Hey folks! It’s been a super super long time since we last posted, but we’re hoping to get the blog going on some sort of sporadic and/or semi-regular basis.
Seven of us are currently sitting in the campus center hanging out, being awesome, and theoretically writing blog posts in a three hour blogathon! We’re going to start updating on a regular basis, with a few posts from a few of the members who have joined – Katrina, Keith, and Leah – as well as a couple of other long-time folks! Hopefully their posts will be up soon as the first posts of a regular pattern, but before then , here’s a quick update on what we are going to be up to this week!
This Thursday at 9:00 p.m. (later than usual because of Tufts’ Thursday-as-a-Monday schedule) in Eaton 202, we are returning to a discussion topic on a theme that got many of us interested in freethinking and Freethought to begin with: religion. Specifically, our discussion is going to be about Pascal’s Wager and other arguments that often lead people to religion. It’s the first time in a while that we’re going to do a topic on religion, and while this week is going to be a broader topic about what drives people in society in general to be religious, next week is going to be a lot more personal: we are going to be doing a meeting to talk about our personal stories, but with a twist from how we usually do it. Keep your ears peeled for more news soon!
Friday at 7:00 we will (finally!) be watching District 9 in Pearson 106. Come for free food, an interesting movie, and a great discussion afterwards. Immediately after, we are heading over to Granoff 271 for a multihour jam session! Bring your instruments and board games and come hang out for a great time! Both are open to all even if you don’t normally attend our discussion meetings and we would love to have you!
Hope to see you all soon!
