What others are saying

  • I have spoken at each of the five Imagine No Religion conferences and I have to say that every year, they have somehow gotten increasingly better. I’m not sure how they do it, but Bill and Kathy manage to invite speakers who attract the types of people who greatly appreciate the thought-provoking ideas and close connection one has come to expect from such a gathering of minds. Despite the growing numbers of attendees and the changing venues, INR has managed to maintain a close and personal connection between the speakers and the attendees. INR has quickly become the go-to event for secular thought in North America.

  • I was honored to attend the ImagineNoReligion3 conference. I was particularly honored because I watched the vast majority of speeches at the conference and the quality of speakers stood out. Indeed there were several speakers who I had not heard of before that struck me as having new and substantive contributions to make. This conference does not have the "been there, done that" quality of some conferences.

  • INR is a great conference. If you have chance to go - go! I was treated very well, there were terrific speakers, and the atmosphere was warm and friendly.

  • Yet another wonderful INR. Great people. Exceptionally well run event. And a profound sense of community. I'm already looking forward to next year.

  • It's been an amazing couple days, met some amazing people and had a wonderful time. I really loved the intimate feel of the conference. If I had a small contribution to everybody having a good time I am very happy about it. I for one was really impressed with how varied the talks were and with how friendly and down to earth everyone was. I want to thank you again for giving me this opportunity and putting up with all the drama of me getting there. I hope I mingled to your satisfaction.

    I am heading to Vancouver right now to see some of your beautiful country, but keep in touch I'll be home at the end of the month. This was really amazing, I am very happy I got to meet you and hope to see you again sometime.

  • I knew the Imagine No Religion conference would be an event to remember, not to mention a lot of fun, nor was I disappointed. The single thing that struck me most powerfully was that, despite a disparity of opinions on various topics, the speakers and attendees formed one big, happy crew! It was a delight to meet in person various leaders, scholars, podcasters, etc., whose works I had read and who had interviewed me. Instant friendships! What a cast of characters! And, as always, it was a great treat and privilege to enter into conversation with the attendees, learning of their journeys, experiences, and concerns. And to embarrass them one more time, I am amazed and grateful to Bill and Kathy for their Herculean work putting these things together!

  • INR conferences are wonderful relaxed opportunities to hear a great set of speakers with a schedule that provides that rare treat: ample time for lectures and questions, followed by opportunities for discussion with a wonderfully diverse crowd of interested and interesting people.  The organization is meticulous, and speakers and audience members are taken care of with respect and generosity from the moment of arrival until the moment of departure.

    Lawrence Krauss
  • Imagine No Religion 3 was a remarkably contentful and exciting event. Almost every talk was really excellent and none were bad, and—a rarity at such conferences—I would guess that almost everybody attended almost all the talks. A sea of intensely interested happy faces, reacting constructively and intelligently to everything. There was no down side. The food was better than I had anticipated.

  • Imagine No Religion stands out among the many (wonderful) conventions, and I think it's partially because Bill and Kathy Ligertwood have the pulse of the attendees and speakers.  There's plenty of information, but there's also humor, heart, storytelling and a real connection with the audience.  There are no lulls on the schedule.  No "meh" items on the roster.  And INR maintains a Quality Over Quantity vibe, realizing that the audience wants to be engaged without being overwhelmed.  I also see INR as an event which respects the time and pocketbooks of its attendees, providing a premier conference value without becoming cost-prohibitively exclusive.  That's a tough balance, but Bill, Kathy and the INR crew pull it off.  Finally, the conference staff (and many in attendance) have become dear friends, and my connection with these wonderful people may never have happened without Imagine No Religion.  It's truly an honor to have been a part of iT.

  • To my mind, INR is the best "nonbelief" meeting going.  There are great speakers, they are given enough time to speak expansively and answer questions, the audience is curious and smart, and the schedule relaxed enough to permit plenty of interaction and discussion. It's a happy mixture of science, secularism, and philosophy. Don't miss it!
