The conference “Gods & Politics” was held in Copenhagen, Denmark, june 18-20, 2010, at the Royal Danish Library also known as “The Black Diamond”. This prime venue was the perfect frame around this fascinating and stimulating event.
As the name implies, one focus of the conference will be on religion and politics – what challenges do we as non-believers face today, and do we have a strong enough voice in the debate? But the conference is much broader than that, and we have a fantastic line-up of speakers from all around the world and covering many different fields. You can look forward to presentations by some of the most influential psychologists, skeptics, philosophers and scientist in the world – including Richard Dawkins (personal page), James Randi (US), and PZ Myers (US).
I recommend The Selfish Gene (PDF), The God Delusion and The Blind Watchmaker by the most famous Richard Dawkins.
