Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris are two of the world’s most respected scientists, authors and biggest draws in secular humanism. They will share the stage with Matt Dillahunty, a former southern Baptist who spent a big part of his life studying to become a minister. Since finding his way out of religion, Dillahunty gained worldwide fame by hosting the Austin, Texas all access call in show, The Atheist Experience. He now travels the world debating & lecturing on subjects primarily relating to belief in God and skepticism.
This event will feature a discussion about Science & Reason. How do we become more scientifically literate? How can we better educate society to value skepticism over faith? These are some of the themes that will be addressed.
