Our Next Religious Revolution | Daniel Burke | TEDxFoggyBottom

One in three millennials don't identify with an institutional religion, yet the majority still believe in the existence of a God. CNN religion editor Daniel Burke thinks this trend is catalyzing a modern religious revolution that may occur sooner than we think. Daniel Burke is the editor of CNN's award-winning religion section, CNN Belief, which was named the Best Online Religion Section in 2014 and 2015 by the Religion News Association. He has been honored by the American Academy of Religion for his in-depth reporting on religion and in 2016 won top prize in the categories of feature writing and news analysis. He has covered a multitude of topics, from Pope Francis’ period of exile in Argentina to the religious and moral questions that arose after he narrowly avoided a train crash. Burke graduated from Columbia University, earning an MS in journalism and an MA in comparative religion. Before that, he attended Georgetown University where a course on “The Problem of God” set him on the path to religion reporting. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
