  • Is religiosity innate to our human DNA? (Thursday, December 12, 2019)
    Virtually every culture/society in the history of mankind (and womankind) has or has had some form of theistic religion. This begs the question - Is religiosity or the need for religion something that is innate to our human DNA? Or is it a social construct that we have created to fulfill some other innate need or needs? Or is that the same thing? And can we fulfill those needs without the supernatural trappings? ------------------ PFC Monthly discussion groups are open to all - if the topic interests you, and you wish to engage in rational and/or evidence-based dialogue, you'll be welcome! Casual dress. Discussion is moderated but informal - speak up as much or little as you wish. Discussion topics are announced in advance of the event and are chosen for their controversy or differences of opinion around the subject.
  • Sunday Assembly's Yule Rock!! (Sunday, December 15, 2019)
    Yule Rock is the ultimate secular festive singalong where we come together to celebrate our lives, each other and the year that was. The end of the year is a time to embrace and appreciate one another. Join us for an amazing morning of singing, dancing, and community! What happens at an Assembly? Every third Sunday, we sing and dance. We also have a mind-stimulating lecture ranging from a number of topics from science to art to philosophy. After, we connect with our community over coffee and pastries. Our mission: to help everyone find and fulfill their full potential. Our vision: a secular congregation in every town, city, and village that wants one.
  • Festivus (Sunday, December 15, 2019)
    It is once again Winter Solstice time and that means it's time for all the various Solstice celebrations. And the non-believer community is no exception. We give you - Festivus!!! Each year we hold a traditional Festivus celebration - complete with Festivus pole, airing of grievances, along with contests of mental agility and feats of strength. It should be noted that last year's contests were both won by the same person. Anyone care to challenge that dominance? And in keeping with last year (not to mention our bar trivia team) there will also be a brief secular trivia contest - so invite your friends to form a team. We will also be raffling off some PFC swag as a fundraiser of sorts in addition to having it available for sale. Admission is only $20 per adult and $8 for children under 18 and over 5 years of age. Food will be provided and each adult of legal age will receive one ticket good for one free drink from the bar. The Pittsburgh Freethought Community will also be collecting for our first annual food drive at Festivus, donated non-perishable goods will go to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, or you can make donations here: https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/freethought-food-drive

  • The Meaning of Life: The Philosophical Isms (Thursday, December 19, 2019)
    What gives our lives meaning, given that we do not believe there is an omniscient force who provides meaning for us? When people lose their religious beliefs, they might fall into despair due to the lack of inherent meaning in the world…or they might party hearty. There are several philosophies which address this inherent meaninglessness. Existentialism posits that we can and must construct our own meaning. Nihilists maintain that it’s pointless to even try. Absurdism concludes that although a search for meaning is inherently in conflict with the actual lack of meaning, one should both accept this and simultaneously rebel against it by embracing what life has to offer. And there are other variations. For advice on how to be happy in a world without inherent purpose, try Epicureanism: Seek physical pleasure in moderation, avoid pain, find satisfying work, enjoy deep discussions (and make merry) with your friends, for tomorrow you must die…but also study and try to understand the world, and leave it better than it was when you found it. These videos are entertaining introductions to the subject matter, if you have time. What is Existentialism?

  • Monthly BOD or EXEC MTG 10a-12p // BOD=JAN/APR/JUL/OCT (Sunday, January 12, 2020)
  • Anti-Racism Workshop (Sunday, January 12, 2020)
    Many white people have a desire to eliminate racism but are frustrated by their apparent inability to do anything to reduce the corrosive effect of racism in our society.  We are horrified by a criminal justice system that severely punishes black people. We despair over an educational system that consigns black children to inadequate schools. We say we'd prefer to live in diverse neighborhoods, work in diverse settings, yet we perpetuate segregation in all aspects of our lives. Moreover, we are uncomfortable even discussing racism, afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing, or offending or being accused of being racist. We can choose a different path. Join with other anti-racist people to recognize white privilege, oppose racist policies, and create a better society, not just for the sake of fairness, but for our own survival. Individual Session syllabus to follow.

  • Anti-Racism Workshop (Sunday, March 22, 2020)
    Many white people have a desire to eliminate racism but are frustrated by their apparent inability to do anything to reduce the corrosive effect of racism in our society.  We are horrified by a criminal justice system that severely punishes black people. We despair over an educational system that consigns black children to inadequate schools. We say we'd prefer to live in diverse neighborhoods, work in diverse settings, yet we perpetuate segregation in all aspects of our lives. Moreover, we are uncomfortable even discussing racism, afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing, or offending or being accused of being racist. We can choose a different path. Join with other anti-racist people to recognize white privilege, oppose racist policies, and create a better society, not just for the sake of fairness, but for our own survival. Individual Session syllabus to follow.

  • World Science Day (Tuesday, November 10, 2020)
    World Science Day for Peace and Development is an international day that highlights the important role that science has in society and is celebrated each year on November 10. It also highlights the need to engage the wider public in debates on emerging scientific issues. World Science Day was proclaimed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2001 and celebrated for the first time in 2002.By linking science more closely with society, World Science Day aims to ensure that citizens are kept informed of developments in science. It also underscores the role scientists play in broadening our understanding of the planet we call home and in making our societies more sustainable.The objectives of World Science Day for Peace and Development are to:Strengthen public awareness on the role of science for peaceful and sustainable societies;Promote national and international solidarity for shared science between countries;Renew national and international commitment for the use of science for the benefit of societies;Draw attention to the challenges faced by science and raising support for the scientific endeavour.Individuals and institutions around the world are encouraged to organize an event or activity on World Science Day, including government officials, students, the media and school pupils. World Science Day for Peace and Development has generated many concrete projects, programmes and funding for science around the world. It has also helped foster cooperation between scientists living in regions marred by conflict, one example being the UNESCO-supported creation of the Israeli-Palestinian Science Organization (IPSO).
