Event Description

The Sussex Nigerian Society is pleased to present “The Thin Line”, a debate series to discuss topical issues bordering on the relationship between Africa and the West on Religion, Culture, Politics and Economics. The first debate on whether the world would be better off without religion is coming up on the 9th December, 2015.

Abstract
Religion is believed to be important because it has shaped the social structure, law, and moral codes of different civilizations; promoted co-existence and inspired altruism. Currently, over 5 billion people are estimated to be affiliated with religious groups. However, some argue that religion has had the most influence on wars and terrorism and promotes discrimination and prejudice. As such, it has often been asked whether the world would be better off without religion. In the first Sussex Nigerian Society debate series themed “The Thin Line”, the society hosts accomplished debaters/scholars in the field of religion to debate on whether humanity needs religion. The debate series is funded by the One-World Sussex to encourage diversity.
