Summary
"Is life meaningful without religion? Can one be moral and not believe in God? While many Americans believe that God is necessary to secure moral order, Paul Kurtz argues that it is quite possible for rationalists and freethinkers to lead exemplary lives. Kurtz provides nonbelievers with ethical guidelines and encourages all individuals to take personal responsibility for moral excellence."--Jacket
