Event Description (by organisers):
‘Welcome everyone for our future Public Debate on the motion « This House Believes that Religion has become irrelevant in today’s society ». For this debate that touches on everyone’s opinions, we have four amazing guest speakers!
• The first member of the proposition is Norman Bacrac. Long-life atheist, he is a council member of Atheism UK as well as trustee and editor of the Ethical Record, the Conway Hall Ethical Society’s monthly journal.
• Alongside with him will be Andrei Calvarasanu, first year Economics Student at the University of Bath. He has a general knowledge of the history and origins of religion as well as the differences and common points existing between all of them.
• Forming the opposition we have Revd Dr Simon Bale, priest in the Anglican Church and the Diocesan Interfaith Adviser for Bath and Wells.
• The fourth and last speaker is Abdullah al Andalusi, international Muslim speaker and debater and founder of the Muslim Debate Initiative.
I hope you will all be able to make it, as this promises to be a very passionate debate!
See you there!’
