Rationalist journal announcement

Sanal Edamaruku is launching the Rationalist magazine

Embarking on a great journey

You are invited to join me and embark on this journey as a Founding Subscriber.

With 2014 just around the corner, it is time for an exciting announcement. One of the first things the New Year is going to bring will be a new magazine!

I am pleased to inform that we are launching - with great thrill and anticipation - an English language quarterly journal namely "Rationalist".  It will come as Internet magazine as well as tactile and tangible object printed on good old paper. 

I like to see this magazine as a ship starting out to new horizons.  As the captain, I am joined by an international crew of brilliant and committed rationalist thinkers and writers spanning over several continents. We are striving for a world without borders where reason, science and human rights come out on top and chase away the shadows that superstition, fundamentalism and intolerance that are still casting over human lives. 

Welcome to everyone sailing under the same wind. Let us forget about nomenclatures. We believe in openness and cooperation and in the power of dynamic individuals to change the world. 

Join us now and help us setting sail.

- Sanal Edamaruku

Exploring a wider base

The idea behind Rationalist magazine is to create an open forum of intellectual honesty beyond different names that individual groups use for the broad movement - Rationalism, Freethought, Secularism, Humanism, Skepticism, Atheism, Scientific Temper and many others. These names are dear to us based on our history, tradition or culture, and our focus of activities. Rationalist magazine wishes to explore our common objectives and common lines. World-class articles, well known columnists, in-dept studies, reports from around the world, announcements and reports of conferences and activities of all major organizations. Representing every branch of our movement, the Rationalist magazine will have an inclusive and participative approach - beyond borders.

How to join this historic venture?

We invite you to join the Rationalist magazine as a Founding Subscriber. Your support will stabilize the foundation of this venture. All Founding Subscribers will be acknowledged in the journal. There are other levels of subscriptions also. Subscribe here.
