If you’re a progressive humanist/atheist/agnostic/freethinker/(other label!) and want to enjoy the company of other free-thinkers, you are warmly invited to have lunch with us. We’ll talk about whatever interests us, make new friends and make sense together using rational discourse and wisdom garnered from our lives. Our purpose is social, our philosophy is skeptical humanist, and our politics are progressive. What is a Humanist? Read it here: https://americanhumanist.org/what-is-humanism/humanism-capital-h/ We support the Humanist Manifesto III. Read it here: https://americanhumanist.org/what-is-humanism/manifesto3/
Humanism - Informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion. Natural answers to natural questions
TOPICs : It's nice to have a topic or two to discuss as a starting point. Although impromptu subjects and general conversation are good too! This is a social conversation. Please write your suggestions in the comments. If we don't get to it this time, I'll collect them for later.

Closing The Book On god 📖

Link visible for attendees

Cross posted from our sister site "The Atheist Odyssey"

Come join us for a grand discussion on the failure of the arguments for god.
Let’s spend a Saturday afternoon for some in depth conversations regarding counter apologetics, philosophy, science, and the bible. Let’s shine a light on the epistemological dishonesty lurking within fundamentalist apologia and tactics while examining methods of effective communication.
Bring your knowledge and experiences, bring your favorite books, podcasts, videos and websites. Come to teach, come to learn or just come to listen and let’s write the last chapter on god.

-------------------- ATHEISM vs CREATIONISM in a nutshell --------------------

“In the beginning, god created the heavens and the earth.”
~ vs.
"In the beginning"... there was a quantum event which, in a microsecond, erupted into a Quark-Gluon plasma, creating the first matter of our universe. As this plasma expanded it coalesced into hadrons and protons then the forces of nature began to separate and atoms were formed into great clouds of hydrogen and helium that began to condense and rotate under their own gravity. Theses clouds became the first generation of stars and under the sheer magnitude of their masses, these giants erupted into supernovas creating new generations of clouds of heavier elements which again coalesced under gravity and... "created the heavens and the earth".

Saying god did it is so uninspired, so bland and vacant. The majesty and awe of the knowledge and understanding we have of the universe has emerged, not from the bible, not from god, but from the genius of humanity. In the very last moments of the 4 and a half billion year history of earth, humans have evolved... “ and for the last 100,000 years, we have looked up into that night sky and wondered at those awesome points of light, what are they, where did they come from... We are the first people in that long history not to wonder... not to guess... but to know... "
