He escaped to Canada as a refuge fearing for his life. He joins Justin Trottier for an exclusive interview on Think Again! TV to discuss his story and the plight of atheists in Bangladesh.<br /> <br /> Bangladesh has recently been at the center of a human rights crisis as authorities have detained several prominent bloggers for "hurting religious sentiments," followed by the arrest of a newspaper editor who printed quotations from the targeted bloggers, and two more young people for making "derogatory remarks" about Islam on Facebook. Tens of thousands of people have rallied in the country's capital to demand more arrests, tougher blasphemy laws, and have threatened violence if their demands are not met by April 25.<br /> <br /> An international coalition of atheist and humanist organizations, led by the Center for Inquiry and our partners the International Humanist and Ethical Union and American Atheists, will protest the arrest and persecution of atheist bloggers and other dissenters in Bangladesh with demonstrations in New York, Washington, London, Ottawa, and other cities around the world on Thursday, April 25.<br /> <br /> These global demonstrations will be unprecedented for the freethought movement, as secularists around the world express their solidarity with those jailed for speaking their minds about religion. Protesters will draw the world's attention to the plight of those persecuted for exercising their rights to freedom of belief and expression, and attempt to spur the international community to take action and compel the government of Bangladesh to change course.

In findings published in the February 8 issue of the journal Science, the researchers analyzed the world's largest dataset of genetic and physical traits to find that placental mammals diversified into present-day lineages much later than is commonly thought: after the extinction event 65 million years ago that eliminated non-avian dinosaurs. This finding, and the visualization of the placental ancestor -- an insect-eating animal that weighed less than a pound -- was made with the help of a cloud-based and publicly accessible database called MorphoBank.<br /> <br /> MorphoBank is an initiative funded primarily by NSF with additional support from Stony Brook University, the American Museum of Natural History, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center.<br /> <br /> Visit MorphoBank: <a href="http://mammaltree.informatics.sunysb.edu/">http://mammaltree.informatics.sunysb.edu/</a>
