January 6th, 2008; 10:30 a.m. (Come early for fellowship and coffee.) - Roundtable Sunday: "Freethought Communities and Resources" - Carl Westman, Discussion Leader - Pellissippi State Technical Community College
Being part of a community that shares your values can be a great source of emotional support and intellectual stimulation. For many, RET serves in that capacity, but it only meets 3 times a month for two hours each time. Are there other freethought communities to which you belong, that either meet in person or online? Do you subscribe to certain freethought publications that have enriched your understanding of the world, or helped you become part of a larger group that hopes to make a positive difference? Come and share with us some of your favorite freethought groups and resources, and why you enjoy them.
Carl Westman will lead the discussion, and share with the group excerpts from The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe (SGU), a weekly podcast on science and skepticism. Fun fact: former RET President Massimo Pigliucci had the honor of being the first interviewee for the SGU podcast (June 7, 2005, episode 3). More information about SGU can be found at:
