This coming Thursday, October 13, CFI-Pittsburgh has a special guest speaker for its regular monthly lecture meeting – Dr. Mano Singham of Case-Western Reserve University. He will be discussing his new definition of atheism, and why he believes that atheism is winning. It should prove to be quite informative and interesting.
Mano Singham is a theoretical physicist and currently Director of UCITE (University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education) at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He is the author of three books: God vs. Darwin: The War Between Evolution and Creationism in the Classroom (2009),The Achievement Gap in US education: Canaries in the Mine (2005), and Quest for Truth: Scientific Progress and Religious Beliefs (2000).”
It might be of interest to get a feel for our speaker’s sensibilities by going to Dr. Singham’s blog. Even if you are not able to attend the meeting, you will find some interesting reading there.
Copies of his latest book will be available for purchase.
