• Secular Humanist Outreach in Balboa Park

    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.

  • August Book Discussion: "The Hamilton Affair" by Elizabeth Cobbs

    Join us for a delicious French brunch or lunch at Arely's French Bakery and a stimulating discussion of "The Hamilton Affair," one of the best historical fiction books of recent years. This is for all of you who can't afford $300 tickets to the "Hamilton" play! :-) A New York Times Bestseller and one of the best historical fiction books of 2016 and 2017! “. A juicy answer to Ron Chernow's Alexander Hamilton…” --Cosmopolitan. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the American Revolution, and featuring a cast of legendary characters, "The Hamilton Affair" tells the sweeping, tumultuous, true story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler, from passionate and tender beginnings of their romance to his fateful duel on the banks of the Hudson River. Hamilton was a bastard and orphan, raised in the Caribbean and desperate for legitimacy, who became one of the American Revolution's most dashing--and improbable--heroes. Admired by George Washington, scorned by Thomas Jefferson, Hamilton was a lightning rod: the most controversial leader of the new nation. Elizabeth was the wealthy, beautiful, adventurous daughter of the respectable Schuyler clan--and a pioneering advocate for women. Together, the unlikely couple braved the dangers of war, the perils of seduction, the anguish of infidelity, and the scourge of partisanship that menaced their family and the country itself. With flawless writing, brilliantly drawn characters, and epic scope, "The Hamilton Affair" tells a story of love forged in revolution and tested by the bitter strife of young America, and will take its place among the greatest novels of American history ever written.
