The event room at Fresh Market (http://www.freshmadisonmarket.com/daily-menu) got excellent reviews the last time we used it as a venue, so we're going to use it again, this time to view the documentary "Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial (https://vimeo.com/145930378)."

This NOVA documentary includes numerous interviews with Dr. Eugenie Scott (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugenie_Scott), former director of the National Center for Science Education (http://ncse.com/). Dr. Scott is going to be a presenter Friday, April 8, at the Freethought Festival (http://freethoughtfestival.org/), and this is a great opportunity to learn a bit about the topic of her presentation prior to that. (Her talk is entitled, "What if Intelligent Design had won in Dover?," referring to the Kitzmiller vs. Dover (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitzmiller_v._Dover_Area_School_District) case.)

Please arrive around 6:30 to get your food/beverages from downstairs, and then join other skeptics in the upstairs event room. (Food options include a hot food bar, salad bar, sushi, and tasty deli options, while beverages range from soda and fresh squeezed juices to beer, wine and more.)

At 7:00, we'll start the film, and I'm sure that will be followed by some lively discussion. (Note: Judgment Day is 112 minutes long, twice as the length of the average Nova documentary, in case that helps anyone plan for their evening.)

Hope to see folks there! :-)
