BNB12: (Dis)Honesty

Believers and Nonbelievers In Discussion

Dan Ariely’s documentary “(Dis)honesty: The Truth About Lies”* inspired this discussion. Are we aware of our propensities to be honest? To be dishonest? How do Believers and Nonbelievers perceive each other? Is there a difference or will this be the first panel with everyone in complete agreement? (Is that even possible?)

Panelists:
Anondah Saide, Developmental Psychology, UC Riverside
Joan Francis, Psychologist, Inland Empire Atheists and Agnostics
Elizabeth Moore, Packinghouse Christian Fellowship
Summer Song , Author, WitchDigest.com

Hosted by Phil Calderone, BelieveInReality.com

Sunday Morning Breakfast Meetup

If you like to sleep in on Sunday and do not want to get up for our weekly hike but would like some lively conversation later in the morning, come join us for breakfast. Our hiking group always meets for a meal and a pleasant chat after our hike. Farmer Boy’s Restaurant is located on the corner of University Ave. and the 91 Freeway in downtown Riverside. Their prices are reasonable and there is a patio outside where we sit, making for a nice non-noisy location. If it is nice and we are able to sit outside, friendly dogs on leashes are welcome. This meetup time is 9:15 am, which is a close approximation. We might be a early or a few minutes late getting down the mountain, so wait for us if you do not find us there! Look for the IEAA tee shirts if it is your first time to attend.

Girls’ Night Out at ProAbition

Come on out for a relaxing mid-week break at ProAbition. The food is great, the cocktails even better, and the time with friends is best of all!

***This event is limited to women only.***

Let’s go see Miyazaki’s Nausicaä in the Valley of the Wind 9/24/17!

For you manga and animé geeks, as well as the open-minded (as you all are), come join us at the Harkins Mountain Grove 16 in Redlands to see Nausicaä in the Valley of the Wind on 9/24/17 at 12:55 pm. Be sure to get your tickets on line as they cannot be bought at the theatre by going to http://gkidstickets.com/us/studio-ghibli-fest-2017-nausicaa-of-the-valley-of-the-wind/ (be sure to search for Redlands, CA).

Miyazaki first presented Nausicaä and her postapocalyptic world in a manga series that ran from 1982 up until 1994. This feature-length animé version was released in 1984, and while it predates the founding of Studio Ghibli by one year, it is nevertheless considered their first film. Nausicaä’s people live in the Valley of the Wind, a narrow safe haven between the encroaching desert and the toxic forest where giant insects prowl. Nausicaä wishes nothing more than to study and understand the plants and animals of the forest. However, she soon finds her people and herself caught up in the violent struggles of the neighboring kingdomes Tolmekia and Pejite as they try to bring back the very weapons that destroyed the planet in the Seven Days of Fire a thousand years before.

We will be watching the dubbed version (the Japanese version plays Monday), which features such notable vocal talents as Alison Lohman, Patrick Stewart, James Edward Olmos, Uma Thurman, Shia LaBoeuf, and Mark Hamill.

Weekly Mount Rubidoux Fun Hike!

Join us for a FUN event EVERY Sunday morning! The regular hikers in this event rarely sign up even though they hike every Sunday. There are always more people than the two hosts so don’t be shy in joining us!

Want to have fun and stay healthy too? Join us for some exercise AND enjoy the wonders of nature at the same time! This exercise is fun and the views from the top are absolutely awesome! It takes about a half hour to hike up and a half hour down, maybe 45 minute each way at a slower pace. This is an easy hike, but may be strenuous for anyone who is not in good physical condition. Bring a bottle of water and wear comfortable shoes. If you are a jogger this will be a VERY easy hike, but if you never get any exercise you may want to try walking in your neighborhood for a few weeks before you do this hike.

FOOD: Each week we meet at the base of the mountain, hike up, enjoy the amazing view, talk for a while, solve all the world’s problems, hike back down, and have a light breakfast or early lunch at one of the local restaurants nearby. If you prefer to hike and skip the food that’s fine too.

DIRECTIONS: Mount Rubidoux Memorial Park is located on the western edge of downtown Riverside, just a few minutes off the 91 Freeway. From the 91 Freeway exit at the Mission Inn / University Off Ramp Proceed west on either Mission Inn Boulevard or University to Redwood Drive. Turn left on Redwood to 9th Street Turn right on 9th and go one block to the Park entrance (where 9th street ends)

BRIEF DIRECTIONS: Get on 9th street and go north until it ends!

PLEASE try to arrive a few minutes early because we like to start the hike on time. We meet in front of the 9th street entrance gate. Also, PLEASE RSVP since we will wait a while at the start point IF we know you are coming and you are a little late. Friendly dogs are welcome but remember that dogs must be on a short leash. No toilets in the park.

FREE parking on parts of 9th street and some others, but be careful since some of the streets are residents only parking. PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE PARKING SIGNS SINCE THERE ARE LOTS OF RESTRICTIONS ON PARKING IN THE AREA. MUCH OF THE PARKING IS RESERVED FOR RESIDENTS WITH PERMITS! TICKETS ARE LIBERALLY DISPENSED BY PARKING ENFORCEMENT

FREE admission to the park.

The Red Dot is where we meet.
