A Christian Humanist, a Secular Humanist, and a Philosopher: On God, The Big Questions, and Ending Human Trafficking

Thursday, May 17, 2018 -
7:00pm to 9:00pm
Ceremonial Hall, 4th Floor

From letters to a philosophical roadshow; a debate turned friendship. The latest collaboration between philosophically inclined Christian Andrew Murtagh and secular humanist Adam Lee, comes a fresh trifecta of inquiry, debate, and activism.

Andrew Murtagh and Adam Lee are both engineers, authors, and activists. Adrew's background is in biomedical engineering and he works in the med tech industry; Adam a software egineer working in that sector. In their free time, both blog at Patheos on the big questions; Andrew at Soapbox Redemption, Adam at Daylight Atheism. In their theological discord, they wrote a book, Meta, became friends, and have teamed up to end human trafficking.

Discussion will be moderated by Massimo Pigliucci, Ph.D., Professor of Philosophy at the City College of New York and author of Answers for Aristotle: How Science and Philosophy Can Lead Us to a More Meaningful Life.

You ask the questions! From metaphysics and morality to consciousness and free-will; abortion and healthcare to the just city. An eening of truth seeking amongst friends, a rally to end modern slavery.
