Hugh Taft-Morales: The “7 Deadly Sins” through a Humanist Lens

  • Sunday, March 29, 2020
  • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM


Registration is closed

Most humanists reject the concept of “sin” as it relates to divine judgment. Many liberal religions embrace the idea that human nature, as flawed as it is, is basically good.  So how do humanists process those personality traits condemned by the bible as “deadly”? How should we regard pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth? Come explore with Hugh Taft-Morales, Leader of the Philadelphia and Baltimore Ethical Societies, some of the different approaches to how we biological creatures might process these traits within the context of our lofty ideals.

This NoVES Platform will be offered via Zoom Teleconferencing.

To join a Zoom meeting, you can go to the Zoom website ( or click on the "Join Zoom Meeting" link in your meeting invitation, where you'll be prompted to run the Zoom app, which you can install via the file that automatically downloads. This will allow you to connect video and sound from your computer or smartphone. You can also dial-in by phone via the phone numbers included in the invitation (audio only).

I realize that ZOOM technology is new for many of you. I will be on the conference early and will be able to help people get on the videocall. You can also call me at 919-490-6304 for assistance (try to do so before 2).
