Organizer since:

October 9, 2010

Why do you think Humanism is important to to the future of the Human species?

Because the focus of the phlosophy is on the real world and the human realm. Real answers come from scientific efforts and studies of real world events and actions.

What aspect of culture or politics would you most like to see Humanism involved in? Which the least

Education - especially the sciences - and protections for minority groups would top the political list. Humanism should avoid rigid party platforms and unbending ideologies.

What global social or environmental issue concerns you the most?

No answer yet


I was Vice President of HOI for 5 years, became President in May of 2010, and have been a Humanist Celebrant since 2006. In 2008 I published a book called "Dissecting A Bible: A Critical Analysis of the Holy Scriptures (Gateway Press).
