David Koepsell – Why Secular Humanism?

May 18, 2007


David Koepsell is the Executive Director of the Council for Secular Humanism, North America’s leading organization for nonreligious people. An author, philosopher and an attorney, David’s work focuses mostly on the nexus of science, technology, ethics and public policy.
In this discussion with D.J. Grothe, David explores the relationship between secular humanism and religion, whether secular humanism is just a religion for the nonreligious, the “tenets” of secular humanism, and addresses many challenges to the worldview both from Christian activists and from those in the “atheist movement.” He also justifies it as a viable naturalistic life-stance, competitive with supernatural ways of looking at the world.
