Irreligious Things to Do in Massachusetts: Humanists and Skeptics

Tomorrow at 7:00 PM, the Greater Worcester Humanists will be meeting at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 90 Holden Street to discuss Religion and Politics in an Election Year. There will be a panel discussion and QA session. Panelists for the meeting are:

  • Rev. Richard Simpson, Rector of St. Francis Episcopal Church in Holden
  • Fr. Frank Scollen, Priest at St. Peters Catholic Church in Worcester
  • Rev. Aaron Payson, Minister of the UU Church in Worcester
  • Mr. Tahir Ali, Public Affairs Rep. of the Worcester Islamic Mosque
  • Mr. David Niose, President of the Greater Worcester Humanists.
  • Moderator: Rev. David Miller, Minister Emeritus of the UUC
GWH has also made available video from the last meeting on April 8. The speaker, zoologist Abigail Hafer of Curry College, gave a talk entitled "Unintelligent Design." The video is in three parts:

On Monday, May 26, it's time for another meeting of Boston Skeptics in the Pub. The meeting this time will be at Tommy Doyle's in Harvard Square, which is at 96 Winthrop Street, Cambridge. The speaker will be Patty Pieniadz former director of Narconon Connecticut, who left the Cult of Scientology after 27 years of membership.

Both of these events are free of charge, so if you're within range of Worcester and Cambridge, c'mon out and get rational and/or skeptical and/or drunk (at least at the Boston Skeptics meeting; leave the brewskis at home for GWH).
