Critical Thinking - Why Stop at Religion? ~ By Lilandra Ra | Arlington Library | Saturday, 23. September 2017

The Riverside Atheists and Freethinkers are excited to announce a special engagement.

Please help us welcome Lilandra Ra back to RAFT!

Lilandra Ra

Lilandra Ra only believes things that have evidence to back them up. She will believe even unpleasant things that many people don't want to if that is what evidence points to.

She has worked in public schools as a science educator and has also trained teachers on curriculum. She is a former creationist and the wife of Aron Ra. Lilandra writes Living Science videos for his youtube channel. LSV are produced so that students, teachers, parents and adults can have free access to secular science education based on the Next Generation Science Standards

Critical Thinking - Why Stop at Religion?

Many atheists pushed through difficult cultural biases to escape from religious thinking. Religious thinking definitely poisons a lot of things just from judging the current state of our political climate. It's a mental short cut to avoid answering difficult questions with predigested answers.

But why stop there? If we truly want to be freethinkers, shouldn't we also ask the other difficult questions about other cultural biases that also don't really provide us with answers?

Come for a thought provoking afternoon with Lilandra and let's explore how we atheists often overlook our own biases on so many important subjects.

The Event:

2:00 pm to 2:10 pm: Announcements

2:15: Lecture

There will be a Q & A after the talk!

Admission:

General Admission: $10.00 cash

Students: $5.00 cash (w/ Student ID)

Kids: FREE

We are looking forward to seeing Lilandra again!
