Is God Necessary for Ethics?
The Board was recently approached to cosponsor a debate on the subject
Is God Necessary for Ethics? The other sponsor will be the local
Christ Presbyterian Church.
The principals in the debate will be David Keller, PhD, Associate
Professor of Philosophy at Utah Valley State College and Mark Hausam,
Elder at Christ Presbyterian Church and Adjunct Instructor in
Philosophy at UVSC.
The debate will be held on Friday, April 13, at 7:00 PM in Orson
Spencer Hall on the campus of the University of Utah. The debate will
consist of opening statements, rebuttals, closing statements, and an
open microphone for questions from the audience. The Board considers
this a excellent opportunity to have a public civil discussion of this
often divisive topic.
Please put this on your calendar and come and listen to, and perhaps
participate in, this unique opportunity for humanism to put its best
foot forward in the public arena. We will have literature available
for distribution and would appreciate any help in greeting the public.
