I’m one of the organizers of the Houston Skeptic Society, the local critical thinking group in my town, and I have decided to put together a discussion roundtable for our members.
The idea is, unlike the Skeptics in the Pub gatherings where the topic of discussion can change from minute to minute, the discussion group would focus on a single topic for the entire evening; one that everyone involved would have the opportunity to research and/or think about beforehand.
Now, I have a few topic ideas in mind for the group to explore once I get a time and a location locked down, but I thought it might be interesting to open the floor to you all, and see what topics you enjoy discussing, or that you are simply curious about.
So feel free to list your favorites in the comments. And feel free to discuss them there, if you wish.
What topic(s) would you like most to discuss in a roundtable format? Do you participate in anything similar in your area? How does it work? Who is invited? Do you have a moderator type person? Do you serve sandwiches? Finish with a Conga line? Any secret handshakes or passwords?
