ayn rand Rebirth of ReasonTM is an organization dedicated to the philosophy of Objectivism, a philosophy devoted to living on earth. The philosophy was developed by Ayn Rand, a novelist-philosopher in the 20th century.

RoR was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Santa Clara, CA. You can find more information about RoR by going here.

Rebirth of Reason refers to Ayn Rand's description of the Renaissance.
The Renaissance was specifically the rebirth of reason, the liberation of man's mind, the triumph of rationality over mysticism - a faltering, incomplete, but impassioned triumph that led to the birth of science, of individualism, of freedom. - Ayn Rand
The site is created to be a tool for bringing about a new Renaissance. Our purpose is to advance the philosophy of Objectivism.

We also seek to be a microcosm of the world we want to create. The rebirth of reason starts here. If we want to create a better world, we must start with ourselves. If we want a healthier culture, we have to create it here. If we want to promote reason, accomplishment, and happiness, we need only look to ourselves.

I have received criticism from some Objectivists about the approach I took in writing my book Morality Needs No God. There is a key decision that needs to made in approaching this subject.

Atheists in Foxholes
Posted by Michael E. Marotta on 7/25, 10:38am
A Congressional bill authorized the sale of the federal Mt. Soledad Memorial for veterans to a private association. That shunted aside an on-going lawsuit filed by the ACLU and the Jewish War Veterans. A privately-owned memorial for Christian soldiers should have a cross if they want.  The problem is that Jewish vetera...(Read more...)
