God is not great: How Religion ruins Everything by Christopher Hitchens - Carl-Schurz-Haus/Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institut (DAI) Freiburg e.V. - Freiburg

In the tradition of Bertrand Russell’s Why I Am Not aChristian and Sam Harris’s The End of Faith, ChristopherHitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With aclose and erudite reading of the major religious texts, hedocuments the ways in which religion is a man-made wish,a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion ofour origins in the cosmos. Hitchens frames the argumentfor a more secular life based on science and reason, inwhich hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope’s awesomeview of the universe, and Moses and the burning bushgive way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix.There’s no need to have read the book in order to attend!Eintritt: € 3 / 2 ermäßigt / CSH-Mitglieder freiVeranstaltungssprache: Englisch
