In this CFI-sponsored talk Dr. Boghossian argues that faith-based processes are unreliable and unlikely to lead one to the truth. Since our goal as knowers is to have more true beliefs than false ones, faith, as a process for getting to the truth, should be abandoned in favor of other, more reliable processes.

"Peter Boghossian's lecture on the deficiencies of faith as a means of acquiring knowledge is lucid, witty, and eminently persuasive. It is a much needed antidote to fuzzy thinking and irrational beliefs."

Ronald A. Lindsay, President & CEO of CFI

“We need more educators like Peter Boghossian.”

Sam Harris, bestselling author of “The End of Faith” and “Letter to a Christian Nation"

“[Peter Boghossian’s] lecture is one of the best single summaries of how to think clearly I’ve ever seen.”

Michael Shermer, Founder of the Skeptics Society and Editor in Chief of Skeptic Magazine
