This will be your opportunity to ask nationally recognized experts about some of the central ideas and current issues that will shape our future. As rational people, it is our responsibility to try to ensure that society marshals its best resources for the difficult times that lie ahead. This includes the struggle against the anti-rational forces that continue to dominate our society. Science is a powerful ally. Its methods and the body of knowledge it has created defines the success of the human species. Be there! JP
