You've heard of Galileo, right? He was the guy who went against astronomers of the time, as well as public opinion, and insisted that the earth was not the center of the universe. After a life of persecution, in the end it turned out that he was right.
You probably haven't heard of Lindi or Jonah who go against public opinion claiming that Elvis is still alive and living on the planet Hounddogian, in the constellation Bluesuede. When questioned about their odd beliefs, Lindi and Jonah confidently reply, "You know, people thought Galileo was nuts, too."
While you don't know Lindi or Jonah, you most likely know of people like them who hold bizarre beliefs and call upon the "Galileo Defense" to validate their own reasoning ability and cause you to doubt yours. Remind yourself, and these people, that for every Galileo, there are millions of cranks, quacks, and wackos, and statistically speaking, they are one of the latter.

If you spent your life assuming "God" was the answer to all of life's biggest questions, but can no longer believe, you might have many questions that begin with the phrase, "If there is no God..." If there is no God, how did we get here? If there is no God, what's the point of life? If there is no God, where does our morality come from"? If there is no God, won't the world collapse in anarchy with murdering, coveting thy neighbor's wife, and eating shellfish? These are just some of the common questions to which there are good answers. These courses will help you build a strong foundational secular worldview based in science and reason.
