Welcome to the Humanist Symposium, installment 57! And just as an fyi, 57 is both an idoneal number and also the smallest number with exactly 10 representations as a sum of 3 distinct primes (thanks, WolframAlpha!)
Humanists and the Self
Leah at The Whore of All the Earth shares the incredibly moving story of how and why she left the Mormon church. It’s one of the most touching deconversion stories I’ve read, and it’s well worth checking out some of the other installments in her spiritual autobiography.
Humanism in the World
Rick from Towards a Rational America and an Enlightened Judaism tells the story of his conflicted sympathies for Israel as a secular Jew.
Humanists and Christianity
No Forbidden Questions cuts right to the heart of many a debate by asking “Who Needs Theology?” If, like me, you enjoy the blog, you may be interested in submitting a guest post while NFQ is without internet next week.
Humanists and Philosophy
Don’t forget to submit in time for the next Humanist Symposium, which will occur August 8th on a blog TBA.
