Presentation on Compassion

A few weeks ago I gave a talk at the Houston Church of Freethought. The subject was on "Freethought and Compassion". Finally, I have gotten around to editing the presentation into a presentable essay in print, formatting it, and noting references. If anyone would like to read it, it can be found on my philosophy site, or by clicking HERE.

Where is "here"? Houston area has a very lively nontheist community, including the HCOF, "the Humanists of Houston" (HOH), the "Humanists of Montgomery County", the "Houston Atheist Society" (HAS), and the "Secular Students of Rice University". A lot of them interact with one another extensively through the "Houston Freethought Alliance".

Northern California. Lots of Christian & Catholic churches around here. I've yet to see any kind of Humanist group or building advertising meetings of that sort, unfortunately. I'd go!

Remember, many of these groups are small so if you think a group isn't quite as you like it, you can play an active role in helping to shape it. Also, if there's not one in your area, the AHA or CSH are pretty helpful to those wishing to start a group. It could be something as informal as a monthly get-together in a public place (bookstores, cafes, libraries, etc).

Thanks for those! :) Most of them are an hour away, but I'll save the links anyway. I think I'd prefer something 'humanist' to Atheist.
