I gave my first talk of this name this week to Dorset Humanists, covering five different arguments (4 against God and 1 for), allowing for audience participation after each argument. Personally, I really enjoyed it – disseminating some quite intricate, at times, philosophical and theological arguments to a popular audience, though with some well-qualified members of the audience, too. I enjoyed talking after the presentation to an ex-professional philosopher (Head of Philosophy at Ontario University or some such place) and an ex-Monseigneur of the Catholic Church! Great.
What was so fulfilling was the feedback afterwards both from the audience members I talked to and the organisers themselves. Really appreciated.
I also enjoyed having a to-and-fro between an evangelical fundamentalist in the audience, as Christians were invited to come along too. I love that discursive battling of minds and thoughts and ideas. That floats my boat!
Anyway, a very great thanks to Dorset Humanists who have invited me back for the third time – long may that relationship continue!
I am presently being sent the video of the talk which I will submit to Youtube and then embed here for your intellectual edification…
