Our purpose is to discuss issues connected with science, religion, spirituality and community (without superstition, without "revelation") - above all, issues connected with the changing human condition in the world as we now understand it.

As traditional, religious world views have been progressively challenged and replaced by a modern, scientific understanding, societies, cultures and human identities have found themselves under stress -- like a stomach that has swallowed food it is unable to digest.

Presentations on relevant topics, followed by a question-and-answer period and then by an open, moderated discussion will be arranged and given about once a month.
