4 Skeptics Events Discuss the Big Questions of Life
One of the largest and fastest-growing groups in the Unites States are the religiously unaffiliated. Simply put, these folks do not align with any particular religious group, though many consider themselves to be spiritual. Among the religiously unaffiliated are folks whose views cover a broad spectrum of belief and non-belief when considering the question of God and the central claims of the Christian faith.
4 Skeptics events will be evenings dedicated to (1) seeking answers to the big questions of life, and (2) examining the essential claims of biblical Christianity.
It is our belief that there is healthy skepticism is a good thing. The group is open to skeptics and intended for skeptics and to be populated by skeptics. We will dedicate each evening to one question, then consider the evidence to support the proposed answers.
In the end, our desire is to know the truth and to live by its implications.
