NTCOF's April service took place on the 2nd. We had a Moment of Science about micrometeorites. And a mention of the upcoming total eclipse of the Sun on August 21st of this year. Here in the DFW area we will see it as partial eclipse but only a few hours north of us is the path of totality! We then considered the question of WHY BE REASONABLE? It is an important subject for anyone interested in the truth, philosophy and religion. We had discussion about the various ways that thinkers have come at this problem and how it can ultimately be seen as a matter of right and wrong, a moral question.
More about the April 2017 service and other past services HERE in our forum.
Next month's service will be on May 7th. We plan then to consider the subject of MIRACLES. Just what are they, anyway? If they are anything that seems wondrous then they could include almost anything. And what, if anything, is proved my miracles? Even many believers say that they should not be the basis of religious belief. As usual, we'll talk about other things as well. It will be fun! As we have been and plan to for the rest of 2017, we will meet at the Comfort Inn DFW Airport North. The service starts at 10:30 sharp but come early as most of us do for coffee (and usually snacks — you can bring some!) and conversation.
Have kids? Bring them too as we offer free childcare and "Sunday School" which is aimed at helping our younger Freethinkers cope with the challenges of growing up by learning to ask questions instead of just being spoon-fed "the answers." If they're too young for that, we'll look after and entertain them. We want them to have fun too! Children of all ages need to learn that Freethinking is exciting, important, and absolutely "normal." In fact, Freethought is extraordinary!
