Social Events

At our meeting in July it was decided to have a social meeting on 11 August in the bar at White Rock Hotel. We also appointed Duncan Cleverley as our Social Secretary (is that the right title?) to plan more such activities in future.

It was also proposed that a group of members should have an outing to the "Affectionate Tribute to Marlene Dietrich" to be held at Conway Hall in London on 7 September in support of the Secular Europe Campaign. I asked for those members who have bought a ticket to let me know, so that we can know how many are going, but the response so far has been minimal.

In was proposed that the talk by Stephen Milton on 8th September be postponed to October, but if interest in the Conway Hall trip is low, perhaps we should reinstate this. We can assess the situation on 11th August.

Our July Meeting: Cosmology and RE

A PDF poster is now available to download from HERE advertising our next meeting, which is at 6:30 pm on 14th July in the Notley Room at the White Rock Hotel.

The main subject is: Cosmology - Do We Need To Know How It All Began? In the absence of Prof. Stephen Hawking or Prof. Brian Cox this will be introduced by our Secretary, George Jelliss from a philosophical point of view: Could Everything come from Nothing? What is Time? In the Beginning was...?

In view of our failure to get representation on the East Sussex SACRE we will also devote some time to discuss what our attitude should be to Relgious Education. This video (see bottom of page) of a debate at UCL on 15 June is worth listening to in this connection.
