Think and Drink - The Skeptic's Cocktail Hour

  • When: Wednesday, October 01, 2014 @ 6:00 pm
  • Treo, 3835 Tulane Ave, New Orleans, view map

We've been asked every now and then to have a cocktail event to change things up and give people more of a chance to mingle (which you can't do easily at restaurants, of course.)

Treo is a new place on Tulane Avenue that is doing some interesting things with drinks and small plates, so we thought it might be fun to be up on the trendy places.

See Calendar for more information.



  • When: Friday, October 24, 2014 @ 8:00 pm
  • Mid-City Theatre, 3540 Toulouse Street, New Orleans, LA view map

A little something for the Trekkie in all of us!

Power up the warp drive, set your phasers to stun and prepare to boldly go where no audience, or cast, has gone before as Mid-City Theatre presents "Trek-A-Go-Go", the show where the audience sits in the Captain's chair.

Episode titles and characters of Star Trek: The Original Series are drawn randomly out of a hat, as are the names of our cast members,  guaranteeing every performance will be something completely and totally different.

This is a ticketed event and there are other dates available. Scroll down the list to find the best one for you. Click here to purchase tickets.

What is Humanism?

Humanists reject superstitious beliefs.

Instead, we can make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared values.

We can make the best of life by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves, and choosing to take responsibility for our actions.

It is important to act morally towards others, not because of a divine imperative, but because people have inherent dignity.

We have only one life, it is our responsibility to make it a good life, and to live it well.

Famous Quotes

In some awful, strange, paradoxical way, atheists tend to take religion more seriously than the practitioners. - Jonathon Miller
