Can My Life Have Meaning Without God? "The Atheist Who Didn’t Exist: Or the Dreadful Consequences of Bad Arguments"

  • Wycliffe College--Leonard Hall 5 Hoskin Avenue Toronto, ON, M5S 2W2 Canada (map)

Recently, Dr. Andy Bannister released the book: "The Atheist Who Didn't Exist: Or the Dreadful Consequences of Bad Arguments" (Oxford: Lion). In this book he looks at common atheist soundbites that at first glance sound quite powerful, but upon deeper examination begin to unravel.

He uses humour, wit, good illustrations, logic, and reason to get to the bottom of things. Some of these sound bites include: atheism is not a belief system; all religions are the same; religion is a psychological crutch; religion poisons everything; science can explain all of reality; we can be good without God; we can have meaning in life without God; Jesus is a myth.

In his talk at the University of Toronto, Dr. Bannister will tackle one of these soundbites: “Can My Life Have Meaning Without God?" Following his talk there will be an extended open Question and Answer period. Bring your toughest questions to him. During this time he can also address any of the other soundbites he lists in his book. No question is off limits.
