Humanist Press is the publishing house of the American Humanist Association, providing material for the humanist/freethought/atheist market since 1995.

With the largest print book seller in the United States now selling more ebooks than paper books, it was time the freethought movement invested in the future of publishing so that we can remain relevant and accessible to readers in the U.S. and around the globe.

With new ebooks becoming available on a bi-monthly basis, Humanist Press will have a regularly expanding catalog of interest to atheist and agnostic humanists everywhere. Visit

The Humanist Hour (HH) audio podcast is a monthly one-hour talk show produced by the American Humanist Association. Every episode of the HH audio podcast explores a different area of humanist thought, from politics to pop culture.

In this month’s podcast, Jes Constantine and Todd Stiefel interview satirical musician Roy Zimmerman, Australian freethought singer / songwriter Shelley Segal, and rational rocker Bruce Harris from Words Such As Burn, about their experience as atheist artists in the music industry.

Isn't it nice to see Christian compassion?

One of our Twitter followers tweeted a pic of one of our Washington, DC bus ads that has been vandalized.

The ad reads: Don't believe in a God? Join the club.

Of my tatoos, here are the two that reflect my Humanism. I hope some people here get as much a kick out of these as I do ;)

The Kochar Humanist Education Center publicly offers a wide range of materials for adults and children. From lesson plans and presentations to education manuals and a teacher corps, the center advocates for humanist values by offering the resources needed to educate based on them. Take a look and see if there isn't something you find useful. And, if you're a teacher, consider joining the Humanist Teacher Corps.

From the latest edition of Humanist Network News, ex-Mormon Nancy Martin gives a brief personal history, Mormonism (As Told by an Ex-Mormon)*.
