Here’s a quick plug for Lichfield, Walsall and South Staffordshire Humanists – a philosophical debating group – who have their quarterly meeting this Wednesday 15th April 2020 at your home! They are trying this time, since Coronavirus restrictions mean they can’t meet in the usual pub, a videoconference on Zoom instead.
The meeting kicks off at 7:45pm and goes on until about 9:45pm.
Old pal of the blog, Charles Street let me know about the group and their meeting schedule a while back, and this video meet-up looks like fun! Also don’t forget the fact that’s it’s completely free to attend.
If you’re interested in philosophy, the nature of what we believe and accept, this could be a great evening with like minded people. Without leaving your house!
Quite clearly we will not be meeting at our usual venue for our April meeting.
So we are going to try a Zoom Video Conference. I am advised with the system that we have that we can have a meeting for up to 100 for 40 minutes. How we will cope is anyone’s guess. Sometimes the system allows a first meeting to continue past the time. However the other option is to schedule another meeting immediately afterwards.
So here is the plan.
We will meet at 7:45 pm British Summer Time. Wednesday 15th April. I mention BST in case, this time, any of our overseas friends choose to join us.
Then at 8:35 we will schedule another meeting and continue.
If you want to participate, if you haven’t already done so, please download the Zoom Communications app. Then please reply to this email so we know who to send invites to with the relevant entry code and password. If there are any topics that anyone would like to discuss please mention that too.
The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
What could possibly go wrong?
If this works, at this time, we might even meet more often given we have zero traveling time.

Humanism is a comprehensive life stance that upholds human reason, ethics, and justice, and rejects supernaturalism, pseudoscience, and superstition.

If you tune in to the meeting please drop me the word and tell me how you got on – the Humanists have a whole bunch of stuff going on and their website above is worth a look: I’ve always been a big fan of Birmingham Sceptics in the Pub who post some very interesting, thought provoking stuff on social media.
