Dr. Eric Stone on "Why Reconciling Religion with Science is Just Plain Silly"
A lot of scientists these days are too frightened of not getting their grants funded by congressional theocrats to tell you why religion and science are completely incompatible. Dr. Eric Stone, a retired neuroscientist, has never been one of them.
Dr. Stone shows that trying to reconcile science with religion is like trying to reconcile modern reproductive biology with the stork theory of birth. If God were real science simply wouldn't work.
Eric Stone, PhD, did basic neuropsychopharmacological work on depressive illness for over 40 years at two major medical institutions and has published extensively in peer reviewed journals. He is the current President of the Atheists and Agnostics group at Rossmoor in Walnut Creek.

Beer Not God
Wow, what a great turnout we had last month, let's keep it up! Beer Not God will once again be held on the second Tuesday of the month - the day before Tax Day so everyone should have a good reason to want a beer! Once again we'll be hosted by the fine crew at Pacific Coast Brewing Co. in downtown Oakland. Pacific Coast is one of the oldest brewpubs in the area and has a solid beer selection (both their own and guest taps), basic pub food, and very friendly service. It's located on Washington at 9th in downtown Oakland, close to the 12th St. City Center BART station, and as always street parking is free after 6:00. We'll be out back on the patio where it's pretty quiet and we can converse. So please join fellow East Bay Atheists for an evening of friendly conversation and, um, beer.
