BECAUSE OF A SCHEDULING PROBLEM AT THE PRESS BOX
WE MUST START THIS BRUNCH / SPEAKER BRUNCH AT 11:00AM
SPEAKER: DANIEL GRECO
NYU: Bersoff Fellow
YALE UNIVERSITY: Assistant Professor; Philosophy
SUBJECT: PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION
Is it possible that a wholly good god could allow evil to exist? Must morality be grounded in the commands of an omnipotent deity? Or might there be moral truths even if such a being doesn't exist? Does the presence of intelligent life in the universe, or the apparent “fine-tuning” of the constants in our best physical theories, provide reason to think that the universe was created by an intelligent designer? Can it be rational to maintain one's religious beliefs (or lack thereof) in the presence of equally well informed, intelligent people who disagree with you?
LOCATION: The Press Box Restaurant - 932 Second Avenue (bet. 49th & 50th Sts.) -2nd Floor
COST:BRUNCH is $20, which includes a selection of Buffet Entrees, salad, one soft drink, coffee, tax and tip.
