A Humanist speaker is coming to Las Cruces. The talk will be held May 17th, doors open at 2:30. We will be on the second floor of the Thomas Branigan Memorial Library (200 E Picacho Avenue, Las Cruces, New Mexico 88001)
About the talk and the speaker: Every religion has a promise it offers to adherents. But what is the promise of humanism? What is its attraction? We know how humanists can critique traditional religion, but what happens when we're done with that? Emerging in the early twentieth century, modern humanism struck a chord because it answered a need. It offered an outlook that many found refreshing. There was something striking about its this-worldly forthrightness and down-to-earth honesty that cleared the air and liberated the mind. And this humanist experience continues today to uplift and inspire growing numbers of Americans.Join us for an interactive talk, with plenty of audience feedback, as we explore together the positive aspects of humanism and enjoy the inspiration it can bring. Fred Edwords has 38 years’ experience in humanist leadership, having led local and national organizations since 1977. He was executive director of the American Humanist Association for fifteen years, editor of the Humanist magazine for twelve, and national director of the United Coalition of Reason for six. Today he is director of planned giving for the American Humanist Association and would be pleased to help you provide a future for your humanist values in your will or other estate plan.
Anyone in the Albuquerque area, Friday, September 5th, please come and and rally with us at Embassy Suites Hotel 1000 Woodward NE at 5 pm against the Archbishop inviting Troy Newman (president of operation rescue) as keynote speaker for a fundraising event. We are rallying against religious patriarchy inviting strident anti-abortion group into NEW MEXICO. Rally for Choice / rally against patriarchy - on FB.
Thanks for the feedback. I just contacted Marilee Harrison and everything is all set. Thank you Marilee and Cassandra.
Hi Lori, your best bet is a humanist celebrant I know in Albuquerque, Marilee Harrison. You can find her on facebook and right here in Atheist Nexus's New Mexico Atheists group. I'll tell her she might hear from you.
anyone know where I can find an atheist or at lest non theist to preform my wedding ceremony?
I founded an atheist meetup group in Las Cruces about nine months ago. It is called Las Cruces Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics and Humanists, we also have a facebook and google+ group under the same name. We meet every other Sunday and we are currently in the planning stages of a podcast so if you'd like to join in come and visit. :)http://www.meetup.com/Las-Cruces-Atheists-Agnostics-and-Skeptics/
Hi Joel! We are here... just not all that often. NM atheist groups that I'm associated with plan on being on here more to get NM atheists together! Check out http://unitedcor.org/nm/page/home !
That's too bad!
Hi Joel! Yes, but it seems we're lying low for some reason.
Anyone still out there?
