Evolutionary biologists claim that humans are just evolved primates. Others thinkers claim that humans are something special, God's gift to the Universe. What are we, really?

Is thought a gift from God or is it just a by-product of relentless evolution? Does art, music, poetry, etc hint of the angel within us? Or is it spandrel of evolution?

Is creativity something divine? Or are we creative because creative beings survived better? Is intuition a subconscious nudge, or a message from heaven ? Come to Socrates Cafe to find out who wins the Apes vs Angels contest

Socrates Café is a philosophy meetup that is open to absolutely everyone. We will meet to discuss questions that are common to all of humanity. It's held in a casual cafe environment and we encourage everyone to join in the discussion - but there's no obligation to do so. We're bringing philosophy back to the people!
