Evolutionary Psychology and the Engineered Mind
Dr. Edward Hagen

Dr. Edward Hagen will provide an introduction to Evolutionary Psychology and argue that most of the controversies surrounding this approach to cognition are rooted not in fears of genetic determinism per se, but in a persistent mind-body dualism.

Current Church/State Issues
Bruce Adams

Presented by Bruce Adams, President, Columbia Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Following a brief introduction to church/state issues, Bruce Adams will address current national issues, e.g., laws requiring public schools to teach Bible classes, efforts to require science teachers to teach Intelligent Design, and the new Texas law requiring schools to give students opportunities to lead prayers in public schools.

From Mormon to Apatheist PART 2
Sue Emmett

Sue Emmett of the ExMormon Foundation returns to continue the presentation she started in February. After living for 55 years as a devout and very active Mormon, Sue acted on all the information she had gathered for years, and left the faith of her fathers. A few years later, she classified herself as agnostic. Sue's presentation will give information about the doctrines and dogmas of the "Family Friendly" Mormon church that are unknown to most people and some insights into her journey away from all that she had believed. An apatheist, by the way, is someone who just really doesn't CARE whether there's a god or not.
