Monthly Meeting July 25th 2012 -- "Is Religion Bad For The Planet? Religion, Environment, and the Cost to Human Freedom.”
The monthly meeting of the Freethinkers of Colorado Springs takes place on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm. July’s meeting will be on the 25th and is entitled “Is Religion Bad For The Planet? Religion, Environment, and the Cost to Human Freedom.”
Marc Praterelli, author and professor of psychology at CSU-Pueblo, will meet with the Freethinkers to discuss his research and projects on the implications of religion and Earth’s environment. Please click "Read more" for complete details ...
The meeting will take place at Big House Sports. The address is 2660 Vickers Drive in Colorado Springs; the building used to be called “Lynmar” and still has “Lynmar” painted on the side. It’s on the north side of Vickers between North Union Boulevard and North Academy Boulevard. From the intersection of Vickers and Union, travel west on Vickers for about 2/10 mile and the building will be on your right; the entrance to the parking areas is just past the building itself. From the intersection of Academy and Vickers, travel east on Vickers for about 4/10 mile and the building will be on your left; the entrance to the parking areas is just before the building itself. There are four parking areas: directly in front of the building, to its left, a small area directly behind the building, and another, much larger area just beyond the small area behind the building. The areas in front, to the side, and directly behind the building are often full, so it’s recommended that you park in the larger area behind the building; you’ll need only to climb up a short staircase and you can enter the building at the rear through the glass doors. Take an immediate right, walk down the hall and up to the second floor, and enter the door marked “Sneakers Bar & Grill.” A door to the right leads to the room in which the meeting will be held; a door to the left leads to a snack bar. Several Freethinkers are planning to meet at 6:00 pm, an hour before the meeting, in the snack bar — you’re cordially invited to join them. If all those stairs might be difficult for you to navigate, the parking area in front of the building is on the same level as the building’s upper level, so if you enter at the front, you need only walk past the reception desk, through a glass door, and you’ll see “Sneakers Bar & Grill” to your left. There are two “handicapped” parking spaces in the front parking lot.
Don’t miss “Is Religion Bad For The Planet? Religion, Environment, and the Cost to Human Freedom.” Once again, that’s Wednesday, July 25th, at 7:00 pm. Please join us for this fascinating discussion; everyone’s invited and admission is free!
