Living Deeper Without God

The Skeptic and Atheists of Durango (in Colorado) along with the Fort Lewis College Philosophy Club recently hosted Dr. Dugald Owen who gave a talk about “Living Deeper Without God.”

They did what I would hope any local/college group does and videotaped the lecture so that the rest of us could experience it, too:

I haven’t had a chance to watch the whole thing, but if any parts stand out to you, please leave the timestamp/summary in the comments below!

    As a new FLC grad I am proud of our college for having topics like this discussed openly. I have had multiple discussions with professors about religious issues and to their credit they have all been extremely respectful, thoughtful conversations regardless of their personal views.

    *sigh* I love Colorado, can I just say once again how much I wish I lived there? My son has been accepted to the best university in Colorado, and he has to think about it!!! This is what you get for raising “free-thinking” children! He has the chance to move to Colorado! What the Hell is there to think about??!?

    Totally agree. I’ve lived in many different places, but Colorado is by far my favorite.

    It’s hard to take seriously somebody who thinks that ethical rules have an independent existence of their own. I wonder where, precisely, he thinks they exist?
