Are fundamentalist families taking over? Come and discuss our cover story at the RSA

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

We're co-hosting an event at London's RSA on 15 April featuring Eric Kaufmann, who we interviewed for our current cover story, "Battle of the babies". Kaufmann will be talking about his new book Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth?, which looks closely at demographic data which suggests that the number of fundamentalists of all stripes is set to increase greatly in the coming decades, just as falling birth rates among secularists and the moderately religious look set to bring about a decrease in their numbers.

At the RSA on 15 April, at 6pm, Kaufmann will be discussing this with our commissioning editor Laurie Taylor. If you found our cover story interesting, this is your chance to come and hear more from Kaufmann, and ask him any questions you may have (it's already generated some lively debate on this blog). The event is free and open to all, but you do need to register at the RSA site for a ticket - in our experience these events at the RSA can fill up quite quickly, so it's a good idea to do that now to avoid disappointment.
