Rebel with a cause In ‘Good Without God,’ Greg Epstein introduces Humanism

from the Harvard Gazette


"Chaplain Greg Epstein of the Harvard Humanist Chaplaincy isn’t your typical clergy member. For one thing, he doesn’t believe in God. For another, he used to be a rock star.

Epstein was a college student studying Buddhism in China when he joined a band. After recording a few albums with his group Sugar Pill, Epstein decided to focus his energies on Humanism. “Personally and professionally, I just felt a lot of people turn to music as a substitute for religion, and for all the rock scene has to offer, it’s not quite that,” he said."
