Debate – Do we need God to ground our moral obligations.

Tomorrow (Thursday the 5th of August) I am moderating a debate on the moot “Do we need God to ground our moral obligations?”

The location: HSB2, University of Auckland

Time: 1-3pm

It’s a face-off, so to speak, between the Overseas Christian Fellowship and the Atheist Club. It also sounds like it will be fairly friendly, seeing that they’ve been exchanging notes. Come along and swell the crowd.
