Centre for Inquiry

Post by Admin on Tue Jan 03, 2012 1:02 am


Here is a seminar that nails their views to the mast of their aims
CFI UK's primary aim is education, with the focus on the following three areas:
(i) the application of science and/or reason to questions regarding religion and the supernatural (e.g. questions about the divine, parapsychological questions, etc.)
(ii) the application of science and/or reason to pressing contemporary ethical dilemmas and social/political problems (e.g. stem-cell research, global warming)
(iii) the question of what is, and is not, good science (e.g. is intelligent design, or cold fusion, or magnet therapy, good science?)
CFI UK is concerned to defend and promote academic freedom, particularly from unjust legal threats, and to promote science-based policy.

Of course teh seminar content lets you know that the open mindedness does not extend to any acceptance of mediums or psychics. The seminar is
BEYOND THE VEIL A CLOSER LOOK AT SPIRITS, MEDIUMS AND GHOSTS

Hmm open mindedness unlikely with the crew involved
