Sioux Falls Free Thinkers
July 2015 Newsletter #044
Four weeks of July report.

In July we had 3 meetings. Two at Tomacelli's Pizza and one at Imperial Gardens Chinese Restaurant. Attendance was very light at best. Seems we need to offer something different in terms of entertainment or discussion. We'd appreciate any reasonable suggestions.

We now have 125 members and about 150 non-members on our mailing list.

Our Sioux Falls Scientists billboard project with 6 static billboards went up July 6th on Minnesota Ave, and with 1 digital billboard going up on South Cliff Ave at 10th St. A second 6 static billboards went up on West 12th St on July 20th. The theme of these billboards is to promote the value of Science and expose Science Denial. The billboards are below in a short animation.

The response to the billboards has been really good. You can see the continuing accelerated increase in visitors and views at the Sioux Falls Scientists website on our website performance charts. We seem to have hit a real sore spot with the creationists, non-intelligent designers and the Earth is 6,000 years old crowd, as well as the global warming denialists and the anti-vaccinationists. These people are ignorant in the extreme and haven't any idea what they are talking about. They've been sending me messages with pages of made-up science. They seem to be from the European dark ages. All knowledge about everything stopped with the publication of the Bible. (And so did millions of lives in Crusades and Inquisitions.) I'll share some of their illogical unsupported ramblings at our next meeting on Saturday evening the 15th at Spezia Italian Restaurant. It should be great fun.

So far we've had 13,324 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Free Thinkers website and roughly the same number go on to visit at least one or more of our other websites. (Total visitor count is 39,603 for all websites.) Over 165,396 pages across all websites have been viewed. See the Free Thinkers Website Performance chart at Unique Visitor Chart and the NEW Total Pages Viewed Chart . They will always be the latest charts. Our unique visitor growth and the large number of pages visited indicates a continued interest in all Sioux Falls Free Thinkers websites; Free Thinkers, Atheists, Scientists, Zoologists, and Feminists.

We're also continuing to maintain a Member Websites News Links page. This page has links to all the latest news, statistics and major information pages on all our websites. Putting this one page link in your Internet favorites will give you quick access to all the latest news about Sioux Falls Free Thinkers, Atheism, Humanism, Evolution Science, Global Warming, Climate Change, Animal Intelligence, Feminism, Women's Rights, Women's Equality, the continued Abuse of Women, and where women can get help to stop domestic abuse and domestic violence. All the links are there on one page. The page makes keeping up to date with the Free Thinkers community pretty easy.

Also as a convenience for website visitors we added a Latest News All Websites page (news from the last 7 days) and a Latest Pages All Websites page. Just making it all the easier to keep up to date on the latest news and other new information on the websites.

We have Total Page Views counters for all 815 of our website pages. These are the Total Page Views going back to the very first day the websites went up. Visitors can now see the interest level people have had over time for all the different pages. (Please keep in mind that new pages will have low page counts to start.)

There are over 100 new movies and courses to choose from. Should be enough to keep people thinking for a while. By the way all the movies and courses have been reviewed by the Webmaster of the Free Thinkers. We never put anything up that hasn't been watched or read at least once.
