Congratulations, Humanist of the Year!

Congratulations to Dale McGowan, Harvard's Humanist of the Year!

If you're a parent, teacher or someone concerned with rational thinking in children, you should totally check out the book Parenting Beyond Belief, and Dale's ever-so-pretty blog, The Meming of Life. I found the chapters dealing with science and with death to be illuminating for myself as well.

And watch for Dale's new book, Raising Freethinkers.

Richly deserved. I will raise a mug of Kicking Horse coffee in honour.

You know, Glendon. Someday you could be the humanist of the year.

I don't know about that, Mike. I'm not a staunch advocate and I think my paintings are pretty abstract compared to writing a guide or attempting to stop genocide.

Of course, maybe I'm missing sarcasm.

(Umm, 1st commenter Science what should I say you're welcome for? Colour me confused.)

Thanks for bringing this up and congratulations to Dale... reminds me that I have to finish reading Parenting Beyond Belief! What I've read so far is compelling and useful, and I'll look forward to the new book too!

Nice to hear from you, William!
