Come join us as we host award-winning writer and author Guy P. Harrison. He will present an upbeat and hopeful talk on how skeptics can be more successful in discouraging irrational belief. Harrison will offer practical tips for having positive and productive interactions with believers. He will detail some of the mistakes most people make when discussing or debating gods; the importance of knowing something about brain evolution, cognitive biases, how vision and memory work; the need for humility in the skeptic; and the single most effective way to promote nonbelief worldwide.
Harrison is an “expert blogger” for Psychology Today and the author of six highly acclaimed bestsellers that promote science and reason. His new book is Good Thinking: What you need to know to be smarter, safer, wealthier, and wiser. Other books are: Race and Reality; 50 Popular Beliefs That People Think are True; Think: Why you should question everything; 50 Simple Questions for Every Christian; and 50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God.
