This event occurs on the Fourth Tuesday of each month except December.

We will be in Walt Whitman Room. Entrance is on 9th St SE. Elevator access available. Overflow room available in case of higher turnout to ensure all attendees receive adequate opportunities to participate.

Cafe Inquiry is our monthly casual get-together to meet people and discuss topics of science and humanism.

This month's discussion: What makes people more or less religious?

-Is religiosity primarily determined by the cultural milieu in which people have grown up?

-What personality traits lead toward people rejecting religion?

-What personality traits lead people to embrace religion?

-What effect does exposure to other religions/other cultures have on being religious?

-What do you think induces some lifelong atheists to end up embracing religion?

-Is there an underlying philosophical difference between approaching life from a religious versus a nonreligious perspective? If so, does one’s personal philosophy affect whether a person is religious?

-What are the factors that are contributing to the overall decline in religiosity in the United States?

No outside food or drink allowed. Free and open to the public.

We are also planning to go out for food and/or drinks afterwards.
