Thought I’d try to find non-religious people around northeast Ohio.  Moved here from California many years ago, and I was amazed at the quantity of churches… seems like one every block in some areas.  Didn’t figure there was any free thinkers in this state at all!

I’m hoping to find a local informal group just to be able to hang out with people who are like minded..  Perhaps discuss philosophy and morality in the absence of a magical being telling one what to do wink

Sadly I’m not seeing any regional forums here.

Welcome!

Well, at least if you can’t find anyone to communicate with in person, you can kick around ideas here. smile

Take care,

Derek

Happy to have you here.  As Harry said, we do discuss those ideas.  I realize an Internet forum isn’t as personal as a face-to-face one, but it’s better than nothing.  I’d guess that non-thieists are more likely to be in the closet in Ohio, but there may be some here who could direct you.

I believe CFI has an active community in northeast Ohio:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Michael’s quite right. Check up on the website; they might have some regional programming that interests you. Meanwhile you’re more than welcome to discuss non-magical-being-oriented philosophy and morality here on the Forum.

(We have some regional fora here, though they tend to get relatively limited participation).

Cheers,

Welcome.  Some states seem to be like that, but at least you can escape it here on this forum.  Hope you enjoy it here.  smile

Don’t know of anything personally, but Meetup.com has been pretty useful to me for finding groups.
