AHA Updates

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

thanks for the connection to donate to the relief effert and then the update on where our support went. Great feed back. Had to look up Jecmal, Haiti. Thanks. You have me concidering making monthly donation, which is something I have not done for a long time. I reach out with clothing and food donations but most of the org. here in AR are mostly church based, I do look for places like Red Cross, Abilities Unlimited, or Food for the Nations (local indian group), and then I try to recylce all the products that I can. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

The American Humanist Association today commended President Obama for his continued acknowledgement and inclusion of nonbelievers when speaking about the role of religion in American life.

I just joined, I am looking forward to being part of discussions with like minded people.

I have found it quite fascinating that, it is religions inhumanity making me a Humanist. It is religions hypocrisy, which bolsters my steadfast skepticism. I was born an atheist, but religion has born an anti-theist - me.
