Save the date and buy the book for our special event on Sunday, June 26, 2016, at 11:00am at the Ethical Humanist Society building, 1906 Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia PA, 19103.
Join Delaware Valley Americans United and the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia at 11:00am on Sunday, June 26, when we cohost Jeffrey Selman of the Georgia Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, author of “God Sent Me: A Textbook Case on Evolution and Creationism.”
Jeffrey Selman, President of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, Atlanta, Georgia Chapter is author of God Sent Me: A Textbook Case on Evolution. It documents an actual case of citizen activism intended to preserve constitutional protections regarding the conflict between evolution science and religion-based creationism. When the public school board in Cobb County, Georgia, glued a disclaimer against evolution into the county’s new science textbooks, the separation of church and state and academic integrity were both violated. Jeffrey, along with several other like-minded citizens and the ACLU, marched into battle with a lawsuit against the forces undermining science education and the human right of individual belief recognized both in the US & Georgia Constitutions.
The event will be held at the Ethical Society building, 1906 Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, PA, 19103.

“God Sent Me is the account of one citizen making himself heard and taking action to preserve constitutional protections in the context of the conflict between evolution science and religion-based creationism. When the public school board in Cobb County, Georgia, glued a disclaimer against evolution into the county’s new science textbooks, the implications were clear—separation of church and state and accurate education were at risk. Author Jeffrey Selman, along with several other like-minded citizens and the ACLU, marched into battle with a lawsuit against the forces undermining science education. This narrative shines a light on just what it takes to protect freedom and reminds the average citizen to “Wake up and get to work!””
After Jeffrey’s talk, the EHSP will host a short coffee break, and we will follow this with a showing of the 20-minute clip, Penn & Teller’s “Bullshit” episode on “Creation in Cobb County.”
Please join us for this special event! Please pre-order your book, as our speaker is flying in from Georgia and won’t have many copies on hand to sell.
