I’ve gotten a few emails about upcoming events that might be of interest to those of you in the areas, so here you go:
Tuesday, September 7th, 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $25.
In Birmingham, AL, Christopher Hitchens will make a public appearance to debate the author of “The Devil’s Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions” (and a guy seen in Ben Stein’s Expelled), David Berlinski. The topic is “How Atheism Poisons Everything.”
