Our monthly Freethinkers Fika is a small, friendly social gathering for humanists, atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers to engage in free discussion with like-minded others in a coffee-shop atmosphere. Secular Humanism is a philosophy that seeks to make sense of the world using science, reason, and shared values; we reject attempts to explain the world in supernatural terms. This philosophy forms the basis for our affiliation in NOSHA, and thus will necessarily inform the perspective from which topics are discussed. The Fika is not a formal moderated discussion or debate; attendees can raise whatever issues they wish to discuss. The only requirement is that we all treat each other with courtesy and respect, even if disagreements arise. We do want to include everyone who wishes to speak in our discussions, so individuals are discouraged from dominating conversation to the exclusion of others. Attacks or proselytization will not be permitted. We hold this event in a small private room, which means space is limited. Therefore, we ask that you be serious with your RSVP, and update it on Meetup if your attendance status changes.
One of our favorite locations with easy and ample parking and you pay up front, so so worrying about the bill. You can check out the menu here: http://centralcitybbq.com/menu/ *** As a courtesy to the restaurant and the other attendees, please update your status if something changes and you or your guest cannot attend (so we don't look like fools to the restaurant staff for asking them to set up for 20 when only 12 show up!) We send out a reminder before these events, so please don't ignore it. If you can't attend, just mark yourself as "Not Going" so another person can take your place. ***

We haven't held our Group Discussion program in a long while, so we're overdue for this fun and informative event! It's one of our most popular themes which allows everyone to have direct conversations and learn about the opinions and perspectives of your friends at NOSHA. Questions and topics will be determined and posted at a later date.
This is a popular annual event for the NOSHA community and who can't use a good walk with friends for a very good cause? We will set up a team page where you can sign up and/or donate to our group soon.
