Event by the Pikes Peak Skeptics Society.
Popular blogger Greta Christina will be at UCCS to give a talk on "Sex and Atheism".
The sexual morality of traditional religion tends to be based, not on solid ethical principles, but on a set of taboos about what kinds of sex God does and doesn't want people to have. And while the sex-positive community offers a more thoughtful view of sexual morality, it still often frames sexuality as positive by seeing it as a spiritual experience. What are some atheist alternatives to these views? How can atheists view sexual ethics without a belief in God? And how can atheists view sexual transcendence without a belief in the supernatural?
There will be a Q&A and book signing following the talk.
We will meet in the University Center (UC), Room 116. The university center is on the east side of the building that also houses the library. (Look for the building with the clocktower.)
