Presented by Greta Christina, Author and Blogger, Greta Christina's Blog

So you don’t believe in God. Now what? The way we deal with life can change dramatically when we stop believing in gods, souls, and afterlives. When we leave religion — or if we never had it in the first place — where do we go? How do we deal with love and sex, pleasure and death, reality and making stuff up? How do we decide on our values, and how do we live them?

Join us to hear Greta Christina answer these questions and share tips on how to navigate life as an atheist.
