Free Inquirer Discussion Group
Join us for April’s animated discussion at
11 am Saturday, April 12 at Tampa CFI Center

Our April moderator, Bernie Dwork, will lead us into the fascinating and powerful orations of Robert Green Ingersoll, America’s greatest public speaker of the Gilded Age. “[Ingersoll] was seen and heard by more human beings than any other American prior to the advent of motion pictures and radio.”

Bernie will ask “What’s the difference between Atheism and Agnosticism? What did those terms mean in the past? How can we clarify our use of language – do we say what we mean? Why should Ingersoll’s words matter to us?”

Hear part of the CD featuring two of Ingersoll’s classic works, performed by a noted Shakespearean actor. (The two CD set is available by special order through our bookstore for $30, prepaid. Contents: “Introduction”, “About the Holy Bible”, “Why am I an Agnostic?” Purchase benefits CFI Tampa and the Robert Green Ingersoll Memorial Committee.)

As always, other topics will be discussed.

CFI members’ Free Inquirers group enjoys freewheeling discussions and discovery. Differing points of view (can you defend your position?), new ideas, good humor (coffee and donuts?) make the gatherings both intellectually stimulating and good community bonding. The meeting often continues at a local eatery.
