What is life?
When does life begin?
When does life end?
Who should have the right to end a life?
Who should have the right to create life?
What makes a life good? Bad? Worthwhile? Interesting?
Sure, these questions have been asked before, but have you ever really discussed them - in depth and in a closed room - with an intelligent, thoughtful collection of people who may not share your opinions?
Pursuant to the prime directive of the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers, we're asking these questions and we plan to come up with answers - not to mention a whole slew of new questions - at our next Sunday meeting.
Philosopher Lyndel Roe joins us this month for a spirited dialog about the Meaning of Life. (In addition to the obvious Monty Python references, we're guessing that the related issues of The Universe and Everything will also be tackled.)
Lyndel Roe is a frequent lecturer on philosophy and ethics. He has held full-time academic positions at the university of Arkansas at Little Rock, the University of Central Arkansas, and Pulaski technical College. He is currently chairman of the Department of Philosophy and Humanities at Pulaski Tech. He earned his BA from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and his MA from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.
Please join us at the library for a conversation that promises to be lively, entertaining, and informative.
At our Lecture meeting, we also discuss current events and Arkansas Society of Freethinkers group news and business.
Parking is free and plentiful on Sundays. We meet on the first floor in the East meeting room in the back of the Library.
We usually adjourn at about 4:30pm and walk over to the Flying Saucer (http://www.beerknurd.com/stores/littlerock/) for dinner, drinks and more fun times.
