    If you go to and find the "The Staff" page you'll see five people. We've put in countless volunteer hours to pull this event off because we think it's important to educate the public on humanism and reason. The event must be supported in order to continue. If you too think it's important, please "volunteer" the time it will take to support our efforts by attending a really cool event. Click that BUY TICKETS button! Do it now! I look forward to seeing you all there :)

    Now my first comments are back in place. Confusing, this internet stuff.

    I did join it, but the facts about chiropractic "medicine" I presented were censored...I guess. CFI? Afraid of scientific facts as presented by a Bill Moyer documentary several years ago? Hum?

    Massage for relaxation and pleasurable effect is okay, but chiropractic manipulations as medicine are not! I've never forgotten the Bill Moyer expose of chiropractic practices on public TV several decades ago. I also recall those booths set up in malls where chiropodists measured suckers' back alignments and then recommended treatments based on so-called mis-alignments. Turns out that everyone's back is a little out of alignment. It's normal and natural and not a medical condition unless extremely severe. Then medical attention is called for. No different than the difference of eye color and the fact that blue eyes are more subject to myopia or that some people naturally suffer hearing loss and must be treated with hearing aids.

    Hi Kurt, thanks for clarifying. Massage therapists are a bit sensitive to the term "alternative medicine" and the flyer lumped it in with "Superstition" which is a bit of a hot button. I think we are on the same page.

    Massage is an honorable and scientific profession. Licensed massage therapists spend over a year in medical training learning human anatomy and soft tissues. Massage therapy is a regulated profession and requires a license in Oregon and most states. Many medical insurance policies cover massage. Your physician might prescribe massage for certain disorders. I am extremely disappointed that the Portland Humanist Festival are apparently taking an official position to disparage the honorable profession of massage on their Facebook page.
