Yesterday I spoke at my home Humanist community, the Humanist Community at Harvard, to spark a discussion on the possibilities and challenges of building local community spaces for Humanists. This is one of the primary topics of my blog: I believe the development of local, meat space communities for Humanists is critical to our success as a movement, and I spend lots of my time attempting to make that case to the wider freethought movement. This is also why I work for the Humanist Community Project, designed to help develop such communities around the USA and the world.
Here’s the recording of my talk, “God is Dead: So What?” – a shortened version of a talk I’ve given before which addresses the demographic shifts facing the USA and their implications for American civic life.
I’ll be addressing some of the questions which arose as part of our discussion in later posts, as well as answering common criticisms of the idea of Humanist communities.
