Why Humanism Matters in Politics

Posted on May 16, 2017 at 8:17am 23 Comments

I promote Humanism for a reason.



The Atlantic had a great article about how the secularization of the electorate is impacting politics.  If you are unfamiliar with the term, let me translate. More and more people lack religion. Because our beliefs impact our politics, larger groups of…

7 Words that can change the world

Posted on September 6, 2016 at 11:48am 3 Comments

Hi there - I run an online learning website and a speaker has been making the secular circuit in my neck of the woods talking about a reality based approach to life.



I asked him to create an online program - and this is what he came up with - https://humanistlearning.com/7-words-that-can-change-the-world/  (It's free - no sign up required - just log in as a guest)

It's…

Teaching Humanism to the Military

Posted on August 16, 2016 at 9:05am 7 Comments

I have a serious question. The Vermont National Guard put out a request for sources - for a program that is a LOT like my Living Made Simpler program in terms of topics they want discussed. (see:https://humanistlearning.com/livingmadesimpler1/

Obviously - it's the military - a non-religious secular approach to a discussion of ethics and personal responsibility and the dignity and worth of each…

Atheism isn't enough - and it isn't very satisfying

Posted on April 26, 2016 at 12:30pm 11 Comments

I'm an atheist. Have been since I stopped being agnostic when i was a teen. I went through a 2 week existential depression and realized,  nope, don't believe and that was that. I literally cannot imagine what it is like to believe in supernaturalism never having experienced that with the exception of some dabbling with a ouiga board while a tween. 

I'm not shy about my atheism. It's part of who I am and part of my philosophical development. And that's key = it's part of my…

Thanks for replying to my discussion! I agree with you completely - I will spread your website link you have me to others so they can read your book too.

Congrats on the success of your book! I also enjoyed it!

I enjoyed you Humanist Thought for 11/8/2011.  Mentally preparing for the worst-case-scenario sounds morbid at first blush, but is a very good tool for dealing with worry. And since the worst case almost never happens, it helps us see that our lives are, in fact, quite good.

Keep up the good work.

Jennifer,  just listened yesterday to your interview with Swoopy on Skepticality.  I'm looking forward to purchasing your book and learning more about what you have to say.  You have such a great attitude and outlook on life and toward other people.  Carl

 

P.S.  I'm so jealous that you grew up in a secular household!

Greetings, Jennifer! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D
