Please join us as local math professor and philosopher, Michael Aristidou, gives a talk titled:

“Some of the Arguments For and Against the Existence of God: Analysis and Discussion”

Does religious knowledge differ from scientific knowledge? We examine the validity of some of the arguments (old and new) for and against the existence of god. This talk will have a teaching perspective, with a dash of philosophy. It’s objective is to give some ways in approaching and evaluating religious claims and arguments. Q&A to follow…afterwards we may informally adjourn to a local coffee shop.
Doors open at 2pm, Discussion starts at 2:30pm
