The Course of Reason

Spreading Secularism Like the World Depends on It

June 26, 2012 Jessika Griffin

This post is inspired by a particular gentleman who stopped by our table at the farmer’s market on Saturday. He described himself as an atheist and skeptic. I began to doubt his skepticism when he started talking about how the only presidents to be assassinated in office weren’t masons, but that’s a different issue. While he was glad that we, the Secular Alliance at IU, were active, he said he could never really support using energy on something like that.

Music Monday: The Vandals “People that are Going to Hell”

CFI Leadership Stories

June 7, 2012 Dren Asselmeier

Center for Inquiry On Campus (and its predecessor, the Campus Freethought Alliance) has been connecting students with knowledge, resources, and other leading secular activists and scientists for over fifteen years. We believe that it is our job to inspire students and to educate the secular leaders of tomorrow so that they can expand on the limits of our knowledge and bring reason to the coming generations. A big part of how we fulfill this mission of being a jumping-off point for young freethinkers is by holding our annual student leadership conference. It is a chance for students to come together in real life and relate leadership experiences, share how-to tips, make connections, and inspire each other. Several students who attended the 2011 Student Leadership Conference have offered to share their stories so that others can get an idea of what to expect, why it is important, and how you can help. This is one of those stories.
