The November opportunity to be social with SWiFT is:
A NIGHT OF UNBELIEF, November 19: 7 PM
Four Points Sheraton Hotel, 8900 Kildeer Court, Brown Deer, WI, (map: http://snipurl.com/1f... )
Executive director of the Council for Secular Humanism and editor of Free Inquiry magazine Tom Flynn will present "Who Are These Doubters, Anyway? The Demography of Unbelief"
You've seen the various religion polls and the reported percentages of unbeliever--and the polls vary widely. Which surveys are reliable? Which are skewed? In a lavishly illustrated presentation Tom will explore how sociologists and pollsters have measured religious belief and unbelief from the mid-twentieth century to today, complete with all the controversies and scandals. What do polls on religion really mean? How many of those "no religious preference" people are really atheists?
Come one, come all!
