Phil Zuckerman Lecture: Society Without God

Sociologist Phil Zuckerman traveled to Scandinavia to ask godless Danes and Swedes—their collective lives measurably better, more stable, more humane than ours—why they don’t worship invisible, tyrannical deities. You can pretend not to know the answer—or be surprised at the U.S. Senate Chaplain’s recent claim that Senators pray on their knees in his office, seeking counsel from the supernatural on public policy. Then get over it, quick, and hear Zuckerman discuss his book, Society Without God: What the Least Religious Nations Can Tell Us About Contentment. Just sayin’, er, prayin’.
