CFI-Harlem Division

CFI-Harlem is a local discussion group of the Center for Inquiry in New York City. CFI-Harlem offers an opportunity to put your principles into practice by joining other rationalists and freethinkers to work for positive change in society. We organize a monthly meeting and occasional intellectual programming.

Monthly discussions are on the next-to-last Saturday of every month. Meetings run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Suggested topics for September:

1. How far will people go in letting go of belief once they are given a set of facts or will they hang on to the belief. 

2. Issues with Revelations: 666 the number of the beast refers to emperor Nero, when his name is translated from Greek to Hebrew.

3. Top 10 Reasons Why Beer Is Better Than Jesus:

10. No one will kill you for not drinking Beer.

9. Beer doesn't tell you how to have sex.

8. Beer has never caused a major war.

7. They don't force Beer on minors who can't think for themselves.

6. When you have a Beer, you don't knock on people's doors trying to give it away.

5. Nobody's ever been burned at the stake, hanged, or tortured over his brand of Beer.

4. You don't have to wait 2000+ years for a second Beer.

3. There are laws saying Beer labels can't lie to you.

2. You can prove you have a Beer.

1. If you've devoted your life to Beer, there are groups to help you stop.

Let's find some more.

      Continuing: scroll down to "Wealth". I could support, with few reservation, what you will find. But do these teachings seem like Christians to you? especially Republican Christians?

      Yen,
      If you liked that one you may want to have a look at “When JC Returns” in “Kouken”
      There are several other things in Kouken that you should find worthwhile: “Epiphany”, “Unexamined Belief”, “Understanding the Culture of Life”, “Intelligent? Design?”, “Are We Alone?”, a very short amusing piece “Modern Physics” and more.
      If you send me an e-mail ([masked]) I will reply with a PDF file attachment of Kouken.
      Cheers,
      GB

    Yes, but never exactly; examples:
    1. For 90 years we've frequently elected Republican presidents; usually (not always) the results were bad or terrible.
    2. Fanatics (religious or political) cause misery & chaos, but we follow them.
    3. Etcetera.

      20 And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I stood there giving my approval and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.'

    Bill Carter,

    Saul alias Paul was there at Stephen's stoning! Read Acts chapter 22 especially verse 20.

      I must always add so Luke csays when he wrote the book of Acts!

    A good meaning as usual. While we may not all agree on details we can discuss our differences calmly and rationally.

  • William C.

    No one will kill you if you change your brand of beer or if you drink wine.

    Do you believe in the famous George Santayana quote "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"? If so how do you demonstrate it?

    1 · September 12, 2013

    • Yen

      What do you mean by "If so how do you demonstrate it?"

      September 14, 2013

    • Baldwin

      Its self evident! Either you commit to it or you give lip service!
