What we're about

The Coalition provides notice of many relevant Meetups. Browse these pages for many more.

A coalition of over 12 organizations focused on the challenges of the human future. We meet regularly within the organizations and sporadically unite to bring distinguished leaders to discuss new propositions about life and review our current situation involving social, philosophical, environmental, and political concerns. We tend to have a strong bias toward humanistic solutions to the great changes we anticipate over the next decades. But we welcome all serious thinking on any matter, without regard to its philosophical direction.

Port Richey atheist meetup

Books-a-Million

Although random chit chat is always a pleasant way to spend the evening, one of our attendees said he knows of some interesting biblical contradictions that might make for a fun topic. What do you think? Know of any interesting biblical errors/contradictions you'd like to share? I know I have some favorites. As always, any atheist/agnostic/freethinker/rationalist/methodological naturalist/secular humanist or, what the heck, any atheist friendly folks are welcome - we just ask that people not come to preach or proselytize - aside from that, all are welcome! Since we're taking up table space at the coffee shop there, please consider patronizing their establishment with a purchase. Hope to see you there. Later, my fellow primates!
