CFI United Kingdom

CFI UK’s primary aim is education. CFI UK is concerned to defend and promote academic freedom, particularly from unjust legal threats, and to promote science-based policy.

They put on regular talks and events focusing on all of the above – from, say, exposing medical quackery (Ben Goldacre and Simon Singh), to examining the relationship between science and religion (recent debate between Alister McGrath and Stephen Law, and upcoming debate between Rev. John Polkinghorne and David Papineau) to examining the roots causes of the Holocaust and how best to prevent such catastrophes in future (a likely Autumn 2010 fixture). Fascinating, informative and sometimes provocative talks from leading experts and commentators in their fields.
