    Personal Responsibility And Morality

    One of the chief complaints by Christians about non-believers is that we have no code of morality. There's nothing stopping us from going on a murder spree because we expect no eternal damnation from that act. So for anyone who is a little confused about the code of morality for...

    Foxhole

    Because I'm not a theist, my wife's family loves to use the line about there being no atheists in foxholes. I argued the point halfheartedly, wondering if it were possible that I'd change my tune if I knew my doom was nigh (nothing good ever seems to be nigh). I had a 'fall...

    here's my problem: as a secular humanist by

    I Am a Secular Humansit

    I Am

    I didn't really know what one is, until I read Jerry Falwell's book on the subject. He was quite upset at us, we were ruining the country. By the time I finished his book, I was proudly proclaming myself a Secular Humanist.
