This month's topic: Following up on one of last month's articles by Patrick Stokes, "No you are not entitled to you opinion". One of this month's discussions pieces is from the blog Sounds Sciency by Sharon Hill entitled "Over Reliance on Science". I am pairing it with another blog post by Kyle Hill entitled "The Life of Death". In view of the abundance of "scientific" ghost hunting programs being broadcast the days, he makes some astute observations about ghosts and haunting. 

About African Americans for Humanism DC

The need for critical thinking skills and a humanistic outlook in our world is great. This is no less true in the Black community than in others. Many African Americans have been engulfed by religious irrationality, conned by self-serving "faith healers", and swayed by dogmatic revisionist historians. Many others, however, have escaped the oppression of such delusions, and live happy and upstanding lives free of superstition. African Americans for Humanism (AAH) exists to bring these secular humanists together, to provide a forum for communication, and to facilitate coordinated action. In an irrational world, those who stand for reason must stand together. 

The venue is wheelchair accessible. People with disabilities who anticipate needing accommodations or who have questions about physical access may email sdavis [at] centerforinquiry [dot] net in advance of the event.
