ATHEISM IN PRISON

ath

Many people accuse atheists of just being negative (you’re defined by what you don’t believe) and having no moral or ethical alternative to offer. But like most beliefs about atheism, this just isn’t true. There is humanism. It has a long tradition, going back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans and even some eastern cultures, in which moral behavior wasn’t tied to religion at all. Humanism, like the name implies, is concerned with finding the best way of acting and living for human beings. It is centered on this life, the here and now (but also the future), beginning with the premise that humans have the ability to improve life for everyone. And there is a library full of study on the subject, and organizations, and lots of dedicated, good people who practice and defend it.
