Why Rationality Matters by Adrian Niemetz
In ancient times, virtually all humans assumed that the sun revolved around the earth, because, after all, that is
what appeared to happen when viewed. This of course, is not believed by people today because factual information showed it to be false. Yet, many millions still believe in supernatural forces deciding their fate and build large and impressive buildings to these supernatural beings which have not been proven to exist. They focus on death instead of living their lives which is the only one anyone gets.

Fred is "one of the greats" of the Freethought movement. He has run local groups, national associations, published The Humanist Magazine, and is a fantastic speaker.
He will be the "lead act" of the Colorado Secular conference and this is a FREE Event. !! Only costs a drive to Denver. There will be a reception following the event. Here is the write-up from the conference web site.
The stunning Burwell v. Hobby Lobby et.al. Supreme Court Decision grants "closely held" corporations newly created "religious freedoms" that trump the religious freedoms of living breathing human beings. This creates a special class of "corporate personhood" with the power to nullify the human freedoms and Constitutional Rights of its Human employees.
