The Round Table Discussion Series provides a space where people can come together once a month to discuss a specific topic related to current events, politics, religion, philosophy, relationships, music, pop culture, or anything else that may spark an interesting conversation. Each month features a different topic, and allows participants to explore ideas and expand their minds by getting different perspectives on various subjects. Inspired by and designed to be held in the style of the 17th and 18th century English coffeehouses, these are the types of conversations people had in college that don't happen as often once they're out of that setting. It's a great way to get discussions off the comments section of online articles and have face to face interactions with real people. Join us!

 

This month's topic: Aliens!!

 

It's the last discussion of the year, so we might as well do something fun and maybe a little on the silly side, so... Aliens! 

How likely is it that there's intelligent life on other planets? If it was discovered that there was, what would this mean for religion? How would the world react? Would the discovery be a uniting force for people around the globe, no longer concerned with differences of race or culture?

And why haven't we made contact or been visited by extraterrestrials in the first place? Conservative estimates suggest that there are 100 billion billion Earth-like planets in the universe. Are humans, as intelligent life, really that special and rare? Or do we simply not have the proper technology to communicate with life on other planets? Could it be that Earth is just in some rural corner of the galaxy? This and more will be discussed. Come join us!
