What we're about

For those of you not familiar with the term 'sapiophile' it simply means a person who is attracted to intelligence. So, if you enjoy intellectually stimulating conversation, possess an open mind, relish the presence of other like-minded individuals, then please join us. And keep in mind, we are here to learn from one another, to listen as well as share our words and experiences. I hope you are as fascinated as I am about the the things people think, do, and say. Keep in mind, intelligence is not about college degrees, positions, or place. One of my favorite quotes, which has been attributed to Mark Twain is, "I never let schooling interfere with my education." I find it particularly meaningful as I failed to finish high school and have had no formal education since. So, please don't let your lack of schooling hinder your attendance.

This July will mark our fourth year as a group. A lot of people have come and gone since 2015, while many of the original members are still participating. I believe our longevity can be attributed to our uniqueness and welcoming atmosphere. We always look forward to new members, finding a new perspective refreshing.

The goal of our little group has remained unchanged since its inception, to provide a safe and friendly place to freely discuss a wide variety of topics, to encourage growth and open-minded banter, to learn from another's experiences and knowledge. I would consider the group a success if only one person walked away in all this time questioning their confirmation bias. Sadly, it would appear the ability to use critical thinking is waning. Let's make an effort to turn that trend around, continue to question the mainstream narrative, pass on our knowledge and beliefs to those looking for more than what social media and television has to offer.
