COUNT Discussion Meeting: Ethical Issues

Ethics is defined as moral principles that govern a person's or groups behavior. Moral principles are the principles of right and wrong that are accepted by an individual or a social group.Does being an atheist or non-theist make us think differently from those who believe in regards to ethical issues? Are we more accepting of specific issues due to our non belief? If not, what determines what we believe is right or wrong when it comes to ethical issues? Tonight we will discuss some ethical issues including, but not limited to: end of life, cloning & stem cell research, death penalty, war & terrorism, civil liberties, drug policies, sexuality issues, hate crimes, racism, and discrimination.

"Ethics is a code of values which guide our choices and actions and determine the purpose and course of our lives".  - Ayn Rand [masked])

 

This week's topic is yet to be determined. Stop by later for more updates!

Atheist, agnostics, other non-theists, and atheist-friendly people are welcome to join us.

    Great topic, sorry that I'll be out of town that day. Hope we do a part 2 on it, since there's so many aspects to the topic!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
