a chapter of the
American Humanist Association
is a nonprofit educational organization whose main purpose is to promote humanism as a viable alternative to supernatural and theistic belief systems. We serve as a forum for humanists, atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and other like-minded individuals in the Las Vegas area. We promote the Jeffersonian principle of separation of religion and government, the rights of nonreligious people in our society, free inquiry and thought, a naturalistic view of the universe and a reason-based, secular ethical system. Our membership is open to all like-minded people without regard to race, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical disability, political or other affiliations.

Reason: Science and Faith in the Black
A lively panel discussion recently took place at Howard University on the role that faith and science have played in the black community in America. The members of the panel were Richard Dawkins, Anthony Pinn, Sikivu Hutchenson, Todd Stiefel and Mark Hatcher. Part of the publicity on the DVD cover states that "Faith has traditionally played a significant role among African Americans, while science has been marginalized. It is time to confront the issues that have kept too many Blacks out of the halls of science and confined to the pews."
