The keynote speaker for the conference is Thomas Altizer, professor emeritus, State University of New York at Stony Brook. His presentation, “The Groundlessness of America,” is Friday, April 27 at 9 a.m. Clark Butler, professor of philosophy and director of the Human Rights Institute, says Altizer is “The most creative American theologian of the last half of the 20th century. He appeared on the cover of Time Magazine in 1966 and is still publishing at 84 years of age. He gained celebrity status as the author of The Gospel of Christian Atheism (1965) and as the most prominent and radical figure of the death of God movement in the counterculture of the 60’s.”
