Memphis Freethought Lecture Series|
The Memphis Freethought Alliance is a small group that is just starting out and trying to build membership and awareness. If plan to be in Memphis you should check them out. Or, if you know of like-minded people in the area, consider forwarding them this announcement. At some point I'd like to gather willing RET members and roadtrip to Nashville and meet them halfway to discuss how to grow an organization like ours.
Memphis Freethought Alliance his proud to announce guest speaker Dr. Barbara Forrest who will discuss: Inside Creationismâ€™s Trojan Horse: A Closer Look at Intelligent Design, Saturday July 16th, Central Library, meeting room C, Poplar Ave. 1 â€“ 3 pm.
