9/10 – 7pm – Free Thought Society presents Barry Vacker

Free Thought Society of Greater Philadelphia Presents

reading from Starry Skies Moving Away (2009)
which explores how humanity’s view of utopia and destiny has evolved (and devolved) with cosmological discoveries, from Galileo to the space age to the big bang. The reading will include a most original interpretation of the long-term meaning of Apollo 8 and 11, the meaning never provided by NASA or the media. Certain to stimulate atheists and free thinkers!
