Music Monday: Delta Rae - “Chain On Love”

November 19, 2012 Cody Hashman

Good news, everyone! Music Monday is back! We are hitting the ground running with a Delta Rae song called “Chain On Love.” The song was released prior to the disappointing May 8th vote on Amendment One in North Carolina, another day that fear won. Luckily, proponents of marriage equality knew that we mustn’t dwell on past defeats because the tide is changing, and we can now celebrate the recognition of same-sex marriage in three more states after the November elections!

Sagan’s Garage: An Activity Idea for Your Next Carl Sagan Day

November 16, 2012 Elizabeth Knapp

A year ago I wrote a play called "Sagan's Garage" for our annual Sagan Day, a public event hosted by CFI of Fort Lauderdale, FLASH (Florida Atheists and Secular Humanists), and CASE (Coalition for the Advancement of Science Education) around the time of Sagan's birthday.

Reasons to Debate the Creationists: “It’s just plain wrong”

November 13, 2012 Chris Burke

Creationists. The mere mention of them is the cause of much hair-pulling and frustration among the atheist community. "People believe the Earth is only 6,000 years old, that the flood killed the dinosaurs? Really?" It's no surprise then that a favourite pastime in the community is coming up with arguments against creationism. Load your brain up with facts that you can use in an effort to get the creationists to stop running their mouths.
