“The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder.”
A NEW KIND OF ATHEIST GROUP — When atheists confront religion, supernatural beliefs, or pseudoscience we call it skepticism. However, to invest our energies in fighting against obvious falsehoods is to “let our enemies run our lives.” When atheists focus instead on positive moral actions we call it humanism—but in practice humanists mainly fight the negative. In contrast, when atheists focus on the natural world we call it wonderment.
Meetings are in downtown Vancouver. The format is talks given by members (or book readings or video screenings) with lively discussion and a post-meetup social. Read the blog (http://hereinspace.com/tags/friends-wonderment) on some of our past talks.
