Atheists and agnostics gather in Springfield for 'Skepticon' event
In Springfield, Missouri, thousands from around the country are converging upon the city to talk about religion, or perhaps the lack of it. Atheists and agnostics are taking part in a convention dubbed "Skepticon," and have assembled the largest event of its kind ever.
Skepticon is now in its third year and has grown larger every year. Event organizers reportedly chose Springfield for a host city because of its reputation as the "Buckle in the Bible Belt."
During the convention, atheists and agnostics will reportedly share why they lost their faith or have not been able to form it in the first place.
The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every walk of life, for careers in ministry.
