Morality Without Gods: Part 2
Tuesday, March 3, 6:30 - 9:00 New York University
Across the planet with unjust wars, uncertainty & convulsions in people’s lives, belief in gods and religion is rising. Broad controversy and debate rages over god, atheism, faith, and science. Last November, an overflow crowd came out at NYU for Morality Without Gods: Part 1. Don’t miss Part 2, when 3 non-believers will discuss their views on:
- If you don’t believe in god, where do you get your morality from?
- Why is science not just “another belief system”?
- Could we/should we do away with belief in gods?
