The Central New York Humanist Association welcomes guest speaker Dr. Frank H. Wind on Sunday, August 3rd from 3:00-5:00pm. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served at 3:00 and the program will begin at 3:15pm.


“Noah’s Flood and other Flood Myths as seen by a Geologist and Storyteller” is a discussion of worldwide flood myths and their possible kinship to the Genesis flood. Purported evidence for a flood of biblical proportions will be reviewed. We will also pay a visit to Noah’s Ark in Petersburg, Kentucky.

Dr. Frank H Wind is a geologist and professional storyteller. He has a Ph. D from Florida State University and retired from Texaco USA after serving for 22 years as a micropaleontologist and reservoir geologist. After retiring and moving to the NYS Capital District, he was drawn to the craft of storytelling and performs with his wife, Dee Lee Wind, as “Frank-Lee Speaking.” Frank is a member of the Executive Committee of the Capital District Humanist Society and the editor of their Newsletter.  Frank’s interest in this subject comes from attending at an early age “Inherit the Wind” on Broadway and later in life, reading the writings of a learned Scotsman, Hugh Miller.
