Alright, I’ll admit I don’t know what they plan to teach or research… but at least their goals are promising?

The Atheist Centre [in India] will open the country’s first atheism university and research centre, coinciding with the centenary celebrations of social activist Saraswathi Gora on Wednesday.
The centre had been promoting a casteless society with a scientific outlook to help remove superstitions on a path shown by popular atheist Goparaju Ramachandra Rao (Gora).

No castes? Less superstition? More science? Sounds good so far… but I’d love to hear more information about it if anyone can provide some.
