The Capital District Humanist Society Presents: A Better Life: Joy & Meaning in a World Without God

September 10 @ 12:30 pm

There is no God. Now what? If this is the only life we have, how does that affect how we live our lives, how we treat each other, and cope with death?  Filmmaker Chris Johnson introduces us to people from all walks of life who challenge the false stereotypes of atheists as immoral and evil. Join us to learn how atheists have left religion to a better life filled with love, compassion, hope, and wonder.

Chris Johnson is a photographer and filmmaker. He received his undergraduate degree in film production (with a minor in religious studies) from Concordia University in Montreal. He is the author of the photography book, A Better Life: 100 Atheists Speak Out on Joy & Meaning in a World Without God as well as a documentary film version, A Better Life: An Exploration of Joy & Meaning in a World Without God.

This program will take place both in-person on Sunday, September 10 (at 12:30 PM) and via Zoom (at 1:00 PM).
The in-person event will be held at Pinnacle Living at 45 Forts Ferry Road, Latham, NY. Light refreshments will be available at the in-person meeting before the speaker’s
