Brunching Skeptically: 8/2/2015 at Schenley Plaza


Where: Schenley Plaza (4100 Forbes Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213)

When: 8/2/2015

RSVP at: http://www.meetup.com/Steel-City-Skeptics/events/224197160/

Come meet some like-minded folks of all ages and have a great brunch at the same time. This month, we are doing an outdoor meetup in Schenley Plaza in the heart of Oakland.  We will meet under the big tent.  There is no set topic or fix agenda, but rather the opportunity to engage in  a free-flowing discussion on issues of the day.

Before joining the group, you should buy your brunch at one of the local vendors in the plaza (or bring your own).  Recommended are the Conflict Kitchen, which only serves cuisine from countries with which the United States is in conflict (Iran, Afghanistan, Cuba, etc) or Waffalonia.  There is also Asia Tea House or Opa Gyros.  You could also consider carry-out from The Porch, but the wait would be a little longer.  See menus for the Kiosks at http://www.pittsburgh….

Brunching Skeptically is brought to you by the Steel City Skeptics, which is part of the Pittsburgh Coalition of Reason. For more information on these groups or our other events, go to: http://unitedcor.org/…

Science and Skeptics Book Group: Mother Nature Is Trying to Kill You. Dan Riskin: 2PM TODAY at Schenley Park Café and Visitor Center


Where: Schenley Park Café and Visitor Center (101 Panther Hollow Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15213)

When: 2PM TODAY

RSVP at: http://www.meetup.com/Steel-City-Skeptics/events/223748382/

Mother Nature is Trying to Kill You: A Lively Tour Through the Dark Side of the Natural World. Dan Riskin, Ph.D. This is a short book that reveals the fascinating, weird, and often perverted ways that Mother Nature fends only for herself. Riskin uses theology’s seven deadly sins of man: greed, laziness, gluttony, envy, wrath, and pride as chapters of this book. One reviewer’s comment: great book, humorous, a quick read, and it’ll tweak your world view.

The library has five copies. You also can get it from Amazon for as low as $3.69 plus shipping.

CFI Monthly Lecture Meeting!: 7PM TODAY at First Unitarian Church


Where: First Unitarian Church (605 Morewood Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213)

When: 7PM TODAY

RSVP at: http://www.meetup.com/Pittsburgh-Secular-Freethinkers/events/223649403/

Pittsburgh Secular Freethinkers (CFI)

Welcome to CFI’s monthly lecture night series!

For those wanting a more activist secular community, we have a special treat this month. Our guest speaker is Kelly Damerow, the acting Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America (CFI is a member of the SCA). She will talk about the current legislative issues that the SCA is working on and what we, as ordinary citizens, can do to help the cause. Current issues include promoting rational evidence-based policy decisions and eliminating religious/philosophical exemptions to vaccines, among many others.

Each month (with the exception of August and December) we feature a presentation/lecture on a variety of topics.  Our primary focus is on science, but we also have talks on skepticism and humanism and beyond.  We try to structure the meetings to begin with a presentation that leaves time for great discussions and Q&A sessions afterward. We try to post the topic and speaker bio as soon as that information is known — please check back soon. If you have speaker suggestions and/or ideas that are in keeping with our mission, please feel free to email your suggestions to pgh@centerforinquiry.net

See you there!

P.S.  We usually head to Ali Baba’s on nearby Craig Street at 5:30 p.m. for a pre-lecture or pre-movie dinner. Please leave a comment below if you are coming to dinner so we can include you in the reservation. Thanks!

Drinking Skeptically: 7PM TODAY at Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh


Where: Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh (2705 South Water Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15203)

When: 7PM TODAY

RSVP at: http://www.meetup.com/Steel-City-Skeptics/events/221462143/

Drinking Skeptically is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship and networking among skeptics, atheists, humanists, critical-thinkers, and like-minded individuals. There is no specific topic. It is just an open discussion among fellow freethinkers about science, religion, skepticism, beer, life and leisure. Both teetotalers and those who imbibe moderately are equally welcomed. We generally meet the third or fourth Friday of each month, skipping August and December. 

We will return our favorite summer location at the Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh.  Go through the restaurant, out the back and down the stairs to the Beer Garden along the river.  Look for Drinking Skeptically signs on the tables.

We start gathering at 7 pm, but latecomers are more than welcome. Hope to see you on Friday night!
