Our world is plagued with unreason. From left and right wing ideologues to extremist religious organizations, the enlightenment is under siege. As much as I enjoy talking to other like minded individuals about how wrong everyone else is in there fervent belief in unreasonable truth claims, I do not see what good that does in and of itself. I want to discuss how we excise the cancer of unreason from our societies, with the goal of building a better future for humanity. I am truly at a loss as to how this can be done. Not only do we face the unreasoned believers, but their defenders. These relativist fence sitters accuse us of being dogmatic, of treating science as a religion, of being just as fundamentalist as terrorists and the American Evangelists. So again I ask, how do we respond, how do we fight back and how do we win back civilization?
