What does it mean to live one's life without religion? What are the benefits and rewards of secular living? Are their any downsides? For those who are not religious themselves -- or for those who simply desire greater understanding about irreligiosity -- this blog will discuss various aspects of secular living, from the sociological and psychological to the philosophical and political. Drawing on my own research -- as well as the research of many others -- various facets of the secular life will be explored, analyzed, and (when warranted) celebrated.
