Hello, freethinkers! It's time for our October meeting of the Fayetteville
Freethinkers. We have some interesting topics for you this month, just on the eve of Halloween. If you think vampires, werewolves, and zombies are scary, you should see how folks at the local churches jump at the sight of freethinkers!

On the agenda so far:

Our main event will be watching a little known gem we discovered. It's a documentary entitled "Marjo" which is about an evangelical prodigy who was pushed into preaching at age four but eventually had a crisis of conscience and gave it up. He spills the beans about what a scam it all is and gives a behind the scene view of it all. It won Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature (1972) and it didn't play in the South (other than Texas) because the distributor was afraid it would cause outrage in the Bible Belt. We think it's been long enough.

With the current buzz about geocentrism making a come back (in "certain circles") we will have Felix, our resident aerospace engineer, give us few reasons to believe we are not at the center of the universe.

Michael will step us through some freethinker forum basics. He can even sign you up and get you started.

Of course, we'll have a few other things to share as well.
