2012 Rhine River Cruise
The Center for Inquiry Travel Club is pleased to announce that Richard Dawkins will be speaking on its 2012 Rhine River Cruise, joining human rights activist Maryam Namazie and CFI's president & CEO, Ronald A. Lindsay.The cruise will take place from April 29 to May 6, 2012. This is a riverboat cruise-on the Super Ship (S.S.) Antoinette, "the most luxurious river cruise ship in the world"-so space is very limited.
The Rhine River Valley is justly celebrated both for its natural beauty and its history. The Rhine's imposing castles and fortresses, erected over a millennium, provide a dramatic testament to its history, mute witnesses to centuries of trade, intellectual exchange, and the occasional clash of arms. The Rhine has also inspired some of the world's most moving art, music, and literature. The Rhine is a fitting setting for an intellectual feast. Lively discussions and stimulating presentations on science, religion, ethics, and the challenges facing secularism-all taking place in comfort amidst visually stunning locations-will provide guests with an unforgettable experience.
