Sense and Goodness Without God: A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism (Book Discussion Group)

If God does not exist, then what does? Is there good and evil, and should we care? Topics include free will, the nature of the universe, the meaning of life, and much more, arguing from scientific evidence that there is only a physical, natural world without gods or spirits, but that we can still live a life of love, meaning, and joy.
