Saturday, March 15th Hike

Hi Hiking Freethinkers,

The hike this Saturday, March 15th will be the Homestead Trail which I consider a moderately easy hike. There should be no ice or snow on the trail. It is one of the most interesting "city" hikes that I have come across. The hike starts from North Penrose Park then climbs up to the top of a ridge that winds around the east part of town, passing thru Village Seven and Old Farm. After several miles, the trail ends at Stetson Hills Blvd just a bit west of Powers Blvd.

Do you think that being a freethinker stops after you dismiss other people's supernatural notions? If so, think again. For every "Jesus is My Co-pilot" bumper sticker, there's one saying something like "I Slept with ET." When was the last time you took your sister-in-law to task for claiming that she had a paranormal experience after watching an episode of Montel? Join Steven Mahone, past president of the Freethinkers of Colorado Springs, board member of Colorado Citizens for Science, and long-time engineer for a discussion of these questions and many more. Then the next time you hear someone claim that Shania Twain has a paranormal thing for them you'll know it's probably just the "male enhancement" medication talking!

I'd like to invite you to a one-day regional skeptics conference on Saturday March 22nd called "skepticamp." It'll take place in CastleRock.
