Celebrate Darwin Day with a Brunch at Kid Shelleen's

Join fellow humanists in a celebratory brunch with good food, good drink and good fellowship.

THIS BRUNCH IS POPULAR SO PLEASE RESPOND PROMPTLY SO WE CAN RESERVE ENOUGH PLACES.

Feb. 12th, would have been Charles Darwin's 203nd birthday. While his place in history is assured, the theory he popularized is misunderstood or disbelieved by a great number of Americans.
Recent polls have found that out of the world's democracies, the United States ranks second to last (Turkey is last)in acceptance of evolution. This is disturbing as it contributes to the decline of American power in the 21st century.
Darwin's theory of evolution has withstood extensive testing by by thousands of scientists for over 150 years. The validity of its existence is beyond dispute and yet many cling doggedly to the creation story found in the book of Genesis, a myth that defies reason.
Adam and Eve, supposedly the first humans, awake fully grown. They have no childhood, they have no mother, nor did they ever have one. Their father is a disembodied voice offering no love, only demanding total obedience from his children. He forbids them to think, to ask questions, to partake of the fruit from the Tree Of Knowledge. What kind of father is this?
Charles Darwin dared to think, he dared to ask questions. His theory answers the questions of who we are and why we're here. We're humans, the result of millions of years of evolutionary change. If we continue to deny this basic truth, we do so at our own peril.

    Kid Shalleens' brunches are some of the more popular in the Wilmington area. Good food, good atmosphere and reasonable prices (my wife and I usually have 2 bloody marys with our food, we usually end up paying around $50. including tip). The brunch begins at 11 a.m. until ? More details will follow in the very near future.

    Hi. This is the first time attending a meetup (the location is doable and since it's daytime, I can drive). What are the details...how much is the brunch? Do we pay there, etc? thanks.

    Hello, non-Christian brethren. If you are interested in contributing articles, tasteless jokes, or anything else to theferalatheist website (http://www.theferalatheist.org), please email me at [masked]. The pay, like the afterlife, is nonexistent, but you will get rewarded on earth with a free drink the next time I see you--unless the price of the drink will put you in a higher tax bracket. Have a secular day.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
