UTSA Symposium, Monday Sept 24, 7-9 Hart House

=..somewhere in Greece, a very, very long time ago, a certain Dimitri asks a question of his friend:

Dimitri: If Atlas holds up the world, what holds up Atlas?
Tasso: Atlas stands on the back of a turtle.

Dimitri: But what does the turtle stand on?
Tasso: Another turtle.
Dimitri: And what does that turtle stand on?
Tasso: My dear Dimitri, it’s turtles all the way down!

Just how big are these turtles?
In the beginning did God create man or was the other way around? In a mulch-religious world what is the appropriate relationship between multicultural ideals and free speech?
Are science and theology complimentary domains?
Are moral values relative or absolute?
What philosophies can best guide use to a socially just and economically balanced society?

The University of Toronto Secular Alliance is hosting its first symposium of the 2012-2013 academic year, on Monday, September 24th, in the Music Room, Hart House.

Join us for an evening of conversation, light debate, and of course, beer; as we attempt to answer some of the Big Questions regarding religion and secularism, morality, law, sexuality, the universe, and everything in between.

This event is FREE and open to all students, faculty and staff members. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided. There will also be a raffle with a bunch of cool stuff we're giving away! And of course, we will conclude the evening by relocating to a designated pub for a drink...or two.

We look forward to welcoming new students, and catching up with returning ones.
See you Monday.

Join the conversation.
