NOSHA's Annual Discussion Meeting

  • When: Saturday, August 15, 2015 @ 4:00 pm
  • Audubon Zoo, 6500 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA view map

At least once a year NOSHA organizes our popular discussion meeting where attendees can talk about topics and express their opinions and beliefs, relay personal experience and connect intellectually.

Our topics will include: How do you handle “Woo” experiences and the people in your life who insist on discussing angels, crystals or the like? Woo is defined as “...the way a person is when they uncritically believe unsubstantiated or unfounded ideas. Short for ‘woo woo’”. Tell us about your most memorable interactions and how you handle it.

The second topic was recently discussed by the Baton Rouge Freethinkers group: Are we obligated to help those around us? If so, how far does your circle extend and why?  Family only? Your neighborhood or favorite organization? Day-in, day-out? Only after a natural disaster? From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs?  Do you give to panhandlers? Bring all philosophies!


To get to the meeting place at the zoo: Enter from Magazine Street at Zoo Avenue (between the two stone lions) and continue to the statue of Audubon. The entry way to our area (the Dominion Learning Center) is to the right of the main entrance through the metal gates. 

REMINDER: The gate will be locked, so you will need to press a button on the left side that will alert zoo security that you are attending the NOSHA meeting. 

If the weather is good or there is a festival, parking will be at a premium so give yourself plenty of time to find a spot.

All NOSHA meetings are free and open to the general public.
