What we're about

Are you a science-based person? Are most of your beliefs and ideas based in science (rational, evidence-based)? Our discussions will be based on online articles, lectures, podcasts, and interviews. Most will have a straight-forward scientific theme, featuring some category of contemporary science. If there is any other type of source material, it would still have a firm grounding in science-based information and fact.

If you’re interested in joining, please be sure there's a recent photo of yourself.

* For any meeting of this group that you’d like to attend, please come prepared by reading or listening to the source material – this makes sure that people actually know something about the topic and helps to keep the conversation focused on the topic.

IF YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO READ OR LISTEN TO THE ARTICLE, LECTURE, OR PODCAST, PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE MEETING.

Thanks…

Michael
