Nov. 19 - "Worlds of Their Own" & Dinner

Ever hear the phrases "He's in a world of his own" or "She's in her own little world"? This is definitely true about creationists, Flat-Earthers, believers in perpetual motion machines, etc. The late Bob Schadewald, co-founder and past president of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE), an anti-creationism think tank, was fascinated by these types of people. Now his sister, Minnesota Atheists member Lois Schadewald, has edited a collection of Bob's essays entitled "Worlds of Their Own."

At our November 19 meeting, Lois will read excerpts from the book and answer questions about her brother. Learn how the Earth actually could be the center of the universe! We may also have a video clip of Bob from when he appeared on our atheist cable program.

We hope to have the book for sale at the meeting (cost: $25), but publishing delays may mean that we'll have to take orders and mail them out. There will be a sample copy for people to look at.

The event will take place on Sunday, November 19 at the Roseville Public Library beginning at 1 p.m. We'll have dinner afterwards at the Panda Garden Buffet. Feel free to call [masked]) or e-mail me ([masked]) for more information. If you have never received one before, let me know if you'd like a free sample Minnesota Atheists newsletter.

    I'm writing mainly to record how many people were there: about 50. I counted 47 when I had to leave to run an errand and was told two or three more came after I left. I only caught the end of the presentation, so it's hard for me to judge how good it was. As always, I enjoyed the dinner and conversation afterwards.

    The speaker was kind of flat and monotone but the material was interesting, though dated.
