HAT Forum - "Atheism in Religion & in Larger Society"

  • The 519 Room 304 (check lobby screen) 519 Church Street Toronto, ON, M4Y 2C9 Canada (map)

1. The idea of an atheist in an organized religion has provoked a variety of reactions from atheists and believers.  What is your response as a humanist?  Explain. 

2. How does atheism or humanism as a worldview and a way of living pervade and operate in all areas of life or society? 

3.  Attachment to a worldview, a philosophy, or a societal institution (e.g., capitalist economy, a religion, a particular type of family) is based on emotions and intellectual understanding.  How important are emotions in accepting an atheist worldview and following a humanist way of life? 

4. Why should or would an atheist remain in a religion?  Any reasons you can think of?
