Center for Inquiry Indiana, 350 Canal Walk, Suite A
Indianapolis, IN 46202
After the resounding success of CFI-Indiana's September conference on comparing and critiquing the traditional views of both religious and nonreligious people, many attendees expressed an interest in learning more from each of the three experts who spoke. In response, we have scheduled three intensive full-day sessions to give those who want more in-depth knowledge on the subjects a chance to spend generous time with each of these learned scholars. Join us as we begin a fresh exploration of religion with Ibn Warraq, a scholar of the Koran and Islam; Robert Price, a biblical scholar; and John Shook, a philosopher of religion and naturalism.
Ibn Warraq, Ph.D.,
Islamic scholar and a leading figure in Koranic
criticism, is a senior fellow at the Center for
Inquiry-Transnational. He is the author of five important
and distinguished books on Islam and Koranic criticism,
including the classic Why I am Not a Muslim, The
Origins of the Koran, What the Koran Really Says,
and the forthcoming Which Koran?
