I am a lawyer in the Los Angeles area. After a lifetime of spiritual search, I have concluded that the best evidence, to date, makes it much more likely than not that there are no supernatural beings involved in our universe and no God or gods.
I am a moderate liberal. I am more liberal than conservative, but also, never hesitate to take on the left when I believe that leftist policies would jeopardize the freedoms I hold dear.
I believe that prostitution among consenting adults should be decriminalized.
I also firmly support a woman's right to choose a safe and legal abortion and support the full provision of family planning and contraceptive services. I maintain that, in the interests of fundamental justice, persons who romantically love others of the same gender should not suffer any less legal rights than those of us who are heterosexual.
However, my primary purpose in establishing this website is to promote the arguments for Atheism/Secular Humanism and to champion the Separation of Church and State. I will also defend free speech and free expression, generally, whenever these liberties are in jeopardy.
It is not my purpose to restrict the legal freedoms of believers. I only want to secure a society in which believers and non believers are equal before the law. On the question of church/state separation,
One does not have to be an Atheist in order to work with me on this issue. Everyone, regardless of individual viewpoint on how the universe is put together, will benefit if government stays out of the God business and if individuals are left free to make their own decisions and lifestyle choices in these delicate matters of conscience.
The arguments against the existence of a God are the most under heard point of view in America, today. An overwhelming number of people consider it self evident that a person cannot be moral without believing in a supernatural being, even though there is a dearth of actual evidence supporting the claim that such a being really exists.
The arguments against the supernatural are powerful both from a philosophical and scientific standpoint. These arguments must be put before the public so that everyone will have access to the compelling reasons for coming to an Atheistic worldview, before deciding whether to believe or not believe.
Rejecting belief in God and in the supernatural, generally, does not necessarily entail any political point of view, beyond those issues touching upon religion and church/state separation. A person can be very right wing on economic and other issues and still be a nonbeliever. My ultimate goal is to help Atheism become so widespread and universal that when people state that they do not believe in God, we will not be able to tell, from that statement alone, what a person's position may be on a wide array of political issues. I am hoping that people from all over the political spectrum and from many diverse points of view will be able to come together and agree on the naturalistic reality that prevails in our world.
It is long overdue for Atheistic arguments to be given a seat at the table of the marketplace of ideas in today's world. I have established this website in the hope of providing a platform for the dissemination of these arguments.
