CF: Challenges to Religious and Moral Belief: Disagreement and Evolution

September 6-8, 2012
Purdue University

The conference will focus on three main challenges to religious and moral beliefs:
• Widespread interpersonal disagreement among intellectual peers on religious and on moral topics provides reason to doubt these beliefs;
• Belief-source disagreement on moral issues between commonsense moral intuitions and religious belief sources raises doubts about both methods of belief formation;
• Evolutionary accounts of the origins of our religious and moral beliefs create doubts about these beliefs by undermining our confidence in the reliability of their sources.
