for those compelled to stay--which is most of us) we will learn about and practice identifying logical fallacies.

Please sign up, share, invite your friends, and come! Even better to invite some of your friends and family that may need this more than you.

See you Sunday October 24th at 1pm PDT on zoom.

Analytical Día de los Muertos: Syncretism and how religion is a human invention

It's religion beyond superstition.

With Margaret Downey once again leading the wonderful Secular Día de los Muertos observance, we are compelled to examine syncretism.

Syncretism is a concept in which cultural components are grafted together to created a coming together of cultures. When one studies comparative religions, one sees a pedigree of a particular human design. This is not only packaged with sugar skulls, but with Santa Clause, Easter, the Book of Job, Islam itself, and also Sikhism.

Religion brings us many good, and quite often far more pernicious components, the credit and/or culpability can't be laid at the holographic feet of a divinity, but only we have ourselves to blame.

Religion also, is a beautiful lens in which we can gain a shorthand for the fantastic and fascinating idiosyncrasies long crafted and deeply embedded in different traditions, often greatly misunderstood by outsiders. We stand firmly committed to understand each other, and without a fervent endorsement, a scholarly approach to comparative religion helps build bridges between people and across gulfs in understanding.

Please register, share, and attend the Secular Day of the Dead
