    Why don't you go there and find out? They meet at the Kogod Yard of the Smithsonian Museum every other Sunday at 3pm. http://www.meetup.com/The-DC-Philosophy-Cafe/

    Feel free to contact the nut-job through that site for any further information, he'll be happy to hear from you as he is determined to turn the Meet-up group into a thriving business.

    Haha, good luck with that!

    And we all love and hate our mother.

    But of course without insight, we can try to re-experience our hatred of our mother by projecting it onto all women.

    And just as men love and hate their mother, their lovers are heirs to this love and hate.

    And by the same token, women love and hate their father, and their lovers fall heir to this same love and hate.

    The only killer is indifference.

    ugh... one of those people who thinks that they are so much smarter than they actually are

    furthermore, he'll be quite disappointed when people don't follow his idea like he thinks that they will and he'll probably decide that he's some sort of visionary and the world just isn't ready for his brilliance yet

    in other words, the type of person who the internet is just MADE for

    Reads like a guy in high school, lagging in wisdom despite above average IQ. Has his chance at growing up if he comes down from his head, but I'm afraid he will need to be shaken down from there with no small amount of force. Lacking such an act of God and/or the will to make the leap to the ground himself, he may well still be spinning these schizoid theories when he's 58 years old.

    Well, since you are our only source of information on this guy, of course we'll believe you... However, after we believe you, we will be left to contemplate this factoid in horror and incredulity.

    I never can get my head around how some people manage to get through life while maintaining such an incapacitating level of delusion. Like, assuming he didn't inherit wealth, how DOES this dude manage to have a job (which, presumably, involves dealing with other people on some level)? I'll be even more shocked to learn that he somehow persuaded some unfortunate woman to have sex with, or even marry him, and that he has a family as a result.
    And that's my two cents on the subject.

    I read the first and last few sentences. I saw no reason to read more.

    I don't like these kinds of questions where the person asking the question already knows the answer and is investigating what people don't know rather than presenting subjects directly.

    Most of us have the most extraordinary beliefs. Only our extraordinary beliefs are shared by many others. And such shared extraordinary beliefs are called religions.
