What: An Introduction to Freethinking
Where: NCAS Auditorium, University of the Philippines Los Baños, Laguna
When: September 4 (Tuesday), 1 – 4 PM
Against all odds, Filipino Freethinkers-University of the Philippines Los Baños (FF-UPLB) has been recognized by the Office of Student Affairs-Student Organizations and Activities Division for this year!
The only organization in campus catering to atheists, agnostics, deists and progressive theists, FF-UPLB’s founding has set the grounds for the promotion of science, reason and secularism within the community, aside from being a safe haven for heathen students and teachers.
FF-UPLB is holding its first event: An Introduction to Freethinking. We’ll be discussing three topics:
- Science and Freethinking, where we will be differentiating science from pseudoscience, and stressing the need for evidence-based logical inquiry on discussions and decision making;
- Secularism and Freethinking, where Filipino Freethinkers President Red Tani will discuss what secularism is, and why is it an indispensable element of governance; and
- Non-Belief and Freethinking, where Filipino Freethinkers Affiliations Director Garrick Bercero will be relating his own experiences and journey to disbelief, while giving light on the general misconceptions about non-believers and atheism.
The event is free of charge, and everyone is welcome to attend. There is no required political ideology, philosophy, religion or IQ level.
The event is on September 4 (Tuesday), and runs from 1 – 4 PM. The Philippine Atheists and Agnostics Society, BUKLOD UPLB, Movement of Students for Progressive Leadership in UP, and UP Socius are our very generous sponsors.
We’ll be glad to have you there.
