Apr 6: This Week At BBUUC (Updated 4/5/14)

This week at BBUUC….

April 6: Linda Crawford presents “Does Religious Faith Suppress Curiosity?”

If we ascribe to a particular religious faith, does it mean that we stop asking questions about ourselves and the universe? Is atheist and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins right when he describes religious faith as “a process of active non-thinking”? Linda will examine the question of faith and curiosity in terms of modern-day Christianity and Unitarian Universalism.

Led by Candace Gerding, Accompanied by Gary Smart
