At our CAH event on December 5, the "Humanist Creation Story" was presented. It tells the story from the Big Bang to our Concord Area Humanists. It was so well received that we would like to share it with others. So, the slides used for the talk are attached as a 19-page PDF file. Please feel free to share it with others (maybe a Christmas present?). Read more about Humanist Creation Story »
Greetings! Two weeks ago, CAH had its last event of the season. We will pick up again on October 3, in Parish Hall, 7 pm, when David Ropeik will present “Cognitive Limits on Human Reason”. This was scheduled for February, but was postponed because of heavy snow. We hope the October weather will be better. Do enjoy the intervening Summer and come back eager for the new series we are planning for the Fall, starting with David. Read more about A Brief History of Concord Area Humanists (CAH) »

I purchased a copy, and have since enjoyed reading it. I was inspired by this book, in which she described so many relevant topics. Each topic was thoroughly referenced.

On January 6, 2016, I gave a talk for the Concord Area Humanists titled "Lifelong Learning (for Free) Using the Internet", and I promised to publish links to the resources mentioned in the talk and a link to the slides. (Unfortunately, I did not arrange to have the talk videotaped.) I hope you found the topic interesting and find some of these resources valuable as you indulge your own intellectual curiosity.
