The Myer Horowitz Theatre was host to a centuries-old debate on January 28, as "Does God Exist II" was presented by the University of Alberta Atheist and Agnostic Society and the U of A chapter of Campus for Christ.
Nearly 600 students packed the theatre, eager to hear the discussion about the nature of morality. The debate asked if morality needed to originate from a god, or some other outside organizing force.
On the "no" side was Massimo Pigliucci, the chair of philosophy at Lehman College, part of the City University of New York. He was contracted through the Student Secular Alliance. Pigluicci has published a number of books discussing creationism, rationalism, and evolution.
Arguing for "yes," Michael Horner is an anthropologist who tours Canadian campuses to "promote and defend Christianity," according to his website. He is affiliated with Campus Crusade for Christ, Campus for Christ's governing body. Horner is the author of a number of articles relating to Christian philosophy.
