Sex, Apes, and Alpha Gods: Jefferson Center salon

March 12 @ 4:00 pm


Do big religions have “Alpha Male” gods because men want multiple sexual partners and women are sexually attracted to dominant males?  If so, where did this come from?  Dr. Hector Garcia in his book, “Alpha God: The Psychology of Religious Violence and Oppression,” and his talk at the 2022 national convention of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) provides answers from our evolutionary psychology.

This free event is part of the Salon series of The Jefferson Center, and will take place at the Old Armory, 208 Oak Street, suite 101, in Ashland. We’ll begin by viewing Dr. Garcia’s FFRF video. Then, we will discuss his claims and his evidence. Sandra Coyner, Ph.D., Jefferson Center member and emerita professor of history, women’s studies, and critical thinking, will lead our discussion.

The Jefferson Center is a Rogue Valley nonprofit focused on using critical thinking and secular humanist values to understand and engage with important issues. See https:thejeffcenter.org for details on this and future events.
