"How to be Good without God"
Attitudes Project found that 57 percent of Americans agree with the statement, "It is necessary to believe in God in order to be moral and have good values." But is this popular view correct? Is it really true that, "without God everything is permitted"? If not, then where do human values come from? Fred Edwords will address this question head on and explain the basis for humanist values--with practical application to our daily lives.
