Jimmy John'sIt's not often that I find wisdom at Jimmy John's. Tasty sandwiches, sure, but not usually wisdom. Today at Jimmy John's I was reading a sign on the wall while waiting for my lunch.

Humanist Education is Now Free (and you could even get credit for it!)

Share/Save

COHE LogoSo it's time to go back to school. While a tiny handful of universities do provide a class or two about humanism, most don't.

But the good news is that as of yesterday anyone with an Internet connection anywhere in the world can learn about humanism for free. What's more, you might even be able to get college credit for the courses.

The Continuum of Humanist Education (COHE) is the world's first online, interactive humanist educational program. The Institute for Humanist Studies debuted COHE in 2004 with rave reviews from students and humanist leaders around the world.

But until today, only the introductory courses on humanism were free. Level two classes used to cost users $10, and advanced level courses used to cost users $25.

Creation/Evolution Comics Déjà vu

Share/Save

Tree of KnowledgeSenior lecturer in history and philosophy of biology at University College London Dr. Joe Cain has posted some amazing political cartoons on the creation/evolution debate. The comics are from the late 1920s to the late 1930s. What's amazing about them is that the terms of the debate have changed so little in such a long time.

Check out the collection.
