Tonight, Saturday, 7 p.m. we are
watching funny and thoughtful comedy "Idiocracy" - this is a cross
organizational meetup of all Kansas City meetups, so you'll come across some
folks you've never met and this will be fun. Check out this weekend packed with
activities - lots of things including Midtown Breakfast with hosts of "Voice of
Reason", Science Book Club, Skeptical Religion group, Community of Reason,
Pumpkin Patch & Corn Maze
Tomorrow, Sunday 9 a.m. KCFreeThinkers are going to a Bible study of a
Presbyterian church to preach the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster,
Hannibal Lector and the Noodle Appendage. According to the pastor of this church
23 out of 35 last week's attendees of the Bible Study are praying for us and it
must be working - KCFreeThinkers.org calendar is filling up with activities and
bursting at the seams with programs. Their god Jesus must have a plan for us, so
we are taking the only true Gospel of FSM to the less fortunate, those who are
deceived by bad pasta and defective neuronal connections in their brains. Anyone
interested to attend it with us, please, contact [address removed] for location
and perhaps car pooling depending on your location.
Sunday 10 am is Skeptical Religion class, 11 a.m. is Science Book Club (I am coming to this one - Robert Sawyer's "FlashFoward" is an interesting science laden piece of Sci-Fi. I liked his trilogy "Neanderthal Parallax" which deals with quantum shift of time/space of consciousness. Will make for a good discussion)
Community of Reason - Sunday 1 p.m. - "The Fall of the Dutch Republic" - sounds interesting.
Heartland Humanists are having their Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze outing at 2 p.m. Sunday.
If anyone is interested to come and check out this "Near Death Experience"
group meeting http://neardeathexp.meetup.com/5/
tomorrow Sunday, Oct 19th 1. p.m. please e-mail me at [address removed] so we can
get together. Last week Cole and I attended another "spiritual/mystical" group
and it was quite an event that we still are talking about.
Next Thursday 9:30 a.m. is Lutheran Bible Study group, Acts 16-19 will be
studies which contain quite a few Hannibal Lector moments. This is the same
church which KCFreeThinkers visited for the environmental group last week and
this past Thursday the Bible class where a Lutheran said he was going to kill me
if god told him to do so though "Thou shall not kill" is a commandment given to
him by the same god apparently. It did not matter to this person if he was
hallucinating, or it was Satan who could have disguised as Jesus or it was
someone in the costume. This person did not have a notion that the mere
appearance of someone named Jesus doesn't mean necessarily it is Jesus himself.
There has to be a validation of that and he would hear no more of that. Next
Thursday I intend to announce to the Lutheran group I am Jesus myself and I am
here to order this person to kill the person sitting next to him and we'll see
what he does. I am bringing my laptop with built in camera to record this epic
event on video. I will post it to YouTube
for those who would like to feel safe and make sure that this Lutheran doesn't
go crazy. I wonder how is he going to kill the person sitting next to him - with
hands or with the chair or a coffee jar? I think that the police would be very
interested to see how it all unfolded.
Anyone interested to watch it in real life, please, let me know at [address removed].
Next week we've got a couple of
Tue/Thursday meetups across town at 7
p.m., Wed 7 p.m. bar hopping in Westport (contact me at [address removed] if you are
interested so we know how many are coming and let you know where we'll meet and
how many cabs/cars/designated drivers to plan for.
Thursday is a meetup of a Philosophy Group "Atheism or Theism?" 6:30 p.m. (not regular 7 p.m. as this is not our
meetup)- , so this seems to be a pretty interesting one too.
Friday is Science Movie Night "Humans 2.0 - Creating Gods" BBC Documentary
about singularity/merger of humans and machines and then comes another weekend
packed with more freethinking events.
Next week, Paul Donovan, a teacher at KCK school will be presenting at
Community of Reason Sunday, Oct 26 1 p.m. about his experience as teacher and
also talk about his book "Happily Godless". Paul is active in the Science Book
Club and is a cool dude all around. Have I mentioned he is an atheist? :o)
Then after Paul's Community of Reason presentation is a cross
organizational meetup of all meetups in KC at Planet Sub on the Plaza - 3:30
p.m. Sunday, Oct 26. This is always fun, rowdy and informative! Don't miss
