The humanities department at Jefferson Community College will host “Should We Believe?,” a religious debate between a theist (a believer) and a non-theist on Thursday, April 25, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. in Room 6-002, Jules Center (building 6). The public is welcome.
The Reverend Mahlon Smith, senior pastor at New Hope Baptist Church in Watertown, will lead the discussion in favor of theists and Jerry Moore, editor at the Watertown Daily Times, will lead the discussion in favor of non-theists. Moderating the debate will be the Reverend Dr. Jerome Wichelns, retired professor of philosophy and world religions at JCC and pastor of Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Adams.
The debate is spearheaded by the Interfaith Group of Watertown and sponsored by the JCC humanities department. Those who regard distinction between justified belief and opinion as well as those who question meaning, truth and purpose in life may find the debate of interest. Discussion will immediately follow the debate.
For more information, call the Jefferson Community College Humanities Department at 315-786-2414.
