Humanists of Houston Meeting and HFA Newsletter

This weekend I attended the Humanists of Houston Gathering. Bob Finch, a former professor of Mechanical Engineering, gave a talk about Darwin's life. It was both interesting and informative. Did you know that Darwin took about 20 years to publish his 'Origin of Species'? Also, the death of his daughter from scarlet fever is one of the events thought to have solidified Darwin's lack of belief in god.

While I was at the HoH meeting I met with Jim, who has been editing and publishing the Houston Freethought Alliance Newsletter for the last few years. Jim would like to transition the responsibility to someone else, so SCUSA has agreed to take over the newsletter. We thank Jim for all his hard work on the newsletter! If anyone has any submissions for the newsletter, please send them no later than a week before the 1st of each month. We are excited about continuing all the great content of the newsletter while giving it a SCUSA twist and including pictures, comics, and other interesting additions.

By the way, I've finally figured out how to add the option for people to subscribe to the blog by e-mail. Yay! This means that you don't have to have a google account to follow the blog.

Thanks for supporting SCUSA!
