Mythicist Milwaukee (http://www.mythicistmilwaukee.com) is a group dedicated to studying the mythicist position - researching the parallels between ancient civilizations' beliefs and today's modern religious practices. Our goal? To take some of the complicated research presented by the best in the business and distill it into easy-to-digest pieces of information that make you say, "Really? I didn't know that. I want to learn more." We want to inspire you to question. To inspire you to dig deeper. To find the origins of the beliefs shared by many all over the world today.
Mythicist Milwaukee is hosting an educational conference in Milwaukee on April 25, 2015. The event will feature three prominent secular scholars - including Dr. Richard Carrier, Hemant Mehta and James Kirk Wall.
This project is for development of a logo for the event. It should contain:
Event Name: Mythinformation Conference
Date: April 25, 2015
Tagline that can be used or removed from the logo when needed: "Is faith rooted in fiction?"
Create awareness and interest in the Mythinformation Conference, the date and what it's about.
What does "Is faith rooted in fiction?" mean?
Mythicist Milwaukee, along with the event's guest speakers, have many examples and scholarly research that shows that today's modern religious beliefs have evolved from earlier mythological stories throughout the years. The conference will explore the origins of modern religion and give skeptics more information to back up their arguments that modern religion borrows beliefs and stories from other, older religions and myths.
