Atheists and Christians:
Can they communicate without arguing?
Join us for this discussion on
Wednesday, May 20: 7:00-8:30pm
- Dialog between Atheists and anyone of religious faith is often challenging and can quickly lead to no constructive conclusion, often crumbling into argument.
- Can Atheists and Christians agree on some common ground, and then build a mutually constructive dialog from there?
- How can the 2 sides respectfully make their points, each listening to the other, and build a mutually respectful dialog?
Presenter for the evening: Christer Swartz
Christer is a member of Saint Mary’s Spirituality Council, and his educational background is in Philosophy. He has spent many years dialoging with Atheists and discussing issues around both Atheism and Agnostic viewpoints and religious faith.
He will present a brief history of Atheism as a discipline, how this has changed between old-school Atheists and the new Modern Atheists, and will describe some suggestions for how Christians can navigate these ideas without comprising their own beliefs, and how this might be done in a way that is constructive to both sides of this divide.
