Two important upcoming events Thanks to NGB Members who sent this info to me!All over the world, more and more Humanist and Rationalist groups as well as scientific institutions are putting on events to celebrate Darwin Day on 12 February, Darwin?s birthday. This celebration of science and humanity, in honour of the scientist who perhaps more than any other has altered our understanding of the world and of ourselves, whose powerful explanation of the evolution of species made creator deities redundant, is of special significance to all of us. The idea of Darwin Day as a secular celebration has been promoted by the Darwin Day Program, a non-profit organization dedicated to educational and social outreach activities aimed at widening understanding of topics related to evolution, and countering the impact of misinformation.More information about the Darwin Day Program, and a listing of events across the world, can be found at http://darwinday.org. Groups planning talks and exhibitions should contact the Program to register their event. Let?s all help to put this secular celebration on everyone?s calendar!Please join FSGP and AHA for the official rally challenging the WhiteHouse Office of the Faith-Based and Community Initiatives! On February28, 2007, at 9:30 am we will congregate in front of the United States Supreme Court in support of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Oral arguments in their lawsuit questioning the legality of the Faith-Based Initiatives will be heard in the Court. Already confirmed rally speakers include Fred Edwords, Director of Communications for theAmerican Humanist Association; Stuart Jordan, Board Member of theWashington Area Secular Humanists; Lori Lipman-Brown, Director of the Secular Coalition of America; and Margaret Downey, President ofAtheist Alliance International and The Freethought Society of GreaterPhiladelphia (FSGP). More speakers will be added.The Faith-Based Initiatives are a clear breach of the First Amendmentprinciple of church-state separation. Make sure to join us and stand up for your rights!WHO: Freedom From Religion Foundation, The American HumanistAssociation, Secular Coalition for America, Washington Area SecularHumanists, Atheist Alliance international, FSGP and others!WHAT: Protest the Office of the Faith-Based and Community InitiativesWHEN: February 28, 2007, at 9:30 amWHERE: The Steps of the United States Supreme Court - One FirstStreet, NE Washington, DC (Closest metro stops are Capitol South onthe Blue and Orange lines and Union Station on the Red Line) http://www.atheists....upcoming_events
