Hi, all! If you’re in Colorado in or near Colorado State University at Fort Collins, come hear me speak! I’ll be speaking on the topic of “Atheism and Sexuality” this Friday, Jan. 27. The event is free and open to the public. It’s being sponsored by CSU LIFT, Leaders in Free Thought — and the local Planned Parenthood generously provided condoms to help promote the event, so that’s neat. I’ll be speaking and then taking questions — so come prepared to grill me, or just to say howdy!
EVENT/HOSTS: Colorado State University Leaders in Free Thought (CSU LIFT)
DATE: Friday, Jan. 27
TIME: 4:00 pm
LOCATION: Lory Student Center, West Ballroom, CSU campus
TOPIC: Atheism and sexuality
SUMMARY: The sexual morality of traditional religion tends to be based, not on solid ethical principles, but on a set of taboos about what kinds of sex God does and doesn’t want people to have. And while the sex-positive community offers a more thoughtful view of sexual morality, it still often frames sexuality as positive by seeing it as a spiritual experience. What are some atheist alternatives to these views? How can atheists view sexual ethics without a belief in God? And how can atheists view sexual transcendence without a belief in the supernatural?
COST: Free, and open to the public
Hope to see you there!
