Herculaneum is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.
I have already started two discussions to get us going: How do we define manhood in the 21st century? and Rites of Passage: A Lost Ritual?.
This is a private group, and discussions can be viewed by members only. Membership is open to men only. Please check it out.

It dealt with topics such as end of life care, pain relief and addressing the spiritual needs of different individuals based on their religious beliefs.There was one instance however that was decidedly unpleasant, and unfortunately really overshadowed the rest of my time in the…See More
"They mistake logic with internal consistency.
If you show a theist that his views are internally inconsistent, you will have some measure of success. He will make a good faith (ha!) effort at modifying his views to make them more internally…"
