Sense and goodness without God: A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism w/ Richard Carrier

“If God does not exist, then what does?  Is there good and evil, and should we care?  How do we know what’s true anyway?  And can we make any sense of this universe, or our own lives?

“Sense and Goodness without God: A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism answers all these questions in lavish detail, without complex jargon.  A complete worldview is presented and defended, covering every subject from knowledge to art, from metaphysics to morality, from theology to politics.

“Topics include free will, the nature of the universe, the meaning of life, and much more, arguing from scientific evidence that there is only a physical, natural world without gods or spirits, but that we can still live a life of love, meaning, and joy.

“Carrier, former editor-in-chief of the Secular Web, draws on his extensive experience for over ten years defending the worldview of “metaphysical naturalism.”  As the central mission of the Internet Infidels and the Secular Web, this book is a flagship effort to articulate every aspect of what “naturalism” is, at least one coherent version of it.  The title of this book is Sense and Goodness without God because Metaphysical Naturalism is full of sense, and encourages nothing but good.  Reason and acute thinking are its very bedrock, and the love of wisdom its main driving force.” -The Secular Web
