Morality to Change the World With or Without God(s)?

The April 7, 2009 event at Columbia College was an extraordinary exchange on the idea of god and the role of religion. Is religion a creation of humanity whose time has long passed? Or does it serve some deeper need of human beings or point to some deeper reality? Are beliefs in gods obstacles or pathways to understanding and changing the world and to the emancipation of humanity?


Stephen Asma, Ph.D., is professor of philosophy and humanities at Columbia College Chicago. He is a science writer, Buddhist, and author of The Gods Drink Whiskey; Stumbling toward Enlightenment in the Land of the Tattered Buddha (Harper SanFrancisco, 2005).

Bob Bossie, SCJ, is a member of the international Catholic order of Priests of the Sacred Heart and a staff member of the 8th Day Center for Justice in Chicago, where he works on issues of peace, human rights, economic justice and non-violence. A founding member of Voices in the Wilderness, Bob has spoken widely and traveled to Iraq and Latin America.

Sunsara Taylor writes for Revolution Newspaper, the voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. She is part of a national campus tour to promote the 2008 book, Away With All Gods! Unchaining the Mind and Radically Changing the World, by Revolutionary Communist Party Chairman Bob Avakian (Insight Press). Taylor has been featured in/on The New York Times, The O'Reilly Factor, and CNN's Showbiz Tonight.

This event was co-sponsored by the Department of Humanities, History and Social Sciences of Columbia College, 8th Day Center for Justice, and Insight Press.

AND ON 9.1.09, join the movement to put this before thousands.

Embed the clips (which will appear at on 9.1) or parts of the full film onto your sites and tell all your friends.

In 2003 Bob Avakian delivered this historic talk in the United States. This is a wide-ranging revolutionary journey. It breaks down the very nature of the society we live in and how humanity has come to a time where a radically different society is possible. He lays it all out in a nine-hour speech-and then goes into three hours of question-and-answer dialogue with the audiences. It's all there-full of heart and soul, humor and seriousness.

There is nothing online like THIS: nothing that gets at these questions as deeply, thoroughly and truthfully as this. Millions of people are searching for the truth, and watching videos, short and long. Some of these give part of the answer; but some of them-including some of the most popular-give people bullshit answers, pointing people in the wrong direction and spreading poison. Here, and all over the world, people need to see Revolution: Why It's Necessary, Why It's Possible, What It's All About.

And YOU are needed to spread this. Here are 4 ways to help make this happen.

1. Right now, forward this email/note. Post this announcement on your sites.

2. On 9.1.09, go to and Embed the clips or the full film onto your sites, post it on message boards, discussion groups... wherever people are debating big questions.

3. Download the promotional materials (posters, cards, stickers) NOW from and get them up in your dorm rooms, housing projects, local coffee shops... Talk with your friends about taking this up as well - anyone you know who hates the way the world is and are hungering to understand it and be part of changing it radically.

4. Contribute funds at starting on 9.1.09 to spread this further.

Get with and be part of launching the Revolution film online.
