unTapped Topic: Are Religious People Ignorant?
Our topic this week comes from Barb! Our discussion will take place at Shorts Brewery this Thursday at 7pm.
Are religious people ignorant? A new study shows that religious people are some of the most ignorant on matters of religion and faith. On the flip side, agnostics and atheists tend to be some of the most educated about faith.

So, what do you think? Are non-believers more knowledgeable than believers? Why do you believe/not believe this? Have you ever met someone whose confidence in their faith exceeded their actual understanding of that faith? Have you ever met someone whose knowledge about a faith was the major factor in their rejection of that same faith?
Join us this Thursday at Shorts for a discussion of religious literacy (or the lack thereof).
In order to live man must believe in that for which he lives.unTapped is a conversation about faith and spirituality. There are many people frustrated by being forced to think of faith in the same old patterns, and would prefer to explore spirituality in different ways.

Anything goes here. No matter where you are or who you are, we want to hear from you. Feel free to join in the conversation!
You can also join us in person, every Thursday night at Short's Brewing Company in Downtown Bellaire, MI.
