Welcome to the Lake Superior Freethinkers
Upcoming MeetingsDec 2013: Dr. James B. Lyttle from the University of Minnesota Duluth will speak on the topic, "Having fun with religion." Since 1996, Dr. Lyttle (pronounced Little) has been investigating the effective and responsible use of humor in persuasion. He has looked at its use in advertising, politics, therapy, and now religion. Growing up in Canada, Jim was raised as a skeptic and attended a different church every Sunday for several years. Although he is not mad at religion or believers, he is certain that religious beliefs are not true. As a scholar, he opposes adhering to positions that do not stand up to critical inquiry. He has been professing at American universities since earning his doctorate in 2001 at York University (Toronto). Lively presentations and authoritative information make his appearances popular on and off campus. Dr. Lyttle will discuss the use of humor by freethinkers to challenge religion over the ages and suggest ways it might be used by the Lake Superior Freethinkers. His qualifications can be reviewed at www.JimLyttle.com any time.
