Stay up to date with AAH DC events by joining our group on Meetup.com.

This meeting’s discussion will center on a special article by Sharon Hill from the Skeptical Inquirer on-line site entitled “Burning the Mean and Disparaging Skeptic Straw Man”. Ms Hill discusses her experiences with paranormal believers which I found not too different from the reactions of religious believers to skeptics and skepticism. Many of these people propose behavior modification for skeptics but is this necessary? Her article can be found here.  

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.
