Episode 24 – The Great War Part 2

November 11, 1918 – November 11, 2018

One hundred years ago today the greatest and most violent struggle the world had known was brought to its end.  In this episode we continue our discussion of the war and the events that have had such a powerful effect on our world today

Watch the ceremony where Pvt. Henry Johnson was *finally, after 100 years* awarded with the American Medal of Honor.  It’s short and beautiful.  Thanks, Obama

The Great War, a documentary on PBS.org has been our guiding light in this journey, and we recommend you watch/view it.   The past is there to be learned from.  Make yourself wiser.

Note:  The Great War  is a six hour documentary, served up on PBS.org in three 2-hour segments.  This episode of the Secular Hubcast is drawn on our experience of Part 2 of the documentary only.

Episode 14 – Secular Hub Founders

Five years ago a small group composed of 21 highly motivated individuals came together to form the Secular Hub.  The Hub has become an important community center for many more people since.  Two of those original founders speak here, discussing what atheism and the secular community was like before the Hub existed and how it has changed since.

These two founders have something else in common as well in that both live with cerebral palsy, and they discuss what it means to live and work in America.

According to The Secular Coalition for Colorado’s website:

Atheists for Humanity Inc. is a 501(c)3 charity non-profit based in Denver, Colorado. Our goals are simple: raise money and awareness for worthy charities and actively work to de-stigmatize atheists and atheism

 

In case you didn’t see it, the Secular Hub got some positive press last year.  Check out the article for a decent characterization of a Sunday morning at the Hub, made possible by the initiative of the founders

3 – Andrew Curtis Forlines – Secular Comedy Home School

This week we speak with Secular Hub member Andrew Curtis Forlines.  Currently a chef and comedian in the Denver area, Andrew speaks about what it was like to grow up home schooled, never visiting or attending any organized school.  What type of religious thinking can create a situation where children don’t have a basic right to an education, and what are some of the consequences?
Andrew and Jesse also discuss the comedy scene, accidentally getting a contact high at work, making scientists better communicators and bringing people together.  In addition to being a member of the Secular Hub Andrew also volunteers at the Hub by organizing and running events such as Secular Night Live, cooking for events like pancake breakfasts, and running Dinner and a Documentary night, as well as other events.  He’s kind of a working machine.
