Religion and Morality

Onkar's talk on religion and morality will be livestreamed tomorrow at 7:30 CST (5:30 PST). Here's a description of the talk:
ARI fellow Dr. Onkar Ghate will be giving his talk “Morality and Religion” at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities on Tuesday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m. (Central time) in Science Teaching & Student Services (STSS Bldg.), Room 230. This event will be livestreamed for free at: www.livestream.com/arsg. Description: If God is dead, is everything permitted? How many times have you heard it said that without religion, morality is impossible? Good and evil would lose their meaning and no one would bother to do the right thing. But what if the truth is actually the opposite? What if, on a proper conception of morality, religion is the enemy of the good? In this provocative talk, Dr. Onkar Ghate explores these questions from the unique perspective of Ayn Rand’s radical rethinking of morality. An extended Q&A will follow the talk. This event is free for students; $5 for the general public. For more information, contact Katie Cowles cowl0054@umn.edu

The rules of morality are not the conclusion of our reason.
