Can people be good without God?
Interfaith debate seeks to find out
posted about 3 years ago
How do we define morality? Do people need God to be moral? Are good works behavioral, biological, or biblical? What does it mean to be human?
These questions and more will be answered at an Interfaith Debate sponsored by the Secular Student Alliance and the Orthodox Christian Fellowship at UMBC. Two presenters, with wildly different backgrounds and philosophies will face off on the topic of morality in the common interest of pursuing truth. Matt Dillahunty, president of the Atheist Community of Austin and host of The Atheist Experience show, will be discussing "The Source of Human Morality" with Father Hans Jacobse, an Antiochian Orthodox priest and head of the American Orthodox Institute.
This event is at 7 PM on 11/16, in the UMBC University Center ballroom. This event is fully free of charge, and open to the entire UMBC community and the public. There are limited seats available, so plan to arrive early. Come with an open mind, and be prepared to challenge your conceptions about human morality and to commonly seek the truth about what makes us human.
