Richard Dawkins’ Tour Stops in March, 2009

The author of The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins, will be heading to four colleges in America in early March.

He will be discussing “The Purpose of Purpose“:

We humans are obsessed with purpose. The question, “What is it for?” comes naturally to a species surrounded by tools, utensils and machines. For such artifacts it is appropriate, but then we go too far. We apply the “What is it for?” question to rocks, mountains, stars or the universe, where it has no place…

To get information on which schools he is visiting and when, check out the Secular Student Alliance website.

The tour is sponsored by the Secular Student Alliance, the Center for Inquiry and the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science.

    Every once in awhile, something comes along that makes me wish I hadn’t moved to Florida from Michigan. This is one of those rare occasions.

    Those interested in RD’s 2 March East Lansing appearance, tickets are free to MSU faculty, staff, students and retirees. Free tickets must be picked up in advance at the Wharton Center box office. Just picked up my two free tickets yesterday.

    Tickets already purchased!

    Once again, I feel fortunate to live in the same city as CASH–the Campus Atheists and Secular Humanists at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. Thanks for bringing Dawkins to town, guys!
