Humanist Morality

I had a great evening yesterday at the Chaplaincy Centre of the University of Edinburgh, where the Student Humanist Association had asked me to give them a talk on Humanist Morality - a big subject, and one on which I am hardly expert - but what I said seemed to go down well enough, sparking a lively debate which continued in the pub later.

It's just a shame that I hadn't seen this quotation from Bertrand Russell or I would have used it in my slide show: it rather sums up how I feel about the, "is there or isn't there a god?" conversation...


Thanks to Ned, Mary & Stuart for the invitation, and to Mary Catherine from the Chaplaincy Centre for being there too.
