On The Human

Thanks to Luke, I just discovered the humanist website On The Human. They have a number of very cool articles, and some interesting comments from readers. Here are two to whet your appetite:

A downer: The Disenchanted Naturalist's Guide to Reality, by Alex Rosenberg, on why life is meaningless.

An upper: Morals without God? by Frans de Waal, on the evolution of morality.

  1. Robert, I have recently come across your website (really recently, just a few hours ago) and I am very much enjoying your essays. I'm a former baptist minister, now 32 years ago, and starting over in school. I was writing a comparative paper on contemporary vs. early christian doctrine, and I found your page. I deeply appreciate the time and effort you put into your research, and I have greatly benefited from your work.

    I'm sure you are very busy with school, but if you would ever find the time, I would enjoy communicating with you further. Of course FaceBook is a great means to communicate, but I wasn't sucessful in finding you there. If you like, please feel free to contact me via email at

    looking forward to the chance of speaking with you further,
