Awesome events coming up!

Posted by oregonaha on May 3, 2010

Hey everyone! AHA! prez Lucy here! It’s an extremely exciting time for AHA! right now–after nearly a year of crazy transitions, lots of hard lessons, and tons of fun, we’re holding three big events this term that we’re sure will go great!

This week (May 6) we’ll be having our very first guest lecture/presentation. A great way to “celebrate” the National Day of Prayer, we’ll be having John Davidson, a professor in the Political Science department, talk to AHA! and the UO community about the godless US constitution and the history of secularism in America. That will take place this Thursday at 7pm in Columbia 150–we hope you can come!

Next week, we’ll be holding a Movie Night on Thursday and AHA! prom on Friday. Check out more info on the movie under the “Upcoming Events” tab.

We’ll be having our culminating event on Friday, May 21. Hemant Mehta, author, blogger, and Chair of the Secular Student Alliance’s Board of Directors, will be visiting the UO from Chicago to share his story, “I sold my soul on eBay.” We’re PUMPED for Hemant’s talk, so be sure to mark your calendars!

Have a great week and let us know if you have any questions!

    Dear AHA, Like what you’re doing. I’m an old guy, worked for many years at an eastern university as professor of anthropology. We never had anything like you on our campus. In my field of study we had a field called “comparative religion” that assumed everybody in the world had “religion”, a word that’s derived from the Latin. Really, “religion” is so culture-bound that many of us are blind to the possibilities of being without it. Could there develop a language without religious signs? If we don’t murder ourselves out of existence, the possibilities of “living outside the box” are enormous. I live in Gresham, far from Eugene, so there’s little I can do to help. And you might prefer to keep an 89-year-old at a distance–though you probably wouldn’t mind my being gay! Anyway, congratulations on being you! Best wishes, Bill
