I've not read this book mentioned here, or even had a chance to listen to this interview yet, so I have no opinions. I'm just passing it along for now. Has anyone read this book yet, or heard this interview when it came out? - DG

Fresh Air | Defending The Faith, And Morality, Of NonBelievers

Humanism — the belief that ethics and morality can be vested in rationality, rather than a supernatural deity — might sound like a departure from faith communities and culture, but according to Greg Epstein, it doesn't have to be.

In his new book, Good Without God: What A Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe, Greg Epstein responds to challenges against humanism that spring from atheists and religious communities alike. Epstein argues that so-called nonbelievers actually share many important beliefs, and he discusses the importance of investing in these values of tolerance, responsibility, and morality.

Epstein himself is an atheist, and the Humanist Chaplain at Harvard University. Good Without God is his first book.

Aiden, the excerpt from The Trashing of Margaret Mead was fascinating. Since I've lived in Hawaii for many years, and the fact that my dad was employed by Dr. Mead made it doubly interesting. I added my two cents.

In this week’s eSkeptic, there's an excerpt from The Trashing of Margaret Mead: Anatomy of an Anthropological Controversy by Paul Shankman.

I saw the premise for the new King book and could not help but think someone had recently shown him the Simpsons Movie. :)
Comment by Friend of Dorothy on December 6, 2009 at 11:34am
I just finished King's, "Under the Dome". A small town is suddenly decended upon by an unearthly, impenatrible capsule. It will bring out the best and worst in those hundreds of trapped prisoners. Watching the gradual slide down from civilized town-folk to desperate knife edge survivers is a grripping tale you hate to put down. The only fault, and I rarely have them about King, is that I was somewhat disapointed in the simplistic, let down,,when the reason for the whole thing is eplained at the end. I was left with the feeling that something more was needed to make the ending feel more fulfilling.
