Required Readings, 17 September 2013

Good morning! Here is a grab-bag of articles for today’s Required Readings:

-Atheists in London set up a “godless congregation,” expand to broadcast services in other cities.

-Rachel Held Evans tells atheists that she won’t think Richard Dawkins speaks for all atheists… so long as atheists don’t think that Pat Robertson speaks for all Christians.

-Bill Nye discusses the Huffington Post’s poll on evolution.

-Michelle Obama’s new public-health campaign involves getting people to drink more water – despite the fact that there’s no good scientific evidence indicating that drinking more water has the benefits the campaign says it does.

    I’m sorry, but all I have to say is PUFFIN! I love puffins. We went to Skomer Island a couple of years ago and I’ve been near obsessed ever since.
