• Secular Humanist Outreach in Balboa Park
    Please join us in our effort to reach out to nonbelievers, freethinkers, humanists and atheists in the San Diego community, and share all the wonderful social and educational opportunities that we provide. Rules: https://humanistfellowshipsandiego.org/events/humanist-outreach-rules This is very much a “3 Level Outreach” event. Participate at any level. No pressure. 1) Share camaraderie with your fellow non-believers. Come hang out with us on the grass behind the table and socialize. It’s a fun day in the park. Bring food/drinks/chairs if you like (certainly not required). Or just come visit. Stay five minutes, stay all day. Bring kids, bring partners. Everyone is welcome. 2) Staff the table. Again, there is no commitment to talk to believers. Our mission is outreach to the non-believing community. Passers-by are generally friendly and there will always be others around if non-believers want to engage in deeper conversation. 3) Ask an Atheist. For those who like to, and are willing (and there’s always a lot of us in this category), be ready to engage believers in discussion. This is a lot of fun for those who enjoy this kind of thing, and it’s good practice for your personal life, too! If you just want to come hang out, we’d love to have you, however long you want to stay. It’s fun to be out in the open as a non-believer, and the camaraderie and number of folks we have there give a very positive impression to all who walk by – even if many are just hanging out on the grass. For those willing to staff the table or talk to believers, we now have a good set of guidelines/suggestions for both. This helps us generate good will, stay positive and keep consistent. All members from SDCoR groups are welcome to join in. Everyone that does participate is encouraged to bring a chair, drinks and snacks (depending on how long they plan on joining in the fun). There are however great restaurants and cheap food, all within a rocks throw. A few of us often bring snacks, desserts and beverages for all to share and everyone is welcome to be so generous. Consider wearing your favorite anti-theistic or Humanist t-shirts and don't forget your Scarlet A lapel pins if you have them. We have received a very positive response from a surprising number of visitors. Other booths in the park include the Mormons, Hari Krishna, Christians, Muslims, evolution deniers and Jehovah's Witnesses. So the public is encouragingly receptive to our presence there among the others. However, please do not feel as though you must converse with the believers or even the non-believers in the public as many of us simply sit in the shaded grass behind the banner and enjoy good conversation with each other all day. Finally, no one is expected to be there all day. If you can only swing by and say hi, please do. We will be located on El Prado (the pedestrian avenue in-between the two large fountains in Balboa Park), near the lily pond.

  • November Book Discussion: "The Last Innocent Year: America in 1964"
    Please join us for a delicious lunch at Georgia's Greek Cuisine and a spirited discussion of "The Last Innocent Year: American in 1964 - The Beginning of the Sixties" by Jon Margolis. The year was 1964, John Kennedy was dead and the country was reeling from the aftermath of his assassination. The Warren Commission was sifting evidence. Lyndon Johnson was beginning to tear down Camelot to build the Great Society. Young men started burning draft cards. Rioting African Americans burned neighborhoods. The "conflict" in Vietnam was escalating and Jackie Kennedy was fast on her way to becoming an icon of dignified widowhood. The year 1964 was when the Beatles crossed the pond, Elizabeth Taylor dumped Eddie Fisher for Richard Burton, and the Beverly Hillbillies was all the rage on television. In "The Last Innocent Year," Jon Margolis weaves a narrative populated by some of the most dynamic figures of this century, from Robert Kennedy to Timothy Leary, from J. Edgar Hoover to Martin Luther King Jr. The result is a compelling chronicle of the events of 1964, the year that marked a watershed in American history.
