RECENT NEWS!Aron Ra Comes to SLO
Sep 9, 2016
Aron Ra, president of Atheist Alliance of America and host the Ra-Men podcast is visiting SLO, Friday October 7th, 6PM at the SLO Senior Center! Aron will discuss his book, Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism in which he explains and exposes the worst creationist arguments.
"This book demonstrates once again that Aron Ra is a master of eloquence, and of cutting to the chase with precision. This is an enjoyable read even for the well informed. But we often forget how embarrassingly uninformed biblical literalists are. This delightfully written takedown will educate and embarrass them all over again." — Richard Carrier, Ph.D., author, On the Historicity of Jesus
Religious fundamentalists and biblical literalists present any number of arguments that attempt to disprove evolution. Those with a sympathetic ear often fail to critically examine these creationist claims, leading to an ill-informed public and, perhaps more troubling, ill-advised public policy. As Aron Ra makes clear, however, every single argument deployed by creationists in their attacks on evolution is founded on fundamental scientific, religious, and historical falsehoods–all of them.
Admission is $5 at the door only (free for AU/SLO premium members) and open to the public with additional donations much appreciated! Books will be available for purchase as well as a personal signing by Aron after the talk.
