How did you hear about us?

Internet search

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

Friendships with likeminded people.

How do you go about knowing something is true?

You can't know if anything is true for certain. You can gather and weigh evidence and make approximations to get ever closer to the truth. I believe in studying human irrationality, understanding our blind-spots, so we can better compensate for them. Because of human irrationality and different interpretations of what is important, people can look at the same body of evidence and come away with very different interpretations. I try to approach life with an open mind, a willingness to accept that I may he wrong. I want to find people who will challenge me to consider things I have not thought of before, and who will try to understand where I am coming from as I try to understand where they are coming from.


I am a stay-at-home-mom, run a hobby farm, and was raised Mormon. Now that I have become disillusioned with religion in general, I am interested in meeting people who believe in art, learning, beauty, and kindness without the baggage of religion.

What Mary Cate B. is saying about this Meetup Group
