Question by ∞Never Ending Why?∞: Where can you socialize with free thinkers?
Where finding like minded people that are interested in science and philosophy in London, England. Somewhere I can discuss and debate things over. Are there any gathering, meeting, clubs etc, that are cheap or free that deal with those subjects.

I am interested in:
Physics, Astronomy, Cosmology, Quantum mechanics, Brain science, Consciousness research, Psychology or something similar to them.

I don’t want to take a long course in any of those, I just want to learn more about them because I am interested in them.

Best answer:

Answer by Francois Le Clerc

you could also try to find something that might sound interesting in the yellow pages.

try to avoid any religious organization or fraternity (especially the rotary club) if you can.
