CDHS Presents "Truth or Happiness: Must Humanists Decide?" - August 12th
In this free, open to the public CDHS presentation; Dr. Gary Brill, Professor of Psychology at Rutgers University, will present his work on the psychological benefits of religion, and whether non-believers can achieve them.
From the CDHS website:
Religious people report greater happiness and satisfaction in life. Research studies find that belief in gods and other supernatural beings provides various psychological benefits that promote well-being. Are these benefits attainable by non-believers, and if so, how?
