October 3, 2013


cfi summit 500 2013

Last week,

USA Today
reported on a groundbreaking study

conducted by researchers at Trinity College, in conjunction with CFI, that provides brand new insights on the worldviews of American college students. It
has a lot of good news for the future of secularism, and at the upcoming CFI Summit in Tacoma – October 24-27 –you can be among the first to learn even more about nonreligious college-age Americans.


At the CFI Summit, study co-author Barry Kosmin will present all-new findings that delve into the beliefs of the rising secular generation!

The first report from the Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society and Culture at Trinity shows that college-age Americans

divide nearly evenly between three distinct worldviews

: Religious, Spiritual, and Secular. That was surprising enough, but they also found that most of those claiming no religious affiliation (the now-famous
“nones”) are not “searching” or uncommitted believers, but largely atheistic or indifferent to religion.Read the story from USA Today.

But there’s much more to unveil.
Register now
for the CFI Summit, and you can be on hand as we go even deeper, as new findings specifically about young secular Americans arerevealed for the first time anywhere!
