Tonight, Oct 21 2010, Freethinkers of PSU in conjunction with CFI Portland present Sam Harris at the First Unitarian Church downtown (map). Harris will be lecturing on his new book, The Moral Landscape in a free event. Doors open at 6:30 and the event will start at 7:00. This is a momentous occasion, and we are proud beyond measure to sponsor Sam Harris here in Portland!
The first annual Portland Humanist Film Festival is happening RIGHT NOW! We had a great opening night last night with Monty Python’s Life of Brian, followed by clips from Lewis Black as well as Mr Deity. The festival continues today and all through tomorrow night. Saturday’s highlights include For The Bible Tells Me So, Heaven, In The Shadow of the Temple (filmmakers in attendance) and director Danny Boyle’s sci-fi epic Sunshine. Sunday will feature Julia Sweeney’s Letting Go of God, A Thing Of Wonder (filmmakers in attendance), A Sea Change and a very special double screening of the Portland premier of Creation. The full list of feature films can be found on the PHFF website.
Best part is, the entire festival is 100% free.
Last night, Monday Oct 4, author Sam Harris (who will be in Portland later this month) was featured on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show where he discussed his new book, The Moral Landscape.
