Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Do you consider yourself an agnostic? Then Uncle Sam wants YOU! Okay, not Uncle Sam. A couple of Canadian researchers want you to help them with a project and all it requires is filling out a survey for them. Dr. Allan Cheyne, psychologist at the University of Waterloo, and his research partner Fred Britton of the Centre for Inquiry have requested help in finding more agnostics (as opposed to atheists — yes, I know, some argue that they’re the same thing but this is really not the time or place for rehashing that dispute) to fill out their survey. They write:

We’re conducting a web survey of nonbelievers (atheists, agnostics, doubters, sceptics etc.) So far,

We’ve had a good response, with over 1700 usable submissions. We’ve got lots of atheists, but we do not have as many agnostics as we would like.

We’d like to ask for your assistance on this project in the following ways:

1. If you are an agnostic, please do the survey.

2. If you are acquainted with people you know or think may be agnostics, please make the existence of the project and the URL of the survey known to them.

3. If you have any suggestions for finding more agnostics, websites, blogs, organizations etc.,

please send us your suggestions at fwbritton@yahoo.com.

4. Reposting this request anywhere you think it will be helpful.

The survey is here: http://arts.uwaterloo.ca/~acheyne/RAVS/RAVSINFO.html
