Despite its name, the Faithbusters discussion series isn't about disproving religion.

Instead, organizers of the series hope to dispel stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding religions that Americans typically know little about. Islam is the topic of the first Faithbusters installment, tonight at 6:30 in the W.T. Young Library Auditorium.

"We hope to educate people on Islam and ourselves," said Yahya Ahmed, president of the Muslim Student Association, whose members will be discussing their faith at the event.
