Rituals for Non-believers – Sasha SaganDate:
Thursday, October 8, 2020
Online Event – Advance RSVP Required
How do we as skeptics navigate life’s rites of passage? How do we celebrate and mourn without the infrastructure of religion? Sasha Sagan, author of For Small Creatures Such As We: Rituals for Finding Meaning in Our Unlikely World explores these questions, and highlights the astronomical and biological roots of many human traditions.
Sasha Sagan has worked as a television producer, filmmaker, editor, writer, and speaker in the U.S. and abroad. She regularly speaks on ways science can inform our celebrations and how we mark the passage of time, inspired in part by the work of her parents, Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan.
This event is part of Skeptical Inquirer Presents, a series of live online presentations from leading experts in science, skepticism, medicine, media, activism, and advocacy, all devoted to the cause of advancing science over pseudoscience, media literacy over conspiracy theories, and critical thinking over magical thinking, hosted by the brilliant and hilarious comedian Leighann Lord, co-host of the Point of Inquiry podcast.
