The Capital District Humanist Society Presents: How to Sustain Humanity, Advance our Civilization, and Succeed as a Species
November 12 @ 1:00 pm
We need a completely new understanding of the reality in which we exist. We have a small window of opportunity to make this shift in thinking, compared to the huge obstacles in our current belief systems — political, economic, social, and religious — that must be dissolved. Yet this must happen if all the life forms that share this planet are to survive.
Joe Simonetta earned a BS in Business Logistics from Penn State, an MS from Harvard Divinity School, and an MS of Architecture from the U of Colorado. He has lived in many places around the world, and done many kinds of work. He serves on the board of directors of The Secular Community. He is committed to doing something to alleviate the unrelenting suffering in the world.
