How did you hear about us?

Via ThinkAtheist I think.

What would you like a community like ours to provide for you ideally?

I have stood alone for a very long time. It is not easy being iconoclast, puckish, and mostly honest. I tend to look for folks that are kind, kindly-critical, open, well read, with a sense of deep humor, and are 'real'.

How do you go about knowing something is true?

LOTS of experience, something that survives critical thinking & good questions. I am a little concerned about the concept of 'true'. I figure that I am always just trying to 'catch up' with nature and culture. My tools seem rather blunt at times, and 'culture' seems made up of so many seductions, addictions, and patches. Finding 'the signal' of what is 'true', could be a life time task. Pretending to know what is 'true' could place each of us into a deep confrontation with 'honesty'.


Ex-Catholic, post-Modernist, recovering rationalist. Mostly just trying to lots of very nice days.

What James C. is saying about this Meetup Group

A pleasure to be with, sadly I must work on my modesty to enter conversations..;p)
