Does an evidence based, skeptical world view lead to a cynical world view, or can we find optimism without gods or theology?
We'll discuss this and related questions: How do our belief systems shape our perceptions and interactions with others? How do we react to other belief systems? Do we feel compelled to shout them down? How comfortable are we in acknowledging and respecting that they may have different aims? How do we practice tolerance across fundamental disagreements? Do skeptical world views tend to intolerance as do some religious world views?
