Voltaire’s Smile of Reason

Two hundred years before Jon Stewart, Colbert, The Simpsons, or South Park, Voltaire’s comedy challenged common problems, hypocrisies, and inconsistencies. Living in France at the time of the Enlightenment, Voltaire (1694-1778) championed human rights, reason, and scientific investigation. Among Voltaire’s most popular works is the story Candide which brings attention to many issues still facing us today.

Values and Meanings: Celebrations

By Gleb Tsipursky

"Celebrations" was the topic of the "Values and Meanings" Discussion and Potluck that was held on December 21st. The goal of the "Values and Meanings" discussions is to provide nonbelievers with a forum to talk about our individual values and the kinds of meanings we find in our lives. It aims to create a safe space to share, listen, and explore together without debating, arguing, or trying to convince others.

Good Tidings and Great Joy

Season’s Greetings! Sarah Palin started another round in her supposed war over Christmas by coming to Columbus for a signing of her latest book Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas. Sandwiched between the pagan wreath on the front of Palin’s book and the recipes like peanut butter balls and Rice Krispies Treats in the back, Palin added unfortunate sections of her book attacking atheists and other people who value secular society. Rather than returning Palin’s unfair, hateful remarks, this message brings the good tidings and great joy of Humanism and secularism.
