In keeping with this month’s theme of religion in the classroom, The Revisionaries, a documentary about the Texas State Board of Education’s textbook selection process, is showing at the Somerville Theater as part of the Boston Independent Film Festival on Monday, April 30 at 6:45 PM.
For a sample of what to expect, see former Texas SBOE Chairman Don McLeroy on the Colbert Report a few days ago.
The Texas Monthly published a summary of the rave reviews for the film, which premiered last Saturday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
We should try to meet up in front of the theater at about 6:30.
Tickets can be purchased online or at the box office. RSVP on Facebook.
P.S. If you still feel some of those pesky brain cells clogging up your cranium, there is still time to see American Juggalo tonight at the same theater.

This Sunday, a Harvard phd will be delivering a talk called “Evolution: Bankrupt Science. Creationism: Science You Can Bank On” at 11AM and 7PM at the Longwood Galleria Conference Center.
This is a weekly church group hosting the talk. The Boston Atheists are attending the 7pm lecture, and the Boston Skeptics are also attending and/or distributing pro-evolution literature (plus perhaps literature explaining that evolution does not equal atheism).
Here’s the church’s event listing:
Prior to the lecture, many Boston Skeptics will be picnicking on Spectacle Island in the Boston Harbor Islands. We’ll take the 1pm ferry from Long Wharf (cheap and you can buy tickets online! ), snack, play games, maybe swim in the ocean, and head back by 4:30 or so. Everyone is invited!

Audio from the first Boston Skeptics in the Pub is now available! I’ve uploaded it to Google Video along with video of Mike the Mad Biologist’s slides. The quality (of the A/V, not of the presentation) is a bit poor, for which I apologize. But, it should be good enough for you to follow, for those of you who are fans of Mike’s but couldn’t be there (in the future please consider moving to Boston).
Here’s the link!
