A Couple Events for Your Calendar

Two events are coming up. If you live in the areas, please consider attending!

1) For those of you in New York City, here’s a talk worth checking out: Duncan Crary, communications director of the Institute for Humanist Studies, and Alison Bates, senior campus organizer for the Secular Student Alliance, will be speaking on “Getting Organized, Getting Out There, Getting Going.” The talk will focus on the new push to legitimize Atheism and Humanism as well as what is going on in the movement to change the world “to make it accept Atheists as part of the human family.”

The talk will take place this Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 pm (local time) at Bamiyan Restaurant, 358 Third Ave. at 26th St.

2) I’m not a huge fan of protests, but there will be one in front of Ken Ham’s Creation Museum in Boone County, Kentucky on May 28, the day the museum opens. The “Rally for Reason” will be gathering at 9:00 am (local time) outside the museum gates.

The organizers stress that they do not challenge the right of [Answers in Genesis] to present their worldview. “They can teach that things fall up if they wish,” said Edwin Kagin of Union, Kentucky. “We are simply trying to show that the nonsense they are vending is not accepted by those who do not share their fundamentalist religious views.”

    I’m glad they clarified that, though I hope the nuance isn’t lost on those who observe their protest.
