January 2010 Freethinker Meeting (Canceled)

Postby Dardedar » Thu Jan 28, 2010 1:11 am

Note: Due to the snow storm the Fayetteville Library will be closed on Saturday and we will have to postpone this months agenda until our February meeting.

Congratulations, it's 2010, and you've made it another loop around the sun. Now it's time for another great year for the Fayetteville Freethinkers!

Our January meeting is chock-full of useful nuggets of wisdom.

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." Did you know we have experts on hand and standing by in the areas of:

Biology, chemistry, physics, philosophy, archaeology, astro-physics and goat ranching?

Well, we do.

So 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.

Jack and Cheryl will have a presentation on one of the most famous American freethinkers, Thomas Paine.

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, and some door prizes and of course good heretical funny bits from cyberspace.

Now... about this ice storm. If we were superstitious, we might ask you to appeal to an almighty while laying on a cold floor and perhaps beating your back with a small whip. Actually, that's not a bad idea, couldn't hurt, maybe give it a try. No, wait, since we're not superstitious, we'll have to just hope for the best yet accept the reality as it comes. Seriously, we should know how bad it will be by Friday evening. If the meeting is canceled we'll send out a notice immediately and our website and forum will also be updated with the information. If you can't get access to the internet before you head out, call Darrel: [...]

If every thing is covered in ice and you can't even get to a phone, then you're really in a bad way and perhaps it's best to just stay home and try the cold floor and personal flagellation thing.

Wasn't a Global Warming conference postponed or canceled for the same reason a few years back? :lol:

Right. Just as a Republican strategy meeting was cancelled because someone accidentally brought some facts...

Probably. But that would be a "weather" event wouldn't it. One wouldn't want to make the (rather common) mistake of thinking a singular weather event would have anything whatsoever to do with global climate trends which refer time spans of decades. Recommended reading.
