This chapter was founded in October, 2007 with 15 in attendance, and has grown to host 70-100 or more attendees each meeting, including students from local colleges. We meet 4 times a year, twice in the Fall and twice in the Spring. Topics have ranged from ancient cosmology and the origins debate to stem cell therapy to Abraham Lincoln's scientific side.
