Hello everyone, and Happy Belated New Year from the UAAA
The UofA Atheists and Agnostics have a lot planned for 2015, and we rang in the new semester with a great round of Liquid Rationalism. We had about 20 people attend last week, many of whom were first time attendies, making it our largest pub night in a while. I think I speak for everyone when I say we had a blast! The next LR will be slated sometime in February, so stay tuned.
This week (Jan. 18 – 24), members of the UAAA executive will be handing out reprintings of the latest Charlie Hebdo cartoons on campus. We’re doing this as an expression of solidarity and to make sure our fellow students are aware of what happened in Paris. Contact us if you’d like to help out.
A sort of arts and crafts project will also be happening this month. The UAAA used to have a large and colourful banner hanging in CAB, but since it was ripped down it hasn’t been remade. Well, we’re going to change that! Details will be confirmed later this week, but prepare your painting outfit because we’re going to need everyone’s help on this.
If you’re someone who loves to plan ahead, this update is for you: our yearly debate has been pushed to March 7. The debate will be between Justin Schieber and Randal Rauser, two excellent combatants steeped in philosophy and apologetics. Our debates draw a large crowd of both theists and atheists, so remember to be there or be square.
Until next time,
Alexander Delorme, President
