The Age of American Unreason

I could not resist the title! That’s one of the items on the ‘menu’ at the upcoming 2007 Conference of the Center for Inquiry. The conference in New York City will take place Nov 9-11 at the New York Academy of Sciences.

 Themes will include:

  • The Age of American Unreason
  • The Next Islamic Enlightenment
  • Science and the Public
  • Student Freethinkers Speak Out
  • Secularism through History: from Spinoza to JFK

“The world is finally waking up to the dangers of religious faith.  Books defending reason and religious skepticism top the bestseller lists. Secular Muslims are standing up for freedom of thought.  The secular perspective has finally gained currency in the media and in cross-cultural dialogue.  Young freethinkers and secularists are organizing and speaking out on campuses, ready to carry the torch of secularism into the new millennium.”

 Be a part of this historic event. Register today!It sounds interesting.
