"The most boring and unproductive question one can ask of any religion is whether or not it is true." Join us for a philosophical study of religion, with the help of the atheist philosopher Alain de Botton.
The core thought of this philosopher is that "religions are too fascinating to be abandoned to those who believe in it."
We'll highlight chapter 2 from his book 'Religion for Atheists' which deals with the role of the community and religion (see attachment). This is a concept that he hints at in his TedX video as well:
During our meeting we will discuss to what extent we agree with the above quotations. But also we will consider what productive things we can do with religion?
Come and join us for this interesting discussion.
