Seeker of Truth? Critical thinker? Weary of persistent religious dogma? Come join the FROGs! We will “ribbit” contemporary issues with Reason, share philosophical ideas, search for the Truth, and solve problems with evidence, logic, and our combined brains. Issues for this session include 1) the value of manners in a time of disintegrating mores and behavior, 2) the implications of technology on the idea and practice of friendship, and 3) “grab bag” (topic decided by us FROGs at the session). This group is moderated, has simple rules, and all will have the chance to be heard. Meeting location may eventually rotate to various locations. For now, you may have to make the arduous, treacherous, and virtually impassable trek to Mosier Company (a.k.a. MOCO) which is only (by car) 10 minutes from Hood River and 15 minutes from The Dalles. Can you somehow survive this odyssey in order to attend? It’s tough to gather up FROGs; they jump all over the place! 😉 An additional hosted social of (relatively quiet) FROGs happens the same night during “Philosophy Talk” on OPB radio 10:00-11:00pm.
“Freethinkers” (symbolized by the pansy flower) have officially been around since the 17th century. But there have always been those who question religion and other powerful authorities. Come help form this important group of thinkers in its (local) infancy. At the very least, you may be breaking the chains of isolation and meeting and interacting with some very smart human beings in 4-D!
R.S.V.P. (<–this means “please call or text ahead of time”) to 541-806-0090. And look for the FROGs at one of the tables. 🙂
