Once we've arrived at "non-believer" - where do we go? How we perceive the world and decide to live our lives may change when we leave our beliefs in the supernatural. And for those who never believed in gods, do we approach the world differently than our believer friends, family and neighbors? Greta Christina has recently (yesterday!) released her newest book, The Way of the Heathen: Practicing Atheism in Everyday Life. From Amazon:
So you're an atheist. Now what? The way we deal with life — with love and sex, pleasure and death, reality and making stuff up —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? With her unique blend of compassion and humor, thoughtfulness and snark, Greta Christina most emphatically does not propose a single path to a good atheist life. She offers questions to think about, ideas that may be useful, and encouragement to choose your own way. She addresses complex issues in an accessible, down-to-earth style, including: Why we're here, Sexual transcendence, How humanism helps with depression — except when it doesn’t, Stealing stuff from religion, and much more. Aimed at new and not-so-new atheists, questioning and curious believers, Christina shines a warm, fresh light on the only life we have.
We hope that you will join us this Sunday for our conversation with Greta Christina.
