What is Big Think?  

We are Big Idea Hunters…

We live in a time of information abundance, which far too many of us see as information overload. With the sum total of human knowledge, past and present, at our fingertips, we’re faced with a crisis of attention: which ideas should we engage with, and why? Big Think is an evolving roadmap to the best thinking on the planet — the ideas that can help you think flexibly and act decisively in a multivariate world.

A word about Big Ideas and Themes — The architecture of Big Think

Big ideas are lenses for envisioning the future. Every article and video on bigthink.com and on our learning platforms is based on an emerging “big idea” that is significant, widely relevant, and actionable. We’re sifting the noise for the questions and insights that have the power to change all of our lives, for decades to come. For example, reverse-engineering is a big idea in that the concept is increasingly useful across multiple disciplines, from education to nanotechnology.

Themes are the seven broad umbrellas under which we organize the hundreds of big ideas that populate Big Think. They include New World Order, Earth and Beyond, 21st Century Living, Going Mental, Extreme Biology, Power and Influence, and Inventing the Future.

Daylight Atheism Has Moved to Big Think

October 4, 2011, 7:29 PM

Change has come at last! As of today, Daylight Atheism is officially moving to its new home at Big Think. I'm planning to hit the ground running, so be sure to go there to see all my new posts.

For the moment, www.daylightatheism.org still goes to this site, but expect that to change very soon. Within a few days, I'm going to put in a redirect that will send anyone who types that URL to my blog's new address at Big Think, which, again, is:


The site you're reading right now is going to remain up as an archive. Since the front page is going to become a redirect, if you want to browse the old posts, bookmark http://www.daylightatheism.org/archive. That's a stable address that won't change, and my Big Think blog will have a link to it as well.

I'm also going to put in a redirect for the RSS feed, so in theory, RSS subscribers should be seamlessly redirected to the new site. If that turns out not to work, I'll put up another post with the new feed address. Again, expect this to happen within a few days.

Hope to see you on the new site! Come and say hello.
