Skeptic Book Club July 10, 2011 4:00 to 6:00 pm
The Skeptic Book Club meets the second Sunday of each month at Barnes & Noble Booksellers, 8029 Kingston Pike, at 4:00 p.m. to discuss a bit of everything from a mostly rational viewpoint. On July 10th, we'll discuss "The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Value".

Sam Harris has written a simple, yet extraordinarily powerful book about the "science of morality" and it is quite a revelation. He cuts through the cloudy thinking of religion and relativism to get at the heart of the problem: How do we as human beings maximize our well being?

Harris provides no hard and fast answers, he is attempting to lay the foundations here. He is not, like Moses, stumbling off Mt. Sinai with stone tablets emblazoned with the "truth," he is merely sketching an orientation which might allow us to tackle the mountain ourselves.
