WEDNESDAY, 24 SEPT, 4:30 – 5:20 PM, OLD MAIN 201
Club member Jeremiah Graves will be presenting on Haitian Voodoo. Topics include facts and fiction in the practice of Voodoo as well as, according to Jeremiah “self-defense against bullies.” (Sponsored by Religious Studies Club)

THURSDAY, 25 SEPT, 4:00 – 5:00 PM, ENGR 108
A debate will be held between Dr. Harrison Kleiner (representing the atheist position) and Dr. Charlie Huenemann (representing the theist position). They will be debating the rationality of religious belief. (Sponsored by S.H.A.F.T.)



  1. Doug says:

    So who won/lost the debate? Was it silly or actually viable and interesting?


  2. Kleiner says:

    I think it ended in a draw, which is how such things usually end. I didn’t think it was silly. As Huenemann put it at the end of the debate, hopefully theists left a little less comfortable with their view and atheists left a little less comfortable with their view. And hopefully both sides became more informed about the arguments on both sides, which might (maybe?) lead to a more civil debate.


  3. Doug says:

    Great, I read some of the comments from the other posting and it sounded incredible interesting. I miss being at usu (at times anyway)!
