August Movie Discussion - The invention of Lying

Let's answer the question, "What would you do if you were the only person that could lie and everyone else believed you?"

Please watch the movie before the meeting. It can be found on Amazon or YouTube (must pay) for about $3.

Meeting will be hosted by Sue Mundo. She is new to the area and our group. What better way to get to know everyone then by hosting an event.

Join us for a lively discussion that should be PG-13 but you never know with our group.

Tuesday, August 18th

3rd Tuesday of the month, Sue’s RFR meetup

From our new member Sue:

I'm hosting a brand new Recovering From Religion Philly Support Group on Zoom on 3rd Tuesdays of each month. I'm hoping you'd be willing to post a link to it on your website. We will not be competing with each other: This is strictly a support group for those in transition out of religion, and will not serve as a typical humanist or secular group. We only discuss our own personal stories.

I will also be promoting your group, as well. Here is the link: https://www.meetup.com/RfR-Philadelphia-PA/­

General Meeting with Paul Halpen speaking about his new book, Synchronicity

Guest speaker Paul Halpern will discuss his new book, Synchronicity: The Epic Quest to Understand the Quantum Nature of Cause and Effect

In Synchronicity, Paul tells the little-known story of the unlikely friendship between Nobel-prize-winning physicist Wolfgang Pauli and the great psychologist Carl Jung. Their long collaboration has been essential to some of the most important physics of the last 100 years.

Along the way, Paul explores the difference between scientific and pseudoscientific connections throughout history, showing how we must be careful to subject any purported link to scientific analysis. With quantum physics, it can be tricky, but possible.

The press release with more details can be found here:

His presentation will be about an hour. Afterwards, he will be available to answer questions.

A sweeping, wide-ranging collection, it presents an intimate and fascinating view of a life in science-a life like no other.
