Volunteers needed

Dear Martin and the Brisbane Atheists,

I can't come to meetings too easily, but good luck to you in getting the 
message across.
As a pretty evangelical atheist, I'd like to help spread the word among my 
peers, and thought I'd ask if there are any atheists who'd consider 
volunteering to provide classes for U3A seniors?

Check out University of the Third Age on the web and you'll find that the 
org provides classes for seniors "for pleasure and satisfaction".  In 
Brisbane there are great classes on topics on computing (beginners to 
advanced, basic and publishing etc.), philosophy, history, languages and 
even astronomy.  However, there are also classes on less scientific topics 
like palmistry, bible studies and (so-called ) science and the paranormal.

Take your pick of topic, but I would enjoy a class that would encourage us 
to use reason to make sense of the world.

Classes are all during business hours.  If there is anyone who could tutor 
and who is willing to spare some time,  please contact me and lets have a 
talk.  By the way, I'm not an organiser,  to just a keen member.  As such, I 
don't know how the 'powers that be' would react, but do think the committee 
are educated enough to accept a good offer.

I've just read "What we Believe but Cannot Prove - Today's Leading Thinkers 
on Science in the Age of Uncertainty", ed. John Brockman, a good read.  Can 
any of you recommend easy-read scientific books for this senior atheist?
