Discussing & Connecting

Discuss and connect with others in the community.

We are showing lectures from the University of British Columbia’s MOOC: The Science of Religion

What is religion? Are we wired to believe? Does science have the answers? Join us on a journey to the origins of religion and spirituality.

The course is based on the idea that religion is a naturalistic phenomenon — meaning it can be studied and better understood using the tools of science. Religious belief and practice emerge naturally from the structure of human psychology, and have an important impact on the structure of societies, the way groups relate to each other, and the ability of human beings to cooperate effectively.

Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are free courses offered by universities and other post-secondary institutions, and open to anyone. All you need is access to the Internet and time to complete them! No previous MOOC experience required.

We live in interesting times. 

Will the UK really leave the European Union?Are the Russian sanctions working? Is there no end to misery in the Middle East?  What if a North Korean missile misses its target and hits Canada?  What happens when Venezuela finally collapses?  How has Canada managed to construct three trade treaties that connect Europe, North America, South America & Asia...and become the envy of the world in the process?  And who knows what Trump will do next? 

Join us for a lively and free-ranging discussion of current world affairs. Your opinion matters. Register online or at 604-984-0286, ext. 8144.
