Yeppers, well-written!

My thoughts match exactly what he wrote and I have voiced them many times.  Here is one part I really like.  When people ask me why I care what others people think, I responds in this way (as he wrote in the article):

Those who believe in or yearn for other realms (like the celestial kingdom) do not care as much about this earthly realm, which they see as merely transitory at best, or merely illusory, if not downright fallen. Such beliefs are certainly not helpful, and may in fact be quite harmful.

Fellow Freethinkers,

Thought you all might be interested in this article by Phil Zuckerman in the online version of Psychology Today. Zuckerman, co-author of the article Why The Gods Are Not Winning, was asked recently by a journalist  if he thought the rising secularism is a good thing. The article is his response.
