    In this month’s podcast, Todd Stiefel interviews Rebecca Hale, the newly elected president of the American Humanist Association. On Jan. 1, 2013, Rebecca “Becky” Hale became the 20th president of the American Humanist Association. She is the 4th woman to serve in the role. The last female president of the AHA was Suzanne Paul of Farmington, Michigan, whose term completed in 1992. Hale will preside over the current AHA board of directors, which is comprised of six women and six men. She has been an advocate for secularism and humanism for many years as co-owner of EvolveFISH.com, the largest online store of freethought merchandise. She is also the co-founder of the Freethinkers of Colorado Springs, a local affiliate of the American Humanist Association, and serves on its board of directors. She is a Humanist Celebrant certified by the Humanist Society of the American Humanist Association. Todd talks to Becky about her background, including growing up as a Unitarian Universalist and why she has moved away from the church while still strongly embracing humanism. Becky reveals her desire to see more attention paid to the younger generation while maintaining and strengthening the AHA’s existing relationships. Listen to this month’s podcast to find out more about new AHA President Rebecca Hale! We also bid farewell to podcast co-host Jes Constantine, as she accepts a new position working for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We will miss you, Jes!

        This is an edited version of the 2/8/13 'Real Time with Bill Maher' panel featuring Dr. Lawrence Krauss. I have cut as much as possible without making the conversation difficult to follow. Note from the editor: Tone of the conversation changes about half way through for anyone not wanting to hear about politics. 'The problem with journalism and science like that is that You're trying to have two sides to every story, but the thing about science is that most often one side is wrong.' - Dr Krauss 'Lots of people have spiritual experiences, and we should celebrate that. I have one when I look at Hubble space telescope images and see galaxies that are ten billion light years away with civilizations that are long gone. People say science isn't spiritual, but to me it's more spiritual because it's actually real!' - Dr Krauss

          http://bayyinah.tv http://facebook.com/noumanbayyinah http://twitter.com/noumanbayyinah http://bayyinah.com ___________________ ABOUT THE SPEAKER - Shaykh Nouman is the founder and CEO of Bayyinah, as well as the lead instructor for a number of Bayyinah courses including the 'Fundamentals of Classical Arabic' and 'Divine Speech'. His first exposure to Arabic study was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where he completed his elementary education. He continued Arabic grammar study in Pakistan, where he received a scholarship for ranking among the top 10 scores in the national Arabic studies board examinations in 1993. But his serious training in Arabic began in the United States in 1999 under Dr. Abdus-Samie, founder and formal principal of Quran College, Faisalabad, Pakistan who happened to be touring the US for intensive lectures in Tafsir and Arabic studies. Under Dr. Abdus-Samie, Nouman developed a keen methodical understanding of Arabic grammar. He further benefited from Dr. Abdus-Samie by internalizing his unique teaching methods and later translating his work into English for the benefit of his own students. Nouman served as professor of Arabic at Nassau Community College until '06 and has taught Modern Standard and Classical Arabic at various venues for nearly 7 years with over 10,000 students nationwide. Currently he has dedicated himself to a seven-year-long project, of conducting a linguistic & literary focus Qur'anic Tafseer series in English.

            Jesus said the world would know that we were Disciples of His, by our love, John 13:35, but why do so many who claim the Name of Jesus use scripture as loopholes to make excuses for their sin. If we "know Jesus," and He "knows us,: then their will be a recognition of fruit and a realization of Lordship. Join Pastor Ben Hiwale for this encouraging word!

              http://creation.com/creation-tv | One of the pillars of the Big Bang theory is that the light we see from objects far away has a higher redshift than closer objects. However, quasars with a very high redshift have been discovered in and near galaxies that have a low redshift. Richard Fangrad and Calvin Smith explain what this means for the Big Bang. Main article: From Creation magazine 29(2) Bye-bye, big bang? (http://creation.com/bye-bye-big-bang) Related articles • What is redshift?

                Last April, whilst visiting Australia for the Global Atheist Convention, A.C. Grayling took time out to visit Embiggen Books to speak about his latest publication, The Good Book. In this talk he considers his own discovery of the great philosophers of antiquity, his reasons for devoting thirty years to such a monumental task, and reveals some of the the distillation and writing processes he enlisted for this most magnificent achievement. 46:03 — .....it's worth endlessly iterating this point; that the great falsehood that has been perpetrated on most of humanity, through most of its history, is that there is one right way to live, one correct answer, one great truth that everybody must believe.
