RATIONALIST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 2019

Cambridge, UK, 27-28 July 2019

Time to discuss the perspective of a Rational World. Is it a dream, a utopia or our future?

Rationalists known by different names, or have a different focus of their activity  - Atheists,  Freethinkers, Humanists, Secularists, Skeptics, and Science Communicators - join together and discuss.

The major themes of the conference are:

One Law for All

The Future of Secularism

Esoterism and the Occult

Faith Healing and Evidence-based medicines

Civil Liberties of Atheists

Rational State - Dream, Utopia or Our Future?

Speakers illustrate from their own work and experience where they
think the boundary lies between reason and the irrational, between what is desirable and
destructive in human thought and activity, and to what extent the encouragement - or
suppression - of any kind of thought might be compatible with social well-being.

The agenda of the Rationalist International Conference 2019 is
broadly based, including politics, psychology, philosophy, religion, and science, with
an international cast of speakers and delegates.
