Fertile Ground

I'm going to try to pull an August. I'll explain later. From what I can tell, there really arn't any big atheist/agnostic/etc communities in Pittsburgh. There used to be several groups, some associated with the University of Pittsburgh, some with CMU, and their remains are scattered through old webpages and stuff, but all I see now is a Humanist Community. I called them up, and they're actually meeting tonight in a Unitarian church. They meet once a month, have no discussion list, and are fairly small. I'd love to see what can be done around here with all the atheists/agnostics/etc that googling has revealed on Pitt and CMU campuses. Maybe I'll start a group, maybe I'll revive one or try to take up a leadership position in one. To explain my earlier comment, August Brunsman, a friend from Columbus, started a group called Students for Freethought, which met on the Ohio State campus. It was really neat, and it attracted a large number of really interesting people. So... I'm going to tonight's meeting, and to the planning meeting afterwards, and after making sure I'm not stepping on anyone's toes, I'm going to see if I can do what August did -- bootstrap a community of sciency, atheist/agnostic folk.
