What we're about

A safe, friendly, civil, respectful space to share ideas, including rational criticism about your and our most sacred cows. We want honest, reasonable conversations about tough topics without any attacks on our participants. Again, attack ideas, not our members.

We are brave explorers of ideas!

Our policy will just be the Reddit one:

"As a reminder, this [Memphis Freethought Collective] is a civil discussion.

In general, be courteous to others. Attack ideas, not users. Personal insults, shill or troll accusations, hate speech, any advocating or wishing death/physical harm, and other rule violations can result in a permanent ban.

If you see comments in violation to our rules, please report them." (Quoted from Reddit)

Ockham's Hot Topics (Small Group Discussion)

Riveroaks Reformed Presbyterian Church

We select a hot, controversial, interesting topic to discuss, civilly! What is our human nature(s)? Do human beings have a predominantly inherent nature to either do good or evil? And is society the counterbalance to humankind’s inherent nature (by tempting good humans to sin, or by keeping their inherent evil in check)?
