Info on the Secular Humanist Society's Book Club meeting: "The New Atheism"

Seems a critical paragraph of info was missing. This discussion is on Thursday evening, 6:30-8, at the Muhlenberg Public Library, conveniently located at 209 W. 23rd St, off Seventh Ave. Take the sidewalk elevator to the 3rd floor.

Sam Harris writes, "Victor J. Stenger dispels the blizzard of lies and half-truths [about 'the new atheism'] with great skill in this timely and accessible book."

Stenger, Professor of Philosophy, at the University of Colorado, and Emeritus Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Hawaii, demonstrates in detail that naturalism is sufficient to explain everything we observe in the universe, from the most distant galaxies to the inner workings of the brain that result in the phenomenon of mind.

John Rafferty will lead the discussion. Join us even if you haven't finished reading. The SHSNY Book Club is open to all and free. Located within a block of many subway and bus stations, and the PATH.

Every SHSNY Book Club is Book Swap, too. Bring the books gathering dust on your shelves and take you pick of other readers' dusty books. Some really good stuff! The leftovers are donated to the public library where the meeting is held.New York Philosophy
