Skeptical Highlights

Remember CiTR’s annual fundraiser is coming up! November 17th is when it starts. We’ll be asking for donations to help keep CiTR doing what it does best. Here on Radio Freethinker we’ll have some great skeptical themed prizes for donors so be sure to tune in and make a donation.

They are completely crazy in the US or at least in Wisconsin

Level 1 Crazy – it is now legal for legislators to carry concealed guns onto the Senate and Assembly floor, cabinet meetings, etc…

Level 2 Crazy – it also now legal for citizens to carry concealed guns into the viewing galleries on the legislature…

Level 3 Crazy – it is now, effectively, ILLEGAL, for citizens to carry signs or to take pictures in same said galleries.

Its gotta feel like Rome as the Visigoths came charging over the hill, an empire on the precipice of collapse.

    There are other freethought groups in Canada, including Humanist Canada at the national level. Even here in Vancouver we have the BC Humanists, the Indian Rationalists, the campus groups, and Skeptics in the Pub.
