ING Interfaith Speakers Bureau: Religion—What is it Good for? 

The idea that religion is obsolete and incompatible with science and that society would be better off without it has now become widespread. In this panel, adherents of major world religions respond to this challenge, showing how their faith can fruitfully embrace contemporary concerns and insights and contribute to human betterment.

Throughout the event the panelists will entertain questions and have a discussion with the audience.
