Tallinn old town is a UNESCO world heritage site. The medieval structures and buildings of Tallinn were not damaged by World Wars. The beautiful historic city west of Baltic Sea is the capital of Estonia, (a member of the European Union) considered to be one of the least religious countries in Europe. Estonians are proud of their unbelief. According to the census of 2000, only 29% of the total population consider themselves as adherents of some religion. Eurobarometer poll in 2005 found that only 16% of the Estonian population believed in any god. With this number, Estonia is at the top of the list of non-belief in god or religion.

Organizer RATIONALIST INTERNATIONAL

Organizer of Rationalist Conference at Tallinn - Subsidy for 50 Baltic & Finnish delegates

Rationalist International has its head quarters in Helsinki, Finland. It was started in 1995 in India as a forum for rationalist ideas and positions of world-wide concern. It aims at representing the rationalist view where public opinion is formed and making the voice of reason heard and considered, where decisions are taken which will shape our future. It organises conferences, lectures, youth camps  and workshops, publishes books, e-books and other multi-media programmes. It aims at connecting together rationalists, humanists, freethinkers, skeptics, atheists and secularists. 

Rationalist Affirmation: Rationalism is a world view based on scientific attitude and a humane value system free from any religion, dogma and arbitrary assumption of authority. Rationalists value human heritage and civilisation, and consider art, literature and culture as carriers of it. Rationalists strive to establish a society free from religious, racial, national, ethnic, caste or gender prejudices. Rationalists aim at a free, democratic, tolerant society, respecting critical inquiry, spirit of reform, dialogue, rights of individuals, responsibility to fellow beings, free speech and human rights. Rationalists care for the future of the planet earth, our environment, and good use of science and technology.

Sanal Edamaruku is the founder and President of Rationalist International.
