“Religious faith discourages independent thought, it’s divisive, and it’s dangerous”, says Richard Dawkins. On Wednesday of week three, UMSS will be screening the first part of the Richard Dawkins documentary Root of All Evil?, in which he “examines how religious faith is gaining ground in the face of rational, scientific truth”. The documentary includes interviews with a number of prominent members of various faiths, including Ted Haggard (!).
When: Wednesday August 10, 1-2pm
Where: Lowe Theatre, Redmond Barry Building
This event is free and open to the public. However, to support UMSS and help it grow, we ask that you consider signing up for a membership on the day ($1 for union members, $2 for non-members, $4 for non-students). We will also be selling UMSS t-shirts for $20 for members.
Also, remember remember we’re co-hosting a trivia night on Thursday August 11. You should definitely be there.
