Graveyard of the Gods

On Friday, October 30th, SecSI will be hosting a Graveyard of the Gods on the Pentacrest West Lawn from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM, as a farewell to the thousands of gods which have been forgotten throughout history. The display will demonstrate that many gods from all cultures are no longer worshiped or have faded in popularity.

The event is not an attack on religion, but a way to demonstrate that Blaise Pascal’s infamous Wager doesn’t work – primarily because it assumes only one possible god to bet on.

SecSI will have a table along with free Halloween candy and a variety of interesting secular literature.

This display is part of a national event run by the Secular Student Alliance, a non-profit that supports secular student groups, including SecSI, all over the country.

The Iowa City Press Citizen has written a piece detailing the event here.
