THE REMARKABLE ROBERT GREEN INGERSOLL: AN OVERVIEW AT THE LIBRARY DURING THE LUNCH HOUR

Featured in:

An overview of a speech about a great American that might be coming to a library near you.

Introduction

In the coming year, freethought societies in every city, town and hamlet in the U.S. will invite their local library officials to sponsor a talk about Robert Green Ingersoll.

Here is an example of how the one-hour sessions might be structured, based on the fact that a version of the following presentation (with all necessary materials) will be distributed to freethinkers groups throughout the land by varied secular organizations. 

What follows is how my own local library billed the basic speech.

A REAL Wellness Take on Donald Trump

Featured in:

A variety of great thinkers are recalled to assess the candidacy of Donald Trump.

Though this is not a paid political ad for my candidacy for president or anything else, I fully endorse this message by FFRF's co-president.

Annie Laurie Gaylor, Co-President of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) of which I am a proud member, wrote a blog on 7/20/16 entitled, "Can it be stated enough? Why the Noah’s Ark myth doesn’t hold water." Reason is the first of four R-E-A-L dimensions of REAL wellness - it deals with respect for science, a capacity for critical thinking, attention to evidence in decision-making and other ways that educated people exercise common sense. I offer it here in its entirety.
