Islam 101: A Prelude to a Primer

Since 9-11, Islam and Muslims have become a far more visible part of the American landscape. The movement towards increased visibility of secularism and secular Americans through the skeptical and atheists movements has also been a recent phenomenon. What happens when the two collide? Heina Dadabhoy, former Muslim and current atheist, will illuminate what you think you know about Islam, what you wish you knew, and how you can better address the faith to which a quarter of the world's population adheres.

Heina has recently begun writing a book, The Skeptic's Guide to Islam, after funding for it passed on her KickStarter page:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/skepticsguidetoislam/a-skeptics-guide-to-islam

Heina will be stopping in Kansas City on her way to Skepticon, so don't miss out on this great chance to learn a little about Islam, free of anti-Islamic and pro-Islamic sentiments: just the facts!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
