Miguel Guhlin shares his summary of Greg Epstein's book, Good Without God, and I thought I'd include it here as complexion and nuance for my upcoming MOOC. It follows a path well trodden by people like Kai Nielson and J.L. Mackie. I appreciated Guhlin's honest and forthright consideration of the work. There are three posts, covering chapters one and two, chapter three, and chapters four and five. It considers the questions not only of whether humanists can be good, but even questions like "what are we striving for", including such things as human dignity and compassion.
