Spring 2013, Meeting #2: The Role of Religious Education in Modern Society
For our second meeting of the Spring semester, we'll be talking about how religious education, such as private religious schools for children or religious universities, play a role in our modern, largely secular society. Do they still serve a purpose? Does religious education contribute to society, or is it a relic of the past? Does it interfere with the education of children or the research of college students? Keep these questions in mind, and please bring more for our next meeting!
- We are a registered student organization at UF that provides freethinkers of any religious background the opportunity to discuss religion and nonreligion alike. For more information, see our overview, terminology, and frequently asked questions.
- We define ourselves not by our beliefs, but by the way in which we hold them. After careful thought and rational inquiry, we hold our beliefs to be the most reasonable conclusions one could possibly reach. For more information on how we define freethought, atheism, agnosticism, and other difficult terms, see our official terminology.
- We meet every two weeks. Check out our facebook page or meeting schedule for dates, times, locations, and descriptions.
