As promised, we are going to have some Sunday meetings this year and this month is our first one. Note, our freethinker meeting this weekend will be on Sunday, 2:00pm.
Okay Freethinkers, let's try this again.
Our February (Sunday) meeting is even more chock-full of useful nuggets of wisdom than our January meeting was going to be!
Doug Krueger will tell us about an obscure but revealing South Sea tribe that uses a Marine flag as a holy relic and whose members drink an interesting, mildly narcotic, liquid. You won't believe how they process it. And Darrel and Doug have recently tried it! We have a short movie segment that makes it all clear.
We will have our popular interactive segment: the Moral Question of the Day. Also, we're introducing a brand new feature called: "Ask the Expert." We have experts on hand and standing by in the areas of:
Biology, chemistry, physics, philosophy, archaeology, astro-physics and goat ranching?
In our never ending quest to get you freethinkers stimulated and THINKING freely, bring a novel or perplexing question in one of those categories and we'll put it to our experts. Best to write it down in advance. Witty and bizarre is encouraged.
Jack and Cheryl will have a presentation celebrating Thomas Paine's birth day January 29, 1737 "The Age of Reason"...The reason Thomas Paine has been forgotten. They will also announce the winner of the "Why Should Thomas Paine be Remembered" essay contest in which 102 Arkansas school children participated.
Also, Darrel Henschell will debunk and dismantle a popular e-mail going around the Internet. Even better, he will show us, step by step how to quickly and easily investigate these things for ourselves.
We will have some of the latest news items on freethinking, including recent attempts by some religious elements to skirt around the Constitution.
All this, including door prizes and of course good heretical funny bits from cyberspace.
