We held our second Secular Action Social on Saturday. A group of our top 10 supporters were invited. Everyone had the chance to get to know each other to expand our secular networks, as well as having 15 minutes to share an interesting topic about secularism with the rest of the group. It ended up being like a mini TED; with topics including:
The nature of time itself, with a corollary discussion of Hawking’s Brief History of Time
Progress on projects such as the Refusing My Religion documentary
Atheist communities, like the lesser known /r/TrueAtheism community
The nature of consciousness — how one might define individual identity in relation to consciousness
It was a fantastic evening and we’re looking forward to many more.
