You do not need to watch the three video links nor have viewed the earth temperature chart to participate in discussion.

Our discussion will broaden out to any timely topic that is on each of our mind. Starter topics are just an ice breaker. Those who have watched the videos or read the book will have the first shot in starting our conversation.

We currently meet at the Cordata Community Food Coop, Cordata, near Whatcom Community College on the first Friday of each month. You will find the stairs to the 2nd Floor "Local Roots" room on the SE corner of the store near the last register next to the deli area. At the top of stairs, turn right into the room.

Enjoy free flowing discussion on Politics, Religion, Science, Ethics, and any other controversial subject that comes to mind. We also encourage attendees to share their life story that lead their journey to the 'Land of Freethought', Free Inquiry, Skepticism towards cultural stories, norms & traditions and to the admiration of the scientific method as the only reliable means of finding answers to our probing questions and common sense solutions to humanity's current problems.

Suggestions for future meeting's starter topics are encouraged.

See you there!
