Aron Ra on Fundamental Fallacies of Faith on October 9th
EBA is proud to host Aron Ra, President of Atheist Alliance and prominent atheist activist/blogger/podcaster, speaking on the "Fundamental Fallacies of Faith." This tour promotes his new book, Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism, which will be available for sale at the event.
It seems that Creationists employ every logical fallacy as an argument for God. Aron argues that this is deliberately dishonest and auto-deceptive.
Aron speaks in depth and with great passion about Creationism. He is brilliant and does not tolerate fools.
Don't miss this chance to hear and see him, as he rarely speaks in the Bay Area.
Âron hosts the Ra-Men podcast with Dan Arel and Mark Nebo of BeSecular. He is also heading the Phylogeny Explorer Project, an effort to render the entire evolutionary tree of life as a navigable online encyclopedia. He is best known for his video series exposing the Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism.
After the meeting please join us for dinner at a nearby cafe.

Please help remove the Albany Hill Cross by emailing the City Council now!
In February 2016 the Albany City Council, after input from the community, unanimously endorsed removing the 25 foot illuminated Albany Hill Cross from the City park. They declared that it sent a message of endorsement of a particular religion by the City, which instead welcomes all religious perspectives.
Since then the City has negotiated with the Albany Lion’s Club regarding their easement to maintain the cross located in the middle of the park. Unfortunately the Club has threatened to sue if the easement is modified.
Recently the Fire Chief informed the Club that electrical service to the cross would be disconnected, as it represents a severe fire code violation. It is wrapped around and mounted to a Eucalyptus tree that sways in the wind. All this in a Critical Fire Area
The Club will probably apply for a permit to use additional public land for a utility pole. Even if you don't live in Albany, please urge the City Council to refuse such a permit. Please urge them to remove the cross from City property.
Please email the council at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Be sure to let them know if you live in Albany.
