Ableson Religious Reconciliation Speaker: Dr. Scott Atran

February 4th 2013 - 7:30pm

Is religion a biological urge? What makes a belief sacred? What motivates a person to kill in the name of God?

These are just a few of the questions that will be addressed by Dr. Scott Atran when he delivers the keynote address for the first Ableson Religious Reconciliation Lecture beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 4 in the USAO Ballroom at the University of Science and Arts.

The event is free and open to the public.

Atran has traveled the world interviewing and, in some cases, living among known terrorists in order to better understand the motivations of those who kill in the name of God.

He published his findings in a book titled, Talking to the Enemy: Faith, Brotherhood, and the (Un)Making of Terrorists (2010).

More information about the event can be obtained by calling (405) 574-1362.
