What is a Bright?

* A bright is a person who has a naturalistic worldview
* A bright's worldview is free of supernatural and mystical elements
* The ethics and actions of a bright are based on a naturalistic worldview

* We promote the civic understanding and acknowledgment of the naturalistic worldview, which is free of supernatural and mystical elements.
* We gain public recognition that persons who hold such a worldview can bring principled actions to bear on matters of civic importance.
* We educate society toward accepting the full and equitable civic participation of all such individuals.

Daniel Dennett talks about the Brights movement.

"Believing there is no God gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-O and all the other things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have." -Penn Jillette, active Bright of "Penn and Teller" fame

Thought you'd all be interested, I got a brief interview with Brights co-founder Mynga Futrell at AAI a couple of weeks ago, and it's posted at my column here.
