Alabama Freethought's next Lake Hypatia Speaker Series will be Sunday, February 16, 2014, at our Lake Hypatia Advance. Click here for a map to Lake Hypatia.
Our speaker in February will be Dr. Dennis Martin, secretary of the Atlanta Freethought Society. With a Ph.D. in philosophy as well as a degree in mathematics, Dr. Martin has taught for over 36 years including topics of philosophy, critical thinking, formal logic, history of ethics, business ethics, contemporary moral issues, philosophy of religion, philosophy of atheism, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of human nature, and decision-making.
In this program, Dr. Martin will discuss the more fundamental ideas embraced by freethinkers and secular humanists alike, how those ideas arose in history, and how you can show their importance to your non-freethinking friends today. Many people assume that "Freethought" is just a polite code word for "Atheism." While atheism is a likely consequence of Freethought, the two ideas are not identical and the differences matter. The audience will be encouraged to participate in the discussion with their own examples and ideas.
